Chocolate Spiders

I almost forgot....
I wanted to share this cute little recipe I found the other day called Chocolate Spiders.
Dont they look yummy and they are so easy!
Get a 100g packet of fried rice noodles. Melt 200g of cooking chocolate with 2 tblsp crunchy peanut butter, once melted add the fried rice noodles and mix together. Place spoonfuls onto a tray and refrigerate until set.

So Much to Learn

Day 4 of having a blog and only the 2nd post.
I have had moments of fiddling with the blog and have spent a lot of time trying to work out how to put some badges up on the sides and change some things around and havent been able to work that out yet.
So if anyone out there can help, it would be appreciated.
My DS had a school assembly this morning and they did the Ant Rap, it was all very cute and they all dressed up in cool clothes so josh spent a lot of time this morning dressing himself to make sure he looked his best.
This is DS introducing the assembly, they did a fantastic job and I am a very proud Mum!

I made these cute little Xmas cards yesturday at Passion 4 Scrappin in the stamp/card club and it was nice to spend some time creating without being disturbed, life has been quite chaotic lately!

I also completed Lesson 2 of my online class at the Boxx on Monday night which was a lot of fun as well.

Blogging Birth Day

Have been wanting to start a blog for such a long time and at last I have done it!

Considering technology is by no means my strong point I am so very excited about this and cant wait to learn and play some more.

I have family (miss you all) in NZ so cant wait to email them and let them know about this, its been such a long time since we have all seen each other so this is a great way to share pics and stories, I will also even let my Dad know as he may be interested in keeping an update on us!

The weekend has past but I had a fantastic weekend and can't wait to share it with you.

I had a very special day on Saturday with my Mum at the Gardening Australia Expo.
Peter Cundall was a guest speaker at the Expo and was extremely motivating and inspiring. I got lots of special treats including organic vegie seeds, organic seedlings, books, magazines and so much information its mind boggling. Peter gave us his special mix for preparing the ground for planting vegies and so yesturday I spent most of the afternoon shoveling lots of lovely, smelly pooh!
Here are some before shots of the vegie patch. We have only just got back from holidays and just prior to going away to Exmouth I planted some vegies which the chickens then decided to devour so as you can see the vegie patch is looking quite sad.

I have shovelled all the pooh in but havent got any further so will post the after shots when the vegie patch is finished.
I have joined up to do a beginners class at The Boxx which started while we were away so caught up on my homework and managed to finish a scrapbooking LO of DS splashing around at Bundegi Beach, Exmouth.
As time permits I will try and get some holiday pics up but most go and pick my boys up from school now!
