This months FK is finally out and Im one of the 10 winners of their EDM album competition!!!! Ive know for quite a while now, and boy was that a hard secret to keep to myself. The entire album is above this post for those of you who are interested in seeing it.
I was so excited when I got the call all those months ago, and now cant wait to see the mag and the LOs that are showcased in there, and to find out who the other winners are - CONGRATS to you all. I was so happy with my finished album, and it was just the icing on the cake to recieve one of the prizes. Talk about happy mail - an awesome boxful of goodies. $1000 worth of product!

Check it all out. Thanks to FK & ASS and all the sponsors for their generosity.

Time for an update!

Well its been quite a while since I updated, but there are good reasons for that! I will just do point form or we will be here forever!!!!
The main reason is that I have been feeling pretty off for the last few weeks. Queezy and vomiting on and off most of the day - morning sickness!!!! Yes we are expecting baby #4 (our surprise package!) in late February 2008!

I found out just after Isaac turned 19 months, consequently I didnt quite get around to his 19 month letter. Since he went 20 months yesterday I will get to one in the next few days - hopefully.

My boy turns 10 today - HAPPY BIRTHDAY Caleb!!! I cant believe 10 years has gone by so quickly! Im starting to feel old!

Craig also celebrated a birthday last Friday - Happy Birthday sweetheart!

Its nearing the end of school holidays here, we spent the first week on a nice relaxing family holiday down at Normanville. Had good weather, spent a day at Greenhills adventure park, which was fantastic. Lots of walks on the beach, and family time. Nice and relaxing until the moring sickness started tightening its grip on me over the last couple of days! Ive got heaps of photos to share, but they can wait for another day.

Huge congratulations to Janine and her family, who welcomed their newest addition a couple of days ago - a beautiful little girl named Kaitlyn Maree. CONGRATULATIONS guys, and welcome to the world little Kaitlyn!

Whilst Im on congratulations - Congrats to Nat and her family on the speedy arrival of their precious little daughter Lani Faith. That was a few weeks ago now (actually the day I found out I was pregnant!!!) but as I said, its been a while since I blogged!

I got the latest SM yesterday to show my sister the LO of her little girl in it...this is what it should look like...

Next is what it looks like in the mag GGGRRRRRRRRRRRRR........not real happy that my 81/2 x 11 got turned into a 12x12 just to fit in their vacant spot!

I also owe quite a few people emails that are embarrasingly overdue (especially Shazz - sorry sweetie!) They are all sitting in my inbox, and I will get around to getting back to you all. Sorry.

Well think I need to go and veg on the lounge again. My tummy is getting queezy yet again - Im not to bad in the mornings, but the later it gets in the day, the worse I feel!

I will update again soon - hopefully with another bit of VERY exciting news to share - finally! and with some photos, and Isaacs letter etc etc etc!
