This year could be interesting for the voodoopenguin clan

A few weeks before Christmas we were talking with our kids and their spouses about our 40th wedding anniversary in July. Over the years we have had many big family celebrations but this time Sarah and I put forward the idea that just the six of us could go away for a few days, self catering cottage or the like. Eldest blessing was a bit wary of this which puzzled us but a week or so later they announce they are expecting, due in June. OK, going away together will be put on hold but then fast forward about three weeks and youngest blessing says "Snap!". The sisters are about 5 weeks apart so next summer, as long as everything goes well it will be first grandchild then 40th anniversary then second grandchild. Both have had their 12 week scan and so far so good.

Who's a happy bunny penguin?

That is great news! If you stay close to grandkids, the best part of your life is yet to come. They will light up your life, and you can make their life so much better.

My parents had a wonderful relationship with my kids. I never appreciated grandparents until I had children. It makes everyone stronger.

She's out of the group. She had a melt down about her cats peeing all over the place, and was asked to move out of the shared house. We don't talk about her any more.

Then I guess you can post a pic.

Congrats, Paul! We would love to be in the same boat but nothing yet.
