i love this photo of Ella in quiet contemplation. She is actually sitting on Santa's knee and thinking about what she would like for Xmas! Poor old Santa got cropped out of this one! I still have so many of my Christmas photos to do- i might have to have a Xmas week where i do them all in one go to get them scrapped. I certainly have enough supplies to get them done!
Another good night scrapping at the crop on Friday night. I got almost 4 layouts done - and some without flowers again!
This weekend has been pretty busy as usual with Zoe having a cub scout camp which she absolutely LOVED! She had so much fun. I took her and Ella and Lucy out plus 2 other cub friends . Once we had dropped Zoe off it was really nice just to have some time with Lucy and Ella on their own. with 4 kids it can be pretty hard to get much time individually and because Zoe and Hollie are more labour intensive- the middle 2 miss out more. So it was nice just to hang out with them at the playground and have an icecream - they just enjoyed running around and chasing each other on the grass more than anything! This morning i took them shopping and they just loved having mum to themselves for awhile.
Tomorrow Granny comes to stay for almost 2 weeks so that will be great to have her here- she loves the kids and misses them as she lives up in Nelson. Its been awhile since she has been down - like January - so she will notice some big changes in all the girls- Zoe who is so big at 8, Ella who suddenly is 6 and so grown up, Lucy who is 4 in a few weeks who is a delight- and Hollie who is well into the terrible 2 tantrums at the moment! It should be a fun few weeks. Then at the end mum and i head off to Hanmer for a weekend with my 2 sisters coming from Dunedin and Nelson. A child free weekend to spend with my sisters and mum will be fabulous. we are all so busy and live apart so its nice every few years to get together and just chill. The last time was 4 years ago when i just had 2 girls so its well overdue.
I hope to get some scrapping done this week as i have a kit to do for Scrappin Patch that i need to get done in the next 2 weeks before school holidays start as then i will have little opportunity to scrap!
I have heaps of layouts to share but just have to download the photos etc...
