Aisha arrived from Sydney late last week with 5 month old Austin, and spent four wonderful days with us.
It was the first time I'd met my newest grandson, and the first time the two sisters held each other's babies.
A photo session ensued rather rapidly!
No doubting these two are cousins, right?
I can't tell you the joy I experienced each day with an armful of babies, but also the delight of seeing the LOVE Aisha had for little niece Cully May, and the LOVE Blossom had for nephew Austin Knox.
Both are natural mothers, natural aunties, naturally wonderful daughters to Mr E and I.
Blossom kept swishing her head as she played with Austin so I couldn't capture a good photo of them together, but this one of Aisha with Cully May is lovely...
During our time together we girls talked our heads off, not for a minute running out of conversation, which led Mr E and Blossom's DB to regularly ask when entering the room, "You's are still talking??"
Aisha's response: "Yeh! The women in our family can talk forever."
So very true, and how very grateful I am for that.
Aisha and Austin flew home Monday afternoon and we miss them already.
Fortunately they'll be back again next winter with the rest of their precious family. In the meantime Blossom, Aisha and I chat every day and keep up with our lives in the 'here and now' no matter how far apart we live.
Time to show you the fourth new Christmas design for October's issue of The Stitchery Club...
Do you like the non-traditional Christmas colours I chose for next month's sewing themed patterns?
To be honest I'm not much of a green & red girl, even at Christmas, so I'm enjoying choosing palettes for a modern or shabby chic style of decorating.
What colours are found around your home during the festive season?
