MR POSTMAN ~ COUSINS ~ HALLOWEEN

THE POSTMAN KNOCKED TWICE

Time to sit back with a coffee, tea or a glass of wine and see what the Postman brought to me.
I bought these beautiful Wreaths - in my favourite Shabby Chic colours from the oh so talented Natasha. Check out her blog or look in her shop. She has some lovely things for you to buy. I have also ordered some more of her gorgeous goodies ~ an Angel, a White Dove, a Pink Dove and also some pretty stars.
My next package contained - the 1st Prize in Jeanne at Dream, Create, Inspire 300th Post Giveaway. A fabulous Little Witch Hazel Bottle. My first ever win in a Giveaway. Thanks so much Jeanne I just love the bottle and the Cute Little Witch.
Riley got to meet up with his cousins yesterday. I went with my daughter Melanie and her children Lachlan and Chloe over to Amy's house so as they could visit with their new little cousin. I love this photo that I took of Lachlan 5, looking in at Riley. So sweet!
The next photo shows Chloe 3, nursing Riley. She has such a funny little smile on her face. She thinks she is so grown up. When Riley dirtied his nappy she went off into his nursery and came out with a nappy and wipes and said she was going to change him. I think if we had let her she probably could have done it.
COSTUMES FOR HALLOWEEN
Lachlan and Chloe took their Halloween Costumes with them to show Amy. Of course they had to put them on. Chloe didn't have her little black tights, so when they are on her costume looks more complete. They are loving the idea of Halloween.

What darling kids (and babies). It must be so much fun watching watching the older ones with the baby.

Beth Leintz said...

PS- I like the clock on your blog- I've often wondered just what the time difference was between me, in Kansas USA and Australia. So now I know it is 16 hours- but I still don't know who's ahead of who- oh, bother, it probably doesn't really matter, unless I need to telephone you!

Peta said...
