2 Down and 3 to Go
and a ROOSTER steals the show!

Well, our house is a lot quieter after this weekend,
and there are only 5 of us sitting around the table
wondering where the time went..........

In only 3 short years of living here,
we now have 2 daughters married
(to awesome son-in-laws, of course)
and 3 left. Which by the way, don't come
calling, for any boys out there, because I'm over
weddings for the time being!!

After washing countless loads of washing
and trying to get the house back in order,
I am finally posting a few photos.
The ones from the photographer, you'll have
to wait for, as James and Abbi
need to see them first!

It was a beautiful day out at the Katherine Museum
complete with chickens, kangaroos
and the odd rooster hanging about.
One of which managed to steal the show!

For those who haven't heard or seen on social media,
we had a lovely black rooster that decided it wanted
to be a flower girl, page boy?? and calmly preceded
Dave and Abbi up the aisle just after the bridesmaids.
(I think it even walked in time to the music)

In looking at the photos afterwards, I noticed that
most eyes and cameras were focused on the rooster
instead of Abbi and Dave, but it was classic!!

It then walked around behind Abbi and
concentrated on the train of her dress,
which had me getting ready to
pounce the moment it pecked one of the beads off!!
(or pooped on it)

And not having had enough attention already,
it crowed throughout most of Grandpa's prayer!!
Not sure if he wanted him to stop praying
or was saying "Amen".

Well, if you want to feel old really quick,
just get 2 daughters married off in 2 years
and start the slippery slope down the other side
of 40, and you'll soon see why I have more
grey hairs than I used to.

God has really blessed and we are excited
to see what the Lord has in store for
our daughters and son-in-laws
and the future of our whole family.

Once you take away the army pants and knives,
they polish up pretty well.

And of course, you couldn't wipe the smile off Hannah's face!!

Lauren and I created a masterpiece for the wedding cake

So the happy couple has driven off into the sunset
in their trusty old 60 series,
and as long it keeps running, they should return
excited and ready to start a new life together
(if it doesn't, we'll go and rescue them)
Either way, they'll be excited and ready to
start on their new adventure, facing it together!
