Tane's 1st Easter Hat Parade

Friday 26th March 2010.

Today was Tane' s first ever Easter Hat Parade. There is just something so cute about a sea of young faces painted with pink bunny noses and whiskers wearing home made hats of various sizes and shapes singing Easter songs!  It was so gorgeous.  The best part I think was seeing Tane's face light up when he saw Jason and I there.  It was the first thing he looked for when they got to the dome. Check this out...his little face literally popping out of the crowd looking for us.
How gorgoeus. Mind you he progressed to get in trouble for talking, removed from his spot in the line and sat next to Julia for the remainder of the parade!!  He was so excited though and we are now on the countdown to Easter morning.  Here are a few more pics from the day - love the ones of him & Brookie...

Bootcamp Done!

Well this week saw the completion of Bootcamp 2010.  25 Layouts in 6 weeks!!!  Well two of them were doubles actually so that makes it officially 27 layouts.  Proud of myself....YES.  Moreso because I made myself use all photos that I already have in my stash and promised NOT to print any new ones out.  I achieved that, and considering I usually don't work from sketches, I really enjoyed doing just that.  Had a ball and was really pleased with how they turned out.  Today was Tane's second ever footy match (can't remember the score but hew scored a try and did and outstanding tackle to save a try) and Sienna's first ever offical swimming lesson.  My goodness.....did she scream the joint down?  YES, absolutely!  Anyone would think she had never been near water before.  I couldn't help but take a few pictures mid-scream!
What a classic...poor little thing was beside herself.  Anyway, better next time although I think it will be worse cause she knows what she is going for.  Small sacrifice for a life saving skill though....

Simpsons Line up!

14th Feb 2010.
Could not resist taking this photo.  Yet another rainy day at home saw Sienna occupy herself with the Simpsons chess pieces.  She was ever so quiet and had a fantastic time arranging and rearranging the people pieces into different shapes.  This one she was so proud of and she demanded that I come and have a look. 

Arrival of the bus pass & departure of Precious!

Well, today is Saturday and it is still pouring with rain!  We have had an insane amount of rain over the past few weeks.  Tane was meant to have his first footy game for the year today at Mudgeeraba would you believe but fields are too soggy which means three kids indoors....for the whole day!  Had an upsetting start to the day today as "precious" the bearded dragon that we had found on the road during the week has disappeared.  Poor Saige was devastated.  My only hope is that she got out and was not 'facilitated'out of the bucket by a rat or other slithery creature!  What to do now with the box of live crickets that we have down there...hmmm.  Yesterday was a momentus day in Tane's life, yes the BUS PASS finally arrived!  You have no idea, this has been like waiting for christmas.  He literally slept with it last night and is holding now as I type.  He is actually asking how many sleeps till he goes back to school on Monday!  Due to the weather there is not much doing to day I imagine.  I am about 9 LO's away from finishing Bootcamp with Blue Bazaar so that looks like a good option for a rainy day.  OK...shall be back but that is it for now.
