New Year - New Beginnings

Our Fisher Boy has found some new reptiles.  Don't you love his smile. He never stops going and going.  Sometimes he has night terrors and I wonder if it is his little brain just doesn't want to stop.  He is so funny how he talks and what he says.  He makes us all laugh.
 
 
Miss Mabel turned 7.  Say it isn't so.  She is growing up way to fast.  She had her first real birthday party with friends. It was at a place called Glitter, Girls and Grace.  They all got their hair done, nails polished, makeup, made a scrapbook page, had a tea party, and made lip gloss.  Then they all got to walk the runway. 
 
The little girls all wanted to see her big brother walk the runway. He wasn't as shy as this picture shows.  He told me awhile back he wanted to be a model.  I asked why and he said that all you have to do is stand there and make a lot of money.
 
We are in basketball season now.  Only 3 of the 4 that live here are playing this year.  They all play on the week-end.

Well, I have something to tell you.  We are going to be grandparents again.  I'm excited for there to be a new baby.  I must also say, I have concerns.  This is our youngest and his girlfriend.  She has a 10 year old son that is autistic.  She has done well with him.  Someone asked me how I felt about this whole situation.  I said that I sometimes just want to cry.  I had so many things that they could use and I got rid of all of it when we moved.  So there will be lots of prayers .  The baby won't be here til August  so we will have some time to get ready.

So here is to a new year and new beginnings.

Your grandchildren are beautiful. Isn't it amazing how quickly they grow up? My youngest grandchild (Jazzy) turned sixteen today. Not so long ago, she was just a little girl, sitting on the porch swing, trying to play a trombone that was bigger than she was.

I think it's wonderful that you have a new grandbaby on the way. They are so very precious. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

What a great idea for a party! It reminds me of a special birthday party my big girl had when she turned 7, which of course feels like yesterday.
