happenings in my world {zeke's birthday} + T4

my little man zeke turned 3 on saturday 03-04-2008, it has gone by so so fast it's not funny

i've loved every moment with him and feel truely blessed to have him in my life
my life is richer for having him in it..........

now i do feel a wee bit like an unorganized mum, we had his party on sunday and i got NO photos....
how bad is that!!!!!
i went around afterwards and took some photos and edited bits out so it looks a wee bit nice,
everything is on the video which will be great to watch but have no idea how to get any of it on here are a few photos
i had fun with the food, and am disappointed i didn't take photos, we did on white spoons mango salsa with prawns and coriander, asian salad with crunchy noodles and sesame seeds in noodle boxes and individual triffles above......
and it was fun watching zeke jumping on his new trampoline and having fun with the other kids

+ T4
am totally thankful 4 my boy and having the pleasure of the past 3 years with him....he is my little dude

easter childhood memories

if you haven't been over to the lovely sarah at molly's maison, then i suggust you do, it is full of delightful things.......
in sarah's last post here, she wished everyone a happy easter and shared a childhood memory I LOVED IT......

+ it got me thinking about some of my easter childhood are a few

- fejoas remind me of easter, {not sure if any of you know what they are} they are a fruit
  and we used to stay at our cousins who had fejoa trees as a hedge....there where loads

- when me and my cousin renee were bought an easter egg she gobbled hers up straight away, i decided
  to save mine {like i often do with chocolate} and on the way home in the van with all my cousins
  including renee 7 of us in total mum made me share it with everyone {so we all got a tiny bit each} i
  was gutted {my cousin loved it she got extra}

- i always loved easter because we were always around family {our cousins} we were all really
  close and all had the best time together, mum and dad would go to a church convention and us kids
  just got up to no good and it was loads of fun

thanks so much sarah for this post
hope everyone is having a great easter and would love to hear what your childhood memories are!!!!!

diy hutch

well we've been a little busy of late doing a few things up......
what do you do when you need more storage in your office/studio??????
go brand new and spend lots of $$$$$ or scroll around ebay????
i say ebay so i went looking on ebay and came across an old hutch most of them were going for about $80-$90

while opp shopping thee other week i found this one at vinnies for $40.00 so bought it and into the car it went......

me being me i'm just a little bit impatient i sanded a little of it and thought {NA} it will be ok so went ahead and primed it, that evening hubbs came out to help me do the next coat of primer and he scratch the paint to see how well it stuck, what happened?????
that's right it scapped off, so we had to sand it back {i did a little bit, my wonderful hubbs did most}
so we finally got it sanded then primed and hubbs did the final paint last night
it looks so much better and yay for some storage space, i've covered the inside of the doors with a pink and white snake skin wrapping paper i got for $1.00, i will get around to painting the shelves pink
and i covered inside the draw as well
and i figure one day in a bigger house who knows might end up in the kitchen or the garage for
gregs tools hehehehe, sleep tight everyone and have a fab friday lisa xx
