mi casa...

Huckle built me a house. He's a sweetheart.

"That's Mama's house when she was a boy." 
"Huckle* built Mama a big house, because she's very big!"
His way with blocks never ceases to amaze me. He builds the most incredible structures.
I love my house. Since I took this picture it's undergone an extension... another seven storeys!
You know, I just needed some more space... and a theatre or two.
And as Huckle said... I am very big.

* ever in the third person
** yes... the carpet does need a vaccuum... if only there were a moment in time when it wasn't littered with kidlet effects...

Oh Arlo man! You truly are just a delight.
You'll be eight months on monday, so I better post your seven month photo.
Look at this face. It melts me every day.

Much loved bear made by the sweet Jess.

2013... the year of adventure...

I'm not really one for resolutions. 
As the new year ticked over into 2013, I was itching for a goal. I desperately wanted to be challenged (not that life with a two year old and baby isn't challenging at all!). I felt a bit stale, like I haven't pushed myself out of my comfort zone in a while. 

So, we did what any wise *cough, hack, splutter* people would do... and bought ourselves a bus...
We are the proud new owners of a 1969 Comair bus. We're in a bit of a buzz. 

So here's the plan... 
We're selling most of our beloved vintage car collection and heaps more stuff that we just don't need.
Our little bus will be given a fresh coat of paint and a delightful fit out and then we'll be putting our belongings into storage and heading off around Australia.
We hope to be on the road by June... JUNE people!!! 
We have four months to do all of the above. That's not too crazy is it?

I can't wait to share our adventures along the way. From doing the old girl up to galavanting around the country side. 
If anyone has any pretty spots that you think we should visit, I'd love to get your tips.
I think I need to start a new pinterest board...

Do you have a goal or challenge for the year ahead?
Or do you prefer the take it as it comes approach?
Either way, I hope your year is ace. 

Toodle pips.

* this is my excuse for not posting so much lately... so much to do

*life is pretty chaotic at the moment. pardon me while I do a frantic catch up of blog posts.

"a portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013."

A new year, a fresh start.

Hopefully I will find time to blog regularly once more. 

I'm joining in with Jodi again in her "52" series. 
I love watching the little changes in my wee ones and capturing their personalities.

This weeks pics were taken at Flinders on new year's day. 

Huckle: a glimpse of a big boy... my little Huckle man is growing up
Arlo: experiencing his first taste of sand... stinky, black, Western Port sand... mmm. 

Happy New Year!
Here's to a rockin year full of love and laughter.
