And so ends the mid year holidays ... *phew*

Credits: ** Designs by Sue Cummings (Oscraps) grid overlay and word art - favourite things; colour blocks

What an action packed two weeks - I have to admit I am exhausted. We have:

seen a fabulous magician
had a fun packed visit from Grandma & Pa
played heaps of games - monopoly, cards, battleship
learnt origami
made magic wands
seen Wicked and Disney Princess's on Ice
been out to lunch
had a fabulous party for Ethan and Ella
made stained glass windows
decorated heart boxes at the hardware store
visited Hugh's specialist and fingers crossed it wont be long
Hugh made cookies all by himself
played at the park
Hugh had a frog on his head in the reptile show
completed painting panels at the shopping centre
Grandma tried to teach Katie to knit

can you see why I am exhausted? LOL!

I had to do this separate page below as it shows my two favourite girls - my mother and daughter. My mother is a bit of a wag (Aussie slang for a funny person) and she had Katie in hysterics as they played snap! There were even injuries and kisses better! LOL

I love "the battle" and your daughter with your mom. Love too the one with long journaling I need to read few times... but it so "touchant et sincère " in french.
