Since returning from Disneyland Paris, I feel like I'm living my life in the fast lane of the motorway and only just managing to dodge the traffic! It has been non-stop - with the youngest's birthday and party, our monthly messy church which both hubby and I help organise and getting back into the school/work routine. Therefore it is quite nice to return to the calm that is "Monday Memories". I turned over my calendar and it revealed this photo;
Here you can see my two girls with my brother-in-law's partner Frederic. The photo was taken at his "surprise" 40th Birthday party which my brother-in-law Simon had organised. His family travelled from France to be with him and so the girls were able to meet his nieces. Although my girls do not speak any French, and his nieces much English they still made friends and were able to play together.
This photo has actually been scrapped - I made Fred a mini book using the photos I had taken at the party - unfortunately I did not take any photos of the actual book! However seeing this reminds me that I must scrap some of the party photos for my albums and at the same time record about how happy we are that Simon has met Fred and that is his now part of our family. He is simply a lovely guy, which such a kind heart and the girls love him to bits (as do we). You may recall my Monday memory from two weeks ago was a photo taken by Fred - you can seen it here. In a former life he was a photo journalist in Paris and he has taken some beautiful photos of the girls which he is always happy to share. We all feel truly blessed to have him as part of our family.
