Happy Birthday Annie!!!

Today is my Mum's birthday. 
As soon as I reminded the boys this morning they all wanted to know how old is she now! 
We have made Annie a cake as a surprise, so I have scheduled this post for after we see her so I don't ruin the surprise!!!
When Tate was born Mum decided she wanted to be called Nannie Annie. Well, Tate had other plans! Nannie Annie turned out to be too much of a mouthful for him so he shortened it to Annie and it's stuck!! EVERYONE (including my friends and their kids) all call my mum Annie!!!

Hope you enjoy your cake!!!

I was looking back on my first 2 of these posts and decided that they need a few sentence to go with them.

Tate can often be found conspiring with his best mate Cahil! 

He is very confident at the hurdles but is getting better

I think the school holiday fun has caught up with this little guy. That or he's growing!

My 1st Giveaway!!

OK peeps it's time to get excited!!!!
I am hosting my very first giveaway Thanks to Word Art Studio

Word Art Studio is the creation of Architectural Photographer, Alexandra Eleftheriou. She spent 12 months walking the around Sydney and it's back streets to take unique photos representing each letter of the alphabet that can be made into unique word art photo's.

Alexandra has been kind enough to give me a Framed piece of Word Art to the value of $214 to give to one lucky winner. That is enough to create your very own 6 letter word art, with standard mat, frame and delivery.
*Extra letters can be purchased for $20ea and ornate frames can also be purchased for an additional cost.

The Word Art website is really easy and straight forward to use and has so much variety in photos to choose from.

So how do you enter I hear you ask!

Well there are 3 easy steps
1. Follow my blog
2. Like my Facebook page
3. Once you have done the first 2 steps leave me your email address in the comments so I can contact you if you are the lucky winner!!!!

See I told you it was easy.

I will be drawing the winner on Tuesday January 29th at 8pm (CDT) and posting the winner here on my blog and also on my facebook page!  

My comments are my own and I was not paid for this post but Alexandra was kind enough to also give me a framed piece of Word Art.






Hi, now that blogger is playing nice, thanks to Suger Coat It for pointing me in the right direction, I can upload my 52 week projects of the boys!!!

Photo Challanges for 2013

I love to take photos.

My kids love to pose for photos.

Not sure if my love of taking photos influenced that at all but either way it works for me.

This year I have decided that I am going to push myself to take nicer pics, and also document my kids over the year!

So I am doing two photo challenges, I won't be following any lists this time as I found that a little difficult. I want to be able to just see something that I like or funny that the kids are doing and use that.

The 2 photo challenges I am doing are:

365 Day Photo Challenge - Simple as it sounds take one photo each day

52 Week Challenge - This one is also as simple as it sounds, but I will be doing it for each of the boys individually and at the end of the year I am going to make them each a photo album of the years pictures.

I am still am unsure how I will share the 365 challenge with you as I think a blog post each day would probably be too much. So I'll keep thinking about it and let you know. In the mean time I have been uploading the photos daily to my facebook page.

I would love any other suggestions you have though.

The 52 week challenge I will share with you once a week on Tuesday mornings.

PS. There is no photo for this post as blogger is playing up and won't let me uplaod one! I will pop in and edit it once it decides to work again.
