WELCOME TO THE WORLD!!

Yesterday my oldest daughter, Cara, and I took a very special trip. This trip only took about 1/2 hour in time, but this was an important occasion.

This was the official meeting of my first "grandchild". No, he's
really not my grandchild, but I've known the mother of this baby since she was three years old. We used to live next door to her, and she and both of my daughters became instant friends and have remained so some 20 years later.

His "true" grandmother passed away this summer. So, I have been adopted as "Grandma".

And here is his introduction to the world:


WELCOME PAYTON EDWARD!!

BORN DECEMBER 10, 2008

8 POUNDS 3 OU
NCES


Pretty cute, my first "grandchild"--don't you think?

Tomorrow night is my Small Group CHRISTmas party, so I have some food to prepare today for this, as well as finishing my friend Linda's birthday present for tomorrow. Busy day!!

I'll have some pictures to share of both of these festivities on Tuesday.

In the meantime, if you would--stop over at "The Power of Your Love" and welcome a very special child to our world!! This child is a King, and He can't wait to make your acquaintance!!

Have a wonderful day!!

Congratulations! He is a precious little one. God did REAL GOOD when He invented grandkids. :) My second grandaughter was born on the same day!

God Bless you and yours as you celebrate the Birth of our King!
