As we didn't know if it was going to be a boy or girl, I chose fun neutral type colours. Here are a few pics of it.

I was quite happy with how it turned out. Here is the link to the instructions.
Owen has just turned 4 weeks old and he is doing really well. He's a very contented baby and we are just loving and appreciating being close by to have cuddles and to be a part of his life.
A couple of weeks after he was born, I went down to Adelaide with Daniel, Telesha and Owen so Owen could meet his great grand parents. It was a lovely day and he travelled well.

My youngest sister came up the other weekend, and we visited some open gardens and ended up at a local gift shop / cafe for iced coffees...they were delicious!
Friday week ago I attended the MainstreetSA Awards dinner in Adelaide, representing the Loxton Chamber of Commerce and we were delighted to win our category for 'Outstanding Partnerships' with the Loxton Council. It was a great night.
Last night I did a roast for tea as all the kids were coming around and instead of garlic or herb bread, I made some Yorkshire Puddings to go with it. I'd never made them before and was pretty stoked with how they turned out....they were a hit! I used Jamie Oliver's recipe, which can be found here.
My camera is full of, yes you guessed it 'baby pictures'!!! I won't bombard you with them, but here is one of Owen with Paul, it was amazing they had identical coloured shirts on....Ford colours of course!!
I haven't been very good lately at remembering to take other 'non baby' photos, so must get my act into gear!
