Joel Crawling

Wednesday, March 19, 2008

Just a few things...

..... I wanted to share with you.

The post above is a little video of Joel crawling (love that you can hear his little hands slapping on the floorboards before you can see him). He is getting everywhere now, following us around all over the house. He crawls out to the front door when Andrew gets home. It's so cute.
He's started pulling himself up onto his feet now!! AHHHHHH!! It's all going a bit quick for me. Soon he'll be going to Uni!Joel and I went to Crop for Kids on Saturday. Big scrapbooking day to raise money for the Royal Childrens Hospital. Didn't get much scrapping done but I had a ball anyway. Joel was so good. Played happily on the floor for most of the day and hardly heard a peep out of him. Jane Fitchett from Crafty Matters snapped a couple of cute photos of him - Katie Toland was holding him. Is he not the cutest little boy ever!

School holidays start over the Easter weekend so I'm sure Joel will love having Andrew around a bit more (I will too!!)

That's all for now. Hope you all have a safe Easter break, and that sometime over the weekend you remember the sacrifice Jesus made for us.

Till next time.

Andrew swims too!!!

Just thought I would share some pics of Andrew and Joel at swimming together. I really am blessed to have an awesome hubby who is a wonderful Dad and who Joel just adores. The first two pics are of Joel going underwater for the first time. He did so well.
Also, we now have a full-blown crawler in our midst. Joel is on the move now. So scary that I can't just put him down and know he'll be in the same spot! DOH!! No it's good - he is so pleased with himself. He is constantly looking over at me and smiling as if to say "How good am I Mum." He's just so cute!

I'll have to capture some crawling on video and load on to here in the next couple of days. He has a great little style!

So that's the news from the Spinks' house! I'm hoping to get some scrapbooking done over the long weekend (gotta love a 3 day weekend although it doesn't really make much difference to me - but it's good for Andrew to have an extra day off)
And I am totally excited about Crop for Kids next weekend. Should be an awesome event to raise money for the Good Friday Appeal.

Anyway, that's all for now. Till next time

Scrapniques Guest Design Team Layouts

Wednesday, March 05, 2008

A couple of weeks back I was asked by the lovely Danni at Scrapniques if I would be a guest DT member and use their March Kit "Grandma's House". It is full of such gorgeous stuff and I was so excited to be able to use them for some LOs.
Here are the four I made with stuff from the kit (and I still have leftovers!! Gotta love a kit like that). The first two are using photos from our photoshoot with Katie Toland when Joel was only 1 month old.

Thanks for looking and go and check the kit out at Scrapniques and also their forum is so friendly as well.

Till next time
