I love birthdays.... I don't care whether it's mine (which by the way usually includes a full week of celebrations) or a family members, I just love them, AND I love birthday parties. Something about celebrating one special person for one day all of their own that to me is... Continue reading

Lilliana turned Twelve last week and what a year it has been. Watching her grow from a child into a young lady has had her Dad and I shaking our heads at times wondering where our quiet introverted child has gone. And we have been cheering her all the way.... Continue reading

My Lilli..... almost 12 and so very grown up. She has a mind of her own and is very strong willed (kinda like her mumma). But she is also very quiet and dare I say the *s* word? shy, always has been. Our middle child sometimes struggles with finding her... Continue reading

Ohhhhh, yes yes and yes!!!!! WE sound like we have very similar approached to feeding our kids . I have one *picky* eater..... the others we have worked very hard, and encouraged a whole heap, and NOT made a drama out of food... they will try anything and everything, doesn't mean they like it but they TRY. And my littlest one... she is on her own foodie journey and little by little she is eating more and more. GREAT blog post xx
Old camera's.... such good things to find and display. I love that they are usually battered and bruised from use. I love that they are still sturdy enough for my girls to play with. I really would love to know the story behind them though!!! Again, I don't have a... Continue reading
