Most of my 2006 Layouts!

I really didn't do alot of layouts this year, but I plan to next year. Bring on 2007! :)

Make-up (boy style):
My DS Caleb got into my friends new $20 hair gel and put the whole lot in his hair! Grrrrr! I added make-up to his face and took this pic! Good 21st pic to get him back I think! He he!

Cool in da Pool:

My DS Caleb at our local outdoor pool! He totally loves the water!

Smile Yer Right:
Both of my boys and my best friend Amy on Owen's birthday. Caleb is doing the 'I am dead trantrum'. Little bugger he is! After the pic is taken he smiles! Grrrrrr!
Gentle Spirit:
My DS Owen and how gentle and kind he is for a boy! ;)

Orange Eyes:
My DS Owen with his cool swimming googles on! He also LOVES the pool!

Grade One:
Owen first day of school! Very simple layout for me.

All I want:
Christmas 2005, all I wanted that year was my boys with me. I was in court with my ex days before Christmas. How things have changed for me this year for me! Thank god :)

Magic Mushroom:
My DS Caleb at a really cool pool in Adeliade. They have mushrooms that spray water.

Our room:
My boys room at our old house in Mawson lakes in 2005. They have a bigger and better room now. I am in the process of creating that for them right now.

Real Women Can Stand Alone:
I did this layout just before I met Neil. (April 2006). I have everything on the list, but not the masters degree! Wishful thinking! When I created this layout I was a single mama on my own.

Observe Art:
One of my favourite places to go is the art gallery. Owen my eldest DS loves art, I took him on a special trip to the art gallery. I took the pic below.

Ball Crawl:
Just Owen having some 'free' play! How fun it is to be a child.

I will Never:
Take my family for granted! When bad things happen my family is always there for me, esp my parents> I wouldn't have lived thru my bad experience if it wasn't for them. My boys helped me also by just being.... well MY BOYS! I love them more then life itself.
My favourite Scent:
Just a fun one :)

The first layout I did after I met Neil. It is the first layout of me and Neil! It is one of the most important layouts about me. It defines me and my past and my future.

The wait:
This is the first layout I have done for Neils son Callum.

School Boy:
Owen's school layout.

Postnatal Depression:
My story about the horrible experience I went thru.

Monthly Anniversary:
Love this layout of us :)

Four in the bed:
This scanned up crap, but it looks cool IRL! Neil and all three of our boys having fun!

DS Caleb turning four! My cutie!

Special YOU:
Neils birthday!

Family Tree:
First family layout! Klimt inspired! Had fun with this one.

Telling my boys about the importance of each other! My boys / me and my brother :)

Thanks for looking :)

Love me xoxox

Mr Owl

Ohhh look how cute my little owl is! I brought him a few days ago! I love him! For the moment he is sitting on my TV! But I have some creative plans for his new home!
I have been on a creative / buying rampage for the past few days! Just stuff for around the house!
I'll post bit by bit! (some stuff is still have half finished). I haven't created a layout in a month! Need to get my butt into action! I would like to finish just one layout this long weekend if I can!

New years eve, we have no kids and plans at the moment! I don't feel like going out! I might but I don't feel like it! But then I hate staying home to>? Grrrrr! I drive myself crazy sometimes! No idea what to do!

Neil and I are going out to dinner tonight, then maybe a a few drinks at the grand hotel! Beautiful can't wait!

~ Christmas 2006 ~

On thursday night Neil and I had four kids running about the house! The two older boys Owen (6) and Christain (7) drove us crazy fighting all of the time! I hired them an x-box game to try and keep them quiet but no.... that made them fight even more! Grrrrr! In the end I put a star wars movie on for them to fall asleep in front of! It worked, lol :) The two younger two Caleb (4) and Taylor (3) played with beanie bears on the bed and watched Winnie the Pooh Season of Giving! They loved it!

On Friday night Neil picked and Callum from Pt Wakefield and I picked up my boys from my ex's house. We went and looked at some amazing Christmas displays all over Adelaide! Awesome night, back got home very late! Soooooo tired!

