This time last week  
My beautiful niece had her engagement party.

"Welcome to the family." Not a good photo but I love it so much.

Much better photo of Sarah and Chris.

My sister and her hubby cutting up the engagement cake. It had to be gluten-free for Sarah and lactose-free for Michael, and it was absolutely delicious.

Jess, me and Sarah.

I must have had a good night as I was posting pics of Michael with flowers in his hair, to facebook at 3.30am. I was pretty surprised to see them as I don't remember doing it at all. Still pulled up reasonably okay on Sunday and was fine by the time of my flight home.

What a lovely family (yourself included!)! I always feel sad for people who don't have family around or who are all alone in the world; I don't get to see my relatives often, but just knowing I have my siblings, tons of nieces and nephews and now grand-nieces and nephews, etc makes me feel more 'connected' to the world for some reason.

I hear you - it's that feeling of belonging to the rest of the human race that you get from having relatives, even if you don't see them as often as you'd like. Mine all live interstate but my sister is moving to Brisbane within the next 12 months, I can't wait.

Your niece certainly is beautiful and I love her dress. Both you and your sis have produced some good looking kids there. Does Dee know you have put that photo of her and her hubby on here?

Sounds like you had a fantastic time, with lots of bubbly. You really can't remember posting on Facebook? Tsk! Tsk! *g*

Sarah's dress was so pretty; only problem was the skirt which kept blowing up in the breeze from the ceiling fans.
Dee knew I was putting (have put) the piccies up on facebook which has a much wider audience of people who actually know her. When I mentioned LJ I got the standard "yeah whatever" although that could have been the chardonnay talking.
