{Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real}~ June 24, 2012

My first grandchild made her appearance on June 12.  We are all thrilled!  We think she's the prettiest thing we've seen in a long time.

I think Girl of the House likes being an aunt.

Man of the House seems to be pretty happy to be a grandpa too.  "I guess we'll keep her," he says with a twinkle in his eye.

The proud parents~

Baby yawns are always so funny!

That Boy is Girl 2's math tutor.  Usually they "meet" online, but this time they got to meet face-to-face.  Not even the birth of a baby gets Girl 2 out of math.  At least it's more fun with the baby there.  She doesn't seem too excited, though, does she?

  Girl Out of the House gets credit for the {funny} and {real} photos.  She's a much better photographer than I am!

Join Like Mother, Like Daughter for more {phfr} fun, especially if you enjoy weddings!

She's Here!

An exciting day today!  Our first grandchild was born this evening!  Mother and baby are both doing fine.  Now is my first opportunity to show off pictures of my grandchild. lol  She looks just like her mommy.

Here's the proud daddy with his little girl.

I'm thanking the Lord for this blessing!

{Pretty} and {Happy}
Here's a picture of Girl Out of the House taken about ten days ago at thirty-eight weeks into her pregnancy. 

The Big Day is this Tuesday, but we all know that babies come when they are good and ready.  Doesn't Girl 1 look {pretty} and {happy}?  We are all anxiously awaiting the arrival of our first baby/granddaughter/niece (as the case may be)!

Speaking of the forthcoming grandbaby . . .  I decided to do a little sewing to welcome the little one.  When I want to sew something, I figure it out as I go.  I'm definitely a beginner!  I bought this pattern .  Notice is says "easy-to-sew."  "Ha!" she says in scorn.  Maybe it's easy for someone who already knows what she's doing, but for li'l ol' me ~ a bear of little brain ~ it was an exercise in mind-reading.  Why, oh, why aren't the instructions clearer?  Why, oh, why is it assumed that you already know what you…

Joining Like Mother, Like Daughter . . .

We planted two rose bushes this spring.  If all goes well, they will eventually climb the arbor over the patio, meet in the middle, and create glorious, rose-scented shade.  The first buds bloomed this week!

Our garden is growing like gangbusters, which makes us happy for many reasons. One night this week something unusual happened~ I was alone for supper, so I went out to the garden and picked the first of the peas.  I cannot adequately describe the yumminess of those peas!  It was a mixture of sunshine, rain, really good dirt, and fresh air.  I'm looking forward to eating more of these little green bursts of goodness!
There are lots more where those came from!

We have three pea patches like this one.  (Those are green beans planted on the north side.)

In addition to the peas and green beans, we have a strawberry bed, tomatoes, gourds, mini pumpkins, butternut squash, cucumbers, a pepper plant, raspberries, and sweet potat…
