Final December Birthday

Today is the final birthday for our family for 2014.  We celebrate Daughter #1's 26th birthday!  She has been such a joy to our family and is fun to be around.  She has been so good about taking the younger nesters to her home to spend time with them.  She took Daughter #7 home with her yesterday since the teens are gone to a winter camp in Southern Indiana. 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAUGHTER! WE LOVE YOU AND ARE THANKFUL FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY! MAY YOUR DAY BE FILLED WITH BUBBLES AND BALLOONS! XO LOVE, DADDY AND MOMMA

December Birthday

Today we are celebrating Daughter #7's 10th birthday!  WOW!  How is it possible that all my children are now in the double digits?  Our tiny preemie is turning into a beautiful young lady.  She is a corker.  She comes up with some pretty witty sayings that have us laughing and repeating them at random!


HAPPY  BIRTHDAY DAUGHTER! YOU ARE SO PRECIOUS AND LOVED!! MAY YOUR DAY BE BLESSED IN EVERYWAY!! LOVE, DADDY AND MOMMA XOXO

Newest Family Photo of Son #3

Daughter-in-love #3 and Grandson U came home from the hospital today!  Son #6 and I took Big Brother K home to Mommy, Daddy, and Little Brother.  I was able to take some pictures of Grandson K meeting his new little brother for the first time!





My Favorite Pass Time

Okay, I LOVE to create cards.  Sometimes I CASE a card, sometimes my little ol' brain will come up with something by itself!  *I really love that when it happens.*  I enjoy sending out cards and letting someone know that I am thinking of them.  In an age of technology it seems that snail mail is used only for receiving junk mail and bills.  Gone, almost, are the days of receiving a card or letter from a friend/family.  Don't get me wrong, I enjoy my notes in my email box, and sweet notes left on my blog.  But sometimes it is nice to have a piece of mail to hold, read, and look at. 

I recently made a set of baby shower announcements.  Mom-to-be had an idea of the theme, but not an announcement.  So she went to her favorite site--Pinterest-- and started searching.  Below is the announcement we came up with.  This is not an original idea of mine, but I changed it up with texture, left off a couple of things and changed color for Mom.  She was pleased with the results!

Picture Time!!!

I love it when our family gets together.  We are noisy, well, down right loud at times.  The house if full of fun and chaos, but I love it.  It is on a rare occasion that we get to enjoy every one at the same time.  Hubby's birthday celebration was one of those rare occasions.  He turned 58 on the 13th of November and we had a dinner to celebrate the following Saturday!  This time instead of trying to get all of together in ONE photo I asked to at least get each family's picture.  I honestly think it is easier getting everyone in ONE photo than trying to round up each family. (I know it is certainly easier to post one picture!)





I'm Here...and Our Family Grows by Two Feet

That's right, our little family has grown...again!  Grandbaby #9, Grandson U, arrived today at 11:16 this morning weighing in at 9 pounds 10 ounces and 21 3/4 inches long!  Mighty big man!  He is Son #2 for Son and Daughter-in-love #3, and little brother to Grandson K.  Mama and Babe are doing well despite the hiccups in the road.  "Little" man is in NICU and will be there probably until tomorrow.  He had some breathing and oxygen issues they are trying to straighten out. 

As of yesterday, the hospitals in our county are not allowing visitors under the age of 18 in the hospital because of the flu, and the maternity unit is only allowing parents and grandparents.  Needless to say there are some very disappointed aunts and uncles, not to mention our Daughter-in-love who can not see Grandson K until she is released for the hospital on Friday.  

I tired posting some pictures we took from Hubby's birthday mid-November.  I don't know what happened, but as I posted pictu…
