We love this guy, don't we...
... especially when he smiles ;)
So, apparently is was a Big Birthday for Big Brother yesterday.
And here are the seven siblings.
The Builder is looking positively small in this photo. Big Brother is looking a bundle of laughs. Baby Brother is just looking handsome as ever. ;)
After our meal, we came back home where the nieces and nephews were waiting for their favourite uncle.
Here they are surrounding him. They think they're in line to be in his will.
We know they're in line to be looking after him in his old age.
Big Brother surprised us by indicating he would make a speech. Turned out, however, that he'd taken the wrong speech along. This one began: 'On behalf of my wife and I......'. Aye, it would appear that he can fold that one away carefully for another wee while.
(Unless there's something we don't know...)
(Oh, and you didn't believe the whole BB-was-gonna-make-a-speech thing, did you? If you did, you really don't know this guy.)
One of our nieces decorated this cake for him. Don't you love it... sheep, fencing, feeding troughs (even the obligatory sheep poo on the grass!). Yep, this made him feel right at home.
Here's Katie and Catherine's flock of Blackface sheep, again made in honour of the Right Honourable BB.
His siblings' main present to him was this fabulous camera.
And we got this painting of Bruce and John Wayne made for him.
