The last month....or so

I have a hopeless memory and should never leave blogging this long. I just can't remember what I've done.
We have done this a couple of times due to the cool weather and Ken enjoying his chainsaw. :-)

Some highlights, were a trip that was decided one afternoon and Jordan, Emy and I left next morning to go and visit my parents for a week and go to my little brothers 40th birthday party. It was really lovely to spend time with Mum and Dad and my brother also. He has four beautiful girls around my girls ages, and so my two spent time with their cousins.

My brother tandem jumped out of a plane, for his birthday present from a friend, and landed safely. I'm glad about that, as we were all watching.

I think the landing was painful!

I love being able to take a week off school when we want to, and just take up where we left off when we get back. I did take work away, but it wasn't a happening thing! We did listen to a book that Kaity downloaded off the net for me called "Our Island Story".
It was written in 1902 and is the story of England's History. It's written in such a lovely story format and was great listening whilst driving. Younger kids would enjoy it aswell!(probably more)
We got to spend time with my Mum and Dad......

We've had visitors stay last weekend for four days. These friends have lived in the last two towns we have lived in and after spending time out with family, have taken a job here in Dubbo. We are pretty happy about this as we enjoy spending time together and now that makes three towns!

I've been quilting a little. I started working on a baby quilt for my friend's baby she was fostering, but then the baby left and I stopped working on it. Will have to get back to that, for another baby. I moved onto a table runner that I've been working on for probably a year and have come near the end now. Quilting in winter happens easier for me. I'm sharing the read a loud time with the girls in the afternoons, so that I can sew, while they read books to me!

I know there's lots more that's happened but, it's gone for now.

On a very happy note, it's now two days till Kylie comes home. We are all pretty happy about this, and are looking forward to seeing her. Hurry up Kylie. In fact next week, when Tom is here for Tafe, all my chickens will be here. One. Happy. Mumma. I think Pappa too!
Cannot forget a family photo.

Emy-Lou turns 15!

Happy Birthday Emily!

Yes today , our beautiful Emily turns 15. She has been such a joy to our family.

Some brief thoughts about her last 15 years........

I used to find her in the bathroom,(when she was about 1) after she had pulled EVERYTHING out of the cupboard.

Biscuits cooling on the kitchen bench, when she was big enough to reach,disapeared!

Big, Noddy glasses. Tears welling up behing them, so we felt sorry for her.

Her "Thank you" after we disciplined her.

Her loving cuddles.

Spending time talking together.

Her beautiful smile :-)

I hope you have a great day Emy, we love you very much.
