What a week!

First a layout share....

...using Design Dollies latest colour challenge....

The prize for this month is rather cool.....

.....all you have to do for the chance to win is to enter at least ONE of the 4 colour challenges the Dollies will throw at us during September! Easy!

Another DD layout to show you using this sketch.....

Three circles, three gorgeous girls....what else would I do???

All the green I've been scrapping with lately must have jinxed the weather.
Remember this photo I shared with you in April this year?

Well....check it out now.....

and full dams as well!!!!!!

We've had 50ml of rain in the last few days (in other words.....HEAPS)
....even broke the banks of the MacIntyre yesterday arvo.....

Had to drive hubby's 4wd to work to get through our driveway which was flooded.
Today has turned out gorgeous and sunny - just in time for Kate's soccer semi's - everything looks lifts the spirits and gladdens the heart.

Bring on Spring!
Father's Day....began with pressies in bed, then a BBQ picnic in the backyard.....

(notice the lawn mower in the background - we had to actually mow a spot to lay the rug out!
So RELAXING.......

Tuesday it was off to Tamworth (kid-free!) to see Powderfinger....

....which was totally awesome and had me wondering why we don't go to live shows more often.

Yesterday we celebrated Kate's 11th birthday...... excited about her purple iPod and alarm clock/docking station along with lots of other bits and pieces. This arvo we're off to the circus with a few of her friends.....great timing for a circus to come to town!
Mars Bar cheesecake in the fridge all ready for the occasion.

Managed to squeeze in 3 days of work in between. Phew! I'll be glad for tomorrow...(a sleep-in is on my agenda)....oh, hang on, Tim's asked me to help him re-clad the front of the house tomorrow! No rest for the wicked....

Who Doesn't Love to Dress Up!

After a big weekend of planning and sewing, the girls excitedly underwent their transformations for their school Book Week Parade last Wednesday......

GRUG (aka Mia) from The Grug books by Ted Prior

JANE VOLTURI (aka Bethany) from the Twilight saga

MORDONNA FLOOD (aka Kate) from The Floods series by Colin Thompson

Naturally I organised the morning off work to be there....I wouldn't miss it for the world!
It's the funnest day on the school fave part is when they crank up "I'm A Believer" on the stereo and the whole school makes a conga line behind Miss Angel (the girl's adorable infants teacher) and dances around the playground with all the mums and dads clapping and cheering.

Speaking of BOOKS, since my last reading update I've finished....


....and now I'm quarter of the way into....

....this Millennium series really gets you in. Completely different to what I would normally choose, but I'm loving these books so much!

Enjoy Dad's Day tomorrow....ours looks to be a very damp and rainy one!
Thanks for the visit.
