A couple of days before Christmas, I met up with my parents, two of my brothers and my brother's family. We all had a lovely day celebrating together, and while we were all together, we took the opportunity to get some photographs of us all, including a picture of all the grandchildren with their grandparents and some of Nathan and Beki with their latest addition. The last time we did this was two years ago, and my parents have welcomed three grandchildren since then, including Nathan and Beki's youngest. It was beautiful chaos, as life often is with small children. I hope you can see everyone's personalities in these portraits as I can, and I'm grateful to everyone for having braved the cold of the North East of England.
