Christmas Preparations 2011

Hello all,I am getting ready today for the Christmas Lunch.... this year it will be Our Family 5 and my Mum and Dad plus the Sister In Law. Normally it would be a very big day. I have got all the preparation done Turkey=tick, Ham=tick, pork=tick and my Mum has made the famous pudding with the old money once again. I am truly amazed at the people that I have seen shopping in our small town with trolleys laden full...anyone would think the shops were never going to be open I have posted another photo of Abbey while she was in Rehab at Epworth Richmond. We were very fortunate to have the Collingwood Football players visit her each fortnight.Early May

Merry Christmas All Andrea

Christmas 2011 Message

Wow what a big year I have had.
Our daughter Abbey had an accident on the 11th February. I am pleased to say that we are/have managed to all pull through this. I especially would like to thank my Family, Blogfriends for all your wonderful messages throughout the year.
Abbey is still not working but is now home with us in Cobden.
Abbey has Re-hab therapy twice a week at St John of God Warrnambool. We still make regular trips to Melbourne to see treating Drs.
Abbey still has a displaced pelvis which will be reviewed in February.
I am now backk at school working.
Abbey's ong term deficeits are unknown.... the Drs said 18months is the healing time.... The first words I really heard were very encouraging from the Drs she was young when she had the accident and even thought she has now a Brain Injury she will recover... :)
I enclose a pic of Abbey's 20th Birthday

Also as I post this message I have had tears in my eyes today with the generosity and thoughtfullness of my fellow bloggers.... ladies I am truly very thankful for your stitching I am just blown away THANK YOU THANK YOU just doesn't seem enough....
