A few pages

Jarred will be 7 tomorrow, so I thought it was about time I used up these photos, that I have had sitting around for the last year. None of the photos were great, but they told the story.

More crappy photos but a very important story to tell. Zac performed in the school musical last year. It's so not his thing, but he did it.

And a very recent photo of Kayla and Jordi on her birthday.

Winter Woolies

Wool and I don't get along - well so I thought.......................
I was reading Sheree's blog and she had created some gorgeous crocheted items and added some links, to learn all the how to's. So armed with hook and wool, I went about teaching myself how to crochet. Well................... I spent a lot of time unpulling, re doing, unpulling and re doing. I was determined to get it. And get it I did. I was so pleased with myself. It's something I have been wanting to learn for a very long time. Thank you Sheree xoxo
I started with the Skull Cap, you can find the pattern HERE
Then got a little bit fancy
Kayla then requested a beret. I had to learn a lot more crocheting techniques for this. She is thrilled with it. You can find the pattern HERE
And I made something for myself. You can find the pattern HERE. This one would be my favourite, it's really thick and warm. Just what I need down here, at this time of the year.

Sweet 16

16 OMG!!! How did this girl get to be 16 so quickly?

A quick photo before school. It was a cold, frosty and very foggy morning. Just like the day she was born.

She is obsessed with Master Chef. When she saw them make the Black Forrest Cake a few weeks ago, she immediately told me that is what she wanted for her birthday cake.

Black Forest Cake - Mum Style :) This thing was huge and weighed a tonne. It was so rich you could only eat 1/2 a piece. Kayla loved it so much, I've been told I have to make it again.

She requested her presents in the afternoon.
Opening her Pandora bracelet from Pop. She was so spoilt!!!

Cake Time

And with Jordi, just before we went out for dinner
