It Has Been a Busy Month!

I have been so busy this month! Of course, none of it has been craft related but there have been many photos taken ;0) Why so busy? Well, we had Father's Day, Drew's birthday, Capuchin's birthday and yesterday was mine! At least now the celebrations have ended and we can go back to normal.

In that vein, I have decided that by this time next year, there will be half as much of me to love. Since I have purchased my new shoes (Athlete's Foot in Belconnen ROCK at fittings), I have been getting up at 5:45 each morning to go walking. It has been a nice change and with the warmer weather upon us, it has been a good way to wake up each day. So, I have taken a photo of myself to share what I am like now. As those of you who know me know, this is a rare thing. I hate having my photo taken (partially because I hate the weight gain but also cause I just don't think I look good in photos). And here it is:

Capuchin turned 2 this month. Where has the time gone?! We had a small celebration here at home with some friends and people who are our family here in Canberra. He had a great time and was spoiled by all those who were in attendance. Before I share the photos though, I have to say they were not all taken by me. Thanks to Chantal who took over the photography side of the day! And here he is in all his glory:

We bought him a sandbox to play in so the next weekend was spent putting it together and having a play. It was gorgeous weather and of course Spidermonkey was in on the action too. What was even better, Spidermonkey donated his Tonka trucks for use in the sandbox! Here are a few shots of the boys at play:

Like I said, lots of pictures (and that's not even 1/3 of them)! So a big thanks to all who celebrated with us this month and happy birthday to all those people born in September (we are a special bunch).
One final shot to keep you going until next time (I just love this one):

Love to you all!



  1. Great photos, as always!

    Kim , I am in the same boat as you, hate hate hate having my photo taken, one because I do not think I am photogenic and two it's a smack in the face of how big I am. You are an inspiration and I wish you all the best in your journey to cut yourself in half. I pray there is a mini me to stand next to you and the after shot!

  2. Thank you Kirsty! Happy to have you along for the ride and always willing to chat if you feel the need.
