FRESH OUT OF THE OVEN


Introducing our newest grandniece Olive. She was born at 7:22 AM today weighing in at 7 lbs 13 oz. and is 20" long. The doctor was planning to induce Christy's labor at 7:30 this morning, but Olive, being an Aquarius, decided to do it her own way in her own time.
The other exciting events or our day include ice, ice baby. Here it comes and we are safely inside while we await news from all our commuting children who have to get out in this mess. I just threw out scraps for the chickens and they hit the back patio and looked like bowling balls as they slid across the frozen cement.
I just hope my niece and grandniece get to stay inside, nice and warm, while all the weather blows over.

  1. Oh my what a cute little baby girl. I just love them when they are new babies. That doesn't make me want to have one though! I'm glad were getting snow and not ice. I hate icy roads.
