Really can't believe where the time has gone. She is growing into such a fine young lady so quickly & of whom we could not be more proud. She's clever, funny, polite, very talented & above all has the sweetest, beautiful, kind heart.
Lily, wishing all the very best on your special day today & always.....hoping all your birthday dreams & wishes come true, now & forever. We love you so very, very much. Hope you enjoy your day. All our love & lots of hugs & kisses from Mummy, Daddy & Mackenzie xxxx
Here's a few photos from her party on Sunday & then one of her opening her presents from us which she did last night so Daddy wouldn't miss out, having to be at work all day, of course.

Hard to believe I have been a Mum for 7 years. Doesn't seem like a long time but when you compare it to the 10yrs service I had with State Rail before kids, almost 9yrs of marriage & the 18yrs I've been out of school, it's not hard to see where the time has gone & I've loved it all, the highs, the lows & wouldn't change a thing.
Who can believe there's only 7 weeks til Christmas.....51 days to be exact & only a few more after that til we hit 2009?
Lily will go on to Yr2 & Mackenzie is going to start preschool.......can't believe that I'll be having a child free day during the week, actually we've been putting off sending Mackenzie as we aren't sure whether she'll go to big school in 2010 or 2011 because of her age.
I don't think I've been ready to let go of my baby just yet, I'm going to miss her the days where she's not around but, yes of course, it's only for a few hours a day, and the time definitely is coming for her own development.
Here are a few recent snapshots from the life & times of the Perry household.
Lily & Mackenzie went to the school disco dressed as little witches the other night.
Mackenzie these days is pretty much into going full speed ahead wherever & whenever she can on her "special big bike" as she calls it.
At Terrigal in The Haven on the day of the Food & Wine Fair
Lily must pull faces whenever there is a camera in sight
Mackenzie & Craig making a slice........Mackie has developed a real love for baking & cooking recently
Lily & Cheetah sharing a cuddle in the shade
Nippers time again.....Lily picking up a flag at the end of a race
Meeting a crocodile at a local fair
Moving on to some scrapping, here are a few random challenges I've created for the Silent Auction & 12 Weeks of Christmas at 3AS
Here are my entries for the competition.
My Round 1 entry:
Round 3.....a deep & meaningful mini album:
& Round 4:
Thanks for stopping by & please leave me a comment if you've got the time!!!!
Good luck to anyone having a flutter on the Melbourne Cup today......I drew #14 "Gallopin" in the Secret Auction sweep, hoping he's good at exactly that & I may just earn myself a few bonus $$$ for the auction which has me more intrigued by the day!
Have a great day xx

Some invites for Lily's party next month
In other scrapping news, I've had another page accepted for publication in Scrapbook Creations, my 2nd acceptance with them, I think my first page should be out in either next month's or December's issue so looking forward to that as well
Anyway, Jayne is celebrating her birthday today, the 29th of October & Alana thought that it would be a lovely surprise to throw Jayne a virtual surprise party.
My contributions to the party are some melt in your mouth Chocolate Chip cookies
& some gorgeous little goody bags.........(non SU! but I think they are still pretty nice)
Happy Birthday Jayne, I hope you have a fantastic day!!!!!!!!

Had a fun time thanks Rachel!
Hope you all managed to get some time to make some cards.
There's some great challenges set for today over at 3AS which I'll get to tomorrow. Also while you're over there check out the special Cancer Council Pink Cybercrop they've got going next weekend. I've been asked to set one of the challenges (#10 actually) so if you're interested in some great challenges, they are $2 each & all monies are going to a fantastic cause!
Will add links later.
Now off to get ready for a BBQ, we have friends arriving here shortly.
Thanks for stopping by!

Buster.......what can I say there......he's a puppy, a digging destructo machine & growing up so fast! We had him desexed the other week, 6mths old now & 15.1kgs Here's a couple of photos of his handiwork yesterday!
I've taken these 2 photos recently from trips we've had down to the local beach. How cute is Mackenzie, she's definitely going to grow up to be a surfie chick.....check out her style!
Lily's big news is that she lost her 2nd tooth on Sunday.......another visit from the Tooth Fairy & a different smile.......so sweet!!
Life is pretty well smooth sailing around here at the moment & on the down hill slide to the school holidays.
This term has been quite full on with lots going on & Lily even did her first ever project on the Redback spider........(that brought lots of memories from my own days at school).
It's the last week of Term 3 & a pretty hectic one for all the kids. The school is performing their whole school musical this week. Lily' s in 2 performances on Thursday, a matinee & then a show at night. We are going to be in the audience for the matinee.....can't wait to see her on stage!
Round 3........there aren't many words short of SPECTACULAR & just down right AMAZING that you can use to describe the entries for this round. The love & sentiment within each one is just so beautiful & special. Well done to everyone & good luck too.
It's down to the final round & this next one is a doozy........you have to design your own kit to the value of $40 from stock which is for sale in the store, then create 2 L/Os plus an OTP or card & the instruction. Check it out here if you like. Will need my thinking cap screwed on nice & tight for this one.....lol!
Other than that I've made a few cards which I didn't photograph so can't share them and I've finished & sold a few more Kaiser Craft mini albums.
Don't forget to check out the links in the side bar for information about any of Stampin' Up!'s fabulous promotions or catalogues & feel free to contact me to place an order, to book your own party or for any further information.
Hope everyone is having a great week & thanks for stopping by.
Just a special note to my friend Nat, we're all thinking of you & your family xx.
