It actually is sunny here sometimes.

  For the past two days the weather has been great. It's such a nice, refresher coming from a drab (though not particularly cold) winter. Of course that called for backyard impromptu picnicking. Who wouldn't like that?

  It's one of those things that every family has or should do especially when nice weather is hard to come by. I'd like to think it's moments like these that you reflect on and realise life isn't all that bad.



















  Also, on a different day, I took my wedding dress out of it's box to do stuff with it and this eventuated.



















  Yes, I know, he's wearing that top in both sets of photos - it's his favourite.

  Ah, sometimes having kidlets is a lot of fun.

Sunday on-time postness: I play games too much

  My husband and I enjoy playing a little Minecraft (if you have no idea what that is click here). Not too much, mind. Which reminds me, I have a game to get back to...at some point today. Anyway, perhaps it is a little too much because our lovely boy likes to play it on my phone. He's not particularly good and thinks I'm the god of Minecraft or something because I can get him out of the holes (literally, holes) he digs himself into. He used to play "Dragons Angry Birdies", or Angry Birds: Seasons for us lesser folk, but now he's well into Minecraft...or at least the idea of it.

  As he's playing Minecraft he looks up at the TV and says -

Him - I love parties
Me - That's nice
Him - I love KFC parties *points at TV with KFC ad on it*
Me - Oh, it does look yum.
Him - Yeah. All them eating, they are my friends.

My son thinks the people on TV are his friend... How sweet.

And now for some completely unrelated photos! Just because I do unrelated things so well.

  I must have left my phone in the lounge the other day and the boy (who seems to be the topic of most of my blog posts. My life would be so so boring without him) must have found it. He likes to take photos with it and when it's locked, if you don't know the code you can only take photos. Unwittingly, he documented the goings-on of a sneaky 3 year old. So the first two look like this.



Ah, that's not so bad.

But then we discover what he's really up to when we get this one...

     And 19 photos (no kidding, 19 of them) of this! 


  I guess he figured he hadn't quite captured the essence of the spoon or bowl in the first 5...or 10...



Lucky I love this kid so much.







Sunday photo-postness (a week late...)

  Yay, Sunday postness!

  The weather is absolutely terrible, well, not right this minute... It's overcast but not raining. Still, I like this weather when I don't have to go out. But before, it was like this...

  Except imagine more hail and some thunder. Not too much thunder though. Which is disappointing. Shame on you Zeus! Or Thor...or whoever is messing up there. More thunder next time!  Hmm...hopefully that doesn't give my location away. Ah, by the time I'm famous enough to get haters I'll probably have moved...and be 40...at least.

  Anyway, this means we're all cooped up inside and I have no excuses to be super late in releasing my limited edition blog posts (except here I am, releasing it a week late. Irony!).

  My son was playing with an elephant the other day and we were talking about eating stuff. Needless to say, he pipes up:

Him - You can't eat elephants

Me - Why not?

Him - Because elephants throw sand over their backs.

Me - So, you can't eat elephants because they throw sand over their backs?

Him - Yeah.

  I'm not really sure where the logic for this came from, but as soon as he said this he presented me with this.



  A perfect off-the-bat duck face. Logic explained.

  May I reiterate that I don't pull that face. Well, not seriously, anyway. And certainly not in front of my impressionable children.

  Honest.

Sunday vanity...and a baby

  On Friday it was Daffodil Day. For those who don't know essentially it's a fundraiser and awareness day for The Cancer Society and cancer. A friend of mine (who's young) has been diagnosed with cancer so it seemed like a good time to get behind it. She's a strong, beautiful person and I have no doubt she'll pull through.

  Anywho, in recognition of the day I decided to wear some daffodil inspired makeup. Unfortunately, I decided to take pictures at night. Nevertheless, you get the gist of it.

  For those who haven't, donate to The Cancer Society to help find a cure and help those with cancer here.




Daffodilly...kinda.
Also, for spring (and my brother in law's birthday), I did a peacock type thing... You'll see and understand.



Fun stuff... Okay, so I suppose it's quite hard to see...but it's purple, blue and green extravagance.

  Well, that wasn't a very upbeat post, so I'll make it better with a nice picture of a cheesy baby.

  All better.


Filler-inner post again. Real photos coming soon =)

  Phew, just been lazy lately, sorry. I do have a few stories and stuff to make up for it.

  So whenever I ask the boy what he wants for dinner he always says KFC. And if I don't feel like that he'll suggest pizza. This happened a week or so ago, we get pizza; I always get a hawaiian for me, an italiano for the husband and a meatlovers for everyone. The boy declares he doesn't like pineapple on his pizza. That's okay, more hawaiian for me, he can have a slice of meatlovers. So, off he goes with his garlic bread and pizza and he doesn't even eat the pizza!






Me- Why didn't you eat your pizza?








Him- I don't want pizza.











Me- *sigh*






  I'd like to say he has a good reason he asks for pizza but I suspect it's just for the garlic bread. Typical!

  Also last week, I found out that big boxes of raisins are the new fortune cookies. I don't know how long large raisin boxes have provided inspirational phrases - the type you find as horoscopes, but it's hilarious. Maybe it's to make you feel better about the sugar you're about to consume, I don't know. I must say, though, I feel much better about life and raisins when this is staring me in the face.


A guarantee indeed.
  Maybe raisins were a leading cause of depression, or people who were depressed ate a lot of raisins. Very strange.
