Whilst still on maternity leave, Jo wanted to bring Scarlett to Australia to spend quality time with her Mum who was undergoing significant medical treatment. Fortunately Justin works for a global company and could work out of Brisbane for the five months. As they stayed with us, it was a perfect time for Wanderoos to really get to know their first granddaughter.
|Off you go Mum and Dad, we grandies will share Scarlett|
|Hello there, Great Poppy, hope you're all better...|
|Scarlett shows Neko how to Skype with Dadda|
|Hello Neko! It's me - Scarlett!|
|Gotcha nose, Grandad|
|Yes, I'm an epicurian...|
|I wan't that one Grandad...|
|In awe of Nanna's Bribie Island birds|
|Siblings and partners together again...|
|Celebrating instant summer in lieu of winter in Canada|
Wanderoos hosted a "Meet Mini M" party for family and friends:
|Great Aunts and Uncles (literally!)|
|Oh yay! Neil + Jenni will equal 3....|
|Scarlett providing Great Poppy a laugh|
Having a baby right there in the house provided so many cute moments in our days:
|Boy baby? Good - lets name him Cheryl!|
|Neil helping with decorations|
|and Neko helping too...|
Scarlett discovers the beach and other new stuff:
Along comes Fletcher, joining the Mums and Bubs out and about:
Nanna loves her babies - they are happy to wear her knitting!!
|Scarlett modelling Fletcher's new bear coat|
|Scarlett's eskimo coat|
|Neko's urban cardigan|
A round of farewell parties...
|We're happy to see you all|
|Try it like this Mum, for better effects|
Visit over all too soon, Justin works cleverly to ensure he captures the four generations (father, daughter, son/father, daughter)...
And so, a sad farewell, until we see you face to face again...
PS. Its brilliant to be able to keep up with our global family through the wonders of technology:
|Training for the snow Olympics starts early!|
