This blog is simply the story about my little life
with my sweet family that the Lord has blessed me with
and the day in, day out things that we do.
It basically is my online diary/photo album of our life.
I'm glad you're here!

We know what we're having!!!!

Last Thursday I saw my beautiful grandchild for the first time! It was love at first sight!!!
Let me back up a bit first. My son, Mackenzie, and his beautiful wife, Brittany, are having their first baby (and our first grandbaby) in October. I was so touched and so thrilled that they invited both me and Brittany's mother, Patti, to come along with them to the gender reveal ultrasound! First I met Brittany and Patti for lunch.
Then we headed over to the doctor's office and Brittany checked in.
Mackenzie worked that morning, so he met us at the doctor's.
Patti and I are so excited!!! This is my first grandchild and it's her third. :)
There's the baby! It's waving hello to us! What a darling profile it has!!! We were most thrilled though to learn that it's healthy and perfect! Praise the Lord!
What precious little feet! It has Mackenzie's feet, but Brittany's toes!
Can you believe these images? They are so clear and amazing. Here's the baby telling us that it's #1!!!!
We found out what it was, but had to keep it secret until the next night when they had a "Gender reveal" party with their friends.
All I can say is that I am sooooo excited!
Brittany's so amazed by her baby!
We had fun looking at the pictures and talking about this sweet baby!
What a fun and special day this was!!!! I will always treasure it in my heart!
Okay, time for the gender reveal party!
What a cute idea! They invited all of their friends over for cake and punch and to hear the big announcement!
What a cute table!!!
What will it be? A boy or a girl? They're not tell'n! haha!
The cake will reveal the answer! "He or she? Open to see!"
Dunt...dunt..da.daaa....I see blue frosting!!!!
IT'S A BOY!!!!!
They are so happy and so proud!!!
Brittany put these two photos together from when they were both first born. How can he NOT be adorable when he's going to be a mix of these two cuties? Brittany is so beautiful and peaceful, what a darling baby she was. Mackenzie's expression looks like he's not a happy camper, but the truth is he wasn't, I pushed for 2-1/2 hours to get him out and he was exhausted. Poor little guy. He was such an adorable baby though, oh honey!
I am so thankful for this new little life! I praise God for this sweet little baby boy. I pray that he will always love and serve the Lord. I pray that God will give Mackenzie and Brittany Godly wisdom, direction, guidance and discernment as they raise this young man. I cannot wait to meet my little grandson face to face and to whisper in his ear how much grandma loves him!

"For You formed my inward parts; You knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are Your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in Your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them." Psalm 139:13-16

Hugs, Sharon
