Goodness Me this heat is aweful. 43 today 42 tomorrow and it continues for most of the week.
Closed up the house keep it dark.
Hayden started school today he was very excited about it. Year 2 gosh time has gone so fast and by the end of this year Mitch will start school too.
Mitch goes to kindy tomorrow and can't wait but its going to be so hot.
I hope we don't get any black outs that would be just aweful.

A New Look

Thought it was time for a bit of a change to my blog. I think it looks good. I just love what I can do with publisher. Since Jr isn't interested in sleeping I thought I'd make some changes. I don't think he's going to go to bed any time soon. I have these two beady little eyes looking back at me with only the light of the computer and the TV on.
Anyway must try to put him to bed.

Wedding Thankyous

Baby Announcement cards

More examples of the same kind

Making my own photo cards

Been experimenting with making my own cards and using digital software for textures and backgrounds. Sort of incorporating digital scrapbooking into cardmaking and then printing off these as photos.
This is my first card and yes it is Patrick in all the photos.
I will put some more up once I've done them. So I'm sort of expanding my horizons in cardmaking and invitation making business now in what I can now do.
Cardmaking and Invitations are through my business of Bubs & Kisses.
Will make some wedding ones up too soon.

Summer Days

Another warm day today of 33 degrees. So just chillin` with my boys.

Patrick had his 8 week immunisations today. Poor little guy didn't like that much but he is ok sleeping for now. I can't believe how quickly time is going by. I remember when I got down to the last 3 weeks and they were so slow and now they whisk by and he is almost 8weeks ( well Friday he will be 8 weeks ). I don't see my midwife anymore but she saw me every week upto 6 weeks. Patrick is gaining weight and I'm so proud of that. He is now 5.14kg and 60cms in length. This time around I endeavour to exclusively BF Patrick and its going so well. In comparison to the other 2 boys I couldn't do it as long or exclusively so pretty proud this time. His face is changing every week and starting to fill out and looking more and more like Hayden.
Well this weekend we are heading off to the beach to celebrate Australia Day with Family and Friends so it should be great. We always have a game of cricket and everyone participates. The kids play cricket with us and build sandcastles and do some swimming. Its always a great day. We pack a picnic lunch and have it there.
I'm looking forward to school starting as Hayden starts year 2 and Mitch is back to Kindy. Gives me some time at home with Patrick by myself. The only thing is that Sam will be away for a week when school starts as he has to go to Coober Pedy for work again. I hate it when he is away. Will be a test by myself with the 3 boys and juggling school & kindy etc....
Will start going to a new playgroup with my sister in law who has taken over running it. So that should be good and help me get out of the house.
Been thinking of taking Mitch back to swimming to learn again but will see.
Been doing a bit of scrapping with mum for my sister's Mother in law who turns 50 for her birthday. A big job doing an album that's about 30 pages about her life.
Look forward to getting back into scrapping as the mojo is coming back and have been thinking about what I'd like to scrap. Especially my new little boy.
Well Cheers for now.

Time is flying by and Patrick is almost 6weeks old.
He is a lovely placid boy and looks a bit like Hayden my eldest.
Here is a photo of him at 4 weeks Christmas Eve.

And here is a photo of Patrick at 5 weeks. I was experimenting with photo shots of him and managed to get these great shots of him.
