The children were all packed off yesterday looking shiny and happy. Long may it last! (Master J, the highschooler, is missing from the photo as he was long gone and dodging the camera).
My baby started school for the first time and had a great time. He is right in his element seeing as he has been in and out of the school literally his entire life. He has been for two days now and has been ready both mornings by 7am and stays in his uniform - right down to the hat and shoes - until I drag it off him at bathtime. He is hilarious.
He always did like a costume..........

She had a camp-out birthday party with 8 friends all sleeping over in a tent in the garden. They had a great time debating the cutest Jonas Brother, eating loads of junk food (well not loads, but enough) and getting a tiny bit of sleep.
This layout is one I created for this past weekend's Cybercrop at LSBS. Nic challenged the design team with a last minute summer inspiration challenge and I went with the thong theme from the image she supplied.

I did another couple of layouts that I can't show yet but will share them soon.
This was taken literally seconds before he burst into tears over something I can't even remember. See how his bottom lip and chin are sort of starting to crinkle...oh dear. If you didn't know he was about to bust into tears you would swear he was holding a machete in his hand and preparing to inflict a terrible injury on someone!
This one is Miss Mikaela's new haircut. The kids all had haircuts last week and Miss M decided to have hers all cut off for summer. This is the shortest it has ever been I think and she loves it. It really does suit her I think.
And lastly, this is Miss Piper, my niece. These photos were taken at the park today and she seriously made me crack up with her antics. Normally she runs a mile when the camera comes out but today she performed for me! Lots of smooshed up faces as she said 'Cheeeese' LOL.
She is so cute :)
I managed to finish a few layouts tonight from the crop on Saturday and will photograph and share them tomorrow. It felt good to scrap again!

I have a thing for labeling and even labeled my photos...to show all the labels *sigh*. I need to get out more.
Dining Rooom - Notice our big new square dining table for eight. It takes up a lot of space but is just brilliant.
The Little Guys room - More Ikea storage goodness...lots of tubs and fantastic plastic.
Their bunk beds. We have gone with an animated theme in here simply due to the fact that they are six and four and that's what they are into. You'll notice Hammie and Vern from Under the Hedge have taken up residence.
And one of the little men in the family. Ethan received a DS for Christmas and loves it. For my outdoor boy to be so enamoured with something electronic is quite amazing. Connor is a bit put out that he is the only one who doesn't have one but he'll have to wait his turn.

That's right, it is all happening here at the Leworthy residence.
We are nicely settled at the new house and have unpacked all but a few boxes of books which need some new shelves. May have to head back to Ikea for those soon...they should have a frequent shoppers card for customers like me LOL.
I'll post some pics of the new house in my next post. First of all is a catch up of Christmas and the last couple of weeks. As we moved in on the 23rd of December (yes this was nuts) we had a fairly strange Christmas. We were pretty moved in but had no decorations or tree which made for a bland old Christmas! Luckily Nanny stepped in and saved the day on Christmas eve and brought her table top Christmas tree around to add a little festive feel to the place.
Christmas day was spent at my sister's place (Tracey) and it was lovely. Lots of gorgeous food, great gifts and awesome company. It was super relaxing and the kids, especially, had a ball.
Look how much lunch Tracey had!
Hehe just kidding. Tracey is due with her first baby in just 3 weeks and little baby McGreevy was kicking up a storm for us all on Christmas day. Miss Mikaela was quite fascinated by it all and felt her new little cousin-to-be moving around in there.
Moving in for a closer look...this one cracks me up!
Life is busy at the moment with school holidays and work. I started work at Scrapbook Princess this week, actually working in the store, as well as my teaching regular classes. I am really enjoying it and the other girls are fantastic. We are juggling everything OK right now but it will be easier when school goes back. Master Connor is gearing up for Prep in a few weeks and is cherishing his letter from his new teacher. He has carted it around for days. Hopefully the novelty will last LOL.
