Four whole years ago

If I was at a beach in Japan.. I would probably have been harpooned.. I was THAT big.
I have photographic evidence.

Looking forward to my new baby coming..
I was so excited.... I couldn't wait to smell that new born baby smell, to inspect him from his wrinkled toes to the wispy hair on his soft small head.. I felt so lucky.

It had been a long wait.

over a year before we had unexpectedly found out we were pregnant.. we were thrilled.. beyond.
it was not to be, God had other plans.
But after loosing our angel we were on a mission to bring a new person into our family.

When we found out that we were expecting again about 6 months later.. I knew that there was a special soul waiting for us.

sent to heal us.

Next week I will tell you all about him ...

He rocks my world.

I'm in full swing of prep for Archie's birthday party next weekend.

The other week I was talking to a friend about kids parties and we were saying how people make such a fuss, I think we blamed Martha... and how some folks go all 'mental' I'm pretty sure I used that word.. over things being 'styled' ...

now I know what your thinking ...
'pot calling the kettle black'

Im guilty as charged... but I tell you what, on the day its ALL about the birthday boy/girl/pet
As much as I have it in my head how its going to look, I don't agonises over any of it, its fun and I have loved watching all the crappy TV in the world the last week while making little things for this party.

The best thing about this party coming up is that with my two older boys if they were having a party they would tell me the theme/direction and not really input ideas, so I would be working away on details they loved on the day but really didn't give two hoots about.
Archie has been so different with this party, he has actually come up with some great ideas.. and has helped me with so much, its been the coolest.
next week we get to cook all week, because my mean husband told me he wouldn't cater for it... I swear Im not a diva, I like cooking and all, but heck, there ain't enough hours in the day really....

anyway - point of post -
Im a details person, I cant change that, its me.. but Im also aware its about fun..... I have been to parties where the sole purpose of the parents of the birthday child 'seemed' to be the details, you know where the kids cant actually even breath in case the bunting goes array..
its crazy.

I have told my husband if I ever get like that, to put me in a corner for serious time out.

full on week ahead.. love this stuff.....

Days filled

with preparing, school boys, friends, cleaning, working http://www.whiteroomevents.com.au/ more than I ever dared to dream.

Archie started Kindy.. oh my goodness.. how how how?

We had a small holiday to Victoria, so beautiful and enriching
so the days are filled, and they are happy happys days.. I so wish to post more...
I really do...

Something very exciting is happening in the Vawser household, of which I can not speak (my husband swore me to secrecy!) he is one of THOSE people who dont like to say or do things until they are set in concrete... *ywan* but Im a dreamer...but Im hoping to share soon..I know you would be thinking 'baby',  its not a baby of the human varity but a baby we have dreamed of on and off for over 10 years, in fact we put it away thinking it would never birth.. and I feel so blessed its going to happen.... okay - I have said to much... hush!
