Family Time!!

Finally, after 6 long months of waiting my birthday present arrived - yes....in the form of my Mother (front right) and my younger sister (third from the left) at 11 :30 this morning. It has been 5 years since the kids saw their Nana and 9 years since they have seen their Auntie - so today is exciting on so many levels.

DD2 had made a sign welcoming them and we anxiously awaited their flights arrival - the minute the board flashed 'LANDED' I was nose to nose with the glass door they were going to be coming through....anxious to catch a glimpse of them amidst the other passengers. As they walked through the doors I could feel the emotion building up and promptly burst into tears...my sister Debbie, turned to me and said in her 'matter of fact' voice, 'What are you crying for!!' to which I answered...'cause you're so ugly!! What do you think - I'm so happy to see you!' We laughed and hugged and reunited and heard about their turbulent flight from Sydney to Canberra!!

They are here for 2 weeks and we are going to make the most of every minute...and yes, they are going to venture into the world of stamping...so you will still be seeing come posts here, but please know, if they are not so frequent and I don't get to make all of the comments I usually so - it is because I am being selfish and indulging in the sheer pleasure of having my family here - such a fabulous feeling!! We lost 4 family members in 6 months and value what we have together when we have it!

Thanks for stopping by, I just wanted to share this special moment with you!! Those of you who have family near by, please take the time to enjoy them and spend time with them - these moments for us are so few and far between...God bless you!
