Birthday #29

Today is our oldest son's twenty-ninth birthday!  Wow!  Twenty-nine!  I can remember when I gave birth to our 9# 3oz baby boy WITHOUT pain meds!  His labor was a total of eight hours from the time my water broke, IN PUBLIC, to his first breath!  (actually I felt a little cheated, all the anticipation of waiting for this little human to come into my life and BAM! over in eight hours!  and he was my longest labor!)


We love you so much!
<3 Momma and Daddy


  1. Good morning (barely), Christy :) Just stopping in to greet you and pray you have a wonderful week!! You all have a lot of Birthdays :) Hugs!

  2. I wish my first one had "only" been 8 hours! lol 33 hours from water pop to her appearance...ugh! But I think everyone in our Lamaze class agreed that every minute was worth it! Can you believe our oldest are 29? Are you having as difficult a time with it as I am? I survived turning 50, but them turning 29 is just a bit too much! I can't imagine next year... :-0

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!

Graduation 2017 Post

Finally, here are pictures from Son #6 and Daughter #5's graduation.  I finally figured out what I was doing wrong downloading pictures!!

They Said "I Do" and Here We Grow Again!!

"I do!"  Lovely words.  Son #4 and Bride were married on the 31st of March.  After weeks of planning they are finally married and home from their honeymoon!  (pictures to follow soon)   We are pleased to have a new daughter in the family!

Speaking of new...yes, a new babe is growing...Daughter #1 and Son-in-love #1 are expecting their second child in the fall!  Grandson E told us!  At first we just looked at him, dead silence in the room, and looked at his momma...and she was smiling!  YAY!  Our "grand" total will be 11 come fall!!!!!!

Soon we will meet Granddaughter E...!  Eight weeks until her due date...but will probably meet her in the next few weeks!  Everyday in the womb is a day of victory!

That's all for now!  I have had to update this about 3 times!  It has been in my "save" for several weeks!  As soon as I get a few minutes of free time I will be back!
