Almost Christmas.....

It's almost Christmas and i'm almost ready for it. I've got Graham and the kids presents all done. Just have to wrap the kids. So then i've just got to buy the food *drool* i'm doing ham. I thought i might forego the turkey this year. They are so expensive! We have the tree up, well 2 of them. lol And all the lights on the house.

I'm 21.5 weeks pregnant now and still sick. It's a serious pain. I don't know why it's lasting this long. I'm guessing i will be sick the whole entire time. It will be a relief to not be pregnant anymore.

OK so i promised photos of Nicholas's birthday. I can't believe he's 2. He's just so cute. I made a duck cake and Ethan insisted that he wanted a pussy cat cake so i made both. lol Nicholas didn't want me to cut the ducky so we ended up eating the cat on his birthday and the duck the next day...when he wasn't so attached to it. lol

I also turned 14 weeks on Sunday. YAY for the second trimester. I sure hope it's better then the first. Here's a pic -

Those are my new maternity pants - size 12! Those 5kgs i lost came in handy. lol i never would have thought i could fit into a size 12 pair. That makes me happy. I know its dumb but whatever. lol
5 weeks to go until we find out if i'm having a boy or a girl. It's no secret that i want a girl...of course i wanted Nicholas to be a girl but i would't swap him. So while i may cry if it's another boy i'm sure it will work out just fine. :)

I apologise for my absence. Nothing much happens here and plus i've been sick as a dog. You see i'm pregnant again. Almost 12 weeks. Bring on the second trimester!!! Hyperemesis sucks alot. Big time! It has robbed me of the last 2 months and i'm hoping it will leave sometime soon. Though i am feeling heaps better and am not throwing up all the time now - only twice a day. I can sort of handle that. I've lost 5kgs and i feel pretty horrible still but it will will pass.

Nicholas is going to be turning 2 on Sunday. I'll post some cute pics of him then. Ethan keeps insisting his birthday is today, he's just excited to give Nicholas his presents. lol

Happy Anniversary!!!!

It's our 5th wedding anniversary today! :) We were married at 12pm on Saturday 26th April 2003 in the Sydney Australia Temple. It rained a little but thats supposed to be good luck, right? For our reception we had a picnic on the temple grounds with our family and a couple of friends. Alot of changes have taken place since that day. Lots of good stuff and some bad too but i'm glad to be with Graham and hopefully he'll keep me forever and i mean, if it wasn't for him i wouldn't have my 2 beautiful boys. So he's good for something ;)

Scrap happy!

Everyone knows that scrapbooking is of the devil right? First you get lured in because you like your photos to look all pretty. Then you start discovering stores all over town that have cool scrapbooking supplies that you just have to check out and which you inevitably spend hundreds of dollars in. Sucked in i tell you! And don't get me started on the sales! Actually i usually only buy stuff if they are on sale because otherwise they are usually as dear as poison. I've spent a few years scrapbooking now and then. I love making cards and invitations mostly although i have started Ethans scrapbook. Yeah, i've done like 3 or 4 pages. *cough* loser *cough*. The kid is 4 next month and i've only done that much. sheesh, i'm lame.

Anyhow then a friend....who we'll call Kristie...because thats her name, introduced me to digital scrapbooking. Holy addiction Batman! It's so easy - download some templates, download some free kits and whala! scrapbook page!!
Well it does take a bit more effort on my part but it's super fun and addictive. So in the last couple of weeks i've done what it took me a couple of years to do by hand, you know with real paper and stuff. lol I'm in love although i'm guessing that eventually i'm going to run out of free downloads and i'm going to have to pay up.

I think i have to credit the people who i got the downloads from before i go and post them on here, so i'll figure that out and then post them.

A Happy New Year

Last year was the year from hell. I never thought it would end but it did and i'm glad. We had a great Christmas and a very uneventful New Years. We have a few exciting events planned for this year -

1. Ethans' birthday is next month. He's 4. How did my baby get to be 4??? He's growing up waaaay too fast, he's already acting like a teenager, how am i going to cope when he actually becomes one?!
2. Our 5th wedding anniversary in April - 5 whole years. wow.
3. Our trip to the US in September!!! I'm HUGELY excited about this. HUGELY!!
4. My 30th Birthday in October. Yes, i'm quietly freaking out at the thought of turning 30 but then again so is dh since he won't be married to a young chicky babe anymore. lol I am hoping to have a big party. You are all invited of course ;)

Oh and sometime in the next year i hope to have another baby. I don't know when. I'm not in a hurry really but yeah, sometime soon before i get too old and wrinkly would be nice.
