Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, my first grandchild.....
born at 4.19 a.m. (Australian time) 25th December 2015
Weighing at 2.752 gm at birth.
It was a natural birth and both mother and baby are doing fine.
A Christmas gift from the hospital...
Baby wrapped in a swaddle- God's perfect gift for us.
Our impromptu Christmas Dinner... Pumpkin, Carrot and Corn soup
It's a double celebration, so bring out the champagne... thank you, Kit (my nephew) for the Moet..
Bow tie pasta aglio e olio cooked by Esther.... except for a small blunder when she threw the pasta into my pumpkin soup to boil...hahaha. Luckily rescued just in time. The pasta was flavourful and not too overpowering of garlic taste.
Devilled Eggs topped with cheese and crispy bacons bits cooked by Sarah....Delightful!
Bought this piece of glazed ham when my sister called that she was coming for dinner- she love ham! Actually no need to do much, but I made a cranberry/orange sauce to serve with the ham as well to to glaze it.
Roasted Chicken thighs with herbs and honey.
Dessert- one of Sarah's pavlova.
What a sweet ending for a wondrous day!
