Introducing Callie-the newest addition to our family. Callie has been with us for 2 weeks now and has fit in like she has been here all her life. We are overwhelmed with how smart she is and how quickly she has learnt to do things.
She is full of personailty and is so gentle with Mischa & Milli. Already she has grown immensely and has a lot more to do. It's funny how quickly you can fall in love with this Weimaraner breed!

I said I'd share some photos, so here they are...The first incase you hadn't guessed is of Keith Urban. Some friends & I went down to see his show in Sydney and to put it mildly, he was absolutely amazing!! The support act-Lady Antebellum was also great. He came through the crowd & sang up close to everyone (you can see how close with the below picture!) as well as signing and giving one of his guitars away! If you ever get the chance to go see him, don't let it go.
I couldn't resist sharing this photo too. It is of the girls watching their Mum & Dad clean the house. Clearly it was just all a bit too much for them and they had to have a rest. It's a hard life...
Ok... now onto the home improvements. If you didn't know what out the back looked like well-some of the concrete was the natural colour and there was a whole section that was also RED-Yuk! We have recently painted it now and it is all ONE colour. It looks much bigger than what it did before and much cleaner!And finally, here it is. The completed kitchen with glass splash back-all finished! Hooray! I love it and looking back at old photos I just can't believe how much of a difference there is!

What a productive weekend! Here are most of the pages I was able to do. I still have one that is not quite finished as well as 2 that whenever I load them, they load sideways-go figure?? And it doesn't matter how many times I change them.
It was so great to see everybody again at the Retreat to Main Creek! So well organised by Kate. Marion, LOVED your cooking as usual, you are amazing! Peta had her awesome shop there and I think everyone over-spent a wee bit and of course the laughs and good humour. Bev & Nat thankyou for your ear, always ready to listen & never to judge, I always feel much lighter afterwards xxx
And of course Michelle and her nifty tips, Barb for her endless donation of paint, Bron and her humour, Haylie for driving us there and sharing a room with me (very patient she was) and all the new faces!
It's a great feeling to come home and file all the pages away and see the albums grow!

The Year 2011....what does this year hold for me? I decided that after my year last year, that 2011 has to be my year. Already it has started off amazing, Brad and I went to New Zealand, he proposed & I said yes! I was offered another year's full time at work, another Stage 3 class. The wedding plans are coming along great, with all the important things booked.
This year for me will be me. Enjoying the wedding planning, Brad & I will be saving really hard! Being thankful that I have another year of full time work & that it is a job that I love. Making time for family & doing 'little' jobs to the house that don't cost a fortune.
I had my Aunty Tracy up this weekend and she is now so into scrapping that she bought up all her stuff. I even scrapped 3 pages, which I would not have done if she wasn't here and so keen! I plan to do a lot more scrapbooking this year & I hope the new bi-monthly kits from scrapbookingfromscratch will encourage me! I looked at the page amount in my 2010 album and it was dismal! When I get a chance, I will upload photos of the pages as well as the final, completed kitchen with splashback!
