{Sharing Xmas presents}

I decided that I would this year for Xmas make my parents, David's mum and my nan and pop a book which holds 100 questions about their lives, I have altered some blank journals so that they can record the answers and I can't wait to read them once they have finished them.

I think these journals will be fabulous for Royce and chelsea in years to come and I cannot wait myself to read some of the answers.

So 2 down 3 to go!!!!

Well our weekend just gone was huge!!!!  Here in Gundagai every November we have a Race meeting called the Snake Gully Cup this is two day weekend with the the Cup on Friday and races again Saturday.

Friday is massive with 1000's of people coming from everywhere, ladies get a chance to dress up and well after the races the crowd heads up town and the streets are packed. We have a baby sitter so the day is childless and such a great day!

Must say I woke up Saturday with a very bad red wine headache, but the weekend was great.

Some photo's of our weekend.

{Weekend News}

Well I had the best weekend - started on Thursday when I headed off to Canberra to stay with my mum. I roped her into to coming along to Penerith with me for the weekend and she just loved it.

We drove down Friday morning and hit the Paper Arts at around 11.00, ran into some of my scrapping buddies including the talented Alison Shearer who was working @ D'Craft booth had really great kits to buy.

After a few hours we then headed up to the main drag of Penerith to buy Chelsea some school shoes (we won't go there with what happened to her perfectly good school shoes)!!! After searching for any good shops and deciding that were none by pure chance I ran into another scrapping buddy KATHRYN who steered us in the right direction to the biggest mall ever so thanks heaps Kathyrn, I spent way too much !!!!

Friday night mum, Mia and I had a great meal @ the bistro and a yummy cocktail and headed off to bed really ealry which was a little different to normal :0) - woke up bright and early to go to class.

We stopped off at Krispy Kreme's for a coffee to get the day started and ran into Elsie Flannigan herself buying up donuts for her morning class she is such a sweetie!!!

Our first class was with Carrie Utley and we made 3 cute little albums from scratch using Chatterbox products really liked the end result.......


Then of course we headed into the class of the deligtful Elsie I just love what we have made so Elise all very bright and I have even drawn all over my photo'sElsies_class :0)!!!!
