At Christmas, what could be a better present than a new addition to the family?

Unto us a grandson is born

Our son Toby and his wife Amy, having married in April 2014, have given birth to their firstborn, a beautiful grandson for us, just in time for Christmas.

Weighing in at a fine 3.94 kgs, he was back home within a few days to his newly decorated nursery.

Other members of the family

Nugget and Twiglet, Toby and Amy’s two minatiure daschunds, have a ‘brother’.

A Happy Christmas indeed

What a brilliant way to celebrate Christmas. Unto us a (grand) child is born!

So Lin and I are now responsible for four sons, and between them and their wives, five gorgeous grandchildren. Wow.

Congratulations to Toby and Amy!

Happy days.

    Congratulations to all concerned, and a happy Christmas indeed.

    You get the children you deserve, but your grandchildres are the real measure of your success.

    Enjoy your day.
