Better Late than Never!! Kelvin @ 3 months.

Here's the 3 month picture of Kelvin - "Ranga" the rhino is getting smaller and smaller in every picture!

We had a lovely week away at Bicheno - to recharge the batteries after Christmas, New Year and the wedding! Will post pics soon.

The Wedding

Well here are some pictures from yesterday's wedding. Firstly, Matilda "twirling" in her dress!!

And a photo of me with the bride in my homemade dress (you can't really see it - waiting on copies of pics from other family and friends). You'll notice that my eyes are shockingly blue - think it was the dress colour. I have never found the Clark Kent / Superman story very believable until yesterday when most people didn't recognise me with my hair done, no glasses and make-up!! No sure whether to take it as a compliment or not.
Also, can't help but share the picture of Matilda this morning wandering around the house in her pyjamas, my shoes and swinging her "handbag" (known my most as a potato masher)!

Matilda's Dress - FINISHED!!

Finished Matilda's dress last night, think it's a pretty cute frock!
She'll wear it to her auntie's wedding on Saturday (so it's finished just in time). We went shoe shopping on the weekend and Matilda was allowed to choose them herself. Of course she wanted the pink, glittery, ultra-strappy sandles - which fortunately didn't really fit very well so we have a compromise of some cue pink sandles with flowers on them.
As for my dress, it is finished and just needs to be hemmed up and the thread ends sewn in. All on track for Saturday! Keep an eye out for pics of us wearing our homemade creations.
