Recent Family Goings-On

I realize it's been a while since I've updated you on what's been going on in my family recently.

First of all, I have some exciting news to share. You may have seen the photo I posted in my last post. Well, it has a meaning.

My family is very excited about the fact that we're going to welcome another little baby brother or sister into our family this year!! :D

Mum and Dad told us on Christmas Day and we were all very thrilled, as you can imagine!!!

Our new sibling will be here towards the end of August 2016. This will be my tenth sibling - the eleventh child to join our family. Exciting times!


Here are a few recent photos of some of us.

Two beautiful sisters - Lydia and Danella

And another beautiful sister - Miss Jana! She has the cutest facial expressions. 

This is a handsome young man. Jacob is 5 now. (Can you believe it?)

Two more handsome young men - Jonathan and Benjamin

Here are my fantastic and very youthful-looking parents. (Don't you agree?)

We went to a model railway on Sunday afternoon. It was good fun. The younger children especially enjoyed riding on the train.

Some of the scenery

There was a playground as well...

...and a boat dock for model boats. It was a really nice afternoon outing.

Danella and Sophie went on a three day cycle trip for their Duke of Edinburgh awards. Here's Sophie with her bike.

Looks like they had fun! :)

What do you think - do you reckon our new baby will be a sister or a brother? :)

PS. Going to be away with my family for the next week or so over on the West Coast. Have a great week! Got a few posts scheduled. :)


  1. Congrats!! I think it'll be a girl. ;) Are you all talking about names now? ;)

    1. We've talked about a few names, although Mum and Dad will make the decision of course.

  2. Wow! A new sibling! Yeah!
    What, pray tell, is a Duke of Edinburgh award? Would love to know! Blessings Bonnie

    1. It's an award for young people where they have to complete certain components, I think a physical section, a community service section, skill learning section and then an outdoor expedition- weekend tramp or cycle trip or something like that. It's quite good! More info here.

  3. Congratulations to your family!! That must be so exciting.
    Thank you for sharing the pictures. :)
