Happy NEW YEAR and DSO Blog hop

hee hee- well it's been a while since I've yakked on here hasn't it? And boy has time just flown. Can you believe it's 2010 ALREADY??

Did you have a wonderful Christmas? Was Santa kind to you??

We had a wonderful Christmas Lunch with family and close friends. It was a busy and tiring day but one that left you all warm and fuzzy inside- KWIM?3

Our Annual family photo ( this time the boys behaved themselves- lol) and Nathan couldn't WAIT to show his dad that he is now actually taller than him- hahaha

Yup- just a smidge, but definitely taller- hahaha

My Dad's best friends Lizzy and Wayne who had us in stitches with the battery operated salt and pepper mills as Lizzy had never used one ;-)1

My Dear Daddy and Nathan and YUP Bunny you are sooo right- he does look more and more like my dad-lol

AND AND- oh my, We had the BESTEST NEWS yesterday too!

Nathan has passed with flying colours and will be entering University to study for Civil Engineering this year!

WOOOHOOOOOOO! I'm so proud of him and was a sobbing basket case yesterday when Wayne and I fetched his results from the school. Nathan is away with friends and had to wait till we phoned him- lol. But he just heard my voice and new he had passed. Was even more thrilled to find out he had a great Varsity pass too. He's celebrating the NEW YEAR and his PASS with friends. Proud of you my boy ;-)

Hi Kim,

Congratulations on your son's passing mark! Wait until you actually see him waering his cap and gown at the graduation ceremony so that can see what a real sobbing basket case you can be (it happened to me when my lil' sister graduated as a engineer this past nov.)
