Crazy Hair Day

Miranda Loved having Crazy Hair for Cheerleading.
I had done Bronte's the day before in 4 sections and as I was doing Miranda's in the before school rush decided dissected the 4 into 8. I was pretty happy with the result.

Happy Days Are.....

Holidays! Holidays Are Happy Days.
We are lucky enough to have a holiday house available to us on the lovely South Coast of NSW.

This holiday was cold, windy but filled with the natural wildlife.
The Girls new beanies I made the day before heading off -using Simplicity Pattern 3534 were well worn
We saw Dolphins Galore on our dolphin cruise on Jervis Bay
A baby Kookaburra visiting our back porch for breakfast

A Kangaroo family -mum, dad and joey in the front yard (and yes Kangaroos do jump down the street here)And many sea gulls all fighting for the next chip - I could have bought many bags of them just to watch Miranda's delight at feeding the sea gulls it was magical.

In Ulludulla Harbourand HusskissonGetting their feet wet in Ulludulla Harbour was as close as we came to swimming these holidays

Instead enjoying walks along the basin down the road from our house.

To end the holiday we stopped at Gerringong for an Ice Cream with T-Rex and a roll down the hill.
Free Plug - If you think our holiday looks fun why not take your family! The house is available to rent year round at an affordable rate, If you mention my blog you may get a discount?

Winter Dresses

Here are some Winter Dresses I made for Miranda
I am really loving Black and White Print fabric with a touch of colour.

Maybe you might just find yourself some in the post?

For the last 2 years now I have taken Bronte to the Sydney Easter Show just mother and daughter, we sit and enjoy some shows and have some rides.
This year Bronte Coaxed me onto the Roller Ghoster and well the faces say it all - there were men dressed up jumping out at you - I had to keep my eyes closed for the rest of the ride.

But she was not going to get me up there (Mega Drop)- I do not think my heart would have taken the plunge. I felt like a mum letting go of her little girl whilst she sat way up there, I just kept praying that she would make it down in one piece - of course she did and with a smile from ear to ear.

Happy Easter

Easter Wouldn't be complete without
The Easter Show
A fun day out milking cows, feeding baby animals, rides, cake decorating and a show
I made these bracelets with the kids names and mobile phone numbers on the back to to safeguard any losses - thankfully they were only used as fashion accessories and not IN Case of Emergency.

A fun day at the park with Bruce's family

and of course Eating Chocolate
