STILLS: A WEEKLY COLLECTION (WEEK 15)

Linking up with Emma at The Beetle Shack for Weekly Stills.

A morning of skating, James in the red shirt with Sienna coming up behind him in blue and pink.

This one loves skating too.

And the fancy hire skates in 2014.

A treat after all that energy was burned off skating.

Big logs are great for photos, taken at Cedar Creek.

A photo set up to look like James is pushing this big rock.

And me putting my feet in the clear water.

Beside my bed.  Words from Sienna for Mother's Day last year.

Making Chinese Dumplings for the very first time and they were a huge hit with the kids.


Our favourite Five Seed Loaf of bread we made for toast in the mornings.

The extent of our carrot crop.

Playing a new card game on my bed. James got a "Family Card Game" book from the library this week.

James heading off up the street with a school friend for a play date (he calls them hang outs as play date is for little kids he says)

STILLS : A WEEKLY COLLECTION (WEEK 13)

Linking up with Emma at The Beetle Shack for Weekly Stills.

Homework for Sienna - she had to draw something from one of her story books.

Lots of love on the menu this week from Sienna.

Cooking a new chicken recipe.

James enjoying the Swedish Meatballs I made for dinner.

Some welcome rain in Brisbane.

Sienna in her pj's watching some TV with her doggie.

Celebration of Learning at school for Grade 3.  Sienna wrote this little story about The Amazing Bird called Lucky (Aunty Lisa's bird is called Lucky but he's yellow). This was my favourite part of the morning reading the story and I emailed Lisa the photos and she had a tear in her eye it was so adorable.



Sienna and I at school and she was still on crutches last Friday.

One morning the whole neighbourhood was covered in fog..it looked so cool.

I was fascinated with these water droplets on these leaves, they looked like little diamonds (I wish!!!!)

James heading off to a birthday party up the street.

We've had a few games of scrabble this week and just in case you were wondering "Nude" was my word and that's all the letters I had as we unfortunately limited ourselves to half the board.  Some games are like that aren't they.
