Sunday Snapshot


This week for Snap shot Sunday I am sharing some fun pictures that I got lucky enough to catch this week on the camera. It’s really moments like this that make parenting so much fun.  So enjoy!!

Hannah would spend all her life hanging upside down… she LOVES it!

Monkey hat!!


Skills are rife in this family 😉

Poking her tongue out at me




Monday Music Moves Me and Snapshot Sunday all in one!


Because I win with remembering and completing tasks sometimes!!

First up is Snapshot Sunday, a little weekly thing I run with Kirsten from Gone Bananas. This week, my snapshot is of…. Kirsten! And Kirsten’s hat.

Kirsten from Gone Bananas and her new sock monkey hat!

Just as a few other mentions, this week I’ve also made:

A Very Hungry Caterpillar newborn hat

Toddler hat - themed on Happy Feet 2

I feel very accomplished! I’ve also nearly finished a sock monkey hat for my youngest… it needs ear tassels for her to nom on, eyes, ears and a mouth… so I am hoping a post for that cuteness later this afternoon.

And now! *drumroll!* I was made one of the spotlight dancers over on XmasDolly’s blog! WOOT! *danceflailskipmoonwalk* So if you’ve come visiting from over there, welcome, welcome… yes, I am insane (who wouldn’t be with 6 children… or to have 6 children?), but I am heavily medicated with lots of awesome chocolate and baked goods!

Spotlight Dancers

For my music selections today I have chosen to go with the colours, and I didn’t really have a prom (not an Australian custom). So here we go!

You can’t do a colour post without this one I think! Purple People Eater

This was also frequently played when I was growing up by my parents: Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini

and finally…. Somewhere Over the Rainbow… it encompasses ALL colours and I think is one of my all time favourite songs… this version in particular!

Happy Monday all!!


Sunday Snapshot – Family festive fun


This week for Sunday Snapshot, I am going to share pictures of my family enjoying the pumpkin carving party that I organised… with help from Kirsten and Susie. We ended up having close to 40 people in our front yard, and I think everyone had a great time. There was a lot of awesome food which included macaroni salad, pumpkin rolls, oreo spiders, oreo truffles (OMG yum!), sausage rolls and some really great cupcakes. (My Italian chicken slow cooker dish and bread rolls were hit considering how fast they were snapped up!).

From my point of view, it was mostly controlled insanity – with the exception of my husband disappearing for an hour in search of dry ice o_O. People enjoyed the crafts, didn’t seem to mind I lost half the carving implements for a while and only found the patterns at the last minute. It was a good time – and one that we will repeat next year.

So, with that said, I give you my “little” family enjoying the festivities. Happy Halloween!

Chocolate googly eyes!!

In action... looking for pumpkin carving tools and feeding a baby... multi-tasking rules!

Sean carving pumpkins with Naomi, Samantha and some of Samantha's friends... and why yes, yes Sean is dressed like a peice of pizza 🙂

Everyone loves pizza!!!

"Ewwwwww Mummy! It feels gross!"

Dancing to "Thriller"... Gabby was more interested in nomming her thumb...

Leia has lived in this dance costume for the better part of a week... she LOVES it.

Crafting - paper cup spiders, rainbow scratch bats, cats and pumpkins, foam pumpkins, cats and spiders... awesome!!

And finally…. since I know you were all wondering about Hannah…

She spent the entire party drinking way too much juice, eating chocolate (since it was obviously all for her) and playing in the dirt. Way to go building that immune system my lovely!!
