A New Great Grandson for holtieshouse.

Hey world, want to hear some good news, I have another
Great Grandson, Matthew and Rhianna have a brand new
brother for Phoenix Lyle his name is Ezra Storm.

All involved are doing well, especially Grandma, she is over
the moon even though she would have preferred a girl this

I don’t know what happened to all the old names like Tom,
Bill, Fred, Harry, etc. but I guess we will get used to Ezra.

The day started well here in Oz, at almost the same time that
Ezra arrived the two miners who had been trapped
underground in Tasmania were brought to the surface

I’d better post this now before Jacqui hits the cyber waves with
the same news, I want the braggin’ rights for the

That is so exciting ... congratulations Great Grandpa. Hope mum and bubs are doing well.

Isn't it wonderful new about the miners in Tassie. I must admit, I was awake, watching, waiting in anticipation. It was real emotional TV.

Take care, Meow

Interesting adage--"she is over the moon." I've heard that phrase said in similar circumstances (pregnancy) in the movie set in Ireland, Waking Ned Devine. But I don't believe it's common here in the U.S.

OK you win, but remember you are two hours ahead of us and our daughter was kind enough not to wake me till 7.45am.

Like you find the names a tad different, but we've gotten used to Phoenix so same should happen with Ezra. Congratulations too.

Jacqui said...

I just went back and checked the time and I posted at 8.46am so I beat you by 1 minute, so guess I won after all!

Congratulations on the blessed event! Nothin sweeter in the world than a new baby. I had no idea you were old enough to be a great-grandpa.
