Vacation and a beautiful addition to the family...

Today is a busy day but it is one of my favorite days of the is the day before we leave on vacaton!  It has been a whirlwind of a week...I think this is the first time I have't been 'almost' pack and ready to go the week before!  {*smiles*}

The thing I am most thankful for today is my family!  Last Friday, my 9th grandchild was born and I couldn't be happier!  Ethan William was born weighing in at a whopping 8lbs 15.2 ozs and was 20 3/4" long.  He is an amazing little guy that was welcomed into this world by a large and loving family!  His big brothers, Nick & Isaac, are so proud of him.  Isaac is 3 and spends much of his time 'kissing' his little brother.  Nick, who is 6, just wants to hold him. 

It is a beautiful thing watching your grown children interact with their children.  I love sitting back in the corner of the room watching as my children and grandchildren all love on one another!  Yes, there is still the occasional bickering...they are siblings, after all...but over all, they all get along well.  I wouldn't trade my life for anything.  I have 4 amazing kids, 4 amazing added kids (my kids' spouses) and 9 WONDERFUL grandchildren with 1 on the way!!!  My life is full and hectic and blessed beyond measure!

Thank you, Lord, for the wonderful blessings in my life.  Please feel free to add as many more as you the way of grandbabies! 

Have a blessed Thursday!
