All the best to you and your wife,

Congratulations to you and your family, Chris! I kinda miss custom projects like yours. My most recent one just turned 20 years old, and I can't bounce him on my knee anymore without suffering damage (to me, not to him!).

Congratulations: Very nice pics and looks more relaxing than it may be at 4:00 a.m.

Very serene / pensive look on her face. Big Grin

Congratulations, Chris Happy

You're going to be hard pressed to find an addition to top this one.

. . . although she will add a whole new avenue of applications for the rest of your collection in about a decade and a half Wink

Congatulations, Chris! Great for you! Of course I'm with Steve: my "baby" just turned 21, and she's a bit too big for me to burp anymore... Sad

Good luck with the new brood! They grow up so fast that you stand there wondering where in the heck all the time went, so make every minute count. You'll both appreciate it years down the line. Happy

Cheers!

Gordon

Thank you all! Mom and the little one are doing well. Its a good thing I was able to invest in my collection this summer, because I doubt I'll have the time or means to do it now. With the promises of ponies for her and fire trucks (or if I have my way - his own 3/4 harness Happy ) for her 1 year old brother, I'll be hard pressed to pick up anything more soon!

Congratulations Chris!
It's seems to me that it'll take a few years to get the custom project battle-ready.Big Grin Now make sure your wife serves him Lions-milk, then he'll be ready in about four years. Wink

Cheers,
Henrik

Constant and true.

Congratulations! I know you must be proud...
it seems like only yesterday when my daughter was toddling around with a big ol' grin on her face... now she's all grown up and serves in the Army. How fast they grow... be sure to treasure every moment... it's worth being late to whatever you had planned to stop and smell the roses with your children.

Have 11 swords, 2 dirks, half a dozen tomahawks and 2 Jeeps - seem to be a magnet for more of all.
