I take the Christmas decorations down, randomly, - 
just a few at a time so that Christmas can withdraw its outward trappings
 but hopefully the spirit will live on all through the year.

January is a birthday month for our family, - and probably for many other families too.

A lovely family celebration for my 90th 
(I still wince a little when I say that, but then get overcome by gratefulness
 for wonderful years and good health)

To make the day even more exciting and memorable and delightfully precious, 
the arrival of a beautiful new great-grandson.

A heart full of thankfulness!!!

So glad you had a lovely Birthday, 90 is such a milestone, and to have a new baby in the family born on that day makes it especially special.

Special beyond words!! That is absolutely the best birthday present any great-grandmother could have. How wonderful.

And it looks like your family gave you a fun birthday party as well.

Congratulations and Happy Birthday.
