Photo Time

The kids had some professional photos taken of their little son.( by Jane Anne Photography)      This is my favourite.

Fun with Evelyn

Bath Spaghetti ... what fun soap. Picked it up at a pharmacy in Tamworth.

Funny story... Boo Poppy arrived after me to see Cotlon.  Ev and I  had earlier made some cup cakes together. When he arrived he asked her if she had something special to show him and the answer was ..
Yes! Cupcakes! 

       Evelyn with her memory quilt.  All the people at her baby shower gave a piece of fabric .  She loves it and uses it a lot . I have finally finished the naming and cataloguing of all the donations of fabric. I made it into a game for her. Each piece is laminated and named. She knows who gave it and can also play a matching game with them. Colton will have a set for his quilt as well.

Lots of Photos of our Family

It's one of those times where you can't take enough photos ....Sorry

Such a proud sister
                             Em looks so good after all that hard work... Love her to bits, best daughter in law ever. 
Evelyn loves a selfie
            Boo Poppy couldn't get enough cuddles
Our grandchildren..... nice sound to that  I think
Three generations of Morris boys- all with Raymond as a middle name. 
                      I wonder if there will be four one day?

Delicious Dinner

If you ever go to Bargara beach near Bundaberg Qld.  go to Kacy's  restaurant right on the beach. Its a lovely little restaurant and I had the nicest seafood I have had for a while. So fresh.  Yum

Finishing Touches

Spending today doing school work and between times finishing the stitching sand bind on Colton's quilt.

Today the weather has returned to winter.  A truly unusual winter with many hot days. The news said yesterday the last time we had this temperature in July was 1945.  No global warming then I suppose??
