Proud Grandparents

A quick bragging post... Last night we visited the Hawksebury Show to see how GS Ryan did as he had entered three chooks and some eggs into the show. Well he did very well winning a First place 2 seconds and Highly commended.
These are his 2nd. place winning eggs. Looks very proud of himself I think.

This chook took out first place

And this was his 2nd. place card for the next chook

He also had a chook similar to this one that he got Highly Commended.

Where do the days go

I promise myself each day that I will update my blog but the day has ended and still no blogging. So today is the day before May ends.
I know this is a little late but I wanted to share this photo of my 2 oldest Grandchildren with their Grandfather and Great Grandfather at the recent Anzac Day Service. This was the first time Ryan has attended a service. He stood very proud even though it was very wet and ever so cold.
The weekend after Dh and I looked after these 2 whilst their parents went away to celebrate their 10th. wedding anniversary.

We had a great time with the kids.

And isn't it amazing what you let your Grandkids do whilst their parents are away. We did some cleaning up in the front garden so the 2 of them decided to help. I am not sure whether Ryan is trying to sweep his little sister away or trying to stop her from leaving home.

After crawling everywhere she needed a good hose down.

Last week I cut out all these squares from flannelet to make a little raggy cot quilt for the portable cot Zoe sleeps in when she is here each week

Yesterday I completed the stitching and got it washed and dried. These little quilts always feel so soft and cozy. I was pleased at how it turned out.

Another UFO out of the box. Yippeeeeeee. I picked this quilt up from the quilters on Saturday and have started to put the binding on. This quilt is for Zoes bed the last of all the things I have made for her room.
