My 2

City to Bay 

Gemma and Lucas walked the City to Bay this morning. I dropped them into the city at 8:00am. Lucas got home at 5:00am so is not looking too bad for 2 hours sleep.
Gemma thought she had had a good week :
she has learnt to conjugate verbs in Spanish(she and Sean are learning Spanish), 
she has learnt how to decorate cup cups 
and has walked 12 Km.

City to Bay

I don't think my 2 look at all alike.

Gemma's cup cakes


Quite a while ago I bought Gemma a cupcake workshop with the The Cupcake Lady  yesterday she went and had a wonderful time this is what she came home with.


Gemma's cup cakes


This one was especially for me with pearls and pins and buttons.

I think Gemma looks like you and Lucas looks like Tony. My two girls look completely different too. Rachel is small and blonde, Sarah is tall and dark. Well done to them both for their endeavors. Fabulous cupcakes.

If you mean you have changed to the new interface for blogger, you can change back by clicking on Switch back to the old interface (on top of the screen when you are in dashboard) in the new interface.

Oh wow those cupcakes are works of art- looks like you are having great weather over there! I have switched back and forth a few times between the old and the new blogger

Shay said...

Oh my ...I may have to rush off and do a workshop with the cupcake lady too. They look gorgeous.

Gemma has certainly had a very exciting and full week.

For the record I think you have very good looking kids!

OMG those cupcakes are so beautiful, thought I liked the duck the best then the pearls and buttons but have now decided I like them all. Wouldn't they be nice made as pincushions!

Cute cakes, too nice to eat! Hmm it was hot on Saturday, so glad that it was better for the "run" Sunday .... especially when boys have been out all night! Ah those were the days, I must be getting old, because now I like to get up at daybreak instead of getting home at daybreak! Happy quilting, Sue.

Amanda said...

Great job on the cupcake. My kids look nothing alike either.

Sue-Anne said...

You're right, they don't look alike but you can tell how close they are. My two boys look EXACTLY the same.

Gemma's cupcakes are amazing! I would love to learn how to do that.

Lorraine said...

I think there were a few in the City/Bay who hadn't had much sleep! well done to your two.....what about you??? Wow...those cupcakes look amazing!! Love the pearls/buttons/pins!

Lynda said...

Your two lovely children don't look alike - just like my three don't look like they're related at all. Seems to be quite common. The cupcakes look wonderful - what a great present.

Lovely cup cakes, love the little pin cushion one. Me and my sisters don't look alike, but my kids look very similar - it's funny how things work out. They look like lovely kids.
