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.......

Licking the beaters........

So do you remember your first time licking the beaters???? I wonder if Charlie will. Last Sunday I was making a tea cake and she woke up from her sleep just in time to lick the beaters (I only actually gave her one) She loved it :)

$4.20 well spent!

This morning we went to an indoor play centre about 20 minutes away. Charlie and Hunter had an absolute ball (Mel and I did too!) and I can't believe we haven't been to one before. Beats McDonalds playground thats for sure and best thing is they serve coffee too! We were there from 9.30 until 11.30 and Charlie has been in bed asleep since 12ish. 1 hour 30 minutes and counting :) I have cleaned the kitchen, folded washing and even done some paperwork. I just had to come up and print something so decided to download the pics I took this morning. Definately be going back!!!

Beauty Shop

I bought this for Charlie a few weeks ago as she just LOVES to look in the mirror.

Its really amusing to watch her with the bottles the way she pretends to put lotion on her face and hands and I even caught her rubbing one under her arm as if it was deoderant! She loves to use the hair brush and comb, mainly on me though.

She has recently discovered that the mirror piece is detachable so I find it in all kinds of places.

$20 well spent I think!

Just some pics I love from last week....

Farm pics

We went to Shayne's Dads for the long weekend and plenty of photos taken so here's some of them.....

Charlie had a lovely time and it was bitterly cold although the photos don't show the freezing wind. Her new favourite footwear are now her gumboots.
