A Great Weekend.

We have just spent an amazing weekend with our family--finally we were able to get them all together -in the one room and it was fantastic.
Our eldest son and his wife and children live in Tasmania and they don't get to canberra very often.
David and his wife Tamara were unable to get here for our 50th wedding anniversary due to work problems but we are thankful that they made it this time.
We took advantage of this momentous occasion and had a friend come and take lots of happy snaps for us.
I thought that I would show you a photo of Stephen and myself with our 2 sons and our daughter.
Our daughter Susan is the oldest and David (on the right) is next and then Danny (who is Ebony's father) is on the left.
It was a great weekend but I must admit I am now exhausted.

Tomorrow is the Embroiderers Guild 50th Birthday and we are having a birthday dinner so I will be on the go again.
I'm too old for all this excitement.

Too old, you, never. Being all together is better than Christmas.

Well worth being exhausted for! That's a lovely family photo. I love it when all of us can get together.
Enjoy your Embroiderers Guild celebration and then put your feet up for a while.

Don't give me any of that "too old" stuff! You know you and I are just spring chickens!!

You have a lovely family. Your daughter is beautiful and your sons are handsome...just like their parents.

Getting old sucks, doesn't it!
Doreen can you please email me your address so I can send those threads to you. I've sorted them out, and want to get rid of them asap, to reduce the amount of stuff in my craft room!
