Hubby and Steph threw me a party to officially welcome me to Canada.
There was a lot of food, Canadian flags, friends (old and new) and one Australian flag.
Hubby and I were thrilled to see so many of our new friends.
A big thank you to everyone who drove out to our neck of the woods to help celebrate.
Jacqui and Sean, Melissa and Jonny, Laura and Dan, Ulrich, Jeanette, Maria and Julia, Steph and Scott, Manfred and Ulrich, Alecia, Kyla, Sophia and Clara, Chris, Andrea and Alex, Kim, Joanna and Deka, Michelle, John, Mark and Julie, Tom and Donna, Barb and Stew and of course Hubby.
I apologise if I missed anyone.
I almost forgot. There was cake. Two cakes. Steph provided the first cake.....
