A very happy couple.......

I am very excited and thrilled to tell you all that my eldest son Nick has asked his gorgeous girlfriend Tara to be his wife!!!

They are so happy and excited about their upcoming Engagement Party too because when they were over here from Western Australia for a holiday visiting me and my hubby they gave us an invite to go to it not expecting us to go but we surprised them and said we are going to it!

So we are off to Western Australia for their Engagement Party and we will stay over there for a week.

I haven't talked about my kids much or my hubby but they are a very big part of my life…just not public. This news is too exciting to not say anything. \0/\0/ <--- that’s me doing the happy dance…

When we are over in WA we will be staying with my darling daughter and her three boys….one being her partner and the other two her sons. Our gorgeous grandkids. Its been ages since we have seen them and I can hardly wait for cuddles and kisses from them all.

Oh we went out for dinner when Nick and Tara were here in Melbourne to a Japanese restaurant. Look at all the yummy dishes we had…..

Not too sure about the little fence in the one above…..

This one above was sizzling steak on a very hot stone and the one below was delicious rack of lamb….Mmmmm!

Ice cream with a smiley face ….cute! I didn't have all these dishes but they hubby’s and the kids as well.

~~~~~~~~~

I don't know if I will get to post again until we get back from WA so I might be a little bit late putting up my No. 2 block for my BOM Flirting with Flowers. But don’t worry I will get it up for you all. I am excited to put it up for you all so there is no way I am missing out on doing that.

See you all when I get back from giving my kids and grandies lots of cuddles and kisses :)

Hugs to all…..Vicki

Jude said...

Congrats on your sons engagement and they are a good loking couple so you will get beautiful babies soon. Enjoy your time in the west and come home with lots of new ideas for quilting. I like the box you have in my latest Patchwork & Stitching mag. I was concerned when I read you could use old xrays for the box so I got my DD who works in an exray dept. to check with her boss if there would be any toxic transfer to the material from the xrays, He said 'no' so I will now be happy to use up those old ones sitting at the bottom of the cupboard and be saving money as well, thanks Vicki.
