Happy Father's Day!!!

Not a whole lot to share this week, has been pretty quiet round here. Just the general house cleaning, kiddo watching and some scrapping going on.
Steven had a great Father's Day yesterday. He scored a sleep-in whilst the kiddo's and I cooked him up a huge hot breaky. Then they all went bounding in to wake him up, wish him happy Father's Day and give him his pressie plus some sloppy kisses and heaps of cuddles. He did score a few pressie's earlier on in the week as they each made him something at school/daycare. LOL - Ry made him some cute choccies, then proceeded to eat them himself once he gave them to him. After lunch we all headed up to the Botanical gardens for a wonder round the zoo and a run round in the park. Got some gorgeous pix of Steven and the kiddo's, and was just a fantastic afternoon. Didn't finish off Father's Day so brilliantly though. Put Ry down to bed at seven like always. Within the hour he was awake again and just full on screaming. Could do nothing to settle him down, went to give him a dose of Nurofen to help with the pain - he was tugging on his ears something cronic so figured that was where the pain was - but as usual, when you really need something it's not there .........had run out of Nurofen after the last two weeks of flu in the house. Tried putting him in bed with me to see if that would help settle him, but he'd dose off and then start screaming again, so at 9.30 Ry and I drove up to the hospital to get him checked out. They really are good up there with the little ones, they get them in as quick as they can. So they get him in to check all his stats and the poor kiddo starts screaming all over again - he just doesn't like other people to touch him I guess. They gave him a dose of Nurofen and a dose of Panadol together to help with pain and the temperature that came on whilst we waited for a doctor. Turns out he has ear infections in both ears the poor kiddo - probably due to some blockage from his flu a couple weeks back. Also got some antibiotics to help clear it up.
So have stocked up again on both Nurofen and Panadol so as not to be caught out again next time and Ry's doing a little better today. He did flake it on the couch this morning after dropping the other two kiddo's off at school and he's still asleep there at the moment - lol, I know better than to try and moving a sleeping child.
Thank goodness Spring is here, am totally over Winter and all the bugs it brings.
Not much other news I'm afraid, life's a little quiet at the moment - just the way I like it lol. It's my birthday Wednesday - actually I was reminded by Maddison about it yesterday, knew it was coming up but wasn't really paying attention to the dates to be honest. So her and her daddy must of been talking about it, wonder what they've got planned. What I'd love most is just a nice quiet family dinner at home, laidback and peaceful, prepared by someone else would be even better lol.
Onto some scrapping. Start of another month so that means new kit time at Embellished. This months kit is just gorgeous!!! Had a blast working with it. Here are some of the layouts I've made using it - have kept a couple aside for upcoming challenges and such.
This next layout was a sample for round 5 of Embellished Idol. Challenge was to create a layout using no traditional adhesives. Was such a fantastic challenge - really got the mind thinking. Used staples, brads, paperclips and masking tape to hold it all together.
This last layout is a just for me layout, using some of the new Basic Grey paper. Really happy with the way it turned out.

So that's all I've got to share this week. Might head into the lounge room and curl up beside chubb for a nap. Speaking of Chubb, he was weighed last night and he is 19kgs!!! So I feel justified in the nickname Chubb LOL.
Will chat again soon, till then,
take care

Julie love all your photos of Father's Day - looks like you guys had a ton of fun. Poor Ry - what a rough trot you guys have had lately. Hoping those antibiotics kick in real quick and he is feeling more like his old self real soon.
Layouts look terrific as always. The kit looks awesome.

Gorgeous father's day photos can't wait to see them scrapped.

Poor Ry it is always hard when they are in pain, I've got Anabel with an ear infection at the moment so I am pumping her up with Nurofen and Panadol too so she has (and me for that matter) a good night sleep.

Love your LOs too, can't wait to get this pack.

Chat soon.
