We know when Christmas is just around the corner, whe we do our Christmas Cookie baking day
It's a full day at mum and dad's house, measuring, sifting, grinding, stiring, talking, laughing and the occaisional little argument, but hey! when there's four women, a 7 yo girl AND dad who has to put in his 5 cent worth, what do you expect in the the kitchen. But Oh the fun!! We wouldn't change it for the world.

Here they are all baked and cooled
and will be put away till Christmas
Hermy, our 'adopted' sister at the end of the day!!
Last week was Justin's Graduation, and though I fought the tears with the fact that I no longer have children in school, that our lives will start to change over the next few years, I sat as an extremely proud mother of not one, but two children that have turned into wonderful, loving, caring, respectful young adults. Oh! they're not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but I could not have asked for more. So here we are, all scrubbed up, feeling extremely happy.

I'm going to be in so much trouble for putting this photo up!!
