I'm a grandma again. Yeah, hooray!

Earlier today, about 6:30 p.m. my time I became a grandma for the 6th time. So far, the other grandchildren have been boys and our son, Ryan, was certain their baby was going to be a boy. They already had two sons. I told him not to be too sure because God has a sense of humor.

The last girl in the family was Ryan's sister, Nicole, who will be 37 in November, so we were sorely ready for a girl in the family.

Guess what? God DOES have a sense of humor. The baby IS a girl and mom and baby are fine. No name yet...they didn't even consider that they would have a girl, they didn't even pick out girl names. That part is "to be continued."

I can't wait to make little girl things and, tomorrow, when I go to the shop I'm going to inform my sewing machines that they are going to be smokin'.

Yeah! Yeah!

Spoiled? What's spoiled?

Are you kidding, this child is going to be ROTTEN. I can't wait to make goodies for her!!!

Buck always said it was a good thing I had Nicole, because he said I needed a Barbie doll. Haven't had a Barbie doll in 37 years. Boy, am I overdue!!!

Congratulations there Grams I know how you feel about that little girl. I expected boy four when my daughter had her second baby...Low and behold we now have our Olivia...Whips all the boys, has them wrapped around her finger, loves girly stuff but plays all the boy games. You should see how well Missy throws a baseball Beats her brother every time
ahh little girls...Enjoy your new little one..She is one lucky baby.
