Our Christmas 2010

This was our Christmas which we spent at Justin and Julia's with our family and of course the two gorgeous grandchildren. Caprice had a fun day and was such a good girl, understood a bit of the concept of Christmas but more the fact that if she was a good girl she got some presents.
Jett of course knew very little except there was a lot of people there and in true boy style was happy to eat and sleep.

This was taken from the other end of the table. It was a warm day outside but on the verandah it was ok.
Justin even put on the fans for those of us { me] that do not do well in the heat.
We had a lovely lunch with lots of yummy food.
My beautiful granddaughter in her "Christmas Angel" shirt.
What can i say, she is a sweet girl with an angels face.
Here is Jett wondering what on earth is going on.
Lots of people and lots of food.
Not sure about the frown.
We gave Caprice a new " Mammy Doll" and she loved it.
Now she has two who will get lots of cuddles and play time
This was the beginning of the day.
Shaun got a bean bag and of course it had to be filled with beans.
The question being how many men does it take to fill it??
Well it took the two of them and me to pick up all of the beans that they didn't get in.
I must say there were a few that missed and they manage to get everywhere.

Surprise Flowers

Last week i had to spend a day in hospital, nothing too bad just a minor operation and a bit inconvenient to say the least.
My very thoughtful son Shaun sent me some flowers which arrived just as i came home from hospital.
What beautiful tones of pink they are, i am so thankful to have such a lovely caring son.
Thank you Shaun.

Jett's Christening

Nana had to adjust the ribbons on the gown just so it looked perfect, not sure if Jett was too fussed or just wanted to have his photo taken.
Jett being given the sign of the cross by the priest and being well looked after by his doting Mother

The very proud parents and Jett sleeping through it all, far too much for a little baby.
After the ceremony and with the proud godfathers, not sure where the two godmothers were at this stage

Jett's Christening

 This is a Christening Gown that i crocheted over 38 years ago for my lovely nephew for his Christening. Over the years it has been passed down the line to all of the nieces and nephews to wear on their special day. At the time i had no idea that it would become such a relic in the family.
It has kept well over the years and i think at this stage Jett will be the last one to wear it unless there are any surprises in the family which of course would be welcomed with open arms
What a beautiful cake this was, very unique i would say and delicious. Unfortunately in true style Jett slept through the cutting of it but when he is old enough we will tell him all about it.

We recently took Caprice with us to visit her Uncle Shaun, whom she adores. After they had played hide and seek on his new bed Caprice decided it was time to do some reading, no ordinary reading for this two and a half year old but more a business book, look at the concentration on her face.Talk about a clever little girl. I do think i should have given her hair a bit of a brush though.

Cute Teddy Bear

This is a recent bear that i finished for a Christmas present for a lovely friend in the UK. He should almost be there if not already and i know he will love his new home with his other siblings. He has such a cute face and there is no one that wouldn't love him. The only thing he is missing is his clothes as from what i have heard there is a lot of snow in the UK at the present.

Birthday Fabric

 I belong to a great group of ladies over  here at
 C-R-A-F-T. Each month we donate money for the
   lucky birthday girl who is then allowed to spend it
on what ever she desires, this is what i bought and
even though it was last August i am ver happy with
my purchase and gifts

Surprise Quilt

  This was an amazing surprise quilt that was a great surprise. I belong to aC-R-A-F- T group who have kept this from khris .To be honest it was such a well kept secret and from what i have heard Khris was totally shocked.. It was made as a thank you for everything that Khris is always doing for everyone else.
The very lovely Sharon in NZ spent an enormous amount of time putting it together and quilting it... doesn't it just look great? So professional and don't you just  love the Diva?
To go with the quilt Pam made a lovely bag to carry the quilt in.
What an amazing gift for an amazing person.
