Anyhoo, we all had a wonderful Mother's Day at my house. Unfortunately, my two eldest granddaughters couldn't come as they were both working at their part-time jobs. Alexandra, 17, is still in high school (her last year) & Rebecca (19) is at University studying Nursing. They are gorgeous, hard-working girls & I did miss them.
But, my lovely 15 yr old granddaughter Jessica (she prefers Jess) was with us & the twin terrors, Mr Sam & Miss Kaitlyn. My darling eldest daughter Tracey, Kaitlyn's Mum was here, my sweet SIL Todd was back from working in Darwin, and of course, Shannon & Shane.
We all had a great time, the weather was TERRIBLE, cold & wet, but who cares. Although, we were going to the lake to feed the ducks & the geese. Oh well, maybe sometime soon.
We ate a lot, drank some Champagne (just us Mums of course) & had a bit of a giggle. AND, I got some lovely pressies.
Shannon made me a gorgeous box for my bits-n-pieces, covered in beautiful papers, flowers, vintage buttons & the cutest lil birdie (can you see him). She also painted me a lovely sign to hang on my wall & I got CHOCOLATES TOO(yummm). Mr Sam made me a gorgeous tissue box cover (he knows Nanny can't ever be without tissues), with maybe a LITTLE help from Mum. Dont'cha love it?
Tracey & Todd & the girls gave me heaps of the MOST GORGEOUS teatowels for my new kitchen, all colour matched, pink-n-pretty, with cuppies & sodas & stripes & things. I don't think I want any of them to get dirty, they're just too pretty.
Not only that, they also gave me MICHAEL BUBLE'S latest CD. We are going to see him in exactly 10 days!! Am I excited? You betcha!!
12 rows from the front!! WOOHOO!! (oops, excuse me).
And, of course, Shannon & Tracey, when they get together, are just as bad as the littlies, always up to something.
Wonder what these two were up to while the grown ups weren't watching?
And, I know Shannon wants me to put this on my blog, even if she didn't say so (I hate all my photos). She looks gorgeous, anyway. (Do you think maybe the sepia hides my wrinkles?)
Hugs, Coll :-}
