First day of school for 2010

So school has started for another year, Ethan started Year 1 yesterday and Christian started Year 8 today. Ethan really enjoyed his day at school yesterday, after being close to tears in the morning - they have changed the kids classes around, he is looking forward to science today. I am not sure if I will get much conversation from Christian this afternoon about his first day of Year 8 - LOL. They are both growing up way too quickly!

A scrapbooking Saturday night

Saturday night was a very creative and fun night! Tanyah and Nicky both came over to my house and we scrapped til we dropped (nearly) Tanyah didnt leave until 12.45am. We all had our creative juices flowing, even Ethan wanted to sit up with us and scrapbook too. I managed to do 3 layouts on the night, which I am really happy about. I have done a lot of scrapbooking the last week, 9 layouts! (I can't share any at the moment though)

Here is us scrapbooking on Saturday night-

Baby Bella

Last week my sister came down for a visit from Airlie Beach, bringing down the newest addition to the family baby Bella (7 weeks old) :-)

We had a lovely visit with my sister Belinda and her kids (Chloe, Zachary and Bella) - we went to the park, went shopping, went swimming, chatted, laughed and most importantly we took lots of photos - LOL.

I offered to do a photoshoot for my sister and the kids while she was here and here a few shots that I took while she was here:-

We wanted to take some photos of Reiss and Bella together (that was interesting) LOL, don't they always say "dont work with children and animals!" . I got a few good shots of them together, but just had to share this one of Reiss grabbing Bella's arm and sucking it - too cute!

My gorgeous family :-)

For my Christmas present this year, I told Brendan that all I wanted was professional family photos done. Well I got my wish :-) I had the very talented Brisbane photographer Rachel Richter do our family session. We drove up to Brisbane for the day to get the photos done. I received my disc last week and I just absolutely love my photos. If anyone is interested in getting any photos done check out Rachel's blog here.

I have too many favourites, but here is a few:-

Reiss update

I can't believe that Reiss is 6 months old today! Where has this time gone ? He is an absolute joy and we just adore him. He is trying to sit up on his own, he can sit up on his own for a few seconds and then looses his balance, he is squealing and "talking" very loudly, he is such a real little character. His 6 month stats are :- weight 9.12kgs and height 69.5cm

Here are some recent pics of him.
