Being who they are. they miss each other when they apart too long. I know how they feel. journaling: Like finding Cosmos in the fields and picking them. Like chatting up a storm. The constant chatter between you two is awesome. Its more often about the things you do. About what happened at school. And at home. And what my daddy can do. Cos of course my daddy is much stronger and cleverer than your daddy.

It is starting. Journaling : at almost 2 you have found your inner ballerina. Its a whole new world to this tomboy granny of all boys except you. But you will soon be joined by a girl cousin and i kinda see a lot of pink and fluff and beads and clippy cloppy shoes in my future. It is without doubt guarenteed to be a lot of fun. kenzie you remind me so much of me. You are confident, demanding determined and quite loud You have a lot of spunk and make it clear to everyone around you if you disapprove of something. You love to sing. Out Loud. You laugh out loud when you are teased. You even laugh if you fall over You generally get up after a fall check out if anyone noticed, you wipe yourself off and continue doing what you were doing. You definitely have a sense of humour. You are absolutely sure you know how to feed yourself. You are definitely sure when you have had enough food. Simply refusing even one more mouthful. You are a little unsure of new people. And in fact you even shy away from me at times. But thats ok. Cos u aren't 2 yet. When you are you will get to know that we share DNA. We share a love for your daddy. Nothug ever changesthat love. Even when they have cute little human beings like you. You get cuter by the day the month and the year. A bit like me, as I said! Ok so thats my sense of humour. You will get me one day. I just know you will. I secretly Think you get me already.Cos we are the same. I think so anyways. Except the bit where you draw on walls. Now that is an anomaly. But the real you will always come out. credits : [u][b][url=]Watchet Scrapbook Kit[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Striping Graphic Brushes and Stamps No. 03[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]ARTpack Bloom Brushes and Stamps No. 01[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Worth Repeating Brushes and Stamps No. 27[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Thicker Sentiment Spots Brushes and Stamps No. 01[/url][/b][/u]<br /><br />8 comments Wed, 16 Apr 2014 15:17:49 +0000 A boys ride <a href=";title=a-boys-ride&amp;cat=502"><img class="imgborder" title="a_boys_ride_.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="a_boys_ride_.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: sam ellis<br /><br />Description}: Oh How I wish that we lived at the beach and these guys could just play and play and play!!!

The excitement in the house is unreal. It has been such fun for the past 2 years gathering lights and a full size father Christmas and a whole load of other stuff. Very quickly we became the the house to go and see in Shelley Point at Christmas time. We see many cars stopping to take photos and we just wave and smile. Itís lovely to make people happy.

Are you gonna be like brother and sister? Are you gonna go out together and look after each other? Will you share interests? As 1 year olds you are sweet, kind and loving to each other. Kenzie squeals your name...BROADLES.... in a high pitched voice. You love to run after each other. You want to see what the other has or is doing all the time. Where one is the other is. Right now you adore one another. Itís an unspoken love affair. In my heart I simply know that in those 20 years that I stop to dream about, you guys will be a lot taller, and wiser, and you will have had many experiences. But please remain good buddies. Please know that you are family. Good family. Good, happy family. Cos that bond will always be there. You are making memories, now. credits: Mostly stuff from Layer Works No. 427 {COMING SOON} [u][b][url=]Worth Repeating Brushes and Stamps No. 22[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Chalkboard Alphabet No. 07[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Color Study Cards: Red[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Maybe Not Element Pack[/url][/b][/u]<br /><br />12 comments Tue, 18 Mar 2014 17:41:12 +0000 SWING <a href=";title=swing&amp;cat=502"><img class="imgborder" title="Swing6.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="Swing6.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: sam ellis<br /><br />Description}: Don't all kids love this activity.

Jamie and his grandpa have a special kind of love, I love watching them together. journaling: This an ever changing love story. A story about a man and a boy. A man called Pa. A boy called Jamie. Pa is a big, chunky man with a bald head. Quite bushy eyebrows frame is round face. His sense of dress isnít great. He says ďfirst out winsĒ. His spikey unshaven face is spattered with silver patches, a sure sign that age is catching up. Full of opinions and knowledge and fun and sense of adventure. He can be kind and gentle and caring. He loves to talk to Jamie all the time. Thatís a good thing. Jamie is a skinny little 3 year old with a definite sense of dress. He knows, without doubt, exactly what he wants to wear each morning. Even if you canít find it. He has to have the Peter Pan costume or the Ninja turtle T-shirt. No negotiation. He has a full head of blonde hair, with matching blonde eyebrows. Gorgeous blonde eyelashes make this face irresistable. He chatters non-stop. Claiming ď I only stop talking when I sleep NannieĒ. Questioning how, why and where in a barrage of inquisitiveness Jamie has a general knowledge and vocabulary way beyond his years. This is a good thing (apparently) So the 2 of them chitter chatter constantly. Whatís this Pa? How does this work? You said we could do this after my sleep Pa. (He never forgets) Their love for each other is visible. They laugh and chat and explore each time they are together. They share. They act silly. They trust each other and their love is easy. Just like it should be, A grandad and his grandson.

