two children

Life with two children is quite different to life with three, everything takes a little less time and when we go out (like tonight - we saw Ice Age II) there's a child each for J & I to take care of! But we miss her - we miss Katya's crazy comments, bizzare body wiggles and her company. Worst thing is that she doesn't miss us & is having a fantastic time @ Granny & Pa's and at the farm with her cousin Isla. Hopefully Pa will bring her back sometime next week with some firewood too - it's starting to get chilly around here. The Autumn leaves are gorgeous - both on the trees and the ones that have fallen. We have the Arrowtown Autumn Festival happening soon which always involves lots of family fun.

On a scrappy note - my bits for this months DT project arrived yesterday - loving the new basic grey! Have my pics sitting with some appropriate pps on my bench while I finish some research and establish what I want to say with each of the LO's. I have a couple of project ideas in mind so keep an eye out on the Scrapbook Outlet gallery towards the end of the month or beginning of May to see what the design team are working on! Next month I'll be working on some Layouts with instructions &/or a sketch so keep watching that space. There are some way cool products coming in over the next couple of months so keep an eye on that 'what's new' part of the website too!

We have our scrap 'n' chat tomorrow night so looking forward to some catching up & as I've learned only a little scrapping. I checked out some blogs earlier & Mel had some cool cards and a challenge to do some so maybe I'll plan to do cards tomorrow night (might actually get some things completed). At school today when picking up Ali, another Ali gave me an ATC - so cool Ali - thank you - guess that means i should make some instead of just enjoying everyone elses! Posted by Picasa

We were down to one child this afternoon - very cruisy but it's funny how you miss them, isn't it!
AND they didn't even squabble when they got back together!
Very exciting starting on the DT work isn't it!!

Sounds like you are going to be a busy lady Lara, how exciting working on a Design Team, I love a challenge. I know what you mean about the kids, only one has to be missing here and the house seems so quiet, doesn't matter which one, just one! Good luck on your layout looking forward to seeing it :)

Must be exciting have that pack arrive waiting for your creative touch. Looking forward to what you come up with.
Hope your daughter has a lovely holiday with her grandparents its so important for them to spend time together.
BTW how did your youngest cope with the movie?

Isn't it a wonderful break when you 'lose' one of them for a bit? But don't we miss them, too!
