This weekend we got together with family and celebrated Dave’s Nan (and our kids Great Nanny Critten!)’s 90th birthday.  My kids have been so lucky to grow up having three Great Grandparents, especially ones as  lovely and special as they have!  Here are some photos of the family celebration:

It was a surprise party so she had quite a shock when she arrived and saw everybody!  It was lovely to see so many of her sons, daughters, grandchildren and great grandchildren altogether in the same room.

I’m so pleased that I managed to take this photo!  My four kids with their Dad, Uncle, Granny, Grampy, Great Grampy Morris,  Great Nanny Critten and Great Granny Morris.  I would also love to have a photo of all the kids with myself, Dave, Granny, Grampy, all “the greats” and my mum, Nanny (Evans), as that would be the kids and all their living ancestors together which would be a very special photo to treasure.  I love this one too.

It had been a long day for Nan and the time came for her to return to her home so we all said our goodbyes – there was a long queue and it took quite a while!

Goodbye hugs with Caitlyn.  Nanny Critten has always loved cwtches, especially with the newborns of the family while swaddled in one of her crochet cwtch shawls.  She has a huge heart full of love for all her family.

We hope Nanny Critten had a lovely day celebrating her 90th birthday.  Her smile was radiant throughout the party.  It was so lovely to see family from afar and to watch all the kids play so well together.  I hope we get to do it again soon!
