Enough time off, now on with the show..... ;)!

I am still having trouble with my internet service but at the moment is seems to be working okay, so fingers crossed I can get through this post without any problems! My darling Mr Deekie Belle is working very hard to fix it all up for me but I am still not on my own computer. (Iinet, can you see me shaking my fist at you !!)

Anyway, I just wanted to share a few more photo's of Danneeka and John's wedding... I have loaded some of the proofs on to hubby's laptop so here are some of my absolute favorites.

Getting Deekie ready for the biggest day of her life...

Proud daddy.., isn't she beautiful! (and look at my hubby... nearly 26 years married us, and I still get butterflies when he walks into a room..... ooh I love him so much, he is my rock!!)
To everything there is a season, and although her daddy was finding it hard (who am I kidding I was too!!) it was time for daddy to give her to another man, who will love and care for her, protect her and adore her for the rest of her life...

So Much Love Between Them. ..... You. Could. Feel. It....
You may kiss....... the bride... Signing the register
I absolutely love this..... completely overwhelmed in daddy's arms.......
Bridal Party of closest family and best friends Wonderful....
Silly girls...sisters, cousins and new sister's in law
Oh what a feeling!
Angel Ben and Khye... our gorgeous other married kids (Angel is our eldest girl). Angel was 16 weeks pregnant here with number 2, (a little Honey girl!!) and she did all the hair and helped with make-up - she is such a treasure!

Our gorgeous kids, from Left to righ: Son-in-law Ben with wife Angel, (our eldest daughter), and Ben is holding Khye, then in the middle, Danneeka and Jonathan **kissing** next is our Alora, "the explorer"hehe, and then, Steve our Rock Star Son.Our adorable Grandbug. Aaahhhh!! I love these of Khye..



My helpful brother-in law.. He was a jack of all trades.... and Master of Ceremony :)!!!

Jenny, what a beautiful wedding. You are an amazingly talented woman. I was so glad to see you had some new posts.

Hi Jenny, thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving some lovely comments. Your daughter's wedding looks amazing - she made such a beautiful bride. Looks like it was a lovely wedding - I love the pink bridesmaid shoes. Can't believe you did all the food - you are amazing (and here I am stressing about morning tea for 30 for my daughter's 1st birthday party!!) Your family all look so lovely and your grandson is a real cutie. I look forward to more of your future posts xx

Jenny said...

My darling Jen, you my friend are a true inspiration. Your family are just so real & beautiful. Your kids are to be proud of. I dream of such happy partnerships for my beautiful boys in years to come. I look forward with butterflies to hopefully being a younger grandmama. Well I'll take any age. Khye is of course edible as usual. And Angel is glowing. And a beautiful little girl , you lucky Grandma. Gosh I miss those days of new babies & anticipation. I'd go back, truly I would, and do it all again in a flash. I have missed you.
