To help us celebrate New Year Rich’s Mum & Dad have come down from Northland to spend a couple of days with us. Yesterday we had both of them as well as my parents, Liz & Myf round to our house for a tasty lunch of jacket potatoes. Myf got her first look at Sam and seemed to approve of her newest cousin. Sam continued to be on best behavour and had all the adults assembled completely charmed.
After my family had headed off home Rich and I prepared for a quiet New Year staying in. We had some lovely Marks & Spencer party food with his parents and toasted the New Year with them a little earlier as they had to get back before the buses stopped running. We then managed to stay up until just gone midnight and shared the last of the champagne between us.
2008 has been a fantastic year for us and we really couldn’t have asked for anything more. We’ve bought our first home, had a sucessful pregnancy and now have the most lovely son imaginable. Thanks to all our friends and family for helping us through this very busy year – we wish you all the best for 2009 and hope that it is a happy year for all of you.
