Alvin and the Chipmunks

Song Lyrics: "Witch Doctor"Recorded by: "David Seville"Written by: David Seville (Ross Bagdasarian)Single: Released in 1958

I told the witch doctor I was in love with youI told the witch doctor I was in love with youAnd then the witch doctor, he told me what to doHe said that ....(Chorus:)Ooo eee, ooo ah ah ting tang Walla walla, bing bangOoo eee, ooo ah ah ting tangWalla walla, bing bang...Ooo eee, ooo ah ah ting tang Walla walla, bing bangOoo eee, ooo ah ah ting tang Walla walla, bing bangI told the witch doctor you didn't love me trueI told the witch doctor you didn't love me niceAnd then the witch doctor, he gave me this adviceHe said to ...(Repeat Chorus)Now, you've been keeping love from meJust like you were a miserAnd I'll admit I wasn't very smartSo I went out and found myselfA guy that's so much wiserAnd he taught me the way to win your heartMy friend the witch doctor, he taught me what to sayMy friend the witch doctor, he taught me what to doI know that you'll be mine when I say this to youOh, Baby ....(Repeat Chorus)

We were just watching the movie 'Alvin and the chipmunks' and I burst into song.

Matt had never heard this song!!

So through the magic of the www I have added it to my playlist!

Enjoy, laugh, roll your eyes at me, I don't mind... It gave us a good laugh!! :)

All gone!

Well today we finished off the last of our Flintstones vitamins!
I can remember having these as a child in America. Now I always get a bottle when we go over for the kids. Well, they are all gone now. I stretched them out for as long as I could.
Tomorrow is CAMP DAY!!! I really need to pack..... It is not a big or a hard job.... It is just other things need to be done first.
If I don't make it back to the land of blog, have a great weekend everyone! :)

If your happy and you know it...

This is a pic of Liberty from a few nights ago.
Every night as we put her to bed, all 4 of us go into her room and put her music on. The first song is "If your happy and you know it". We clap and stomp, and YAY. I am sure the neighbours wonder what the racket is all about, but we get a giggle from it. :)
Today was a total waste for me. I went to Armidale to print photos... didn't have the CD in the case.... I went to do a home order and it doesn't give the size option I need.... Looks like I get to go to town again before camp.... It all just snowballed from there.
Matt is away with work tonight, so it was a nice lazy dinner. Kitchen is all cleared and the kids are keeping busy. Sweet!
I am hoping to get some kits made tonight ready for camp. If I can at least have the paper and photo together it saves me time. That is my biggest struggle matching the paper to the pic. 3 more sleeps until camp, I hope my mojo is already down there and waiting for me...

Super Sunny Sunday!

We had a wonderful day out!

It started with breakfast at McDonald's. Shawn used the coupon that he received with his soccer certificate yesterday!! Hotcakes and OJ.

At 10am we had to be at the soccer fields ready for the Kick a goal for cancer fundraiser day. Shawn had a coaching clinic straight up and then various other things he got to have fun doing!

The Uralla boys escorted the refs onto the field for their game... I didn't understand the purpose of this when I was first told... A common chant yelled at refs is ' Are you blind?' So that's why the kids escorted them... they couldn't see to walk...anyway.....

The kids also got to make a players tunnel for the big match featuring our MP, Richard Torbay.

I hope it was a successful day for the oncology unit. It was a great day out for us!

We arrived home about 3 and then delivered 528 cans of soft drink to the footy field ready for the P&C to run the canteen this weekend. 528 cans is about 200 Litres. If these all sell we should make $887 profit! Thanks Woolies for having a sale :)

Well this room is a bit chilly so I am going to leave for warmer spaces.... night x

I am sleepy...

I could just crawl into bed and sleep for a week. (Yes Moo, I don't think you realise just how tired I am lol)
I have had so much P&C stuff on, it just races around my head. I knocked a few things off my list today and it feels good!

This time next week is Scrap Camp!!!
I am not prepared at all!
I wanted to print my photos tomorrow at work, but I can hardly sit to type now, so I will make a trip next week.

We are getting some yummy rain here at the moment.

Hope everyone is well x

I owe I owe so off to work I go!

I had the call this morning to see if I could go into work today as someone was sick. Wow, were we busy! I only left the printer a few times to serve. It has been a looong time since I have printed so many films... It felt good :)

I am going in again tomorrow for a few hours. Liberty will get to spend time with her Nanna and Pop.

