A quick holiday and photo update…
Now that the pixels have been processed, here’s our Christmas Day family photo!
So, what’s new with us? We’ve just returned from a nice break up on the Kapiti Coast, staying with Jenny, Brendon and their little Oliver – where both the weather and Santa were kind to us all!
As for the kids, with outstanding timing for Christmas, Amy (7.5 weeks) has started smiling at us big time – sooo cute! Meanwhile, Matthew (almost 2 years 5 months) continues to do everything at full speed and (amazingly for me) can now read numbers between 1-10 when shown at random – stay tuned for a vid of that one!
Looking back, it’s hard to believe 2008 is almost done! What a year. I started a new role at MetService in the Severe Weather section. Louise retired (again) for the arrival of our second child – Amy – who joined us within 45 minutes of arriving at the hospital! Three months earlier, Matthew turned two, and he is now Mr Independant(!) but also very helpful, a little chatterbox and a delight to talk to and play with. 🙂
So, if I don’t see you in the near future – Happy New Years! (a little early, but hey) Roll on ’09 with lots more fun…
