up the hill and back again

it is hard to believe that almost a week has passed since we visited my home town of toowoomba for baby Adelaide's christening. once again we were a little bit excited to be spending the night in a hotel but even more excited to be having dinner at Miranda's place. Miranda treated us to a tasty dish of spaghetti which the girls gobbled up and ice cream for sweets. of course she showered the girls with gifts and a birthday present for her goddaughter Claudia.
here we are after our lovely meal ready to go home to have a sleep before the big day. thanks mir you are the best, and most loved by all the bonsers!
the next morning we got rugged up and headed the 30 second drive to the chapel (god i love toowoomba) and proceeded to be witness in welcoming baby Adelaide into 'gods house'.
it was a lovely ceremony and the belle of the ball was very well behaved.
she is lucky to have such wonderful god parents and is surrounded by love and happiness.
oh and not to mention a mother who is a hairdresser and a father who is a brilliant photographer...this girl has it made in the shade, hair, makeup and photos covered!!
on a serious note...it took a while for this bundle to arrive and even when she did arrive it took a while for her to come home. her parents are doing a wonderful job and she is a perfect little girl.
Sarena, Adelaide and Darren
after the chapel we headed back to Darren and Sarena's place for brunch....oh boy what a spread!! food, food and more food
and the next best thing to food is cuddles
this is Jed, he is so cute and oh so healthy, in other words he is a ham ready to be eaten!!
and baby Alyssa is cute as a button and loved smooching me!! this little lady is very very sweet and a very good baby too.
and here is my girl, who turns 3 tomorrow, enjoying her favourite sweet treat, custard tart.
in this photo we have my god daughter Abi holding her brother Jed sitting with Claudia, lili and Mia. it was a lovely day catching up with old friends and the girls had a great time playing and eating.
after the cake was cut..
and the presents opened... i ended up giving them a children's bible and book of prayers cause this little lady wasn't ready...
too lop sided for my liking... have started a new one.
after a good chat and a good laugh we headed back down the hill to our little place on the earth. we had a wonderful time and cant wait for a reason to go back.
here i am with my good friend Darren, it is hard to believe that we have been mates for almost 20years.
i love this blog, this memory is here forever!
