Lunch with Family
We have just had a very full, and very fun weekend with the family.
This picture was taken after a lovely lunch near the wharf in the city.
A small story to make you laugh, while we were having lunch, Uncle took the children for a walk and the little mans hat blew off into the water. He was extremely distressed that he lost his hat. Daddy went to see if he could get it, which he did, but not without going in the water for a swim fully clothed. The things we do for our children, it was just

You Capture for this week is Shapes, what a great topic, you can do soooo much with this one.
It just so happened that I was in the big city of Sydney last weekend and I just so happened to capture this great picture of the famous Sydney Opera house, now that is an interesting shape if ever I saw one. I think because it is such a great shape that it only needs the one picture.

Eggs are yummy!
We have over the years been told that we should be limiting our intake of eggs as they contain dietary cholesterol. But, recent studies have now shown that eggs in fact contain high levels of lecithin, which can help to lower cholesterol. So we should not be limiting our intake at all.
Excessive consumption of any food, including eggs, is not a good idea. But , now you don’t have to avoid eating eggs. It is a good idea to take advantage of the high nutrient content of eggs, they can also give your diet a great variety as they can be used in a great variety of recipes,

I really really dislike dinner time in my house, dinner time for the children that is. I really don’t know what else to do.
Here is the story, dinner time comes, I have all these plans for what I am going to make the children. I always said that I would not make two meals, one for them, and one for us, but they eat to early and my husband is not home yet, so I wait and eat with him.
I will always sit with the children while they are eating, or should I say not eating their dinner. I ask the Little Man what he would like for his

Story Time Before Bed
Most nights Daddy will read the children a story before they goto bed.
One night during the week they looked so cute sitting there on the couch I couldn’t resist a photographic moment.

It is my birthday next week and my beautiful sister wanted to give me my birthday present, but I had to have it early and I had to go somewhere, but I had no idea where I was going. My sister loves to give experiences rather than just things for your birthday.
I left the children in the safe hands of the grandparents and went and stayed at my sisters house. We had to get up early and be in the car by 7.30am. I was a bit excited because days with my sister are always great it didn’t really matter where we were going.
Driving, driving, driving, we were heading in

Kisses for Teddy
This week was a great topic, kisses, but I really ran out of time to get some great shots.
But what I did get was pretty good anyway, if I do say so myself. Little Miss loves kisses and she loves to give her little, very well loved teddy big kisses, when she does it you get the great sound of a really great kiss.
This is what I came up with, she really loves this little teddy, he goes to bed with her every night.
Check out some other great kisses at I should be folding laundry.
Little Man is doing really well now, and has managed to make it past the terrible twos/threes stage and is slowly making it over the top to the hill.
Little Miss is a totally different story, I never realised how different boys and girls really are until you have one of each.
Little Miss was a very plasid and gentle baby, she would sleep really well and just goo and gaa like a good little baby, we really thought that she was going to be such a little gem. Well didn’t that change as she has grown up a bit, she is a bit of a monster child. Lucky she is cute!.

Artist in the Making
As you know the Little Man started pre-school last week.
This is the artwork that he came home with, what a great painting.
I said to him that I will have to take a picture of his painting, and show all on the blog.

This weeks You Capture topic is Work, well that is an interesting one for me as I don’t go to work. I am a stay home mum, but I don’t consider looking after the children as work as it is more fun than work.
So I had to think about it a bit this week and this is what I have come up with, well it wasn’t really that difficult.
Ironing, now that is work and it just seems to be never ending. I only just finished and then I turn around and the basket is full up again. arghhhh
Washing up and cleaning the kitchen now that is definitely work.
This is my
