Oh, I'm Not Too Late!

Hello sweet friends in blogland.  It's the last day of January- so I still have time to post this month!  I have been wanting to come back and today is as good as any- and hey, it's right here.:)

It seems the last few months that I have just taken the time to log onto Facebook and keep up with friends and family there, and just got sidetracked away from blogging.  Well, I'm back and looking forward to reconnecting with you.   I have seen that some others have taken some breaks also- and hey, we all need a break now and then, right?

I do have a big announcement for my blog friends-- we have another grandchild-our THIRD one since June!! Our beautiful grand daughter Audrey Linda Beatrice -- I know!! She has my name too!  :)))  Audrey was born to our son Ben and our sweet daughter (in love) Lisa. 

Audrey is little sister to our sweet  (almost 3 year old) Sophia Genevieve Grace. Audrey  was born  Wednesday, November 23rd.. She weighed in at 6 pounds 14 ounces, and 19.75 inches long.

Sophie and Audrey live far away from us in Pittsburgh, so we haven't seen Audrey yet in person-- yes we have Skyped with them and that was wonderful!    But guess what sweet friends... they are coming for a visit in February--- and February starts like...tomorrow!!!  Yay!

So in about ten days we will see them.

Well, that's enough excitement for one day.   Whew! I'm sooo glad to be back-- I've missed you all very much.   Lots of pictures to come, and much catching up to do!

I will be coming around to visit you, too.:)

Have a  great last day of January!  By the way, it is going to be 50 degrees here in Wisconsin today- can you believe it?  We are loving this mild winter this year, although we here in the northern plains are always a little gun shy-- waiting for the other shoe to drop as they say--because we know that a blizzard could be just around the corner.

So we'll take it a day at a time and enjoy the journey.:)

God bless.  See you soon!

Hi Linda!

I see I'm not the only one who took a blogging break! Looks like there has been quite the baby explosion in your family and that you are lovin' every minute of it.

We've had unseasonably warm temps here as well--hope they continue to last.

Hugs from Heidi

Linda it is so nice to hear from you again.
The photos of your grands are wonderful.
I hope that you have lots of fun time with them in Feb.
We have also had a very strange but mild winter but the shoe is going to fall here tonight.
Hugs
