A Proud Mother

Well today my DS graduated for High School today. No more school an end to an era. He starts full time job in a weeks time. Here are some photo's of him dressed ready for his Formal, which he had this week, and his Graduation today. The graduation photo's is not that good but will put a better one on when I have a chance.

The first two (2) photo's were taken at his Grandmother's place, the third one (1) was taken at home and the last one (1) was taken at the school hall (not the best photo, hopefully my DH photo might be better).
To my DS Aunts who check out my blog and who have not yet seen these photo's, next time we get together up we will have these photo's and more for you to look at but here is a taste.

Merry Christmas

As promised here are the photo's from my Christmas Party Workshop. The Christmas Tree and the container that is holding the goodies (Diaper) which I got from Split Coast Stampers.

This Christmas Tree was the my table decoration.
A treat for everyone and of course you can not have a treat without chocolate, LOL.

These presents were used for the game we played.

It's time for the silly season again and to see what Santa will bring.