On Saturday Callum had his little friend Dane over for the day! (Above is a pic I took of my 5 boys, Neil, Callum, Dane, and my two boys Owen and Caleb). Dane is 10 years old and such a wonderful boy! Neil has known Dane for 4 years! His story is a bit said though! When he was a baby his biological father tried to kill him!!!!! His mother now suffers from depression! She sleeps all of the time and thus Dane doesn't have much of a home life! I feel really sorry for him! Neil and I LOVE having him over, he is such a beautiful boy!

This pic is of the four boys having lunch! Cooking for four growing boys is hard work! As I hate cooking! Lol!

This is a pic of the little buggers fighting! At the end of the day Callum had two sore red eyes and Caleb my four year old had a black eye!!!!!

After lunch we had a lolly hunt! Neil and I hid 160 lollies all over the backyard! All four boys had a bag to collect the lollies in! They had sooooo much fun! We helped Caleb out abit! :)

On Christmas eve we had my parents over for a hot turkey lunch. These are just a few pics of Neil (and his ho ho ho hat) and our boys!

Caleb and his new batman costume! The day before he was buzz and the day before that he was spiderman! Cute!

This is Owen sitting quietly and eatting lollies from a Christmas stocking my parents gave him!

This is Callum playing with the new professional golf clubs my dad brought him.

Dane loved the golf clubs also! (For Christmas Neil and I got Dane a new DVD and lots of yummy food and drink for him to take home! Just in case his mum doesn't get him anything for Christmas).

Christmas eve night! A beer and cookie for santa! And a little red Christmas candle (that Owen made) for Santa to find his way in the dark.

Christmas Morning! Callum woke up at 6am! OMG! So we had to wake up my boys! Caleb didn't want to get out of bed, he was cold, lol!

Owen's BAD bed hair! But he was happy to get up, what a shock! (he hates getting up for school).

Boys x-mas morning, as u get imagine........ TOTALLY exited! To make it even more magical Neil sprinkled flour all over the floor on Christmas eve (to make it look like it came off Santa). The effect was awesome! He cleaned it up lol, not me!



Neil and I Christmas morning! Our first ever Christmas together! My baby brought me an amazing mp3 player! Lucky girl I am!

This is caleb and some of his Christmas presents:
and Owen.

What is the first thing Caleb does after he opens his presents>? He runs for the trampoline and jumps up and down with his superman cape on! Looks really cute from the window! A mini superman in our backyard! He is really good on it! He can jump really high!
Neil and the Christmas Teddy and little flower I got him! He also got an MP3 stero for the lounge!

Neil and I had to give our boys to our other partners at 11am! Then we had the whole afternoon/night to ourselves! Totally exhausted from looking after all the kiddies! We spent x-mas lunch at my brother houses and had a great day!

Our first Christmas together! I love this beautiful and amazing man! He has rocked my world! Totally the best present eva!!!!

Yesterday, I went to the shops, agh! I HATE CHRISTMAS SHOPPING, when it is that busy! Mum and I had lunch and then I rushed home to get away from the peak hour traffic! Everything is so crazy this time of year! Neil and I had Chinese take away for tea and then just chilled out outside! (so warm, calm and nice outside). Neil fall asleep and I watched a DVD, had the Christmas lights on and these beautiful red leadlight looking candles alight! Agh, bliss!

What a MESS!
This was the state of our lounge room Tuesday night! We went shopping to get all the toys for the boys finished, and then after tea Neil spent four hours wrapping all the presents just for the three boys!!! While I sat my butt on the bean bag and scrapped, lol! We watched 12 days of Christmas eve and the lake house! (didn't like either that much!).

I brought this green journal (from spotligh) for my friend for xmas. Inside of the journal is one lined side (for writting) and one blank side (to add photo, pics etc). It also comes with plastic covers to protect the photo etc on the blank side. Pretty cool, I thought! I brought a large felt christmas star and outlined it with sequins. In the middle of the sequins are googley eyes! (They look cool and roll when the journal moves). But my favourite thing is the cats head in the middle! It's a button that cost $6.50, expensive, just for a bloody button! Along the side is just some tied ribbon!

I have been madly trying to get the house super clean as tonight we have my boys and two other kidies here!~ Ages 7, 6, 4 and 3!! Me and Neil have got our work cut out for us tonight I think! We are having pizza for tea, and then I am not sure>? DVD's>? Play outside>? Take them out! OMG! Neil is cool about it and I stress!
