Family Gathering

You don't choose your family.
They are God's gift to you, as you are to them.

 ~Desmond Tutu

And after today I cant think of a more perfect quote!!!

My dad's family & my aunts friends joined together today to wish this
GORGEOUS lady a Happy Birthday

My Aunty Patsy - dad's little sister... isnt she beautiful!!!

Dad & his sisters

and Nan... after having emergency hip replacement surgery only 3 weeks ago she was looking great and having fun watching all the people - especially the kids....

a family pic....

and some other shots of the kids mainly...

Meah & Ruby.... [2nd cousins]

Ruby, Meah & Jemima - posers!!!

Oliver, Archie & Zac had a great time playing soccer & footy.

This girl is sooooo cute - Mima turned 5 last week - and was very happy to pose for me in all her new clothes - swimmers, fairy outfits.... so funny!!!

Miss Jada - my cheeky neice is getting hard to capture her real smile
- but I got it - cupcake crumbs and all!!!

Sienna in her new outfit & butterfly clips!!!

Kylie & Wade [my sister & her hubby]
stunning as always!!!

and a few of the girl cousins....
unfortunately Ky had left by this stage
and we were missing Emily, Nat & Meaghan.

We dont get together often but you would never know it as we all chat away easily.
Lisa & I were saying how it is amazing how well the kids get on as they only see each other once or twice a year if they are lucky - but we were always the same as young cousins, so family ties are
stronger than you can see!!!

I had a great day out with the kids - we went shopping before hand - all over Newcastle
- spent heaps - shh dont tell Jason LOL!!!

Cant wait to print these pics now and scrap them - might have to get them done before the weekend.:)
