Family time...

BBQ lunch at our house
(my four sisters and the 2 Nanas were there)

We have had a big weekend. Kirby celebrated her 18th Birthday with dinner at a hotel in Mt Gambier with about 20 of her good friends. They are a lovely bunch of kids and they had a nice meal, a few drinks and lots of laughs. Then at about 9.30 they headed off to some other venues for dancing. We tagged along until midnight then we oldies turned into pumpkins and went home. Kirbz wandered in a little later (.............considerably later!).

On Sunday, we hosted a family BBQ for the 'aunties and uncles and Nanas' . Cousins and partners and kids dropped by throughout the afternoon. The day resembled our Christmas Day lunch, except there was no pudding!! Gus did a great job with the BBQ, the salads were yummy and the pavlova and trifle for dessert, delicious. The weather was mild, windy but not cold - a bonus. We had a lovely shower of rain in the afternoon which was great for the garden and lawns.

I just did a count up and we saw 29 friendly faces drop in during the day so it is no wonder we collapsed into bed at 9.30 last night - tired, happy and just a little tipsy! Lol!

Bring on Christmas I say!

Cheers for now, Joolz

    I have friends and family that live in Mount Gambier and my grandmother was born there. A beautiful, pretty place to live.

  3. Looks like you're practising for christmas! We have a birthday today. My son turns 20, but we won't have anywhere near as many visitors as you!

  4. What a family of good looking women your hubby has the honour to live with! Thanx for sharing this milestone with the rest of blogland. We don't have any kids so sharing in others' is always a bonus.
