Hi there guys~

Are you well? I've been just great in case you were wondering why I've been so quiet on the blog front!

We haven't been doing anything earth-shatteringly interesting of late. Although we did go out for a family supper to the Spur steak ranch tonight...& I suppose in the family of a 3.3/4yr old, that is pretty interesting stuff.
T & I actually had eye-to-eye time for a change & enjoyed our food hot,which is unusual. Normal protocol is: gobble whilst trying not to choke, as you swallow chunks whole or send your food back 8 or so times during your stay, while you chase him around the restaurant.....all because tonight Max was on his own private mission. He didn't need one moments minding. He did pop in to touch base with us every so often & to stuff some more toasties & fries in his beak...and then he was off again to play. At one stage we saw him sitting comfortably at the table of some perfect strangers. He was swinging his legs and chewing, which was a bit of a worry at the time, seeing as it wasn't his own food he could have been eating. I opted to remain ignorant at that stage :o) . He happily chatted up a storm with them...our boy the socialite LOL!

This is a pic of him giving me a puppet show...he's the
doctor & she's the nurse...complete with nurse voice.

I am scrapping like mad for Friday's Becky Higgins sketch deadline. I am even attempting a double page L.O & actually loving it. JO! no finger pointing please! I know, I know, I did say @ one stage, that 'doubles were out'....forgive me I was wrong. Are any of you submitting too?

I have a question for you...what size L.O do you prefer scrapping???

* 12x12
* 24x12
* 8x8
* 6x6

I'll leave you with this adorable pic of Max doing what he does best....looking darn CUTE!

Have a great day where ever you find yourself because the Lord came to give us life & life more abundantly! So have some fun will ya!



  1. Lovely post. My first choice (don't tell Jo) 24x12 and second choice is 12x12.

  2. Yay for Spur! I wonder how long before we can go to a real restaurant without bothering the whole place. Good fun.

  3. Hmm, well we all know LO's are not my thing. Mini's would be me BUT if I had to choose I say 81/2 x 12. Love that size but tend to stick with 12x12 cos of the lack of A4 albums.

  4. Lately it's been 8.5 x 11 for me! I just got myself a new album to house the latest layouts, too! I hope your mad-scrapping lands you another publication!

  5. I am with Mel on the mini albums, somehow a layout is to final for me. I look forward to seeing the new los in the mags.

  6. 2 pagers are totally my thing! and I love 12 x 12, just for the space, but then again, of late, mini albums have been big with me.
    LOVE the description of your dinner. Sounds pretty much like ours. LOVE how your oh-so-shy kid behaves... ADORABLE!

  7. I love 11x 8.5 and 12 x 12... and do occaisionally do the two pagers. just depends on the mood and number of pictures.

    maxi is loooking cuuuuute as ever!
    I may make something today and submit before tomorrow.

  8. I do double LO's 12 x 12 99% of the time, but also enjoy doing smaller ones as gifts. Your blog is always such fun to read as it takes me back to when my kids were small. We have 4 so we just did not eat out very often - too stressfull! Much better now as the 2 older ones normally choose to stay at home and the 2 younger ones enjoy eating out.

  9. Hello!! Max is such a cutie-pie!! You're one lucky mommy :)

    I hope you were able to finish your Becky Higgins sketch deadline today. I bet it turned out great, and I can't wait to see it in the pages of CK (wink, wink).

    To answer you question, I prefer doing one page 12x12 LOs. I really need to venture outside my comfort zone and do more mini books, though!!

    I hope you have a fabulous weekend :)

  10. Hellooo time for another post?? We missing you in action.
