A very SPECIAL Easter.

My special Easter began with a visit from a dear friend "Glenda" we have known each other for many years but we get a bit slack on the visiting side of things sometimes so it was just great to see her on Good Friday and I couldn't let her leave without a Faerie gift, one of the little doorstops I made a few weeks ago. It was terrific to spend the day with her.

Then things just got better after that day, my son "Rob" called with a lovely surprise, his son "Thomas" was coming for a visit from Sydney, we haven't seen Thomas since he was 18months old, reasons far too complicated to explain here. It was so good to see him with his Dad, he has only seen his Dad once in all that time so you can imagine it really was a great day for our family and of course they all came for Easter sunday, I was sooooo happy..... just fantastic. So now you have to see lots of piccies of my family..... sorry but I'm happy for us all, best Easter we have had for such a long time. Of course Thomas is a terrific little boy and seemed to be right at home with us all, we do hope that he will be able to visit his Dad more often in the future.

 Thomas, he's 9yrs old and he is on an easter egg hunt.

  Me ... Thomas, Dad and his partner Mel (she was trying very hard not to be in the photo)

 

 
Thomas with his cousins Clayton and June, they were all young when they saw him last but made friends as though it was yesterday.

                    Naturally all children have to have silly photos.

And of course you are never toooo old for easter egg hunting, Corinne is 19 now but she still loves to be a kid at Nan's. Corinee wasn't able to join us on Easter sunday so naturally the Easter bunny came on monday for her and she did get to visit Thomas at Rob's house which was great.

Thomas with his Auntie Heather and Auntie Liz.

As you can see my Rob doesn't like having his photo taken so this was a  " must I "  photo.
Do you like Liz's hair ?  You never know what to expect when you see Liz, its always different. hahaha


Another visit with Thomas before he goes home to Sydney.
Boys and their toys, never thought I would see these 3 together, its just great.
Pop, Dad and Thomas.

What a super weekend and I even managed to fit in a bit of stitching too but that can wait for another post.
