A New Arrival



It seemed like it took for ever but much to the delight of all, our first granddaughter arrived.  Mom and Dad had picked the name of Kenzington (Kenzi for short) from the beginning. It seems like a big name for such a wee girl but she will grow into it.  Mom and Dad are over the moon except for her fussy times at night.  We remember that don’t we?   She has her nights and days mixed up.  I went to visit last week and just wanted to hold her the whole time.  As many of you with grandchildren can attest it is the best of times.

I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  Have a great week.  This week ushers in  spring of 2013 but we will have snow for the beginning of it. 

Happy St

Adorable! Congratulations!

Have a great new week.

CONGRATULATIONS! She is beautiful! My first granddaughter was born 5 weeks ago -- I am having the best time watching her grow.
Congratulations on your new Grand daughter. What a sweetheart. My daughter gave birth seven months ago to our first Grandson. That baby has blessed the entire family. He spent the night last night and my husband and I have a new toy.

Wishing you all the joy in the world wrapped in a pink bow.

Hi Val!

I was stopping by to say congratulations on your book but then saw this news. Oh, my, CONGRATULATIONS! I am so very happy for you and your family. I do love the name and she will definitely grow into it. I know, I have a name that is a mouthful and it was tough at times as a kid but am happy for it now.

Wishing you a wonderful week ahead with your precious new family member.

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
