A New Grand-daughter!!

Hello my crafty friends, I have no crafty projects that I've made today but I have some precious photos to share with you and some beautiful cards to share as well that were sent to us. First off we are grandparents again!!! Our sweet little girl came into this world on St. Valentine's Day while a snow storm was raging outside. Our DIL went into the hospital a few days early with some minor complications so was there before the snow hit thank goodness. Would have hated to see them have to get to the hospital in a snow storm as they got 28 inches there. Because mommy was having some problems the high risk doctor decided to induce her early. So our little girl is only 5 lbs 13 oz, but she is perfect!!! No problems with her lungs or anything. And she is as sweet as she can be!! Here she is, isn't she just adorable?!! So precious! We got down to see her yesterday. They live just across the state line from us. 

Next I have to show you my beautiful family, including all the DIL's and all the grands but two. Sadly we don't get to see then or even know where they are. I am hoping one day they will want to know us and will come find us on their own. Here is the rest of my family and yes there is a lot of us! lol This was taken at Christmas, everyone one came home to check on how dad was doing with his chemo and such. 

This pic is one that hubby wanted to recreate. We have a family pic of us and our youngest was probably only 3 at the time. So we hung a blue blanket and everyone one in the same spots as the original picture except for our youngest, he is just to big to sit on my lap anymore! lol Our sweet DIL used her nice camera to take these pictures for us. Here are my guys:

Now I have to share some cards with you. In the mail we got this sweet card. It was mailed to Grandma and Papaw, yep you guessed it. One of our sweet grand-daughters mailed us a Valentine!

This next Valentine came from my sweet Momma Mary. She is an awesome Copic color-er and she makes some of the most beautiful cards. You really need to go check out her blog!! Oh how I love her! 

Thanks for stopping by today and sharing in our joy! I hope you are having a great Sunday where ever you are and that you are toasty warm! Spring is just around the corner! The days are getting longer and we even saw a robin! So I know it is coming now! lol Crafty hugs, Brenda

Congratulations on your new granddaughter. She is a cutie. What a lovely family you have. Isn't it sweet to get a card from your granddaughter.

Yep, she is definitely a sweet little angel. Such a pretty expression and she really looks 'all finished' off, not like a newborn at all. SOmetimes their noses can look squashed, and like that. She's perfect all right. Loved seeing the pictures of all your family too. Your boys look like such nice young men, and you can be proud of such a large & loving family. TFS all your happiness with us. Oh yes, loved the Grands' pretty valentine card too. Did you teach them how to do this? It's so sweet of them, and looks like crafting started real early here. Hugs

This was a really cool and heartwarming post, Brenda! Congratulations on the new little BEAUTIFUL granddaughter! I'm so glad mom was in the hospital with that ridiculous amount of snow you have gotten there!

And the family pictures are the best. Gosh, I can't even imagine how you are sane after raising six boys! Seriously. But there they are, all grown, all handsome, and I'm sure, all well-mannered and responsible young adults. How proud you must be! That recreated photo of the eight of us is priceless!

I hope you've seen the last of snow for a while! And I pray things are going well with hubby's treatment. Hugs, Darnell
