belle of the ball!

We had a wonderful weekend in Twizel, very relaxing indeed, and the perfect way to end a nice quite lazy week.

My son, and his fiancee and their friends came up for the annual Twizel Ball - Yes! a Ball in tiny little country Twizel!!! The theme this year was "Glitz n Glamour", so glad rags on and off we went...

...group photo before we head out for the evening (L-R: French Chic, Rowing Boy, Moi, Rowing Man, Mark & Sera)
this is our Charlie's angels take off... (French Chic is really that tall!!)

and of course, then the guys had to do a fun shoot too!!

French Chic and Rowing boy - OOPS he's looking a bit blurry, and that is before we head out.

...and this is Karen and I taking a well deserved break from all that dancing... complete with the red vino stuff....

Sera catching up on sleep on the sofa Sunday morning! ... or was that afternoon?

BUT, before the ball, Rowing Boy and I managed to get in a full days skiing, just the two of us -WONDERFUL. ...now please don't take it that I didn't want the others there, but it was good to have some quite mother/son time (if you can call racing down the ski slopes quiet) - wonderful actually. Rowing man was on call for the weekend so needed to stay in Twizel, and French Chic doesn't ski, and Sera and Mark didn't arrive 'til late Saturday afternoon).

and look at these wonderful views from the ski field

absolutely perfect huh!!!

I hope you all had a fun weekend too!
