Our pictoral review of 2011
So this was 2010.
As we look back with fondness on 2010, we look ahead with anticipation to what 2011 has in store for us.
Happy New Year, may it be full of joy & happiness.

Ok so we have left twitter to update our family website for a while but as it’s Christmas how about a pictorial catchup on the last two years.
This first post is our year in pictures that was 2009. It’s a little late in posting on here, but here is our photo diary from 2009. 2010 is on it’s way, which we will post after Christmas.
The children have been on half term this week and to begin the half term we took a quick hop across the channel to go and see Aunty Su, Uncle George, Hannah, Zoe and Ciaran, who we have not seen in over 3 years.
After a very calm crossing on the ferry and getting stuck in the rush hour traffic in Antwerp we made to the Belguim, Holland border where Su and the children were waiting for us.Â
Whilst we were there we spent time visiting Eindhoven, playing in this fantastic woodland playpark (perhaps Aunty Su can tell us the name of it) and swimming and playing in this superb indoor lagoon with lots of slides and wavepools. The children loved it and I think so did Mummy.Â She was desperate to get all theÂ girls on this one slide that tookÂ you into a big bowlÂ thatÂ you went round andÂ around in until you dropped out of the bottom into a deep pool.Â Â Elizabeth and Emily had to take aÂ swim test to show the lifeguards thatÂ they could swim before they were let on. They passed and had aÂ whale of a time.Â
It was absolutely great to see all the children playing together getting to know each other and having a great time.Â
We’ve put lots on pictures on to our gallery.Â If you need the password drop us an email.Â
The day after her birthday we all went into Southampton to go to the Bear Factory.Â Emily really wanted a new teddy bear for her birthday and so she got to make Snowy.Â
Already Emily is 4 years old and starts school this September.Â We had her school acceptance letter come through in the last couple of weeks confirming her place at the local primary school that Scott and Elizabeth go too.Â Do they really know what they are letting themselves in for with three Gilmours in the school?Â
Pictures from Emilys birthday have now been uploaded to the website gallery. Remember you need the password to access it.Â If you don’t have the password then please email or use the contact page to request it.
