The New Year!

This year is proving to be very busy already. With the arrival of the newest member of our family and the phone calls to me with reports of her progress from my son to cleaning up the remnants of Christmas I haven't had much time to get to my computer.

Hopefully things will return to normal now. Although we do have another grandchild due anytime now. But that one will be born in Kentucky, a little boy named Cayden, and I won't get to go and hold him until later in the year. And one more grandchild that we don't know the sex of as yet that will be born in late May or early June. That will give us a total of 14 grandchildren......actually 15 because I still consider Owen, who was still born, as a grandchild too.

I have to go shortly to run some errands and then back home to watch my precious 1 year old grandson while Mom runs her errands.

I am so glad that I am able to enjoy my grandchildren. Both of my parents passed away when they were 49 years old and never saw any of their grandchildren. How I wish they could have gotten to know their grandchildren. Maybe that is why I enjoy spending as much time as I can with mine. I want to make memories with my grandchildren that they can carry with them through life. My children missed out on those memories with their grandparents and I think it is an important part of their heritage.

Enough looking back.......it is a new year and we must look ahead!

Yes, thanks for watching Drew. I think I need you on Monday at 2:45 too. ????

It is a great thing that you are providing memories for your grandchildren. I wasn't lucky enough to meet my grandparents and have always thought that they play a big part in a child's life.

Good for you being blessed with so many cuties.

I am so glad I had the chance to know my grandma. She passed on when I was 10, and mostly what I remember of her is softness and hugs.
