It’s pouring down rain here in Sydney right now. My hands have been cold all day, and I can’t seem to warm them up. Rick’s picking up the two older boys from school and preschool, while the other two are tucked up all warm and cosy in their beds. My parents should be arriving any time now to spend Friday evenings with us. Rick and I are truly blessed to have parents who not only live in Sydney but who are also happy to visit us on a regular basis. I never had the chance to get to know my own grandparents since they lived in a different country, so I count it a blessing that my children have such a wonderful relationship with all four of their grandparents.
Anyway, I hope this week has been a lovely one for your all, and I look forward to sharing more stories with you next week. In the meantime, grab a hot cup of tea (as always) and I hope you enjoy these pages from our family album… (You can click on each image for a larger version.)
What happened in Weeks 11 and 12?
I de-cluttered my entire office in Week 11, and Jamie celebrated his third birthday in Week 12. (Why are all my children growing up at some crazy exponential rate that I can’t seem to keep up with?)
Favourite photos from Weeks 11 and 12?
For Week 11, I love the photo of the four boys on our stripy rug in the bottom left hand corner. It was one of those candid shots which speaks volumes about their personalities and what family life looks like in our household. I also adore the photo of Bear examining the baby monitor (top left of the right hand page) – the light is so beautiful in that shot. The capture of Pete helping Nan out with Sunday’s coffee (bottom right-hand corner) is also very sweet. For Week 12, the photo of the sunset on Jamie’s birthday (bottom right hand of the last page) is my favourite, along with the photo of Jamie with all four of his grandparents. Such precious times.
Number of extra pages and inserts?
I had a 6×12 insert for both weeks, with written details of each day’s events. I also had about half a dozen 8×10 inserts for Week 12, showcasing photos from Jamie’s birthday celebration.
The colours on each of the page flow well together, and I’m glad I managed to squeeze in so many shots of people across the four pages. I also really like my still life shots, which add just the right amount of variation and breathing room to the layouts.
