So I have taken a photo of the photo instead!!! Not great but you get the idea. So we queued for about 20 minutes to see Santa, and Harry kept shouting and getting excited each time the door opened for another child to go in... but the moment we stepped into the castle, all hell broke loose! The tears and screaming started, and this was the best photo out of about 5 taken. I kind of expected a bit of resistance from Bear, but didn't expect him to have a full blown screaming fit! The minute I lifted him from Santa's knee he started to smile and talk to Santa like they were bessie mates.... boys!!! Santa doesn't look very happy on the photo either, but I guess it takes it out of you having to be nice to soooooo many crying children in one day! Oliver was very full of himself that he didn't cry, and was super impressed with the Biker Mouse toy he got. When Santa asked him what he wanted for Christmas he told him 3 things on his list, then Santa asked Harry what he wanted.... Oliver interrupted to say that he still had 2 things on the list....LOL!!! Got to make sure you let the big guy know everything you want eh?!?!
Ok so just for a change I have been a very bad blogger!!! But in my defence I have been busy crafting! I have been bitten by the knitting bug again... it happens at this stage of pregnancy, and is a hormone thing and not at all granny like... well that it my story and I am sticking to it!
I have been doing lots of craft activities with the children too, so our house hasn't been glitter free in weeks. I turned to say something to Rob last night and noticed he was twinkling in the light of the Christmas tree with some stray glitter on his face..... of course I didn't tell him, and it was still stuck this morning so off he went to work looking all bootiful and sparkly.... he he he!!!
I have been scrapping a little here and there too, although this is getting tricky already as thing 3 doesn't like me sat hunched over a desk and puts the boot in when I do... very dangerous when armed with a craft knife!
These LOs were done using the last November kit from Sarahscards... can't believe I haven't got round to sharing them already!
These ones were done using the December kit which is currently on sale here. This LO was created using this sketch over on the Rough Draft blog... ok so it is loosely based on a rotated sketch, but I was really happy with the outcome. Don't forget to share your LOs for the sketches to be in with a chance to win a RAK... but more importantly because the sketches are fab and really get the creative juices flowing!This LO was done at the crop a couple of weekends ago... a just because LO straight from my head, but using all the new goodies I bought from Sarah on the day.... seriously I don't know why I bother taking stash, I always use the stuff I buy new!
We went to Mum's at the weekend for the last time before Christmas, mainly because we wanted to take the boys to see the Santa there. We have a classic photo, but I can't for the life of me find the scanner software to upload it tonight... will have a hunt in the morning so I can share with you tomorrow.... guaranteed to make you smile!!!
Hi I'm Lou (or Louise if you’re my mum or it’s a Sunday or I’ve been naughty), I'm a busy mum to Oliver (8), Harry (4) and Drew (2). I'm a high school Art teacher currently on a break whilst the litluns are little. Although there are days when going back to work is very appealing, I am loving spending time at home with my boys. I'm currently a registered childminder, so have other people paying me for their kids to mither me and destroy my house too... lol!
This blog is a place for me to share my scrapbook pages with anyone who is interested in seeing them.... I have a lot of friends in 'real life' who just don't get it. If you do happen to stumble across my blog, please leave a comment.... that way I won't feel as though I'm talking to myself!
I also apologise in advance for any typos... my fingers and brain aren't always in sync with each other!
