this is my layout for the 123 Cybercrop challenge 1... Not particulary happy with it... but it will do!!
As you may have read from a previous post, the girls did a mercy road trip to Port Macquarie on Tuesday....
I decided to work it in with some Balloons/Wedding stuff and called into Cessnock to pick up some vases i ordered and also visited our gorgeous neice/cousin that we havnt seen face to face in years... but we do communicate through facebook/msn
Emelia was totally shocked to learn that Beth is even shorter than Emelia!!!! Obviously this family is hugely vertically challenged...
But isnt she gorgeous!!!
They have the same eyes... and totally gorgeous teeth!!!
After Cessnock we drove onto Port Macquarie. We stayed with Gary, Kel and Junior!! God, that animal!!!! The really good piccies are on Mums camera, but i will share when i get them!!
This is Gary & Kel. Kel looks very managerial in her uniform!! LOL (Its not the best photo though.... Kel is really tall and so gorgeous!!) Gary is gorgous too off course!!! (There you go Gaz, i didnt forget you)...
It was so funny, I commented on how lovely Kel looked in her uniform and Gaz said to Kel, that all we commented on was that Gary smelt like tyres!!! LOL... too funny - had to be there!!
And this handsome creature in Junior!! Junior spent alot of time with a chiwowa... (I cant spell that!!!)... He thinks he is a lap dog too and will think nothing of jumping up and sitting right on your lap to have a nap like a little lap dog, only this dog is like 35 kilos!!! Too funny!!!
We tried to get the seeds of this dandilion in the photo... didnt quite work... :(
Now the purpose of this trip was too see my brother Mat and check him out... He is quite crook!!:( Self inflicted with no hope of recovery really... but we wont talk about that. This trip was about reconection/reconciliation.....
Mum has some great photos on her camera, but i have these ones.
We went for a bit of a shop. Mat loves to shop and though nothing of following Emelia around Supre looking at dresses... Here they are shopping!!
Obviously by the look on Emelias face, she didnt agree with Mats taste????
Then came the big surprise and what we were "hoping" for with this trip!! A reconciliation with Mats kids. They dont live together and are rather disfunctional as far as the "traditional" family goes. I have never seen little Zac and Mum last saw him at 18 months. We were hoping to see the kids but just didnt know if it would be able to be arranged.
This is the last time we were all together, we havnt seen the kids since Garys wedding in 2001 i think it was??
Cass (Mats Oldest daughter/ not biological) lives across the garden from Mat we just found out and we saw them on their balcany. So we called Cass over and learnt she had just gotten engaged!! How awesome!!!
Cass is a little bit famous in the horse world...
Here is a link to an article in the Daily Telegraph. Cass was the strapper of Sky Biscut. Here is another photo with the horse (She is leading him)
This is Cass and her fiance Mick.
So anyway, Cass organised for Zac to come for a visit. He is staying with friends of the family at the moment. He is the most gorgeous kid and i cant believe he is so well spoken, and polite with what we believe him to have lived through.... He has spent alot of time with his Big Sister Cass though, so she has certainly done something right with him!! He is lovely.
Him and Mum reconnected instantly!!
Mum made Zac a scrapbook about our family, so at some stage he can see that he has a Nan and uncle and aunty and cousins that love him...
Mum sent it to Mat some time ago, so Mat pulled it out and Mum read it with Zac. He reconsises who we are, so they have talked about us.... But he is so smart. His only 4 you know!! LOL
Here is Zac and Mat playing Cars. Zac looks so much like Gary!!!
With Big Sister Cass
Cass has "Sky Biscute" on her boob.... LOL
Here is Cass and Paige. Paige is Mats biological daughter and the middle child between Cass and Zac. Poor Paige, she is going through what Emelia went through at 13!! What is it with girls and wanting to grow up so fast lately!!! This is 2008...
And all three gorgous girls together again at last... 2008
