    New addition to the family

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Well start the fireworks - its time for me to do the doting dad thing *:D

    Alli and I welcomed Ashton James into the family yesterday afternoon at 5:25pm.
    Mum and bub are doing well - Mum still a little tender after the ceaser which is to be expected.
    Dad is doing well and trying to get his head out of the clouds!!!!

    Its been over 5 years between drinks for us so hearing a newborn crying is VERY heartwrenching at the moment, but fortunately he has not been too bad thus far.

    Ill leave you with a pic of a gorgeous little boy who definately does NOT take after his daddy :)

    Best wishes to you both on a great occasion.
    Let us know if you find the instruction book the comes with them. Both of our models didnt have one, i guess the supplier ran out at that time.

    To celebrate your news, i think its time for me to have a drink (and not a coffee). *[smiley=beer.gif]

    Welcome little Ashton and a big conrats to Alli and Shannon... I thought his appearance must have been getting close as cafebiz seems like months ago already.

    Have you told him how much is big sister is going to annoy him and treat him like a a real live doll for the next dozen years?

    Enjoy the magic and I hope Ashton lets you guys get a few hours sleep sometime soon.

    Thankyou all for the warm wishes. It is an amazing thing to watch this whole life gig!!

    Trinity is loving being a big sister - she is doting and was instantly in love with her little "brudda".

    I will keep you guys posted.

    Shannon.

    Congratulations Shannon, and to Ali and Trinity as well, of course. Ashton looks beautiful - one thing with caesars, bub arrives with a lovely round head.
