As always I seem to have fallen way behind with blogging and now it’s got to the point where I just have no idea what to blog about as it’s been so long and so much has happened in the past few months.
Most of you (if anyone is still out there?!?) catch up on our life through Facebook and I sometimes wonder what the point of blogging is now but then I look back on my blog and I like to flick through the older posts and have a read. I also enjoy reading other peoples blogs so I’ll continue in my slack way, bear with me if you want too. Sometimes I also have a little worry at the back of my mind about writing and sharing in such an open forum but then again I’m not sure how exciting my rambles would really be to some hacker! lol
The past few months have been a blur of sickness, pregnancy, birthday parties, party planning, day to day chores, life and yucky old Winter. This pregnancy has been a lot harder than it was with Grace so theirs been a fair bit of couch time and just trying to make it from getting up in the morning to falling into bed at night. I’m hanging out for some warm sun and fun in Summer, bring it on!
During June/July we celebrate a lot of family and friends birthdays, they seem to all cluster together and we are just going to the last party this weekend then there’s a break for a month or so.
I turned “30” in June and celebrated in style with a Winter Wonderland party which although the planning and organising almost did me (flu’s, pregnancy and party planning don’t mix) in it was a fantastic way to see in another decade! We celebrated with all our friends and family and had a blast!
Then a few weeks later Grace turned “4" and we planned a Strawberry shortcake party for her. It was meant to be a small party but somehow when I get started things get bigger and bigger and soon we had 15 kids plus parents for a full on party! Loads of fun though, we enjoyed the warmest day on record for Christchurch in July (23C) so it was fab.
The colours for the party were hot pink, lime green and red and it all came together so well! We had face painting and a treasure hunt, a strawberry themed afternoon tea.
The cake was a strawberry butter cake with lemon frosting then rolled fondant.
Each child got a wee goodie bag.
The table all ready.
Will try to blog again sooner but I’m not making any promises! lol
I do have a few pages to share, I haven’t been very creative in the scrapbook field but I’m trying hard to get Grace’s baby story told before the next one arrives so bear with me
