Some news I can FINALLY share!

My mum loved kids.
She was awesome with them.
She adored her Grandbabies, and was a Ginny to so many other kids through her story time activities at the Lismore library :) This is her, at her one and only Story Time session in Charter's Towers.

Which makes my brother's incredible news a little bittersweet.
The week after she died, my brother Danny and his beautiful wife Adele found that they were going to be having a baby!
(I know..I kept this quiet for SOOOO long!)

Yep, I am going to be an aunty for the first time!

We found mum's prayer journals...she has been praying for this baby for years. And, in true 'mum' fashion, she even shopped for this precious little bundle. We found his/her first Christmas outfit stashed away in her boxes of stuff...it had survived two moves and a monster garage sale! So precious.
Mum would have been so very very excited to meet this little baby.
I figure, that I am going to have to shop and spoil on her behalf...which sounds awfully fun to me :)
Thanks for stopping by and sharing our happy news!
Have a great weekend!
