Beautiful Friends...

I am blessed to have such wonderful friends, including all my online friends, most of whom I've never met.. something I hope to change one day! There is one friend who I miss terribly... Rachael, and even though we don't live too far away from each other, it's been awhile since we've been able to get together! Rachael is one of the most beautiful people I know, always there for you no matter what, she listens to you, really listens, never judges & has the most heart warming smile, she has a wonderful husband, two gorgeous girls & a beautiful baby boy! When we do manage to catch up, it's as if we were never apart! I love her girls, Maddison with her shy sweet smile & Miss Ainsleigh who ALWAYS makes me laugh, I miss them dearly & they are all in my thoughts & prayers everyday. The quote “Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts. And we are never, ever the same.” is so true, Rachael has definitely left footprints on my heart & I know I'll never be the same! So Rach, if you get to read this, I know how busy life can be with a little one, but know I miss you & your gorgeous family, I thank you with all my heart for knowing me & still wanting to be my friend... much love to you all.... xxxx

I miss her, more than I ever thought possible!

So happy I have these photos!

Such sweet, beautiful girls.. both inside & out!

It's in his blood...

Samuel LOVES soccer, that could very well be an understatement! The first time he watched a soccer match at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, he turned to my hubby & said "that will be me one day daddy, I'm going to play on that field"!! Sam really enjoys watching the matches at the stadiums, he gets right into it, sitting in the dusty air on Saturday night at Skilled Park didn't bother him in the slightest! This year he played soccer for an under 10's team... with each game, his skill, his confidence & his hunger for the game grew. Sometimes his desire to be the best worries me, but his daddy says it will be what gives him the edge to be the very best he can be! He wants to be like Ronaldinho or Ronaldo! So his sights are set very high, but with his passion & determination I believe he will achieve his goals in life both on & off the field, simply because... it's in his blood...

In his blood..

In his blood..

Just like his Daddy...
In his blood..

Ava's Tea Party.

On August 22nd we had our own little 'Tea Party' to honor Ava "Super Princess" and all that she represents! We celebrated with pink cupcakes, pink milkshakes, pink tea (strawberry!) & lots of other pink goodies!! It is a tradition that her Mum, Sheye Rosemeyer has started with her own family. to remember & to celebrate sweet Ava! I decided that it would be a tradition for my family too! to remember & celebrate Ava & to also take time to just be with my family, to cherish every moment I have with them! Sheye is an inspiration in so many ways, so giving of her time, so willing to help, she has incredible strength she is a remarkable woman.. I truly admire her! Sheye & Ava... I hold them in my heart, for they have given me so much & for that I am forever grateful..... xxx

Happy Birthday Sweet Angel....

HE'S HERE.....

Well hello everyone it's been such a long time, but I'm back with wonderful news & how appropriate for my 200th post!! Our grandson Lachlan arrived safely on Sunday 5th April (his due date!) weighing 6lbs 60zs & 52cm long! Amanda had a good labour but it wasn't all smooth sailing! Having a c-section was mentioned but thankfully she avoided one. I will say that seeing Lachlan being born was absolutely amazing... it has moved me in a way I never thought possible... to feel so much love for this little man was overwhelming to say the least.. it's wow amazing!! He's just the sweetest little boy, very alert & he just looks at you forever when you talk to him... he's beautiful! I'm so very proud of Amanda she did so well.. love you sweetheart! I will be back with some more photos later & I will be stopping by to say hi... sorry it's been so long! xxxxx

Remembering Ava.. "Super Princess" Always in my heart & always remembered! We released balloons for Ava yesterday.. I watched with tears as they floated away until I could no longer see them... Tayla & Samuel collected shells and laid them out to spell Ava's name.. I love my children so much it hurts.. yes even when they are driving me crazy.. it's times like this.. that make me so very grateful that I'm able to do all the things with my children.. hug them, read to them, kiss them goodnight, explore new places with them, tell them I love them & hear "I love you too"... all the things we so often take for granted! I treasure every moment I have with my family even more than ever... Thank you Ava... xxxxx

Seeing in 2009..

We had a great night New Year's Eve.. we arrived in Surfers Paradise around 8pm & it was packed.. roads were closed off, something they do every year.. we found somewhere to park & then started our walk into the madness! People were everywhere in the streets, on the beach, grass areas along the sidewalk.. you name it they were there!! We ate gourmet pizzas for dinner ( they were divine!) walked around the shops & along the beach, we found some glowsticks for Sam & Tayla, Missy Mu had to have a crown :D of course, then we found somewhere to sit & wait for the big countdown. Sam had fun playing in the sand & chasing seagulls (one of his favourite things to do at the beach!!) & trying to jump over the waves, Roy went off to get coffee.. it only took him 3/4's of an hour to get back!! just in time for the countdown & the fireworks. The fireworks were kicked off on top of the Q1... then down to the barge out on the water.. it was definitely a spectacular show! I hope you all had a wonderful New Year's Eve.. I wish each & everyone of you all the very best for 2009!! xx

Me & my sweet baby girl..

Sam wearing his glowstick around his head :D

Our little Princess..

Even the seagulls were out having fun :D

The fireworks.. always spectacular!
