Happy Halloween

I said i wouldn't do it...but...here are the kids dressed and ready to go trick or treating..we did it a couple of years ago and there was hardly anyone out doing it too. Well,this year there was alot..
The kids had a ball..we were only out for around an hour all up...
But the got some loot , and i really had a great time talking to the neighbours. All in all it was a lovely community spirit sort of night.
Having said that this morning was quite eventful in a baffled way...poor Connor woke up this morning having great difficulty breathing...and BAM...he had a pretty bad croup episode...so out of the blue ...so we were off to the drs. For both he and Jacob...so Connor  only walked for half of that time tonight.
Here are a few photos...i have discovered they turn out crappy  from my phone..but hey..i'll fix it up later...

Until next time
Lots of it

A Mamas Love #1 is finished!

Here is the finished piece. I included both Maddie and Jacob's miracle blankets on the line. If you missed my last post these were the little snuggly blankets that kept them safe and warm,snuggled and alive when they were on life support as we nearly lost them. It was a miracle that they survived thus "miracle blankets".
Here is an update, I thought I'd enter it in PAINT PARTY FRIDAY...there are so many gorgeous links to look at...why not enter as well and have a bit of fun...


I am quite happy with it, I love the texture and the multitude of layering of paper and then paint. My clothes line has much bigger sized clothes on it now, and yes I still have cricket bats and tennis balls and lots of other toys scattered around my yard....and yes..I really know I am not as skinny as my painting...lol...I wish!!!ha ha ha...but this is what I do...with 6 kids you can imagine my washing...and I HATE DOING WASHING!!! but I do it because I love my family, along with so many other things we do out of love for our family. That is why I am going to do a series of everyday things we do out of love..those unsung things we do all the time...so that is why this is called A MAMAS LOVE #1...


Here it is!!!



(Kristin, that birdie is for you!lol...)
Ok...well that's it for now.
Untile next time
lots of it

A Mama's Love #1

So...here is a little piece I have been working on..it's not finished yet....I had this very old fashioned print and I thought enough is enough. I am going to do a piece of laundry art. It may inspire me to fix up my laundry a bit...
There are so many layers on this, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't! I wanted  to paint an everyday scene of my life as I see it as a mum...I think I am going to paint a series of these things, and call them a mama's love #...this one is number 1. It;s been fun so far, my hubbty says it's not one of his favs, oh well....

That yellow thing on the line is Maddie's miracle blanket...we call it that because it was with her through the time she was on life support,,,it has little stars on it and her name embroidered on it too...my sister gave the twins one each when they were on life support,Jjacob's is white with little clouds...they love them... 

Ok..well...here are some shots of... a mama's love #1..








 I was so into cows at one stage, this is what I took down from my wall in the laundry...
well...
until next time
lots of it
(love I mean)
