2011

We don't really do New Year's Eve, and Christmas was a little... hectic. But on January 1st we made a concerted effort to have a lovely, memorable first meal of the year.

There was candlelight and conversation and lasagne in a heart shaped dish. There were babes in arms and mince pies made to a family recipes and wine brought from France wrapped in my father in law's socks.





















Happy 2011 Chickpeas. I hope that it's a beautiful year for you. I predict that ours will be... hectic.

  2. This has really touched my heart this morning. That last photograph explains visually why all the sleepless nights and stress of becoming first time parents are worth it = beautiful beautiful babies.

    Well done you, you are frankly amazing!

    I hope we meet soon xXx

  7. Oh they are so cute. I NEVER use the word angels but there you go. I love your photos but I have to admit I love your photos of your babies best of all. The cheeks. The sleepy eyes. I can almost smell their little baby smell.

    And you look beautiful yourself. Also your babies. And yes, your babies.

  9. You are an inspiration. I don;t have even one baby yet, and all I could do to ring in the new year was sit. Happy New Year to you and your beautiful family.

  14. I'm glad I didn't get to see this until just now: it's the soothing balm I needed after the day I've had.

    It's so good to *see* you two! Especially with the wee ones. Looks like the perfect New Year's.

    Ah your babies are just gorgeous. My own twin girls will be 30 this year and I know how hectic it is when they're babies (we also had a two year old), but it goes so fast. People used to say 'make the most of it as they're not bairns five minutes' and it's true. I wish I could go back - just for a day mind you:-).
