Ok I know, this weeks capture topic was Spring, but it isn’t Spring in Australia it is Autumn. So here are a couple of captures of Autumn here is Oz.
I just love Autumn when the leaves change colour and start to fall, covering the ground with crunchy leaves. Don’t you just love the sound they make when you walk through them.
Here is a tree that I spied and thought that it really gave the feel of Autumn.
I do love looking at spring though, so check out Spring at I should be folding laundry

When I saw that the capture for this week was Sweet, I just knew that it would have to be pictures of my sweet little faces, of course I am a bit biased as they are my sweet little children (not that I would say that all the time of course).
We did a bit of a photo shoot the other day in the garden of the children modeling my hats that I am going to selling, so you even get a sneak peak at them before they go up on our new web site.
He is a natural!

Bubble Baths are the Best!
The little people were having a bubble bath the other day, and I just couldn’t resist taking the camera in the room with them. They just looked so cute all surrounded in bubbles. I don’t really know what it is but the kids LOVE it!.
I remember having a bubble bath with my sister when we were little, they are so much fun. You can use all your imagination. Play, play, play until the water is almost cold.
The Little Man always makes me a Chai Latte as that is my favourite drink, he calls it a Chai Matte which is very cute. They just have fun.

Fun with Play-Doh
They just love Play-Doh, I know that I can have a cup of Tea when they are playing with the Play-Doh
Not good for houses with carpet though, better for tiles or floorboards.
But loads of fun!

Out in the Fresh Air
Really wasn’t sure what to do for this weeks capture, but we decided to get out in the fresh air, at the beach, making the most of it before it gets to cold. In the photos it looks like it was a bit cold, but it was actually just right, not too hot, and not too cold.
Reminds me of the movie The Storm Boy (for those of you who have seen it)
Pelicans are just great. This one was being cheeky, there were a few fishermen fishing off the rocks and he was hanging around waiting for them to catch a fish, then

Make a Stove from a Cardboard Box
The Little Man kept on at me that he wanted a stove and oven like Mummy’s so that he could do his own cooking. So I thought to my self, it can’t be that hard to make one. We just happened to finish a box of Nappy’s so we used the box to make the stove, but you could use any cardboard box that you can get your hands on. Easy peazy!
What you will need
- Cardboard Box
- Roll of paper (I can get rolls at Ikea) or you could use sheets but it may take a bit longer to stick it on.
- Glue Stick

Heading towards Colds & Flu season
I can’t believe that it is not even winter yet and we already have a colds in the house.
We haven’t seen a sniffle or a runny nose for months, and as soon as the weather decides to change and get a bit colder, thats it it starts.
What is it about children and getting colds. We have train tracks coming down faces, we have sleepless nights because we can’t breath, nothing a bit of vics on the chest can’t fix. But we still have colds in the house and it isn’t even winter yet. The little man isn’t even at preschool, we are on school holidays.

Cheeky Monkey Jumping on the bed
One Cheeky Monkey Jumping on the bed, fortunately she didn’t fall off and bump her head.
I was making the bed the other morning, Little Miss decided that it looked like a great opportunity to have a jump around.
What is it about small children and jumping on beds, it must be all children or they wouldn’t have written a song about it.
