Happy Anniversary to us..

6 years ago, on a Sunday just like today we were getting ready to spend the rest of our lives together. The morning began with me sitting in front of the hairdresser eating pancakes and fruit (lovingly fed by Belinda) while I had my hair twisted in a french roll and set in curls on the top of my head. After which was followed by time spent at Pr Robs place getting ready, ironing dresses(yep I did iron dresses while they got ready lol), feeding babies (yes I fed my sisters baby while we got ready), putting on makeup and getting ourselves all dolled up. By about 3pm I was on my way to the church in the cart pulled by a Clydesdale. ¬†It wasn’t long before we were exchanging rings and sharing our vows.Shannon, today, after 6 years I still take you Shannon Batten to be my husband, I chose to go with you always, to stand beside you in good times and bad, to comfort you, share with you and be your companion, I promise to love you truely always, to be by your side until we grow old and beyond, I want to hold you close, to listen to your needs, desires and wants, to never take you for granted but to always give thanks for the wonderful gift that you are, to be faithful and honest always. Shannon I give myself to you to be your wife from this day until forever. xxInside my wedding ring in engraved the words ‘3/2/02 until forever’.Here are some pics just to take a trip down memory lane…¬†xx¬†¬†

My baby has teeth!!!

Yep thats right, Matilda has her 2 bottom front teeth coming through. They started coming through on about ¬†monday I think. I thought I could see some little gels appearing and then the next morning Shannon was feeding her and the spoon clanged on something and yep, pearly whites appearing. Very sharp little things and this morning for the first time ever she tried to bite my nipple when i was feeding her. I put a stop to that pretty quickly. Lets hope that doesn’t become a habit any time soon…ouch!I have been trying to get a pic over the last couple of days to share with you but this is as good as i can get¬†unfortunately. My little girl moves too quickly and doesn’t like to move her¬†tongue¬†out of the way. But you can sort of see them…¬†¬†Sorry it’s such a crap shot. When they get a bit bigger you can see them again.I have been busy sewing with my lovely new Janome Memory Craft 9700 sewing machine. I have done some bibs…to try out my new embroidery function and it’s a beauty. So if anyone needs any gifts (great for babies, children’s towels, weddings, birthdays etc) let me know and I’m sure we could come up with something (for just a small fee of course lol).¬†My sister Peta gets married in about 2 weeks so I have been busy sewing for the wedding. So far I have finished 5 bow ties, 1 dress for Matilda and have my bridesmaid dress half done. I still have about a dozen table runners to do after the dress so I guess I should get back to the sewing machine.I’ll leave you with a couple more pics of my girl…trying her new dress from Granny Marion and Grandpa Paul on for size, and eating the paper (of course)…much love, j xx¬†¬†
