Baby Brother ... Princesses... Carnivals

First of all I will say ... What a weekend we had!  
There's never a dull moment in our household and this past weekend was no exception ... 

'Joe received a phone call last Wednesday and by Saturday morning was back to work. 
He only left a day ahead of schedule, but still ... 
it was 24 hours.
So, on Friday:

We went to a 3D ultrasound to "see" Lucy's baby brother ... he was so much more laid-back than his sister during her 3D ... but this baby boy has some muscles!!!





Later Friday afternoon, Grandad left work early and met the family at The Cheesecake Factory (yes, a favorite of ours) for 'Joe's send-off dinner.  Can you tell "who" stole the show???




Lucy hung out with Grandad & Granny on Saturday morning while Mrs. 'Joe took her Mr. to the airport.  Then later that morning the four of us had a fun time at an area Fall Carnival.  Costumes, "trick or treating" (by a few of the shopping center tenants), pumpkin decorating, and a hay-bale maze!  Oh, and of course ... introducing Princess Cinderella ... and Cindy LOVES cotton candy (just like her Mommy & her Granny) ...




With the finished pumpkin ... 




Then yesterday after church & lunch, we went to another Fall Carnival at one of the outdoor malls.  But today, we were accompanied by yet another princess ... 

Snow White ...






So, as you can tell ... we've had a big weekend in our household.  

We are blessed ... 
we are grateful to God for His (more than) sufficient grace everyday ... 
life is good.



Now, for the "looking forward" part ... 

This week I will be having my very first giveaway!!!  I'm so very excited about this product ... and I'm sure that you will be too.  Parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends ... 
well, basically anyone who has pictures will love this giveaway.  

So, by the end of the week I will post my review & the giveaway details ... 
be on the look-out ... 
it will worth it!

Those 3D sonograms are amazing! Looks like a fun weekend from beginning to end.

One note though. Just an fyi - the blog post came up a little wonky on this end with some photos regular sized and some GIGANTIC!!!!

Hi Oklahoma Granny, Yes, 3Ds are amazing these days! When our daughter had one with Lucy, we were shocked at the details & vivid pics. Of course, though, when I was pregnant with our daughter, our insurance wouldn't pay unless there was a specific problem ... so we had to wait until she was born (and I have never liked surprises at all :) And thank you for letting me know about the pics ... not sure what's going on -- they are normal size on my end. Hope everything looks normal now.

I hope the pics are normal size -- I'm not sure what to do since I've re-checked the sizing. Any suggestions?

Hey Deb! Thanks for visiting my little writing corner:) Yes, Grandad & I are proud grandparents-to-be of Lucy's little baby brother ... so we will have a princess & a prince before too long. Hope you're doing good -- thinking about you :)

What can equal a grandchild? They are such a joy to our hearts, and the fact that we can now see them by way of 3D imaging is just too wonderful.

Granny said...

Hi Sassy Granny, I agree -- nothing even comes close to the joy of grandchildren. And being able to see our little grandson in 3D was simply breathtaking. Ahhhhhhh .....

Being a grandparent is one of the most awesome gifts from God!!
Looks like you had a great time...love the little princess!

Your photos are still HUGE...I was having the same problem earlier and had to remove them and add them back to the page. Try that and see if it works for you.

Thank you for stopping by my blog...I enjoy hearing from you!

Hi Tina, Thank you for your nice comment ... what was life like before grandkids? Thanks for the suggestion on the pics. I removed them then uploaded again. I hope they are back to normal size now. I have no idea what happened.

I'm so very thankful for all of my blogging friends ... each of you brighten my days ... God is truly awesome to bring people together through this blog-world. Have a blessed week :)
