This weekend is an extra long weekend for us. Except for John who has to work Monday. The kiddies have Monday off school as a Curriculum Day and then Tuesday for Melbourne Cup Day, so i am looking forward to a couple more stress free day of not worrying about getting the kids off to school.

We have had a lovely kick back weekend. Josh and Teagan had 'wear your pyjamas to school day' on Friday and Teagan hasn't gotten out of them all

My cousin, her hubby and their kids came over for a couple of drinks and pizza on Friday was nice to catch up with them all. Well we catch up every couple of months - but it was nice for Dad and John to see them all.

My cousin gave me my birthday present early as we probably won't see each other again until Christmas. A beautiful little girl charm - she actually got one for me, my sister and my mum - for all of our birthdays. So my little girl will go on my necklace next to my 'R'.

Saturday was a complete vegge out day - everyone stayed in their PJ's all day - ok not John, just me, Josh and Teagan. Mum and Dad went to a Wedding, my sister went to an engagement party and we had the house to Fish and Chips for dinner and some DVD's topped of our relaxing Saturday.

Josh has gone for a play at his friends house today and on Tuesday he is off to the Races with some other school friends so it has been a quiet Sunday. You can really tell who is the chatterbox inthis house - it is always so quiet when he is not

Here is what I did on Saturday - a hanging open album that I bought at Paperific after I saw Connie's - we went back in and bought am pleased with the way it turned out.

I agree with many points. But in some areas, I feel we need to be more aggressive. Just my opinion. Love ya. Wedding Dress Shops. Louboutin Shoes buy louboutin shoes.
