My best Christmas present

Not long after they arrived on Wednesday Elder Son handed Husband a card addressed to Mum & Dad. Husband said, 'Mum usually opens Christmas cards,' but proceeded to open it as I was looking over his shoulder.

It was a plain white card with a teddy on it. 'Hm,' I thought, 'that's an unusual Christmas card.' Inside was a slightly blurry black and white photo. 'That's a ... BABY!!! Waaaaaahhhhh!!!!'

Much hugging and congratulating followed. Baby is due in June.

I am so happy I fear I could burst!

Oooooh! Congrats, Granny.

It's early on yet, but do tell us if it's a boy or a girl as soon as you know.

Er, I bet I didn't have to say that.

How lovely! There's nothing nicer than grandkids! What a perfect way for Elder Son to announce the news.
I don't have to wish you a happy Christmas, do I?
