Long time no blog

Just realised I haven't blogged in over a month.  So here is a summary of what we've been up to.

Isaac did his nativity play at the church with the other children in the reception class.  Much to my surprise (and the teacher's too, I think) he went on the stage with the other shepherds with a huge grin on his face and a lot of waving in my direction.  Timmy the sheep came too, which helped I think.

We remembered Elisha, born to soon a year before and Eleanor who would have been 7 at around that time too.
Christmas came and went with the usual excitement and chocolate consumption.
Followed quickly by Malachi's 2nd birthday.  Two years have gone by so quickly.
Then the snow.  Jeremiah and Malachi loved it, Isaac wasn't too sure.  Malachi, always wanting to join in with the big boys, insisted on going out in the snow and walking round the garden holding my hands.

This little one is just starting to walk.  Plodding along with an intense look of concentration on his faceand then falling on his bottom after a few steps.  He is getting there, slowly but surely.
