Day One

Okay so day one is here and the above is a photo of Charlie and I taken when she was 6 months old (so its 31/2 years old!!!) There arent many pictures of me as I am usually the one taking the photos so this will have to do. Too weather beaten to take a pic today!!! Where on earth is this winter weather coming from :(

So my day so far....
Meet Charlie and Nanna Carol at the coffee shop near ballet as Charlie stayed down at Rosebud with Nanna and Grandpa last night as we had to go to a funeral. Got a lovely cup of coffee and headed to ballet where the parents had a lesson on hair and makeup for this weeks dress rehearsal. Yikes I have to put make up on my child and her hair has to be a "Pollyanna"!!! Had no clue what that was until this morning but it sounds easy enough, will just require a ton of spray as the poor child has my curly unruly hair :( Also got her crocodile costume which is very cute. She is in two dances, first as a crocodile then as a beautiful pixie in a hot pink tutu :)
Came home from there made someone a vegemite sandwich for lunch and dont plan to do to much today except try and stay warm, fire is lit and pjs are on already LOL.

Actually at the moment we are in the middle of a pretend game, Charlie is Daphne and I am Velma, two of the Tomliboo's are Shaggy and Freddy and Scooby is Scooby. Apparently there are creatures at the door so guess I better help fend them off !!!

Yesterday we went to the snow.....

First time for Charlie and yep she loved it. Gonna be a snow bunny just like her Daddy me thinks! We went to Baw Baw which is about a 3 hour drive so much nicer to go for the day that Mt Buller. We left home around 8ish and got back about 6.30. Nanna (Shayne's Mum) came with us and we all had a lovely day. People kept looking at Charlie in her matching outfit and saying Oh how cute and some asian boys took a photo with her. She was tuckered out by the time we got home so was in bed fast asleep by 7pm and awoke this morning just before 7pm. Some pics (naturally) will follow and I cant wait to scrap some of these on Thursday :)

Sorry they arent in the right order, the one of her sleeping in the car seat was from on the way home.

Friday favourite 5's

Seeing as I enjoy my friend Kirsty's friday 5's (her lovely blog) I thought it was about time I did my own. I have refrained from doing them for this long as I thought each week they would just be Charlie Charlie Charlie Charlie and Charlie. Of course she will feature in them but will try not to use her in each one.

Favourite #1

Of course is my angel girl.

Favourite #2

How much of a monkey my child is. Who has recently discovered that if she climbs up on her desk can reach not only the light switch but the fan as well!

Favourite #3

My friends new baby girl (just a week old today) Kate Annabelle.....awww just awww :)

Favourite #4

Seeing a rainbow, I just love them. This one was out my back door at 7am one morning earlier this week. A rainbow always makes me smile and this one was quite strange as it wasnt even quite daylight yet.

Favourite #5

Scrapbooking. I now go and scrap here every thursday. Charlie goes to Nanna and Grandpa's and we both have a great day. This is a page I did last week that I absolutely love. I love the lovely ladies I have met through scrapbooking and all the delicious papers etc.

So thats it for my 5 this week. Hopefully will try and make this a weekly thing as I havent been too good at keeping my blog up to date. (see date of last post!)

Daddy took her shopping......

And look what she came home with!!!!

Actually I dont mind it as Hawthorn are my second favourite team. (Actually its because of Shane Crawford I am seriously in love with him) Anyway it was Saturday afternoon and I was feeling like crap (HRT drugs....How could I have forgotten what they feel like?) Shayne came home and wanted to go to Rebel to get some new shoes so off he went with Charlie and back they came 2.5 hours later (I had a lovely sleep!) with her proudly sporting her new jumper. I have to go and get the numbers this week as Rebel was out of 2's. We need a 23 for Buddy Franklin apparently. He got her a size 2 so it would fit her next season as well...what a sensible man :)

Scribble scribble scribble.....

Recently I got in the mail this Crayola desk, it was a Huggies barcode offer. It came with this piece of paper and a box of crayons. I let Charlie have them and here is the result.....

I think she was quite proud of her picture :)

See she can stack blocks!!!!!!!!

Just had to take these pics when I came out and saw what she was doing.......