This is the LO I did for the 123 Challenge. The criteria was to do a self portrait.... yuck! So I drew me, or a version of me :) I took my inspiration for her from the Bella stamps. She is pretty cute!

Well I better go and get myself organised for tomorrow. It will be all hands on deck in the morning. Love it when the teachers have a 'stop work meeting' :)

123 done! (almost)

Well I have almost finished my page for this months 123 challenge. I feel bad that it wasn't done sooner... Between baby waiting and being sick I am behind in everything...

So I did manage to find the energy to start scrapping today... it felt gooood. It just needs a border and I think it is done. Unfortunately the border needs to be machine stitched and that involves me using the little energy I have let to get the machine out. So I am putting it off until I come up with another idea! :)

Tomorrow is haircut day for Shawn and I. This is a photo of him taken up in Grafton. He likes his hair a bit long, but I can tell it annoys him at times. Tomorrow night is also 123 Challenge Cyber Crop I loved the last one and will be there with bells on tomorrow night... health permitting :(

Drop back tomorrow and I will have a LO to share :)

Cheers x

Happy Birthday Madge!

Today Madonna is 50. I have never been a big Madonna fan... I am sure that I haven't hurt her feelings by saying that. lol

I don't own any of her music, vinyl, tape or CD. I don't dislike her. I just don't like her stuff enough to own it.

Also today is the anniversary of Elvis Presley's death back in 77. I always seem to remember that for some reason...

Well I am heading back to bed. These antibiotics are not working as quickly as I had hoped. Just to let you know how sick I actually am. I missed a scrap night with the girls!!!

night x

Lucas & Jessica

I was in the right place at the right time to capture a great series of images of these 2 new siblings. I am looking forward to scrapping them... at camp!!!
Today I went off to the doctor and I am now on antibiotics for the chest infection that I knew I had... So I am happy with that and hope I am doing better tomorrow, ready for work.
I was a very lucky girl and Carl (postie) delivered 2 pizza boxes to my front door at 9am this morning... I sat propped up in bed playing with my 20 new sets of Doodlebug alpha stickers....bliss! LOL
I am also waiting on another special delivery from Carl... I have been waiting for 15 days now!!!! I want to tell you... but I don't... I will keep this suprise all to me! :)
Tonight over at Charmanes blog she is having a blog party.... A what? Yes I had never heard of a blog party either! So go have a look see HERE.
Also mark in your diary that the 123 CC is on this Monday August 18th at 7.30pm... I am looking forward to it!
Night all x

My Soccer Superstar!

Well I am home from Grafton.... still no baby news to share!
This morning Shawn had soccer in Armidale. He has come a long way with his game since his first ever soccer game a few months ago. I am very proud of him!
We arrived home from Grafton yesterday after being delayed 45minutes on the mountain from a truck breakdown... I was in bed pretty early, I could feel myself going down, and today I have a fantastic head cold. Super!!!
Our plan at this stage is head back up to Grafton on Monday about lunch time. Amanda is set to be induced in the morning. If things move slowly at least I can be with Jess overnight while Roy & Amanda are at the hospital.
So there is a quick update!
Thanks for stopping by.

She's Late!

Amanda was 'due' to have her precious bub last Friday... As of 43 minutes ago Moo was eating her dinner at home...
After I finish this post i am going to go and get some clothes sorted and get ready to pack. First I need to attack Mount Laundry Pile...
That is Ok Criminal Minds is on so I will watch and iron, multi-tasking at it's trickiest! lol
This is a LO of Shawn's Soccer boots the day he wore them home from the store. I plan on taking another photo when the season is over in a few weeks. I have this weekend off so I can see another of his games, it will be the last chance I will have to see one this year.
Alright enough stalling... I am off to tackle Mt Laundry... night!

Wow, I haven't posted since Monday!! That has to be a record for me!
Things are just so crazy busy at our place. Nothing exciting happening just everyday stuff, more than normal :)
It has also been so cold and the computer room is at the far end of the house away from the fire!!!
Now for some Scrapbooking housekeeping.
The 123 Challenge for August has been set....
1. Lot of Bling
2. SELF PORTRAIT ....(yikes)
3. lots of colour... more than 5
This weekend over at Scrap Therapy (love that name!) is the monthly Cyber Crop. I am hoping it will help restore my mojo...
Today is the first of August and that means Amanda is due to have her baby arrive today... She has been unwell with all of the colds and coughs going around. A few more days would be great for her...
