so I am updating my blog from my new 64GB iPad that my amazing hubby got for me (total surprise) and he gave it to me at my surprise birthday dinner he orchestrated. I am so lucky, blessed with him and my family …. here are some photos


Happy Birthday ME – Actually Birthday’s Galore!

Birthdays Galore! - and WE'RE BAAACK !!

Kenzie (10) Me (22 x2 + 1 !!) and Melanie (16) at our combined birthday dinner with hubby’s parents. 

Can you see the teeny tiny blue dot sparkly earring in Kenzie’s left ear ?? yeppers, double digit rite passage – pierced ears!

Mother and 2 daughters with birthdays all within a week!!

I grew up with this phenomenon too – My Sister Melanie (July 1st) Me (July 3rd) and my Mum (July 6th)

Now it repeats with Kenzie (June 27th) Melanie (July 1st – yes!) and Me (July 3rd)

Wonder if it will repeat in the next generation with either of these 2 girls!!

Whirlwind WEEK since returning back from our 3 week trip to England late Tues June 26th

Kenzie’s b’day, getting her ears pierced, her pool party, loads more photos taken (on top of the 1000+ taken in England!)

Wow I have SO many photos to process and upload to our website as well as videos (to my mumto4ms YouTube account)

Our exit from Manchester airport was worthy of a televised Ozzy Osborne Crazy Family reality show – wish we COULD get paid for our ‘uniqueness!’ – people actually CLAPPED when we finally were done and left the checkin area !!! Slight hint here – Hubby is the main character!!!

Can you imagine how much WORSE it could have been if the bombing (hence raised security alert at all airports in England) had happened before we left !!

We had 4 more suitcases on the way back than the way there – filled with mostly beer, chocolate and English sweets!!

Been a month since my last ‘daily picture’ upload – hopefully now I can continue to do one a day – got plenty of material!

Happy Birthday to ME!

OK, so hubs in on duty today (working a payback for someone else), Melanie left this morning at 7am for the week (youth REVO camp) and so it’s a mellow birthday (so mellow, no-one at Jazzercise remembered it was my birthday – *I* remember theirs!) Did have fun with my girls last Friday night though – this photo is from that night

Happy Birthday Melanie – she’s 15

Last Night at the “Howl to the Moon” was a blast – will upload some photos probably later this weekend (Check the “What’s New” under “The Media” heading.

This is for Melanie, a young woman – She is thrilled with her iPod Nano 🙂

I’m Going OUT :)

This is where my friends (Karen & Warren and Jennifer & Rob) are taking me (and Nils!) for my birthday night out tonight….in Ft Lauderdale

Good job since I need to recover from discovering that over $1100 worth of ‘calls to Guatamala’ have been racked up on Melanie’s lost cell phone – OY!! Expensive lesson there 😦

Happy Birthday Kenzie
