I have been a tad busy.......................

Dear Mom and Dad
Firstly, "where the bloody hell are you" ? Since moving you never seem to be at home, which is a good thing for you, but not for me..............................

As you know Debs and I are walking 60km at the end of October to raise funds for women's cancer research etc. It has been tough raising the money......................... but Lee offered to host a garden party at her home........................so it happens TODAY!!!

Debs and I have been busy baking....................


wrapping raffle prizes - the most surprising people have been so generous..................


Vaughn made 5 flower hats...............


We ordered the champagne from the company Button works for - the price was great!!!!


Virtually packed up the house.......................


..................dipped strawberries in chocolate.................................


.....................recycled old patterns ...........................


we wrapped the prizes in them..............................

 
The weather is beautiful and I will be surrounded by friends who have been sooooooooooooooooo helpful and supportive. So all in all, I am one happy garden party host!!!

The weekend that was........................

Dearest Mom and Dad
We had such a lovely weekend in Canberra........................


Vaughn was the photographer on the day - so I feature in a few...................

 
We formed a tunnel for the players run on - normally a job for other team members - I thought, "Bugger this" and joined the tunnel!!! Chloe and Button followed soon after...............


When he saw us - he laughed out loud - I do think you are supposed to look mean and serious running onto the field!!!!


And so they won - hugs all round......................


Chloe...................


and Button..........................


Vaughn was the photographer - so no photo of his hug..................


Gareth claimed a little spectator for the team photo..................

 
Gareth's expression speaks volumes - "I am done with the photos now Dad"
 

He had this written on his wrist guard - sweet!


We then headed off to partake in a few celebratory drinks and to watch the Bokke play the Wallabies..............


All the WAGS and sisters......................


Button and Jimjam    


It made the paper........................


Such a good day with no injuries and no on field altercations!!!!
