Funny Saoirse Loses Strawberry Shortcake

Keelan and I were enjoying a picnic in the sunshine yesterday when Saoirse arrived outside with her shopping trolley.
"I can't find Strawberry Mama"
"She's on your bed Saoirse" I replied, knowing full well a mini child tornado had already ripped through her room.
"I can't find her" she said.
I chuckled "Yeah you can't see the forest for the trees."
She looked at me intensely and then stared out over the garden and beyond with a puzzled yet searching gaze.
Keelan and I assumed our feast and soaking up some rays when after a while Saoirse chirped up from where she had become cemented "I can see the forest Mama."
We cracked up.
Priceless. Funny. Brilliant innocence

I have been inspired to start a blog by my friend Jenny Roper. Thanks Jenny :)
The adventures, experiences and precious moments in time that our family goes through shall be gathered and recorded here...I am so excited about doing this because I spent many years keeping a journal (age 8-30) and once I started having children I lost the urge/time to continue this savoured hobbie of mine.
As many of my family & friends know I was always writing events down and taking many a picture to mark an occasion, so it only seems apt that I continue to do so in a much more modern media.

Life is full of so many wonderful, funny and exciting things, the trials & tribulations of it all. I think it will be a great gift to our children to allow them to share in these for as long as I continue blog.

So a big thank you to Jenny, an inspiring fellow blogger.

Here goes...Welcome to the world of Celtic Kiwi....a journey into Ireland, and the Lavelle's Life...I hope you enjoy.....
