From 3 to 5

Come Christmas Day we should have not ONE but TWO new babies in our family

My daughter Amy and her husband Ryan are expecting their second child on 30th November
Riley will love having a baby in the family
Funny kid thinks you go to Target to get a baby sister, there will be trouble if it's a brother cos he says he wants to get a baby sister at Target
Amy is 12 weeks, so this is where she's at
My son Daniel and his fiance Candice are also expecting
They are due 21st December


Candice is 9 weeks


Daniel and Candice have been back living with us since late October waiting for their house to be built. They hope to move in next month but I don't think it will be ready by then. Hope it's done before the baby arrives

If I thought I was busy with 3 grandchildren I can only imagine the craziness of 5.

Nothing like new babies!
My Mum has just turned 62 and still shakes her head in amazement that she has 19 grandkids!

Little wonder she's never keen to babysit!
