Busy,busy....

It has been such a busy couple of weeks...
Unfortunately Nicholas didn't get into the Regional U13's hockey team, but he did well and only just missed out. I watched him play Saturday and noticed he was very very tired. Maybe not so much physically, but mentally. It has been a very big year for him this year, and it's still not over. But at least his name is down at WA Hockey, so next year they will look at him a little closer and maybe, just maybe he might get selected.
It doesn't matter to us though, we are very proud of him to have achieved what he has achieved.

We've also had Jonathan's birthday. He's a big 7 now... they grow up so quickly now don't they. He was a very spoilt little boy, getting a virtual pet, drawing book and pencils, new pyjamas and dressing gown for his birthday. So now we have a German Shepherd called Max...lol... sometimes I think he's a real dog the way the boys all play with him.
And yesterday Jonathan had his birthday party, and he wanted a pirate cake. So after searching high and low for ideas, we settled on a pirate boat. Surprisingly it was relatively easy to make, and looked awesome. It did take me 2 hours to make, and only 2 minutes to sink it... typical hey....
So here is the birthday boy with his cake...

and a better pic of the cake...

And while I was making it, Nicholas asked me why I went to so much trouble to make these cakes... my answer was that I thought they deserved it... mind you sometimes I doubt that the way they were all playing up for me...
So now Kristofer wants a treasure chest for his birthday party....

So today I had to run the online class at Scrapbooking 4 Less... this was my B is for Boy Acrylic Album. It went really well, and some of the girls have now finished and I hope they had fun and enjoyed doing the album.
Here is a pic of the finished album...

Shelley might still have some kits if you want one... reasonably priced too...

So what else has happened... well the washing machine decided to blow up Thursday as I was trying to get all the washing done... so yesterday morning, beside trying to get ready for Jonathan's birthday party, I had to go down and buy a new washing machine too... So I now have a Simpson, and have spent all day today trying to catch up on the washing.
Just as well the taxman was really really nice to me and gave me extra back in my tax return...

I've also done some scrapping this fortnight too...
I made up a set of little bird houses... the bigget is only about 4 and a half inches high...

Aren't they just the cutest....

And last week I got all the Olympic challenges for S4L done....






Now I can't remember what else I did so that will have to do... I do know I didn't get much done this week..

So this coming weekend I actually have a free weekend... woohoo!!! Except I need to clean the house ready for my birthday party the following weekend, and I have to drop Nicholas off for his school camp... my God.. he's going away for a week!!!!

Ok... best I be off... I have a maze album to finish... and must remember to send out some emails.... and the washing machine is about to finish too....
