The Godfather

Nope, this is not the tale of a gruff spoken Mafioso, who leaves equine presents in your bed, this is the tale of my kiddos Godpapa. They love him to bits and tomorrow is his birthday. So today we had a little get together to celebrate the man. Here's the card I whipped up for him and a few pics from our celebrations.


My brother-in-law has been having trouble sleeping of late and on top of this, has had a nasty case of Pertussis - Whooping Cough. So what he really needs is to be well again and then to have some serious R&R. He's a surfer, though hasn't had a chance to do much of that lately. I think it's so easy in life to get caught up in the nine to five, so his present was wrapped with this message on it.

Our pressie hopefully will help him in that direction as it had a little something to get him surfing again. It's the heart of Winter here right now though, so perhaps he'll wait 'til it's a bit warmer before he ventures out. Although, die-hard surfer, he'll probably just don a wet-suit!

Here's the man opening his card and my Georgie sharing the birthday fun.
