GOOD MORNING MONDAYS #27

Here we go again, welcome to another Good Morning Mondays update and link up. I am amazed at how quickly the weeks are passing and we are already half way through April.

As I sit here writing this I am glad that I keep a daily diary because I can’t really remember what I did this past week :-).

My husband had another appointment with the dentist and all is good with his tooth now and he hasn’t any more pain. (Yay).

Our no 2 son was able to spend a morning helping his dad on a job up in (what we call) the bush. He had a great time and loves spending any time he can with his dad. I did warn his father though that he talked a lot, and that was one comment I got when they got home. Phew can he talk.

I suppose the more he talks, the more he asks, the more you tell and the more he learns.

We have been working really hard on their piano this week and their teacher was really pleased. I am amazed how repetition really works.

Friday night we had our granddaughters 2nd birthday tea. It takes us about 2 hours to get there but it was definitely worth it. We all had a great time and she is such a blessing and really cute.

She blew out her candles without too much spit and opened her present with such joy.

We actually arrived just as they were getting out of bed after their afternoon sleep and once she realised who we were she was so excited to see us. It brings such joy to my heart.

My daughter did a great job of cooking us all tea. There was 13 of us and the first dinner we have had like that with the other set of grandparents. There was also a few aunties and two uncles there too.

Here she is in her sparkly dress, her aunty ( our no 2 daughter – 9 years old) helped dress her.

DSC_1269She got a variety of presents and it was just fun watching her open them. Her parents have taught her well and she always opened the cards first, had a look inside, handed them to mum and then opened the present.

DSC_1273Here she is opening her new wheel barrow. She then used it as a rubbish bin and put all the scrap paper in there. She is going to be such a help out in the garden now.

DSC_1268Here is granddad with our youngest granddaughter.  I think it was all a bit overwhelming for her but she enjoyed sitting there and taking it all in. It is her birthday next month, so now she knows how it all goes.

We got home quite late but it was well worth it, we always enjoy getting together and family times are so special.

We then had to get up to go to music lessons but we were able to put them off a couple of hours, which was nice.

So that’s about it for me, now onto our link up.

Thank you ladies for taking the time to link up and thank you to everyone else. You are such a blessing to me.

I think I am home every day this week, which I am really looking forward to. I have some bedroom curtains to make and the children need some new home clothes, jumpers etc. I have everything I need to make these items, now I just need the time.

I am amazed at how God uses the every day to open our eyes to His glory and I am so grateful.

May God bless you all this week as you focus on Him, your family and those in need.

Blessings to you all dear friends.

  1. I love hearing about your weeks (really). My husband always comes by & reads with me 🙂 . One thing I’ve noticed is week after week: family, family, family. So inspiring!
    Praise God for the hub’s teeth. And…seriously…she’s adorable.
    I’ll be back later to read the rest of the posts from the week. Until then…
    Blessings,

    1. Thank you for your kind comment Deborah. I know that we are probably totally biased but she is so adorable and cute and fun to boot. Family hasn’t always been my first priority and once God changed my heart I feel totally blessed to have been able to have more children and now grandchildren. The Lord has really blessed my husband regarding his teeth and there is more to come for him. I share most of your posts with my husband too and we find the differences between us (farming wise) very interesting. Blessings my dear friend xxx

  2. Ah!!! The joy of grandchildren!

    You are a blessing,
