Our Big Party Day......

Yesterday ...29th March... we had a big  March celebration day here at my place.........

One grand daughter had her 20th Birthday and also graduated from Uni  with a Batchelor of Creative Arts degree in Media studies....

Another grand daughter had her 15th Birthday...

One grand son had his 13th birthday .....
And..
One Son in Law turned 50....

The whole day was organised by my daughter Mary and her daughter Christy...(Miss 20)
 All the food was brought here already prepared ... only the final cooking on the BBQ  and the hot chips in the air cooker had to be done. My grand daughter Lisa's fiancee did all the outdoor cooking
 and my grand daughter Elizabeth supervised the hot chips.....
Hubby and I were 'guests' in our own home.... it was great seeing how happy and comfortable they all were doing this.


Hubby put a lace curtain over the clothes line for me to give the yard a pretty party look...it was so pretty with the sun on it...

t was a 'Hot Dog and Hamburger' party .. here all the rolls and buns, with the sauces and salads are waiting for the  finishing touches... the meat patties and franks...

and here's the BBQ man doing his thing with the onions and meat patties..... smelt wonderful...
