Mothers Day

I hope you all had a wonderful Mothers Day! Mine was pretty good. The kids showered me with sweet gifts and cards -some homemade, some from the Mothers Day stall at school, as well as a photo frame with my favourite pictures of the boys atm (OK I had to organise this for myself!!!) and some pansy seedlings they are going to plant out into some hanging pots for me. We had lunch with Craigs family, checked out the local market and then came back here for coffee and desert.

Since it was mothers day, I took the opportunity before we went for lunch to get some pics with each of the boys. Caleb took some with Nath in them, and Nath took some with Caleb & Isaac...unfortunatley the 'little' camera is a bit sensitive and they often move it to much, so the pics are not as sharp as I would like (even with some extensive computer tweeking LOL) but I love 'em anyway!!! Nath was the only cooperative one. Isaac looked everywhere but the camera, and Caleb pulled every face he could think of, as well as shut his eyes intentionally (ggrrr what is it with boys and cameras!!! and they both thought it was hillarious) The only one I really like of him is when I thought I would join in and pull a face too - of course he decided to smile nicely at that moment! It was fun though, and Nathan was laughing so much some of those photos are SO blurry !
In the afternoon I got SIL to take a few shots of the boys and I as well ;) throw all three into the mix at once and what a joke...this is about the best of them. I also got a shot of the boys and their cousins - it was fun (well I had fun!!!), but J & Caleb were on the bottom and kept whining the others were heavy, or rolling them off, or burying their faces in the grass...did manage to get this one though!Tea was supposed to be here with my family but Mum and my littlest sister both came down with gastro over night so we canned that idea. Poor Vick, last mothers day she was hanging around waiting for Georgia to arrive (she went in to be induced the next day...only two more sleeps till little miss G turns 1!!!!!!!!!!)) and then she spends her first real mothers day in bed sick...hope your both feeling better!

Oh, and just to top it all off, our dishwasher decided to pack it in. Craig is picking up a new one tomorrow thank goodness.

lovely photos Nic, I tried to do the family photo shoot for mothers day, although I did find it hard with a toddler and a baby!
homemade presents are the best I think, glad you had a great day!
