..................feeling a bit otherwise............................

Dearest Mom and Dad
While doing some embroidery.....................

Marie's garden is so lovely...................


....................full of interesting stuff................


the obligatory snake skin..................... boy, has she had a lot of snakes round her home over the last month and dangerous ones too................


.......................I want this...................cute tortoise - it reminded me of Carol for some reason!!


She gave me this beautiful trio............................


and an old singer.....................

........................the three weeks has come to and end.......................

Dearest Mom and Dad
The lovely three weeks we had together as a family has come to an end.............
We spent many hours going out for tea..............


.........................sharing meals........................


................................spending time together....................


...................... Under Water World.............


.........................posed for many a photo.......................


......................."learned a few things" - quote from Gareth............


Picnics - my favourite thing to do - our last supper.................


...................I continuously harassed them with my camera...............


...................caught them unaware.......................


.....................while, I mean, they refused to pose anymore......................


.........................walking to the car after the picnic....................Button wrapped in the quilt............



.....................we were not the only ones enjoying beautiful Mooloolaba...............


............................coffee......................


Button's red hair........................


Frankie came over for a "few" good bye drinks.................


Button decided that she too needed to knit. I taught Chloe to knit too this weekend. Gareth is going back to Canberra with a "snood" knitted by all three of us.

 
As, usual, I missed you too terribly.

Babies.....................

Dearest Mom and Dad
Here is Gareth with his "ginger bread friend"


I started back teaching - always good to see everybody!!!


Frankie bought his twins over - here is Flynn


And little Ivy


Every body got to cuddle them


Ray preferred to cuddle the platter of ribs I made...........


Gareth and Flynn

Button and Ivy


Precious little people.
It seems so odd to see Gareth and Button's friends with babies of their own.
