Happy 80th Birthday Papa!

Papa has turned 80!

and my whole family gathered together and went out for dinner to celebrate

Everyone was there except for us.  I probably would have cut off my right arm to be there to celebrate this occasion.  I can't express how much I love each and every single one of these people in this photo.  I miss them all so much.  It's a different feeling when your around your family - I feel loved, warm, accepted, and most of all I can be myself and I know each of these people love me unconditionally. 

I look at this picture and see so many things.  I see love and laughter.  I see a family that loves eachother no matter what.  This family is there for eachother through thick and thin. 

I miss that feeling.  I miss being around them to feel that love.  I miss them all so much. 

No matter how far away I am, and how long it's been since I've seen them that feeling of love never goes away.  I love these people forever and cherish the way they all still love me.

Whats on my phone, Easter & 18 months

My week in phone pics and Easter sort of go hand in hand, but how did my baby turn 18 months?!?!.  Lilah officially turned 18 months on the 22nd of April.  It does not seem like 18 months has passed since she entered this world. Time certainly does fly.

We've had a good long weekend.  We're off until Wednesday here in Australia because Anzac day was Monday so they gave us the Tuesday off to make up for it being Easter Monday as well.  The kids return to school on Wednesday as well after over 2 weeks off.  As nice as it has been not having to get Eve ready in the mornings and have 2 drop offs and 2 pick-ups and making lunches, it will be nice to go back to normal routine of school. 

This is what our week and weekend looked like:

This is a table that i've been painting.  Hubs sanded it down and primed it and i've managed to get the last coat of paint on it tonight.  While I was doing this the girls were walking around the driveway with my high heels on!. 

The night before Easter.  Matchy Matchy!

I've posted before about our kitten Fifi...well this is out cat Sweetie cuddling with Fifi.  Sweetie had her name already when we adopted her, and she has that name for a reason - because she is so sweet and has really taken Fifi under her wing.  I think Fifi might have been the runt because in the 2 weeks we've had her she hasn't grown at all, and my friend has one of Fifi's sisters and shes much bigger.

This is what the Easter Bunny left for the girls!

Trail of Eggs up the stairs to the girls' rooms

We got up Monday morning and thought "lets get in the car and find a cute little cafe and have brekky", and that's exactly what we did.


Eve's Hot Chocolate.  The Lady did it extra special for her

Hubs Brekky

Don't worry - it's Hot Chocolate!

Dear Eve....

My Grandma sends Eve letters and cards with stickers all the time and Eve LOVES it!.  She gets *really* excited when she sees her name on the envelope and just shrieks with excitement as she opens it.

This is Eve trying to give Lilah a hug and a kiss like Great-Grandma asked, but Lilah wasn't too thrilled about it!

Sickies & The Weekend

It's Monday, and you know what - I'm kinda glad it is and the weekend is over!.  I started the weekend Wednesday night with Lilah being violently sick.  I had to take Thursday off work to be home with her because she was too ill to attend daycare.

Thankfully, she perked up by Friday and all was good over the weekend...until Sunday afternoon hit and Eve got sick too :( 

Despite being sick, we had a pretty good weekend.  I went shopping and out for lunch Sunday with a friend.  We found this uber cool shop with all these shabby chic items for my home.  Unfortunately, I just didn't have the budget to purchase the entire shop, but I did however get these super cool knobs for my dresser. 

A few months back Hubs and I got a new King Size bed (best money spent btw).  We had the intention of purchasing an entire bedroom set, but didn't really find anything we liked.  So we decided to just get the bed and base, and a bedhead which is fabric.  We had 2 new bedside tables which we sanded down and painted white so all we needed was a dresser.  I purchased one from this shop in Sunbury and it was raw pine, so we sanded that down a bit and painted that white as well.  So the only thing I needed and the last final touch to everything was knobs for the dresser...which I got on Sunday.  I was so excited to get them on the dresser last night, only to my HUGE disappointment that they don't fit and are too short :( 

I'll leave you with a few pictures from our Sunday morning.

Yep - that "WW" stands for Weight Watchers. I'm back on the WW train again.  It's the only weightloss program that i've had any success on.  I know a lot of people who have also had success and been happy with it, so why not give it another try?!?!.

I religiously read Nina's blog and she inspired me to start back on WW.  You can find her HERE.

They have a new points system now called ProPoints, so i'm curious how this is going to work.  I'll definitely keep you all updated on the progress.

Is everyone having a good weekend?.  So far so good for us.  I had to take Thursday off work to stay home with Lilah because she wasn't well enough to go to Daycare.  Friday is my normal day off so we caught up on housework and the shopping.  Today we went into Vic Market fora bit, had lunch and have been just hanging out at home.  Sunday I have plans to go shopping with a friend and have lunch,  Hubs will be home so the girls will stay with him, so I plan on enjoying my kid-free afternoon!.

Whats oh my phone (Weekend Edition)

Ok peeps - don't get used to this!.  I took an abundant amount of photos this weekend so I thought I would share them.  We've had a great weekend.  It's Sunday night now and the girls are off to bed and I'm exhausted so i'm about to hit the couch and catch up on all my fave shows.

Heres the weekend:

We got a new kitten!.  She's half siamese and her name is Fifi.  She's so sweet and the girls adore her.
My hairdresser's mom breeds cats and a stray must have gotten to her siamese so she ended up with cross siamese kittens and ended up giving them away.  So when I was there Friday getting my roots done I ofcourse just had to take one!

I went and saw Keith Urban on Saturday night.  It was an amazing concert.  I had such a good time.

 Hubs was home with the girls and sent me this pic of Fifi having a cuddle.

My sister-in-law came over and painted the girls toe nails Sat night.  Lilah loves it!

We saw this car a few cars down from ours after we left the concert - I thought it was funny!

 You take your eyes off Lilah for 1 second and shes got the paper and markers pulled out

 Lilah found Eves little suitcase in her closet and same strolling into my bedroom and waved and said "bye".  She's going on a holiday...all the way to Canada to see Grandma!

 Ok, so before you all start judging me - YES I took the girls to MacDonalds and YES Lilah ate a cheeseburger and a nugget.  I know - i'm a horrible mother!

 We did our grocery shopping Sunday morning and Lilah just had to have a ride.  Took 30 minutes to get her out.
 And we finish our Sunday off with a Hot Cross Bun.
