Adenoids, cleaning & making money!

Have just finished cleaning the house, made easier by Dave taking the kids to the local footy.
A bit of a mixed title today but much to report on after yesterday!
Taylah's x-ray showed that she does have an enlarged adenoid which is leading to all the problems she's been having for the last 4 months. Trouble breathing, very stuffy, loads of mucus and a very nasally speech. We are going to see the ENT specialist who will discuss with us the option of Shaving the adenoids which is supposed to make it better for her long term. Hmm???
Jack has been a little bu---r this week, but I think he's been unwell, had a temp yesterday and we are also having those lovely 2 yr old tantrems.
On a more positive note, I have had a great week! I received my LSBS order in the mail, with a little present, then I received an order for 3 large photographic prints from my website, all sold sealed and delivered and a very happy customer! Then another little surprise arrived in the mail from a previous comp at the LSBS, very nice. The day before that, I received a phone call to say I had won a $50 gift voucher for IGA through a comp I entered. All my hard work at entering competitions everywhere is finally paying off! Very happy!!!
Now I would like to attatch a couple of pics of my gorgeus kids. The one of Taylah was actally a grab shot by my hubby on Mother's day and I have just discovered actions in Photoshop and had a play around with it! I reckon it looks awesome! Then the one of Jack is from a group of shots I took of him clowning around one day and I played around a little with this one aswell. Now just have to scrap them!

It's been over a week since my last blog, it flies so fast! I have just returned from Cairns, the 2nd trip in a week. It was easier today minus the kids and 2yr old tantrems! We have an appt. with the docs today for Taylah to discuss her xrays on her adenoids! I'm hoping it's not to much of a worry, but she's been having trouble for about 4 months now. Jack had a blood nose last night and it brought back memories of me as a kid, I had them all the time!
I've bee busy with wedding photography, so not alot of scrappng but many ideas going around in my head! Will leave something I dreamed up inspired by a tissue box last week! I used cut outs of actual photos of my frangipanis as embellishments for this page and loving the paint!!!! Till next time!!!!CYA

Cooling off in the Far North!!

I don't know about anyone else who live up this way, but the nights are sure getting cooler! Wish the kids would keep their blankets on, they have woken up with colds again!
LSBS had their May Cybercrop held over the weekend! I coudn't complete all the challenges, but happy with the ones I did! Really chuffed with trying the new 6 x 12" format for layouts and will continue filling the album we made with new pages of my kids' milestones! (There are so may, I want to record and they just keep coming!)Jack has a new bed, no more cot, so will do a LO for that, and in the same week, he has managed to give up the bottle!!!! (Milk bottle that is!) I told him now he has a big boy bed, he is a big boy and big boys don't have bottles, he didn't like the sound of it, but he has been a little trouper and only asked me for a bottle twice in 5 days! So there's another milestone!!!! Well will leave some of my challenges from the CC for you to check out! Happy days everyone!!! :)

Just wanted to share some pics of our beautiful little babies who must've arrived sometime during our weekend away and were there for us to enjoy when we got back. Over the last 10 days I have been photographing them quite a bit, I am standing with my foot in the front door and the camera lens poking out, tryng to be inconspicuous to the babies and the parent birds don't seem to mind,as I'm clicking away, I get a nice surprise when they fly into the shot to feed their young! It is truly amazing and a marvellous little part of nature right at my fingertips. The kids can watch them through the lounge window without scarig them.
I've also included a few of my latest scrapping projects, haven't had alot of time for much but glad to post something!!!:)

A little bit of everything

Well it's been a few days since my last post. We went away for the weekend to Ravenshoe in the Atherton Tablelands. It was cold but nice and great to get away! We stayed with some people who I met over the phone???? (He was the tourist info centre man), and they were lovely, heaps of birds came to visit in the mornings and afternoons and the kids loved it. There were baby kangaroos pottering around in the night and we saw a few of the sights. A steam train ride, waterfalls, the Hot Springs, it was great the kids had a ball, oh and we have never been pulled over for a breathaliser so many times in one weekend! (The Mt Garnet races were on, there would be no escaping in that place!!)

On Friday night I went own to Cairns and caught up with a few scrapping ladies! It was really great! I made a little owl, which I think is cute and almost finished a layout, but it was hard srapping and talking at the same time, so I chose the talking and getting to know people option. I will add my creations in the next few days!

We have 2 baby sunbirds in a nest outide our front door at the moment and I have just got some great shots of mother and father feeing them! It is truly amazing and unreal to watch how fast they are growing! I shall post those pics soon to, will let you all know!
Lots of Wedding Photography on at the moment so not much time for scrapping!!
Missing family at the moment!!!!!
