Family and friends time.....

It's been a fab few days of family and friends and I have a few pics to share with you including a couple to show you the generosity of others.
On Saturday my youngest daughter Amy brought her little family here.  She is amazing.  She had only given birth to Stephen on Wednesday and life is already back to 'normal' for her.  She loads her car with the three children and all the bags, bottles and bits you have to bring with you and drives herself the 45 min journey to get here.  The two little girls are so proud of their baby brother and are such good little helpers for their mummy.  After a couple of hours of really special family time Amy then loaded them all back into the car and set off to meet her sister in law and baby nephew Jack in town for lunch and a bit of shopping!
As you can see 'little' Steve is is being carefully watched over by his big sisters in top left pic, being cuddled by Great Auntie Jo in the middle and hugged by his cousin Jack in bottom right pic. It's as if he has been around for ages  :-)

Yesterday we had a wonderful Funday Monday because we were joined by Michelle, Sam and Lexi  :-)  Brent had gone back to work so they came out for a bit of company and to brighten our day  :-)
We were joined by our friend T [bottom left] and Jo's daughter M [bottom right] and of course there is no Funday without Jo and we share everything so it was such a special day for us all.  Michelle is doing a brilliant job with our gorgeous little twinnies....they are being weighed today and I'm sure they have gained lots since their last weigh in  :-)
All three of our new grandbabies have been so spoiled with gifts from so many kind people.  I feel I just must show you the huge parcels that came through my door for them from my dearest blogging friend Keryn.
Both my girls were totally blown away by her generosity cos in each parcel was...
A beautifully crocheted blanket for each of them and a selection of knitted cardigans.  Aren't they truly wonderful?
Thank you so much Keryn...we all love you so much.
I'm sorry but I failed to snap Steve's parcel when opened.


The other gifts I received for the twins were two beautifully parcelled little bibs sent to me from Louise.  Michelle really loves these and they were commented on several times when she took the twinnies into her school to show them off to the staff she works with.  Thank you so much Louise.  Louise makes these bibs to sell so keep a look out for her next batch in her folksy shop if you're interested in buying some.

How gorgeous are those photos?! Lovely to see the twins wearing their bibs. They look huge on them tho. I'd forgotten how tiny little newborns are. I haven't forgotten little Stephen. I'm working on some new bandana bibs with some gorgeous new fabrics so he can test one out for me!! Just need to finish them. x
