Sorry I haven't been keeping up with posting...

Seems like I have been so busy lately. We haven't been to the farm for a few weekends. Steve says next weekend for sure. Work has been busy! We are so lucky to have a busy shop. After I get done cleaning the house this morning, I'm off to the shop to sand cabinets. We were there yesterday late too. Then home to watch Julie & Julia, have a glass of wine & eat some pizza.
Last weekend we went out for brunch with our daughter Amy & fiancee Rob at the place that they are having their wedding & reception.The food was great & the room looks out over a park-like setting of old oaks & a pond. Really beautiful. Here is a picture of the happy couple. We are so excited for them. The wedding is in May & will be here before we know it.


Amy & Rob

On Tuesday, I headed down to see Kristin, Tim & Jaelyn. I had such a great time. It is so special to have a grandchild. All the cute expressions and little cooing noises. And that sweet baby smell that newborns have. I am so proud of Kristin & Tim. They are adapting to parenthood just like I thought they would. The love I see in their eyes for Jaelyn fills my heart.  It was so hard to leave that sweet little baby, but we'll be back soon to see her.



Jaelyn had her first professional photo shoot at a week old. The pictures turned out so cute. Here is a link to them. Her's are the "sweet little girl" photos. The photographer is Patricia Mingus. She really does a great job.

If you can, please leave a comment after the pictures. There are free photos involved if they get 30 comments or more. Last I checked they had 17.
I am going to start posting more. Right now, since we have the house set up for showing, my computer is not in a appropriate place for comfortable use. Since our computer is getting old & acting up, we are thinking of investing in a laptop soon. Of course it will have to have a web cam so we can feel closer to the kids when we move to the farm. :-)

Your kids are doing great. You did a good job of raising them. Your GrandBaby looks so cute & the name is adorable.

Great that You have a lot to do at the shop! Such periods I think it´s impoirtant to take a break from many things so it feels fun to do them later again. Otherwise it can just start to feel like a burden instead.

Are there any interest for Your house? I hope You can sell it soon and move out to the barn.

I´ll check out that site and leave a comment!
Have a great day now!
Christer.
