Meeting Newest Grand

We met our newest grandbaby!  Oh so sweet!  He is so tiny, even if he is now 9 pounds and 2 ounces!  This is a picture of Hubby and Grandson #3.  He was not a happy camper, Grandson-not Pawpaw!  (I have a CD of pictures of the last 2 days but my computer won't open it!  ERRRRRR!)

We babysat the two youngest grandbabies tonight while Sons #2 and 3 with their wives, Daugher #1 and her hubby, Daughter #2 and fiancee, and Daughter #3 went to "experience" hullabaloo of the NFL downtown tonight before the Super Bowl tomorrow.  Why in the world they would want to go was beyond me.  Everything is so expensive, it was cold and rainy, and massive crowds of people!  They were gone less than two hours--we live close enough that Hubby dropped them off and went back for them.  They said it was just a big party scene with a bunch of drunks.  "Maybe" if they went during the day, or a day or two ago it may have been different, but not tonight.  At least it gave us a chance to have grandbabies to cuddle, love and spoil-if there is such a thing.  So fun!

My Mother's Gentle Love

My Mother's Gentle Love
by Ron Hamilton
Who puts a band-aid on my knee?
Who holds me close so tenderly?
Who always sees the best in me?
There’s no one like mother.

Who always wipes my tears away?
Who tells me I’ll be great some day?
Who cares in such a gentle way?
There’s no one like mother.

My mother’s gentle love, my mother’s gentle love
Has taught me of God’s tender care, and turned my eyes above.
I’ll bless her all my days for all her gentle ways.
Oh, how I thank my Lord above for my mother’s gentle love.

Today is my mother's viewing, and tomorrow is her funeral.  The song above so much describes my mom.  She loved her four children so very much!  Before she had children, she was a nurse for "special care" babies~~"old" term for NICU.  Once she started having children she gave up her career to stay at home and raise her own babies. Thanks, Mom!

Thank you, Daddy, for allowing Mom to stay at home and raise us four children!



Life on the Homestead

Life is keeping us busy.  We have had grans over, a couple family dinners, running teens to friends homes or a church activity. We are helping out a family friend who fell and broke a wrist. Now summer is in full swing and warm and humid!  The air conditioner has been doing its best to keep the home comfortable.

Next week our school age kiddos will be leaving for church camp.   That leaves us with the three adult children who still live at home.  This will be a first for us!

This week we have welcomed two, new to us, vehicles and next week two new licensed drivers....

Well.....I have been trying to get some pictures to upload but am not succeeding! Eeerrrrrr!  I will try again later, when I am not so frustrated!  I will try to keep calm and carry on! ;)
