She is finally here....


After what seems like an eternity, my new granddaughter Scarlett Grace made a quite easily entrance into the world on May 2nd. She weighed 7 lbs. 15 oz. and was 19 3/4" long. Mama had quite an ordeal getting her here. Because of blood pressure problems my daughter was hospitalized over 4 weeks before Scarlett was born. Daddy works 24 hour shifts, goes to school and has clinicals to do, so Na-na (that's me) took care of the boys, who are 3 and 5 and FULL of energy...Na-na is not! I had little time to do anything else. I now know why God give us our babies when we are young! I also have a whole new respect for those grandma's out there that are raising their grandchildren for what ever the reason may be. They are also in my prayers!


Sion the 3 year old is not sure what to think about his new little sister. Seth on the other hand absolutely LOVES his little sister. He will sit and hold her on the couch for long periods of time. He talks to her and sings to her.

I have had little time to do any scrapbooking over the last couple of months. Before my daughter ended up in the hospital, I did participate in an ATC Scripture swap and recipe card swap in my Friends That Scrap yahoo group. The topic for the ATC swap was "honey".

I also wanted to share with you some more of my "Jams" that I have participated in over the last couple of months. This is from another one of my yahoo groups called ATC Jams Galore...I absolutely love doing these! I haven't "jammed" in a while, so I am anxious to get back to to it!

Well, thanks for stopping by. Hopefully I will have some more soon to share with you as things settle back down around here.
