Citizenship - tick!

It's done.  And been a long time coming.  Thanks for cheering me on along the way!

Glad to be in the same club as so many of you. 

You got to admit - the baby staring at the Queen is pretty priceless!

Congrats, again!  The photo is brilliant!  Your kids look like they tolerated it pretty well.  I'm glad it was a good experience for you.  Eee!  I can't wait 'til my turn!

(Also, your husband is a giant among men, or you're really small.  But I'm going with he's a giant.)

He's 6'6".  I'm 5'2".  We look ridiculous together....

Oh well, will be fun to see where our kids land.  Paediatrician suspects they'll be tall like Daddy.

Me without heels and him...

Congratulations!! I bet it feels amazing to be done with all this! And what a lovely family!

On a funny note, my husband is also 6'6"! I'm 5'4" so only slightly less ridiculous ;) All 3 of our kids have taken after him, even our little girl.

I'm 4'10" on a good day.  My husband won't tell me his height (I suspect it's because he doesn't know it).  He's not 6'6", but compared to me, he's Way Up There.  Definitely taller than 6'... I think he's somewhere between 6'1" and 6'2".  We look equally ridiculous together.  :)
