Happy New Year with a warm heart.

 Granny's heart is full and overflowing.
What a wonderful Christmas it could not have been better.
We had so many magical things happen in our family.
We had Granny's son and his wife, her grand daughter and her partner and little Summer staying from Queensland. So we were all together at Christmas. Granny feels as though she is in heaven.

Then while they were staying, Granny's grand daughter got engaged. How exciting that we could all share in the celebrations. 

Then their gorgeous daughter Summer turned one, 2 days after Christmas. We think she is the most beautiful child in the world.
We had a wonderful reunion with a family member that we had not seen for years. You don't know how Granny's heart sang.

We had a big family reunion with all the cousins and 2nd. cousins, for a picnic with the kookaburras.

Then of course Christmas day was so special.
Does all that sound as though it could happen in a few days?????

Granny still can't get over it.

Now because her son is still staying with us Granny wanted to make use of his muscles before he left. So this morning we took some of the decorations down, so he could put them back up in a high cupboard.
Granny's legs and muscles get a bit wobbly on the step ladder.

Here I am saying good bye to the tinsel for another year.

All of that news has made me hungry for peanut butter and honey on toast, after so much Christmas food.

Granny and I want to wish all our followers and every one who reads our post a very Happy New year, with exciting things happening to you.
Hugs Wilbur

Happy New Year every one.

My thought for the day.

"Grandparents are parents, but with more sleep, fewer rules and an endless supply of cookies"

  10. No doubt - you've enjoyed a wonderful and special Christmas filled with many happy moments, loads of joy and memories to treasure. And Wilbur - Granny should use this photo of you decorated with tinsel as a greeting card next year. And speaking of next year - best wishes for the new year, above all health and for you, dear friend, loads of honey and peanut butter toast! See you next year!

  11. What a wonderful way to spend Christmas Wilbur! There's nothing like family, especially those you don't get to see all time!

    If I may, here's an old Scottish Hogmanay blessing (that's what they call New Year in Scotland)...

    "May Hogmagog bless your house and all that belongs to it, cattle, kin and timbers. In meat, clothes and health of all therein, may fortune abound."

    It´s nice to hear you´ve had wonderful days with your family. Summer is such an cutie, but obviously she got this in the cradle, because her mother is a beauty too
