Twenty one !!

Life has been crazy busy this past month, boys returning from Oz (that was exciting!!! one from work and one from a holiday! still missed them both!! And was over the moon to have them home again!!) then water blasting the house and tiding up the grounds as we had Ben's 21st party to get ready for!  It came around so fast and ended up being a fantastic weekend and I am slowly getting over it.  Not as young as I once was and don't really do the late nights like I used too!!  Got home at 4 am - I should not need to say anymore!!
The  cake turned out better than I thought, his key looked great, (my Uncle gave me this gorgeous piece of heart rimu which we used to mount the key on. ) and his photo book I made with favorite photos of him growing up, it seemed to all come together!  While doing the photo book, you realize how time speeds by, I think we don't truly realize this until we get older!

All and all it has been a great time and like my youngest son told me, √≥ne down, one to go'!!  I have been doing some stitching at night so will take some photos soon and post! Until then, have a great week and take care,
