Winter Camping

Anyone that knows me well knows how much I HATE winter! I do love camping in winter though. This last long weekend saw us back at our favorite camping spot...Flanagans Reserve We have been camping here for the last three years and we love it! The kids love the rocky creek and the huge flat camping grounds are perfect for riding push bikes.

This weekend we went with long time friends of ours the N's. We spent most of the weekend doing this...And dressed like this first thing in the mornings....
But when you wake to mornings like this...At the foot of this...And knowing that later when the sun is all the way up and we can shed a few layers that we can come back to this...And that we will get to do this...Makes it all worthwhile. We don't even mind having to chase these out of our campsite every now and then...

He Said, She Said

These came to me in an email from a friend over the weekend...I got a real giggle out of them. For some reason Blogger isn't playing friendly and letting me post them a little bigger...just click on them if you are having trouble reading them.

Look Who Cooked Dinner Last Night....

She asked yesterday afternoon if she could cook I let her. She peeled and chopped the potatoes and put them and the veges on to steam. Placed the pies on a tray in the oven and set the timer for it all. She then served it all up for us all.

I'm telling you....pie and veges never tasted so good. LOL

I Scrap There For I Am

Just a few layouts that I have completed recently....and some that I have done for my DT commitments at Chookscraps.

These first three were done for the Celebrating You in 2007 challenges at Chookscraps.
