Our new Great Neice

Good evening ,

I hope everyone has had a lovely Christmas, we have had a very busy time. It was our wedding anniversary on the 22nd December , we have been married 29 years we had a lovely day but the best present was our niece had a baby girl at 1.30 am on that day. She is going to be called Meisha and weighed 6lbs 1oz.
We had a lovely Christmas day at my brother and sil home with their 3 children, then boxing day they came to us along with my brothers 2 older children who now both have babies of their own,so we had a house full,it was a lovely day a little crowded with us all and our next door neighbour and wife joined us. Today we have just had a leisurely tidy up trying to put things away and just generally tidy up .
