Heidi's Baking Fun Challenge - Lemon Cordial

Sorry I haven't posted sooner, but we have been very busy packing to move! Even though this week has been rather busy, I still had time to make something to enter into ‘Heidi’s Baking Fun Challenge’ which is ‘Smoothies and Cold Drinks’ this fortnight and I made Lemon Cordial!

It is very easy and quick to make.
All you need is:

1 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 cup of sugar

Put both ingredients into a small saucepan and stir over a medium heat on the stove until the sugar has dissolved.  Pour the syrup into a jug/bowl and leave to cool for about 5 minutes.  Then pour it into a glass bottle.  Cut a slice of lemon in half and pop it into the bottle of cordial.  Pour a little into a glass and top up with cold water and ice.

Happy Wedding Anniversary Mom and Dad!

On the 8th of January my mom and dad celebrated their 18th wedding anniversary! We all went to Jubilee Creek and had a picnic. The littles played in the creek and Kelly and I found a deeper spot to swim in! It was soooo much fun!!!

Mommy and Daddy!

Beth at Jubilee Creek!

Gabrielle swimming in the ‘deep part’

Rebekah just resting in the water!

Kelly and I were very busy before the day making presents for our mom and dad!
We both made them a card and I made a felt heart that said Mom and Dad 18 Years!

My card!

 I made a wire heart and threaded it with beads!

The felt heart

The mosaic wall-hanging!

The other day when my mom was trying to clear the kitchen table she accidently bumped my mug over and it broke, so Kelly and I decided to make a mosaic wall-hanging with the pieces of the mug for their anniversary. We used 3 different wooden heart sizes, organza ribbon, paper roses and beads. I hope you both had a lovely day mom and dad!
