After lunch at Wagaya, our families came back to our house to visit – a first time for my family from Perth!
In addition, our families took that opportunity to give us amazing, generous, graduation gifts – thank you so very much!
My mom gave us our gifts from my grandparents first – as they are the oldest and couldn’t attend in person – thank you Ong Ba Ngoai! We will put the money towards our future and wedding planning!
I received a nice watch and card from Ong Ba Ba
Thank you to Ong Ba Ut for their generous gifts – we will put it towards our relocation and setting up a new life in Rockhampton!
A very special gift to Michael from his parents, a laminated card that his mom has kept safely for many years
My mom is the best, as always!
With the best card 😛
She gave us each a Pilot retractable fountain pen
Michael also got a beautiful dark purple DKNY tie from my mom, and I received 2 Pandora beads – thank you mom!
Thank you to Di Loan for your lottery tickets! We were really hoping to win, but alas!
Also a very special thank you to Ong Ba Hai (Ong Ba Ut’s best friends) and Nghiem for sending me cards and gifts!
Some family photos
I also want to share the graduation gifts from Michael’s family! We received them on December 11, 2014, during our beach getaway at Noosa with his family 🙂
Aunt Patsy and Uncle Dan gave us a generous gift to treat ourselves out to a celebratory graduation dinner – thank you! It was really too bad that our graduation date was changed to a week later this year compared to previous years. Unfortunately, they couldn’t attend but I’m sure they had a great time on their cruise!
Uncle Rick and Aunt Wendy gave us the cutest Christmas ornaments. They definitely went on our tree and will be on our tree every year!
Uncle Jim and Aunt Brenda gave us the novel “Breathless” written by Dr Todd – a thoracic surgeon who performed many of Canada’s early lung transplant operations.
Thank you so much to everyone for all your love, gifts, and kind words! Treasured forever!
