a halloween photo

Well, Ayla's first Halloween went well. All the cousins came over to visit in their outfits. Ayla made a special appearance in her little orange suit. Of course by the time i got to take this photo her cousins had worn her out and she was falling asleep in my arms.

I was so excited to be in UK for halloween this year, and it met all my expectations! I love all the different holidays in Autumn and Winter.

cant wait til tomorrow

Another weekend gone by in a flash, but I am really looking forward to Halloween. This is the first time I have been in UK for it since 2006.

I cant wait to see all my nieces and nephews in their costumes rather than just get photos after the fact. Ofcourse, I also cant wait to dress Ayla in her little costume. More on that tomorrow!

Kerem flies in for a visit tomorrow hopefully so that will make it even more special.

Welcome to my new followers Marjo and Pauline and Old Geezer, sorry it has taken me so long to say Hi!

woyww 125

It's Wednesday, I'm at home (Tuesday night) and I've got some pages to share.

Can you tell I'm pleased to be joining in the fun again at the crafting 'place to be': Julia's bloghop a place where we share what we are working on.

I have been a bit monopolised by DD but getting a moment to scrap some of her first photos was a real treat when we were at Rachel House, one of the CHAS facilities in Kinross.

Hope you like the pages, and I hope to get a peek at what everyone else is working on too.

We have had our challenges, but for today we are at home.

Out on day pass

well, it is 8 weeks and we have been in and out of the hospital for almost 7 weeks. I cant tell you how grateful I am that we have had such fabulous support - from family, friends, the hospital...everyone involved in fact!

Since Wednesday we have been trying a couple of hours out of the hospital room. I have had snatches of time to do things like email, blog and organise Ayla's clothes. She has had such lovely gifts, but i am afraid of not getting to them in time before she outgrows them. I tend just to use the same things over and over in the hospital.

well, short post for now to make sure it posts. Forgive me for not responding to everyones lovely comments. I only get onto blogger when i get a moment at home...and there are not But from the bottom of my heart ...thank you for your support.
