Officially broke now!

September is our busiest month as all the boys birthdays are 10 days apart! the first was Patrick who turned 13! He celebrated with a party and netted lots of  $$$$!
Lachlan was next and turned 15!  he actually didn't want to do anything or have a party so we had a quiet night with the family and watched the footy!
10 days later Aden turned 18!! the poor kid spent the day in lectures in the city!  He didn't really want to do anything either, so we met him in the city and had dinner with the family and then he went to the casino! He was desperately hoping the security guards would ask him for ID (which they did so it made his night!) he spent quite a while losing his dough, but had such a good time!

We arranged to have a cake at the restaurant and then had another cake when we got home.

In the meantime, Christie flew to Perth to compete in the Australian Uni Games playing basketball.  Her team, which won the gold medal at the Southern Uni games, unfortunately lost the bronze medal game in Perth :(
the team had a ball and partied hard!

Then......one week later and it was MY birthday!! see what I mean! I am soooo broke and then when I was shopping in Coles the other day they had a whole aisle with CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS! I mean seriously!
I had a great day and night (just not cooking constitutes a great day!) lol

Christie and Aden went out to celebrate a friends 21st so I didn't get my full family photo! but as you will see how hard it is for me to get a decent photo! I am lucky I suppose, that they actually don't mind having their photo taken! I have friends that get so frustrated when their children won't smile at all!

Aden competed in his last ever school athletics!

and I actually managed to fit some craft in! well not too much but a few cards for friends birthdays!

I have actually done some scrapping but not able to show just yet!
I am going on a retreat this weekend, so hopefully I shall scrap up a storm!

see ya :)
