New Blog...

I have just started another blog,
It does not replace this one but compliments it.
I decided instead of posting lots of family fun ideas and visiting teaching ideas here
I would start a blog purely for those posts and keep this one about photography and our family going's on.
If you would like to check it out you can find it here:

I hope you like the new blog and take some time to go and have a look.

Because You're Fabulous.....

With David having served his mission in America,
and Rebecca spending many of her early years on American army bases...
We like to celebrate some American holidays in our home.
Our favorite one has to be Thanksgiving.
It is a perfect opportunity to show how much we love each other,
and how grateful we are for all we have..
and for the wonderful people we have in our lives.

We are always looking for fantastic new traditions we can enjoy in our home.
I found a beautiful glass jar at Wilkinsons for just £5.00!!
It just jumped of the shelf into my arms...
saying "buy me, buy me!!"
To which I replyed "for what purpose do I need you?"
"I don't know yet but you will know soon, trust me, buy me!" said the jar.
So I lovingly agreed as it clearly did not want to stay at the shop anymore....
Maybe it was being bullied by the bigger jars...
I just don't know but I had a loving home and knew I could share it with this fabulous jar!

So it then occured to me,
I wanted a nice box to keep on the table so we could all leave nice notes
of why we love each other and things we are thankful for.
So that on Thanksgiving day we can sit and read them out
and everyone will know they are loved and worthwhile.

The jar said " I can do that, I would love to hold all that love and happiness inside me!"
What could I say but "yes!!".
So not only does the little jar get a new home
but gets to be filled with all the love our house holds too!!

Here is our little friend ready for compliments...

Isn't she lovely!

Oh and for those bargain hunters out there...
The twine is on sale at Wilkinsons, 
I bought a HUGE roll of twine must be about 300 metres for under £1!
The kind you use for craft project.

Daddy Love....

Boys are fabulous!
No matter how old they are they like a good tumble,
and to play!

While on holiday and visiting the Great British Seaside
I caught my wonderful husband indulging in a little...
well, rough play I guess would be the best way to describe it.

Poor Sammy....
Though I wonder if actually the smile on his face says he LOVED it too!!

Boys will play!

I Heart Faces - Landscapes

Which is perfect as I have just finished editing this picture of my son.

We were on holiday last week and had a fab day at the seaside.

Fabulous memories!
