I'm Back- well sort of-lol

AHHHH- I've missed my PC, my friends and designing! It's good to be back but sad in a way too- I LOVED this family holiday- I don't know what made this one so different to all the others as we did the same sort of things- played the same games and sports - but yet I think this year was my favourite at the Wild coast. We seemed to be closer and LOVED spending time doing things together which was just AWESOME FUN!

I'm still trying to get my head back from the beach- lol, and have an upside down house, but I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things. YAY. So what's been happening while I've been away?? HUH?- Any news?? LOL

I downloaded my photo's last night- and checked out some of the previous years photo's- OH BOY! lol, I can't BELIEVE just how much Nathan has changed in three years!! Just check these out- SCARY!


This was our first holiday at the Wild Coast in 2007 - he still looks like a little boy!


In 2008 you can see the man popping through here and WOW- what a change in ONE YEAR!


ARGGHG_ my boy is a MAN- lol, and the SAD part is I had to go and buy him his first razor yesterday! DANG IT ALL! I really didn't want to but he was asked to shave off all his long blonde *whiskers* on his chinny chin chin for school today!l I got him an electric one for a softer stubble so long and I must admit with the long tufts gone he does look neater- but makes my heart SAD that he went from that little boy to a man so quick!

It's his 18th Bday on Sunday too and he can't WAIT- lol. We've already been told that as from next week WE aren't allowed to go out on the town because NOW it's HIS turn- BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!, Yeah RIGHT! Told him the places we go to he can't afford anyway so we wouldn't meet up and embarrass him- but I would warn him where we were if he was out - lol. TOO FUNNY!

And then I found the photo's of Wayne and I too- Nathan takes one at this restaurant of the two of us every year ( it's about the only time we get decent family photos- HAHAHAHA)- I've put on weight ( about 8kg) since the first one- but after three elderly lady's asked if I had Nathan in my early teens over the holidays- ( HONESTLY- lol) I think I'm going to keep the fat! hahahaha


2007 (thinner face- more lines- BWAHAHAHAH)


2008 and a little more *face*- hee hee


AWWWW- my man looks soooo good in that shirt! lol. And I have a larger butt and tum and longer hair , but fewer lines- I think I can live with it- HAHAHAHAHA.

I'm happy that you enjoyed your holiday. Life is nothing without family.

My gosh, it's amazing how Nathan has changed in such a short time. I guess you don't realize until you compare photos like this. I think I'll do a page using that idea (My sweet little grandson is 6 now)....

Anyway thank you so much for the great frame - I hope it makes me look half as good as you do gurl!!! You and hubby always look so happy - it's great to see.

Whee, you're back. We got so bored we didn't even break anything while you were away. Thanks for the advertising.

Did you buy an AK47 to go with the razor??? Gosh that boy is getting incredibly handsome. Yeah Nathan the tannies are starting to check you out LOL.

OK I'm gone, I've got a whip cracking bunny on my azz LOL

Antoinette said...

Thanks Kim, a holiday can do wonders for the mind and soul. I'm having my cousin visiting us from the states next month and we'll be taking him to pilanesberg, sun city etc for our mini-break. Love the photo frame, will be using it soon. Have fun.

Melanie said...

Welcome home Kim! Love the photos, looks like you had a great time! Missed visiting your blog, glad to see you back. :) Thanks for sharing the fun frame.

Welcome back! Happy to hear that you enjoyed your holiday.
Thanks for the lovely frames!

Linda Walton aka bobbysgirlforever said...

ROFL!!! Bunny IS a slave driver, isn't she??? Ahhhh, but such a LOVELY one! *wink*

Girlfriend, HOW awesome to see your face on my blog alerting me to the return of the INFAMOUS Kim B!!! YUP, it has been VERY quiet about SCRAPLAND without you!

SO happy that you had such a MEMORABLE holiday with Nathan and Wayne and MY, MY, OOOOHHHHH MY, what a transformation in just three years! Isn't it AMAZING how quickly and before our VERY eyes, our children go from looking like children to FULL-GROWN adults!

You are BEAUTIFUL all the way around so NO worries about what happens from year-to-year! Interesting as I just heard a doctor's report about how women who carry a little extra weight, ACTUALLY look YOUNGER as it keeps the face from looking withdrawn and less wrinkled! Not that they are advocating that we put on weight purposefully! EEEEEEKS! Oh well ... he, he ...

This is a HIP-HOPPIN' month for here on the home front and I hope to get over to the forum soon! I've been missin' everyone!

WELCOME home darlin'!!! Thank you for the WONDERFUL eye candy and LOVELY frame!!! MWAH!

Love and hugs,
Linda :)

Welcome back Kim,
Good to hear you had a great time!
Loved seeing all the photo's.
I'm glad it'll take a while before I'll have to call my boy a man! ;)
No, I know, it'll be soon enough. He'll be three soon! LOL.

You look great girl! Don't know about the butt and tum, as you cleverly didn't show any photo's of those. ;) But your face glows, and yes, you do look younger!

Wow, isn't that a great excuse NOT to diet and just enjoy life! :)

Thank you so much for the great frame(s),I was hoping it would be the freebie while reading this post!

Bonnie said...

Hey Kim! Welcome back! You are looking good!! I think you look better now than you did in 2007! Nathan has grown into a man hey! It's so sad when they change and grow so quickly... nice to have you back!

o-girl said...

You're looking good! I haven't been by your blog in AGES. Thank you so much for the graph paper frame. I heart graph paper! :) I arrived at your blog via IkeaGoddess' blog. Have a wonderful day!

Evelyn/Ev/Evee said...

Welcome back, Kim. Sounds like you had fun!

Wow! Nathan is turning into a goodlooking young man! What's more, we share a birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY ON SUNDAY, NATHAN! Mine's a biggie, with a 6 in front! Where did the years go? I was Nathan's age last time I looked - and I still feel 18 inside!

Thanks for the freebie frames. I was admiring them as I read your blog so was delighted to see them as freebies. You are one awesome lady!

Judy said...

WELCOME BACK!!!! You were so missed.

Glad to hear you had a fabulous time away, recharged your batteries but now see Bunny has already got the whip cracking on ya LOL

The photos are awesome and yes I think you do look younger now than the 2007 photo. Don't take offense at what those old ladies said to you....when we are out with our granddaughter she gets...."give this to your mum" or "ask mum", my ego is soaring and thinking hmmmm if only they knew, then I hear...."that's my Nanna" Sheesh I come back to reality with a thud.

Thanks for the frame.
