Merry Christmas To All

Well we are down to a family of three for the holidays, Spencer flew to New Zealand to be with his dad on Thursday evening. He was lucky the flight wasn't yesterday as we have had severe rain and storms and he would have been delayed for a few hours!! He loves planes and flying and loves flying by himself! We had a special dinner for him with Davids family on Wednesday night and he got to open Xmas pressies which he thought was great!! I miss him so much already!!! It will be a long 4 weeks without him!!!

Before he left he gave us gifts that he had made at school, first for David....

He made this tower out of Popsicle sticks that you can take the lid off and put things in it. Very colourful and a job well done.

Then there was mine....

It is a little box in the shape of a Xmas tree ( bad photo I know, sorry). I have it sitting in the Christmas tree but little miss Samantha keeps taking it out!!!

And he also made this....

He did such a great job of this weaving, I love it! I have hung it in the kitchen so that everyone can see it. Very proud of my little man! He did a great job of everything! I love you Spencer xxx

Well in case I don't get to do another blog before the big day I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas, be happy, share the love and don't eat to much!

Flowers In Bloom

Our garden is looking glorious at the moment. When we moved in this patch of garden was bare so over the last year and bit we have just added plants that we have moved from other gardens, or bought or that David's mum has given us....

No that isn't a garden gnome it is my darling David doing his best pose! Isn't he a spunk!!!!

This climbing rose was in the front garden when we moved in and not doing well at all, she didn't even flower our first year here so I decided to move her and give her something to climb up and just look at her know! She is gorgeous...

I am not sure what this plant is, Angela gave us a cutting from one of her plants and it has done so well and just keeps flowering!....

Samantha got to have a close up experience with Daddy's motorbike yesterday! She has been eyeing it up in the shed for months so Dad got it out and put her on it...

She wasn't to keen on it but was fascinated at the same time...

Then Daddy decided to start it up and have a spin around the back yard. I thought Samantha would scream the place down but she thought it was great!!!

I haven't really shown many pics of my darling David so this should make him feel good, that or he will want to kill me!!! The picture of him pulling a mono was a fluke! He rode past me and I just pushed the button and was just amazed that I got him in the shot and that he wasn't fuzzy!!!

Long Time No Blog!

Hi all, sorry it's been a while since I have blogged but I have been busy making Xmas gifts and wedding decorations, shopping for Xmas and wedding as well. Have been baking cakes every week to help us decide what cake to have foe wedding, so far a plain vanilla cake with butter icing is top of the list, with maybe a chocolate cake in a heart shape on the top so we have enough cake to feed every one.

I have found earrings and a necklace to wear, made a satin wrap in case it is a bit cool and made and beaded heart decorations to hang from garden arch as well. We found a dress for Samantha yesterday....

I saw it and knew it was the dress for her, it is simply stunning! She will out shine me that's for sure!

Oh I haven't mentioned we have changed the date for the wedding to 19 October 2008, a Sunday as we discovered that it is cheaper to stay in the cottage we are looking at on a Sunday night, you save about $100 if you don't stay on Saturday night!

Well I had better go, I have a list of things I need to get done while Samantha asleep.

Hope you are all well and I promise I will get back into the blogging properly soon.
