Jeanette, What fun you all had on Carol's 50th. You Aussies know how to throw a party :)))

I love pavlova, my grandmother used to make the greatest one with strawberries. You are making my mouth water talking about the sausage rolls that were still in the oven. I really miss a good Aussie pie and pasties, too.

Keep on having fun.

G'Day Dear Jan ~~ Great photos of the family all having fun. I am sure you all enjoyed the food, fun and games. I am glad that Carol had such a good 50th birthday and lots of happy memories.
Thanks for your comments about the Digger story - it was a good one and there is an American version with GIs so I hear.
The cooler days have been great and
it is strange that we call 35 etc cool !!! Take care my friend.
Love, Merle.

Happy birthday, Carol. You had your party the same day as I had mine. My weekend plus a couple of days was pretty hectic as well. Looks like you all had a great time and Jen, you took way more photos than I managed to.

Happy belated birthday Carol! What a great idea to combine your 50th with Australia Day celebrations - Oi Oi Oi!
Love the outfits - I always wear something Aussie at our Aust. Day party here, and this year one of my friends said "It's about time we all followed Gina's example, and wore something with an Australian theme to her parties". I guess next year's party will be worth photographing!

Hi Jan, this is a wonderful rundown of Cazz's 50th party. You have a very nice family and nice looking too!
Happy (late) Birthday to Carol!

You are a bit younger than I am, three of my kids are over 50, Tim will be 50 next year. And Baby Karen turned 35 last July.

Glad to see you are posting again some. I do hope the old (??) eyes will keep on perking up some more.

I cannot get over how much 'Aussieness' there was there... makes me homesick... thank you so much for the wishes... never thought I would see the day we would get our referral... looks like we will travel at the end of March or hoping at least the beginning of April... hugs to ya... I know you have left a few messages and wish I could have gotten back to you earlier... things have been crazy and I got SO many comments, emails, phone calls, texts etc that I can't seem to get to everyone to answer them personally so I want to thank you now for your wishes on our adoption and thank you for sharing it with us... it is very much apprecaited... a little Aussie in the making... take care...
