Baby Jaylynn is here!

I realized yesterday that I hadn't let you all know that Jaylynn joined our family on Monday. She weighs 8 lb 1 oz and is 20 inches long. Mom, Dad and Baby J are doing well.

We think she's a keeper for sure!
We praise God for Blessing us with two wonderful Grandchildren in the last 5 months.

Still no GrandbabyWell Shawna's due date came and went on the 11th and we still have no granddaughter. I talked with her a few minutes ago, she went to the doctor earlier today and is now dilated to 4. I told her at this rate she wouldn't go into labor and the baby would just fall out! If she doesn't have Jaylynn by Monday they will induce her Monday morning. Please keep them in your prayers. Of course we're anxious for her to be here and truthfully none of us thought she'd come late. Just goes to show you "We Know Nothing" and it's all "In God's Perfect Timing".

It's been more than cold here with the snow and the zero degree temperatures. I'm more than ready for the weather to warm up. I've sat at my desk all day with my winter coat on. The guy down the isle is layered plus wearing a sweater. You know when guys start saying their cold that's it's cold. Someone just brought in Dilly bars.. I have to admit it wasn't too cold for a Dilly bar... yuummm

Well have a great week and make it count for the Lord.

Happy New Year

Wow it's almost been a month since I posted. Didn't realize how long it'd been. Where to start??

Well Christmas came and went and New Years has come and gone. I took vacation the week before Christmas and spent the week with the kids. I enjoyed my time at home with the kids. Really did a bunch of nothing but got a lot accomplished around my house that was long overdue. The kids had a wonderful Christmas and so did I. Johnny bought me a new Camera.. thus the lack of pictures. I haven't read up on my camera and I haven't just tried to connect it up and see if I can get the pictures off easily...yeah I know that's pretty lame but I'll eventually get it done.

We're still waiting on baby Jaylynn to join us. She is due on the 11th and the doctor has been saying for 2 weeks now that she could come any day. Her Momma is more than ready to have her here and so are we. Joe, Ashton and Bentley are living in their own home now. We see them about once a week. Bentley weighs about 13 lbs now and just gets cuter every day.

Not sure if I posted that we got a new dog. His name is Louie. He's a Yorkie and he is "Addie's Dog". He follows her every where, goes to bed when she goes to bed and wakes her up when he's ready to get up. Our 18 year old Katie is still kicking or at least she was when I left the house this morning. There are days I wonder if she'll make it thru the day. We'll miss her when she's gone but at this point she's gotten very confused and wonders around the house falling and getting into things. It's really very sad. Johnny and I neither one have the guts to take her and have her put down.

Johnny and I will be celebrating our 25th wedding Anniversary in May and we are planning a trip to Yellowstone. We're both excited! We've never had a big extended vacation and the last few years have been rather stressful so needless to say looking forward to some time away.
Speaking about stress. I still covet your prayers regarding the cafe. We currently don't have any one interested in it.

I'm looking forward to the New Year and God's plans for us this year. I wish each of you a Happy New Year and hope you're looking to Christ to guide and direct your paths this new year.
