Just wanted to share my two gorgeous girls out today for Amy's hen's party. Everyone was collected at 8.30 by bus this morning and they spent a day in the Hunter Valley. They visited 3 wineries, the Chocolate Shop and a couple of other places. They came back to a local hotel and then have gone out on the town this evening!!! Haven't heard a word from Amy so she must be having a great time.

We looked after the girls (Ophelie and Delphi) and thankfully I finished off the flowergirl's dresses, they just needed hooks and eyes and the crystal buttons put on the back.

By the looks of the pictures everyone enjoyed themselves tremendously. The weather today was absolutely stunning, hence the really blue sky.

The wedding is now only 1 month away. I just hope that Bali isn't too humid in May. Can't wait. Love Chris

1. Our two girls Dana (dark hair) Amy the bride to be.
2. All the girls on the Hen's day.
3. Amy just chillin'.

Great pics. A whole month till the wedding and the girls' dresses are all made. What will you do with all that spare time? (And how is your quilt going?) Excited for your family. Go create happy memories.

Thanks Betsey. Well, I'm not sure if you are up on our weather down under, but we've had the most dreadful summer with very high humidity and I just couldn't be blowed sewing. I've got 25 squares still to make for my quilt!!!!
I go to the gym once a week and I go swimming 2-3 times a week in a heated pool plus babysitting grand-kids and looking after my mum makes for a full schedule. I'm on school holidays from Italian classes too, so I'm never idle! Love Chris

Ha ha ha! thanks Deb, well I don't think it's from Trevor (he is as bald as a badger as the saying goes). Actually they have Trev's beautiful blue eyes. Mine are Hazel (brown with green) I'm looking forward to the pictures too, Amy will be a beautiful bride and the flowergirls dresses look gorgeous. Love Chris

How wonderful for all attending! And you get precious time with your granddaughters. I look forward to pics of the wedding. It is sure to be a crowd pleaser. I will look up where Bali is, sounds like a romantic place.

We were so lucky to have such a great weekend. It's a bit overcast as I write now (7.00am Monday morning) but during April we expect a bit of rain. Bali is a beautiful place in Indonesia. Love Chris

Good Sunday morning Chris, except we aren't having your pretty sunny weather. It is getting ready to rain and I'm hoping it holds off until I'm in church or back home.
All the young ladies look so lovely. It looks like a great support and turn out for Amy's day. Of course Dana and Amy are as beautiful, as ever...wonder where that beauty comes
I'm glad everyone had a good time, but especially Amy. Also, I know you're glad to get the dresses finished, as that it one more thing you can check off your list. I know you will enjoy the wedding, but I also know as Mother of the bride, it will be good when things are done and you can relax afterward.
We are all looking forward to sharing this part of your life through pictures and post. Best Wishes to all-Toogie

Thanks Toogie, you are spot on. I can't wait for this month to go by. I've got some eye surgery this Thursday and next Thursday (Maundy Thursday) the day before Good Friday. I have to go back the day after the surgery, but obviously can't on Good Friday, so will go back on the Tuesday after Easter. I'm so looking forward to the wedding now. Love Chris

It sounds like a better than a great day. What a boatload of great memories for them all. I'm glad you managed to finish the dresses. Can't wait to hear about the wedding now and see the pictures. I've always wanted to visit Bali.

Your girls are so beautiful (take after their mother I see). What fun to plan a wedding and in Bali no less. Nice that they took the time to spoil themselves.
Have a great day my friend, look forward to seeing more pics of the girls dresses
