Last Days of July

My Sister and I were talking the other day how quickly the summer seems to be passing by. The days are here and gone before I seem to accomplish all I need to or want to. Soon August will be here and then on to the holidays. Must be my age but time seems to move much too quickly these days.

I was lucky enough to have a 3 day weekend this past weekend and I filled it t the top with "chores" playing with family and friends and attending a fund raiser for the sweetest little boy ever.

Welcome to the Family

Welcome to the family Greyson and Cambelle!!!!
Saturday morning in a hospital in New York and to the radio playing "Born in the USA" in the OR Zach and Amy became the proud parents of twins. My sister is now finally a Grandmother. Yeah Jo!!! It was so appropriate that that was the song playing as they were delivered. Greyson is the smaller of the two at 5# 3 oz and Cambelle weighed a whopping 5# 9 oz Cambelle has her Mom's dark hair and looks like lots of it and Greyson is sandy colored. With their hats on I couldn't tell them apart.
We are all overjoyed that these two sweeties are the 4th and 5th Great Grandchildren in the family.
Big congrats Amy and Zach we are all so thrilled and excited for you. Looking like Tuesday the little family will be discharged.
