and Joseph kept it steady all the way coming in 11th in the 7 year olds...
...as you can tell it is obviously uncool to smile and look happy as Mum takes your picture in front of your mates...heh, heh, heh!!
Have been busy with Play Centre stuff too...got the Dads working hard out knocking up a raised vege patch for the kids last weekend...Its a small space but should be enough to have some fun growing a variety of veges...a teacher at the school passed on an idea for a very cool project to try and allow us more room to grow things...she suggested we try the upside down bucket idea for growing tomatos...check it out here The vege patch has been constructed in the old sandpit which is under a clear covered verandah so it already has strong beams for us to hang the buckets from in place and will stop those little fingers picking the tomatos before they are ready too!! Will share some pics when we are under way!
The boys are going great guns at their keyboard lessons and the teacher is having to give them extra songs to keep them from getting too far ahead in their songbooks from the others in the class!
Hmmmm I bet you can guess what Joseph was about to do at the end there!! Boys and their obsession with showing their butts huh!! Not suprising really if you know their Uncles lol!!! Just hope he dosn't end his performance the same way at the upcoming Christmas recital!!
Awww....still can't believe it was 10 years ago now!! Love how the Prima Paintables turn out, you really can't go wrong with those and the new Tinkering Ink papers are alot of fun! We had been talking on the forum about using up our older film photos so for my layouts I chose pics from my pre digi camera '90's...its fun to scrap some older memories and good to liven up those old pics!
Thought this was fun check out this awesome wallpaper...you could scrapbook straight onto the wall lol!!
Anyway thats us for another stretch...Patricks birthday next weekend....time to stock up on party poppers and balloons again! He has ordered a Spider man cake...fun times in the kitchen ahead...Jiiimmmmm help....

The tooth fairy did her duty last night...she was a rich one!! Two dollars!! (dang it was all I had in my wallet!!) You always get heaps for the first tooth and not so much for the following ones I've told him...in case next time all I've got is 20c!
In other news...of which there is none really! we are all fine, the animals are fine, the weather has been fine!! which has been fantastic for the holidays...first bit of rain today though....
The avocado tree is dripping with avo's again this year...spot who was sent up to get the ones at the top....
Everyone wave to the crazy guy in the tree....
Dad and the boys had fun making a teepee out of the plentiful bamboo we have around the place...Might have to try growing runner beans up some this year...the seeds we planted a while back are all sprouting away...they'll be ready for transplanting into the garden soon...we have had to fence off the vege patch properly from the goats...Lulu the wiley one soon figured she could smash down the temporary fencing we had around it...but it looks good now Jim has taken down some of the fencing between it and the house so it has become part of the garden as a whole rather than being just stuck out in the paddock.
The weather has even been nice enough for a spot of this on occasion...lol had to crop this pic to spare you the full frontal heh, heh!!
This poor old paddling pool finally gave in to a zillion little holes and we've since invested in a new one for the summer.
Scrapping wise there is a new Kiwi Jack up for the month so head on over for some home grown inspiration
and why not have a go at this one at Scrapbook Studio 1+1+1 challenge deadline is Friday night..
And Lisa has the new theme up for the ATC dares blog 1950's retro!! very cool...can't wait to have a play with this one....
If you are going to SENZ have a fun time and try not to spend all your $$ on the first day lol!! If like me you are staying home :-( then come and check out the forum at Scrapbook Studio
where we'll have some fun things going on for those who can't wangle it to Welly for the weekend!!).
Now lookee here Rae!! what is the meaning of this tagging me lol!! I've always managed to avoid this before or more acurately ignore this before heh, heh...sorry if you were one of the ones who have tagged me and I ignored it....but for the lovely Rae I will give a go...but later...will have to think up some suitably random answers first!
