Beautiful Baby

I finally got to go back to WV to meet my first grandbaby.  I was so excited I could hardly contain myself! I felt like a preschooler....lol The drive to West Virginia was so nice.....relaxing and beautiful.  I got to spend some very special quality time with my mother as well.  She ventured with me to meet my granddaughter (her GREAT granddaughter) for the first time.
It truly was hard to contain my emotion but I managed.  She is soooooo beautiful!!! She was much tinier in person than in all of the pics.  Once she was placed in my arms, she didn't come out unless I was going back to mom's. 

I had a terrific time with my son and his new family.  His fiance' also has a 2 year old son and it was so heartwarming to hear him call me grandma as well.  I took them shopping, to get their first family photo done, and even picked out little Aria's dress :o).  I can't say that I held back any....lol  I LOVE being a grandmother!!! It is such a wonderful feeling that is indescribable. 

I got to babysit the kids one Saturday night and of course, my little grandson fell asleep within 20 minutes in my lap and I held little Aria the entire time.  I just couldn't put her down since I am not there everyday to see her.  I had to get my time in. 

My visit with my mom was the most relaxing family visit I have had in a very long time.  We went on evening banana split runs and watched lots of Baggage until 2 am....lol  Oh, and most importantly.....played CANDY CRUSH!!!

Well, it's getting ready to storm here in good ol' Mayberry.  Much love to all!

First family photo :o)

Siesta Scripture Verses.....I'm Finally Catching Up!

Even though I haven't blogged my memory verses lately, I have still been incorporating them into my daily life.  It amazes me at how quickly life can get busy.  And then I get into moods where I know I need to blog, but have so much on my mind that I decide to just stay clear of it.  Every facet of my life seems to be being stretched, tied and knotted down.  So, here are the verses I had chosen to place in my memory.  Hope you all are still working hard on learning God's Word as well. 

Siesta Verse 10- "O Sovereign Lord, You are God! Your words are trustworthy and you have promised these good things to your servant."  2 Samuel 7:28 NLT

Siesta Verse 11- "Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything.  Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all he has done."  Phillipians 4:6 NLT

And my current verse #12- "Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.  See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting."  Psalm 139:23-24
