Excitement and Anticipation

For the first time ever I got my son-in-law to take a photo of the
three generations of girls
a natural photo - no preening or even looking in a mirror beforehand!  
I did not think of that until afterwards!



The excitement and anticipation of opening presents for the young ones on Boxing Day


What is this?
I did not get to see Oliver's expression when he unwrapped his new bicycle on Christmas Day

It would seem that Jane is the focus of attention. How nice to have such a lovely photo of the three of you. Special, special indeed.

How cute Bekah is to watch with such anticipation as her brother opens his present!

I loved seeing you three together. I think you and your daughter are so alike in looks.
We had 4 generations of men on my husband's side. My husband, his two sons, one son's two sons. and their 2 baby sons. My husband was proud as a peacock and it made for a wonderful picture.
Glad to hear that your Christmas was nice...Balisha
