Making Happy Memories Together

The last few days have been such happy ones, full of fun times with lots of smiles. It was wonderful having our daughter here to help celebrate her dad’s 70th. She also got to see her darling Gran, which was an added bonus. Here are some of the highlights. (Click on any photo to enter gallery and read captions.)

Yesterday, it was time for Mandy to fly back up to Johannesburg. Her family have been coping quite well without her, and her husbandΒ  has even tried out his cooking skills. My granddaughter told me that although they managed okay, they were all “Just hanging on by a thread” without Mom. She is very good at dramatising situations, but I’m sure they were all so glad to have mom back at the helm in theΒ  kitchen, as she’s a fabulous cook.

Time is marching on, and this week, I really must get up on the step ladder and see what delights are hiding in the tops of my cupboards. (Actually, that should probably read “I really must get hubby up on the step ladder.”) I’m sure there are many items which will be going to the Animal Welfare for their monthly fund raising sales. I’ll really try my best to pop in on as many of you as I can, but as moving day draws closer, it will get more difficult to find time to sit at my computer. I really wish I were twins.

  1. What a lovely post Sylvia, many, many more happy birthdays to your handsome hubby. Now he has the shirts to inspire him, who knows maybe step up to 10km runs… So pleased to see your dear Mom looking so well.

  2. Good to make happy memories with your family AD, glad you guys enjoyed it πŸ˜‰
    As for the packing and sorting – not a job to be envied! I wish you luck!!

  3. My greatest desire is to build memories that are remarkable. In the end, it is the connections that we make during our lifetime that will have lasting value. A wonderful post. πŸ™‚

  4. Such lovely memory making times and the pictures to go with them. I loved every single shot, but the one of the two of you gave me tingles. Love that twinkle in your eye… πŸ˜€

  5. LOTS of happy memories! What a fine-looking lady you are, Sylvia πŸ™‚ I especially like the one of you and hubby. It’s a glam looking place too. Did I spy a loveseat in there with the apples? May the happy days continue and be careful with those ladders!

  6. What a joy to have your family with you and hubby and that your mom got to join in for part of the time. Lovely pictures. Your deserts are weight watchers. Right? πŸ™‚

  7. I wish you were twins, too, and one of you lived in CA real close to me! πŸ™‚ Beautiful pics, and a lovely time. I love your granddaughter’s comment, “They were hanging by a thread.” Cute! πŸ™‚

  8. Fantastic images! I can see the love and joy of your celebration in them. The hotel is absolutely gorgeous! I had to chuckle over the fat cat. What a life he has! Ha.. Enjoy your packing. I almost want to move just so I can purge the many things we don’t need. Instead, I just have piles and piles I am moving around the house to find a place for. Eeek! πŸ™‚

  9. What a fun time you all had Sylvia. Please give hubby my best wishes for his birthday and thanks for sharing these lovely memories. πŸ˜€ β™₯ Big Hugs β™₯

  10. So lovely to see your wonderful, happy family photos Sylvia. Family time spent like this really is the best and looks like your hubby had the best birthday. What an extra blessing too that your dear mum was able to join in with the festivities. Love all your smiles. Thinking of you for the busy days ahead… πŸ™‚
