It's always nice to get some use out of the umbrellas...Piper has been BUSTING to use her Charlie & Lola one for ages...I used to have one of these little see-thru ones when I was little....quite cool really.
Our good friends Kam & Naimisha gave us this whopping block of Cadbury chocolate they picked up on a trip to the UK! Holy tooth decay my friends! Can you even believe the joy on the Snowflowers faces!!! This is a years supply...or if Piper had her way, perhaps a weeks worth. Yum.

I saw this photo on pixel fairy princess and I swooned. Isn't she a beautiful photographer, and wow, her LiLi is just stunning.
I want a pettiskirt...bad.

The experiences in her life that have shaped who she is so far are many. Her resiliance and ability to adapt are amazing but not perfect, never perfect. She reacts with passion in all aspects of her life. She is a storyteller, theatrical and insightful in her creations. She is dramatic...oh so dramatic. She is more than just a pretty face...so much more.

I don't have a 'specific' Paddy's Day photo, but this one just makes me happy! Lauri took it back in the Autumn, and I just love how it makes me feel about my two Snowflowers...blissful! Just seeing how much my two girls love each other is better than corned beef & cabbage (which btw I have never seen on a menu in Ireland!
..and then, because I felt guilty, I took an extremely overexposed shot of Piper in the shamrock glasses Nana & Papa sent her. Paisley wouldn't cooperate...she sees no purpose in being in a gimmicky photo....I'm pretty sure she thinks I need photographic help. Hello my name is Hayley, I am a terrible photographer.

The second party was the next morning at 'Chunkin' Cheese', well, that's what Piper called it! We'd NEVER been inside one, and if I were to hazard a guess we'll probably avoid them forever if possible. Piper was SO SCARED of Chuckie that she cowered in the corner when he came around
Mike snapped a grainy photo of our terrified little girl, this was actually after she emerged from under the table....I don't blame her....an 8 foot mouse is pretty scary!

I'm signing up for a photography course in June...it's with the talented Pixel Fairy Princess and I couldn't be more EXCITED! WOW...what a talent! If I can learn 1% of what she knows I will be happy! She has workshops all around the Nation, check her out...who knows she might have one near you!

When the winter blahs are getting you down, and your kids are sick of drawing, painting, stickering and all other traditional amusements...try a good old fashioned sheet of bubble wrap! It's 45 seconds of pure joy. Throw in a couple rolls of wrapping paper for balance, a giggly and somewhat sniffy Mummy (blame my cold medication) a silly big sister and a very hairy schnauzer... VOILA...pure magic!

sigh...I missed out...I didn't get tickets for my 'boyz', my 'hommies', my kiwi 'cuzzies'.
They are selling them on stubhub for $450 each!
I'm deflated, bummed, downcast.
Seeing Bret & Germaine last year was the highlight of our winter...and now...nothing...just snow and sadness.

Someone cannot get enough 'fairy juice'....looks lovely doesn't it! Paisley sure does enjoy her daily dose of 'green food' ....lots of good stuff in this, from kiwifruit to kale..wheatgrass to broccoli! I don't think I've ever seen a kid chug it with quite as much gusto!
lip smackin'ly scrump-diddley-umptious!
mmmmmm.....good! "more pleeeeze"
