August: Bits and pieces...part 3

Part 3 is it I promise!

I've been playing around with the Little Moments App.  An easy way to enhance photos. 

Reading some great books...

 Rearranging and decluttering (it never ends!!). 

Book shelf in the boys room.  It stays like this for about 1 day and then ends up a big mess again.  Haha.  

Winters nearly over but this is how we decorated our little corner of the kitchen...

 Had the first golf ball through the window.  We've done well to get this far with 4 boys I'd say!

We sent happy mail to my best friend Bean who's expecting her 3rd baby and my Sister-in-law Belinda who's expecting her 2nd baby.  Babies everywhere at the moment!  Surprisingly I'm  not feeling clucky, just excited.  It was so much fun to put these together! 

This happy mail included a magazine, choccies and some baby singlets. 

This happy mail for my friend included a magazine, giant nutella, and very belated birthday presents for her two girls.

We watched "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" and then realised there was a competition going on win a golden ticket.  Well played Nestle, well played.  I gave them two chances and was done. 

We also made Louis a giant chocolate freckle to congratulate him on his great school concert.  

Super exciting news:  Dylan lost his first tooth finally!!!  

Jayden had fun with this fun printable from here and then we popped it into the happy mail for my friends two girls.  

That's it for thought it was a quiet month?  

August: Bits and pieces...part 2

Here goes part 2.

We had a beautiful sunny winters day and decided to have a picnic outside.  Ethan was home with the sniffles as well. 

I felt very safe with my superheroes by my side...


Our makeshift clothesline...dreaming of the weather being warm enough to make use of it again.

Naughty bunnies got stuck into my parsley...

Book week at school.  The boys dressed up guessed it...SUPERHEROES! 



and Ironman...

Oh and we had an appearance of "Venom" the bad guy spiderman.   (I think?)

We were very lucky to be given tickets to see a performance called Circus Quirkus at the Eastbank centre in Shepparton.   It was such a great day and the performers were amazing.  I have no idea how they do that stuff!!

We made a quick visit to house on the way home because some more windows were in!  This is the view out of the front boys bedroom.

Jayden and I shop in Benalla every fortnight and it was such a beautiful day we stopped off at the playground.  This boy is such a great buddy to shop with.  It's going to be very lonely next year when he's at Kinder. 

Pa came up for a visit and brought his video camera so he could record Louis's big performance at school.  The boys were very happy about that! 

So lucky we have a great music teacher that puts so much effort into these kids. 

Blurry I know, but too cute to leave out!  I love how these brothers love each other so much. 

Pa hiding behind his camera. 

Ethan and his best friend Amy.

There he is in the pink hat.  He did such a great job! 

This is what Jayden thought by the end of the night...

Back up the block for a picnic lunch...

Our bedroom door...

Ethan checking out Dad and Opas work laying chipboard flooring. 

The boys love playing in that dirt...

It's coming along slowly but surely and the excitement just continues to build.
