STEVE TURNS 30 TODAY... so a rather special day for him.
I sure can't forget the day he was born! He was VERY OVERDUE, and in fact I was booked in for an induction and possible caesarean section three days after he was actually born. That's because by the time he arrived .. he weighed 10 pound 12 ounces!
He wasn't the easiest kid to deliver, believe me. So... of all my kids births, his sticks out as the worst! But... I got over it.
Moving on... We hope he has a lovely day, even though he has to work.
Here's a few photos from yesterday:
ABOVE: Archie got bumped on the nose, so Dante comforted him. How adorable is that? Awwww.
ABOVE: Playing happily.
It has been very nostalgic going through old photos for my Mum's 80th Birthday...
ABOVE: This one was taken about 30 years ago (when my Grandmother was 70), and was probably one of the very few times all my Mum's siblings and their mother were photographed together; before my Grandmother passed away aged 86.
My Mum is the eldest of TEN... 5 girls, then 5 boys! Mum is the one in red.
ABOVE: This photo is very dear to me. It is of My Grandmother, my Mum, my daughter Lacy and her daughter Brylee, and me.
5 generations of direct line, mothers - daughters. You don't get to see that very often.
Sadly, my Grandmother passed away only 18 months later.
ABOVE: In the box of photos and stuff my Mum left here for me, I found this. My mother's school leaving certificate. Hard to believe, but 8 years later she was married with 3 kids already!
In between then... she went to college, got a job and met me Dad.
Next month we will be celebrating her 80th birthday, a stone's throw away from that very school that she left 67 years ago! I must remember to take some photos of the school when we go over in May.
Today I shall be working on this lot:
ABOVE: The photo boards. Not sure how I shall be arranging the photos yet, or display ideas... but I'm sure it will come together over the course of a few days.
It's almost 11 am and I am still in my pyjamas! Seriously... my back was so sore when I got up this morning I could hardly move. So I sat down in front of the telly and didn't move. lol
Now... I'm starting to feel more human again, I might make a move and hit the shower.
Then who knows?
Get on with those photo boards me thinks.
