The Scrappin Kats have a christmas card challenge on at the moment.  One card a week and each have a different criteria. I loaded mine a few weeks late :(  Pretty easy and 15 different cards at the end ! win win!

My friend Carolyn's birthday card. 

Wicked Princesses week 3 challenge was "Avant garde" The Lo had to be about the boys and have at least 20 brads or eyelets! staples, mesh paperclips etc.  I found this one a little difficult and only got it done while watching th grand final!

Lachlan turned 14 and Aden turned 17 last week.  They both decided they didn't want to do anything big and Lachlan desperately wanted an ipod touch and some clothes so seeing as he didn't do anything he got what he wanted.  He reckons his ipod is the best thing since sliced bread! 

Aden also didn't want to do anything and for the third year in a row he wasn't here when we woke up for his birthday.  We gave him some money for a flying lesson and a bracket for his tv as well as some clothes.

That is it for the birthdays (thank goodness as I am now BROKE!) now I have to start saving for Christmas (ugg)
The first week of the school holidays, we went to Albury for a basketball tournament (just for something different!)  I would have to say it was one of the best weekends (basketball just happen to get in the way!)
Needless to say we came back with NO YELLOW!
Anyway Patrick, Lachlan & Aden all made the grand finals with Partick successfully defending their title from last year.  Lachlan & Aden both lost their games by 3.  They all played really well and enjoyed themselves.

Patrick looks really happy doesn't he? NOT.

After we left Albury, we went to Rutherglen Cemetery to visit Mark's grandparent's grave.  It was a lovely little cemetery with lots of families buried togather and it was really interesting reading all the headstones.  Most actually had how they died and who they were related to.  One man had on his headstone, the woman beneathe was the first wife Mary and the woman above was Margaret!  The kids found this fascinating!

We went and had a counter meal at a little pub in Rutherglen with friends

and then on to the wineries!

We then went to Allsaints for a little wine and cheese tasting (the kids loved this!)

then we came home and ate all out TRIPLE BRIE and watched the brownlow :)
