snowy, wintery fun.

The wintery view from our front door.
Charlie and daddy's 'slinky' snowman.

A beautiful photo taken by warren on our walk today.

The long snowy road home.

My strong boy pulling his mama, actually he was a bit scared of riding on the sledge lol.

What a wonderful way to do the grocery shopping. We went to the local co-op via sledge today.....perfect for travelling in the lovely snow.

Healing and change.

In the infinity of life where I am, all is perfect, whole and complete. I see any resistance patterns within me only as something else to release. They have no power over me. I am the power in my own world. I flow with the changes taking place in my life as best I can. I aprove of myself and the way I am changing. I am doing the best I can. Each day gets easier. I rejoice that I am in the rhythm and flow of my ever changing life. Today is a wonderful day. I choose to make it so. All is well in my world. Louise L Hay.

A blogging break!

As you have probably already guessed I am in the process of taking a small blogging break. I don't think I have the strength to go into things right now but just to say we've been going through some very heartbreaking times within the family. Things are very slowly starting to turn in the right direction now. I have to say a very big and special thank you to the wonderful TM readers who sent their loving vibes, lit candles and held my family in their thoughts :)

Hope to be back with happy stories to tell soon but for now I'll post a few pics of our smiley boy :)

To be a mother...

I've been feeling a little exhausted and very emotionally drained just lately. There is so much going on in my life right now, that I just cant focus on the positive and I'm struggling to hear the healing words I'm trying to tell myself. But then I hold the thought of what it is to be a mama and hold my children close to my heart and slowly I realise that nothing else matters and I am smiling again.

Even Toby joined in the fun.
Our fab pumpkins, carved by the very artistic warren :)

enjoying our sahmain fire :)

We had a fire and lots of fun with sparklers.

Charlie loved his first sparkler!

Birthday pics....

The birthday boy opening his presents. He got books, a wooden castle, wooden pirate ship, dressing up clothes, cars, bulldozers and lots and lots of birthday hugs :)

Here is 'knight charlie', he loves his dressing up outfit and we enjoyed playing knights and dragons for hours. We put a big purple blanket over us and then knight charlie rides of through the forests on his dragon. I supose this could be seen as a 'war' toy but not in our house it isnt, because charlie uses so much wonderful imagination and the whole family plays together in charlies fantastic world.....

This was the highlight of charlies birthday....blowing out his candles, all he has talked excitedly for weeks was how he couldnt wait to blow his candles!

Book Sharing Monday.

This week Charlie and I have chosen ''The Trouble With Dragons'' by Debi Gliori. This is a fab book about dragons who dont have a care in the world and make a terrible mess of their environment (sound familiar lol).
The illustrations are just lovely and the story tells us an important message too.

The Trouble with Dragons, a funny story with lots of lovely illustrations and of course Dragons who learn a very important ''green'' message!

Eat food that is grown much closer to home.
And LEAVE the wild places and ice caps Alone.

Stop blowing all that hot air but instead choose to walk.
And put less of our world on the end of your fork.

So if you know a dragon (and most of us do) ask if it thinks this story is true.
For if we can't see that our stories are linked then sadly, like Dargons we'll soon be extinct.
