Stew, Me and 5 of our kids...Rena and Uncle Andrew, she was not impressed with anyone holding her except her Mummy!

Unfortunately Griffin is addicted to Playstation, to the exclusion of almost everything else. We are going to have to work on changing this!

All our kids and grandkids, with the exception of our son Russell who lives in Australia, and his son Joshua who lives in Whitianga.

Me and my girls.

Lacy and our kids.

Father and Daughter....

And again!
Everyone was taking photos of everyone else.... it was quite funny!

The girls taking a photo of me... taking a photo....

Lacy came over with her best friend Tim... who's in a wheelchair due to a motorbike accident 11 years ago. He is a neat guy...

Joel and Huston with Grandma (errr dat's ME)... LOL.

Finally... a little video of Rena who has just learnt how to walk...
Steve and Mike leave today.... I will miss them so much!
Once they are gone I will have to do a big tidy up because tomorrow we are heading off to the beach (Whitianga) for the long Queen's Birthday Weekend. I am hoping to have a very quiet, lazy couple of days! I'm knackered!
It hasn't been THAT quiet today... but good. Mike's car got a fancy smancy alarm system installed today... and the boys left around lunchtime. Then I got to do the housework, then go up to school to watch the Assembly and then bring the kids home.
Fairly quiet afternoon doing the washing etc... got nachos cooking for dinner, then it will be time to get things organised for our trip away this weekend.
End of Day: a bit early for me, but I have 'stuff' to do! Can't see me getting any blog reading or commenting done now till I get home on Monday the rate I'm going! If you hear from me on your blog it will be a miracle! lol
nite nite.
