HAve a nice Sunday . . .

This weekend my son, his wife, and their son (my new grandson - 8 months old) came to visit. We had the best time. My daughter through my ten year old GS a black belt party. He received it last month, but we waited until my son could bring his family. This is the truth - he drove down from Ohio on Friday and back today. That alone was such a huge gift, but that everyone had a great time and that the party turned out to be a huge success was icing on the cake for me.

And there was a gorgeous cake too. Tomorrow pictures. Today catching up on sheets, laundry, dishes, and cleaning and then for a nap!

My new grandson is a bad sleeper. He takes mini naps during the day and last night he was up all night. Mom is so tired and I feel so bad for her. She did let my son sleep in another room so he could drive them home today. I pray they make it home safe. An 8 hour drive!

So just a quick post today.

I'm hoping you a nice relaxing Sunday.

Here's a quote from Linda.

“When the tides of life turn against you and the current upsets your boat,
don't waste those tears on what might have been, just lie on your back and float.”

Wow, 8 months old already!! Wasn't he just born last month? How quickly the time is flying.

I'm so glad your son and his family were able to come down to share in that wonderful occasion.

Happy birthday and congratulations to GS #1.

Hi Chatty. Brilliant quote at the end there. How lovely for you to see your youngest grandson, and for all the family to be together like that. As you say, an 8 hour drive is a long way, so really good that they made the effort and you had the party to celebrate your older grandson's black belt achievement. Happy times my friend.

Getting enough sleep is so hard for a mommy! Sounds like a good time was had by all. Family celebrations are fun.
