9 - overcame a lot of fear this week. The boys did did three mornings of ice skating lessons and day one was not good. With help from a lovely teacher after the second day he was loving it (phew!). By the last day he had amassed a mini fan club... they were so cute!
8 - wet skateboarding... still enjoying the strangely late summer weather

8 - being his charming self
9 - finishing his drink after seeing the Lego movie (they loved it)

I've been playing with a borrowed lens today which I now really want to own.   It's a Canon 50mm 1.4  for fellow photo geeks like me.

things I'm loving...

Finding a whole heap of unblogged photos from earlier this year (click on them to see bigger).

This set of cups I found at the Riccarton markets for $5!  
I've been searching for some of these for a long time.  

They're my favourite for picnicking and for the back yard.  I'd love a second set if anyone sees one.

 The cute cards that the boys made recently, their drawings are so cool.

 This gorgeous photo reminding me of how sweet our boys are.

Our snowflake decorations that were hanging above the dining table... and that they remind me to say "yes" more often.  One of the boys asked me how to make paper snowflakes. My natural inclination was to give him a quick demo and get back to my chores, but I sat down and we spent a lovely time together making these.  The other brother joined in too and then we had to hang them.  So pretty.

 This magnetix heart I discovered on the coffee table.  I do feel so loved and I'm so grateful.

goodbye summer

We farewelled summer in style recently with an end of summer bbq, bonfire, marshmallow night with good friends and neighbours.  Their massive water slide was a hit.  As the rain buckets down outside tonight, I thought that it might be a nice time to post these warm photos before we put our clocks back this weekend for the end of daylight saving.
