Two weeks? or - The blink of an eye.

Two weeks have flown by.
Today Jenn will be going back to England.
She went 18 months ago for a 2 week vacation!
When she goes back she is moving in with her lovely boyfriend, Dean.
I will miss her but of course I want her to be happy and make a good life.
These are some of the happy memories we made this Christmas.

aw, Clippy!! What beautiful pictures. Your daughter is GORGEOUS, just like her mama. And, the boys are pretty easy on the eyes, as well!! Too bad your family has cornered the market on good looks!!

Clippy Mat said...

thanks all for those really nice comments.
we are a lucky family that's for sure.
and i'm a lucky blogger LOL because you are all so sweet.

Clippy, I just had to come and look at these pictures again, sorry! So, I figured I'd reply to your comment here :) That is the bar my family owns, and yes, it's where I spend many precious hours working my ASS off! It's now 5:25 AM Sunday morning, and I'm just getting home. Gee, I left my house at 4 pm yesterday, so that makes...13 1/2 hours!! When I look at it that way, it's sooooo not worth the money! :( I bet I'd make more if I actually ran a sex chat line, huh? tee hee!! ;-)i

As ever I am always envious that your grandchildren are so near to you, although I spoke to Odele on Christmas day I have soo missed out on her growing up years in the US and for some time to come she wont be able to remember me any way than I am at the mo although I did see her as a little girl. Enjoy your fabulous family and many thanks for sharing them with us. Love ya