Describing our year in a nutshell. journaling : Dear Daniel, I have decided to write letters to each of my gorgeous grandchildren each Christmas and this is the first of these epic letters. You are 4. You are kind and gentle and considerate. You have learned so much this year at your first year of official school in grade 000 at Crawford and I smiled reading your report that your teachers always hear you laughing out loud in the playground. Also that you are happy every monring. I love that about you. You are always thrilled to see me. Your stories are always long and colourful. Its great that we can simply chat about stuff. You like to hear my stories about your daddy. You tell me in return the stories about your week. Who did what and when. I love to tease you and be silly with you. You lol when I am being silly. You love grandpa too and when he comes home the chitter chatter gets louder and faster. Your best is when he shows you how to do things . And you guys go off and fix stuff or build stuff and I must admit I am kind of excluded when he comes in the door. Thats ok and it makes my heart so warm that he loves you so very much. This year we had a trip with you &amp; Jamie to our Cape Town house and what an adventure that was. Yes it was REALLY hard work for Grandpa and I but man we did have an amazing time. Hope we can do it next year again! You really enjoyed Father Christmas this year. What a pleasure it was to take you to visit him. You sat on his lap for 5 minutes or so and chatted about what you hoped for. It was a mish mash of cars and bikes and scooters and DVDS. I am sure you will get lots of stuff you chatted about cos he said you had been a good little boy from January til now. Another feature of this Christmas was thatAlfredo arrived at our house for the first time and he sure has been a busy guy. The stories and photos have intrigued you. When I first explained it to you, you got so excited your veins stood out on your neck as you wanted to know ALL about him. You are amazed that he does so many different things and I send you pictures on daddys phone each day. Dan my man, we love you with all our hearts and we know that next year we will spend many hours of fun and laughter and adventure again. So to you our eldest grandson we are proud to call you our family.

Journaling: A Brother is a best friend for life. Nothing can beat having your best friend live with you everyday. Right now you share Lightning Macqueen and Buzz Lightyear. I guess that will move to tog bags and cricket bats. Later on beers and Guess jeans. And maybe a girlfriend or two. But no matter what you share, always know that you share the best bond of ever. The family tie. The inexplicable see-through link that gives you an amazing place to fall if ever you need it. A soft place. Well, mostly a soft place. Oh man I forgot you are brothers. I guess you will fight and tumble and tease each other over and over again. The Lamie punches and bruise games. I know this because I had brothers. And I was a girl. :) Be kind to each other. Always. credits : Katie Pertiet - StripSentiment Stacks No4 [u][b][url=]Stamped Sentiments No. 06 Brushes and Stamps[/u][/b][/url]<br /><br />7 comments Sat, 14 Dec 2013 19:22:39 +0000 Santa secrets <a href=";title=santa-secrets&amp;cat=502"><img class="imgborder" title="santa_secrets_.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="santa_secrets_.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: sam ellis<br /><br />Description}: Jamie keeps telling Brody about Father Christmas and it is all such fun. Journaling:Brody, so the story goes like this. A guy in a red suit and a beard and says words like HO-HO-HO comes on Christmas day. You have to pretend to be very good all month. Cos mommy keeps saying ď I am going to tell Father Christmas that you are being naughtyĒ. So all you have to do is say ok mommy. I get you. Itís worked for me for 3 years now so I just thought you better know.

It excites me to think that one day we will share so much! Makenzie at almost 18 months you are sweet. You are confident. You are loud and simple. When you cry it is almost without warning. And you are inconsolable. Its a sob from the bottom of your soul.You laugh from your belly and you have a great sense of humour. You like to be teased and you tease back easily. What a treat it is to have pink and fluff in the house. I love it that I have a grand daughter. A relationship I know that will grow from year to year. You can come to me to learn how to bake cakes. And how to scrapbook. And how to take photographs. And how to write stories. And we can sing together and even dance a bit. We could go to gym or ride a bike. We can even go and have a manicure. But please donít ask me to teach you how to knit. Get it ?

(earlofoxford) made me think of the symbolism of silhouttes. We should always simply be who we are. No frills. No stuff. I love the concept. Interesting really. Arenít we actually all the same? When we take away all the detail. You know, the detail of what we wear, the place we come from, the colour of our hair, eyes or skin. We are woman. Strong woman. With a common bond. The love of art. Sharing. Memories. Many are mothers &amp; grannies. Many are wives. Sisters. Daughters. But we canít see this in this silhoutte. When we take all of that away we are the same. We are a shape. We are still different but the same. What I see is a few ladies, sharing a sunset with no agenda. Just sharing a special moment in time cos we could. Knowing we share so much, but are all so very different. Itís what makes us who we are. People. People are people because of other people.
