We had Kate's baby shower on Saturday 10th November, I wanted to share some photos of the gorgeous Mother to be.

Kate bought this new dress for her baby shower, it suits her so much, she is just glowing, pregnancy suits her so well.

             I love this photo, the expectant Mother, the most excited first time Grandma (aka me!!)

                                                          The two first time Grandma's

                Kate looks so wonderful, she hasn't put on any weight in herself, only a baby belly

Kate and her BFF (they went to school together), this is Karly's second baby, he was born on 21st September.

             Kate opening one of the gifts with her Goddaughter Emelia, who is totally excited.

My niece, Kate's cousin, Lisa and her little boy Charlie.  Kate and Lisa are great friends, Lisa is an only child.

So, our other big news is, we decided to sell at The Tweed and move closer to Kate, Josh and our first grandchild.  We put our house up for sale at the beginning of August, it took 7 weeks to sell and a long settlement.  Settlement was last Friday, 23rd November, 2018.  What a job, we've been at this house for 11 years and we had TOO much stuff, we took 2 tons to the rubbish tip, I sold over $900 of things we no longer required. We took several load of all sorts of things to op shops around our area. It was still a very big move.  Saturday 17th November we hired a truck to do a pre move before the removalists came.  Kate, Josh, our good friends and us loaded the truck which Stephen drove, Kate and Josh had a ute and a trailer full of plants and other stuff from the shed. I drove one of our cars with the boot and back seat packed full.  John and Vicki had their car packed full and we headed off in convoy style with our 2hour trip ahead of us.  That was a big day, we arrived back home in the truck at 9.30pm. The Sunday Stephen and I packed the kitchen up, which took all day. The removalists arrived at 8.15am on the Monday morning with a LARGE truck and packed it full but it still didn't fit everything, we packed our car again and we were on the 2 hour journey again.  On Tuesday morning Stephen and John went back to the Tweed with car and trailer and filled it with the bags and boxes the removalists couldn't fit in the truck the day before...…. we're finally here and settled.

This has been my excuse for not posting any BLOG posts as it's been a mammoth job with sorting through everything, packing etc...…..

We bought a 3/4 acre block of land at Elimbah, 15 minutes from Kate's house.  We are currently renting Kate and Josh's first home at Narangba until our new home is built.

Lots of exciting times ahead and super excited about our Christmas gift, a grandchild.
Only a couple of weeks to wait now.  I'll be sure to up date you all with photos of our first grandchild.
