Yep, it's true

I have to admit to it being my birthday today, at this stage of my life I should be keeping it a secret but I just had to show you my Grandson wishing me a Happy Birthday via webcam, a great end to a lovely day, especially as I got to spend it with family and best of all hubby cooked tea for me. Oh well back to normal tomorrow. lol.



Somethings just make you Laugh Out Loud and this pic of our Grandson does it for me.

Hang onto that smile baby boy, Nan and Pop are coming to visit for cuddles and giggles real soon.


Some days are just Special

Yep they sure are, and yesterday was one of those days for our family. First up it was exactly 12 mths since hubby had his last Op to help improve his hip after his motor bike accident in 2006 and it was good to look back and see how far he has come since then.

While hubby was in hospital in the south end of our state our daughter was in hospital in a remote QLD hospital giving birth to our second grandchild, while I was stuck at home unable to be with either of them.

So yesterday we were thrilled to be able to talk to number 2 granddaughter on the web cam ( well we talked - while she stared at these two loony faces on her Mum's computer) and after we sang Happy Birthday to her, we were rewarded with her blowing us a kiss, so that pretty much made our day.
And while we are celebrating birthdays we want to send a big Birthday Hug to our niece Dahna who is celebrating her special day today. We hope you had a great day Hon.


Christmas in July Swap

Oh this is so exciting, I have joined in a Christmas in July Swap, on my favourite yahoo group.
For ages now I have been searching for just the right thing to correspond with each letter of the word "Christmas" for my swap partner Marilyn we both chose not to swap actual Christmasy things so that left us open to a whole range of goodies, of course we didn't want to break the bank and we had to be careful of weight as we are posting overseas but it was still a challenge for me as Marilyn is a partner in a Quilting Business and I wanted to make sure she would like and be able to use the gifts I chose for her, so here is a pic of all the goodies wrapped up and ready to post.
PS... I think I am getting to like this blogger bit, lol.


First Post

Okay this is scary setting up a blog for a first timer, guess I'll just have to learn as I go along, first thing I need to learn is how to add pics to my posts, lets see if I can grab one from my files and add to this first post. Oh cool it worked, this is a pic of one of the beaches near us.

Now that I have tried my first post it doesnt seem so scary after all. I hope to be posting pics of my craftin as well as everyday occurances, especially new pics of our 3 darling grandchildren. We are blessed with 2 girls and one little baby boy who only arrived a few weeks ago.

Bye for now,
