Wooops its been a while

Ive been slack, it must be the weather but im going to get organised now and blog more. I have a new laptop (working on the camera now HA HA )
Great day here in Auckland, sun was shining and my washing's all dry, naturally.

We spent the afternoon at a 5th Birthday party. It was Max's first party with games and he had a ball, the big thrill was the real policeman who came along and hung out with the boys.

Oh and were on the move again after 2 years in lovely Stillwater we heading closer to town as were spending too much time in the car.

Stay at Home Mondays

Monday is a stay at home day for us as were usally out and about in the weekend so its nice to just mooch around on the first day of the week and catch up on washing, baking and other bits and bobs.

The boys like to help me bake something to go in the weeks lunch boxes and I try to find a new reciepe to temp the taste buds. Each Moday im going to blog on our cruzy start to the week .
Today we had great fun making and playing with "Gloop" which is just a mixture of water, food colouring and cornflour. This is a sure fire was of keeping the littlies happy for ages and it washes away in water.

Then it was kitchen time and we made cheese twists and stewed fruit for pudding with the cheap $2 seconds fruit from the vegie shop YUMMY !

Crafty me !

Im always amazed by what other crafty people can create on there sewing machines and this year im going to try new things that I see and love for myself.

So today I tryed my hand at a crayon purse for the boys to hold their crayons and paper in while were out and about. I got this idea off  which is one of my favorite sites. There is far too many talented people on that site and im easily able to spend many moments browsing all the fab creations.

So here you go this is todays creation........

This button was all I hads so im going to get one  in a matching colour.

And I need to add the pad paper.

Ribbet !!

These are the newest member of the Strang Clan, two tadpoles.
Max is wanting to see then turn into frog and of course as every four year old does he expects it to happen in minutes.
So the waiting begins, lets hope they survive living in a four year olds' room.
