here is mir with mia, lili and my niece chelsea. the cake did not last long but we saved one slice for sleeping beauty (when she wakes she is the beast!)
this could be a photo of me and my sister narelle at the same age. lili looks like me and chels is a dead ringer for her mum. she is sooooo pretty!!
miranda was the first person i met when i started year 10 at an all girls school in toowoomba in 1987... yes you read that correctly over 20 years ago!!
we have been through so much together but not once have we had a fight, not even so much as a frown! she is a dear, dear friend and godmother to claudia. while she was here we set up a blog for her but she has not added a post yet. she has called it JustM and i am sure that you gorgeous blog pals will make her feel welcome.
on other important news middle child mia is off to prep in two weeks. while i was ironing on name tags to her uniforms she just had to try it on. here she is striking a pose as a preppie. she is so cute and will do well this year. it is funny how i was a complete mess when lili started two years ago but with mia it is no big deal. i will miss her on my days off but i am also looking forward to having alone time with my little claudia (or gloria as my dad likes to call her).
the best thing about having all girls is that i can use hand me downs. the shirt was lilis and all three are in great condition. i had to buy smaller sized shorts as mia is a bit of a skinny minny, however we have all packed on the kilos this summer!! now all we have to do is buy shoes... aaarrggg
you know how we have been reading the fairy journal that the girls got from narelle and family for christmas, well last night we read an entry in the journal that tells you how to see them, what time etc... what they wear usually matches the tree or shrub they hide in etc... when narelle came to pick chels up we were at our lovely flowering shrubs out the front and narelle said to lili 'these look like fairy crowns, you should paint them gold and leave them out for the fairies'. lili totally understood what she meant cause we had just been reading about it. we all said what a great idea... we waved bye to my sister and fam and came back inside. when i looked at lili a cheeky fairy had put a 'crown' on her head!!! we were all freaking out!!!! it really blew lili away and has made us even more determined to see one.*_*
i believe in fairies do you?
