Wow, What a Week!!! Welcome to our Christmas Grandson

I hope you all had a marvelous Christmas celebration! I think ours was above and beyond this year! We had a lovely Christmas Eve at my sister's house, for a brunch. That evening we had our church service for Christmas Eve. Sunday, Christmas morning, we were getting ready to leave for church when the phone rang, and our son was telling us he and his wife were on the way to the hospital to have the baby! We went to church and in the afternoon we had a family party, and the day was interspersed with phone calls from my son in Indiana. A little before 2 o'clock we got the news that we had a Christmas Grandson!

Our little Timothy Michael was 9 lbs and 21 1/4" long, so Anna has a baby brother now. In January I am going up for a couple of weeks to meet the little fellow.

The rest of Christmas was special and fun, and I got spoiled by my family, as usual, which of course I love. Then the next day was my husband's birthday and he was actually off work for it, so we had a nice day together.

Yesterday, we celebrated our 33 wedding anniversary! Well, we didn't really get to do very much yet, but it was still special. Actually, the weekend before Christmas, he took me downtown to Fort Myers' historical River District, and we strolled around listening to the street musicians, enjoying the architecture, browsing in the lovely little art galleries, shops and boutiques, and he bought me a really lovely purse. Then we went to lunch. And this weekend we plan dinner and a movie. But the best part is just the privilege of being married to this wonderful man for 33 years! He's my best friend, and the smartest, handsomest, kindest, funniest, most romantic and thoughtful man I've ever met.

The cold I had turned out to be a lot worse than I had anticipated, so I spent nights sitting up in a chair, coughing my brains out, so that wasn't much fun, and I've had laryngitis so I couldn't talk to anyone, which I couldn't do anyway, or eat, without coughing... but I definitely think the good stuff outweighed the bad this past week. Here's a picture to prove it!

A Christmas joy to outdo the Christmas cough! How wonderful!!!

Blessings and peace to you as you walk these final days of 2011. My voice is still out, but I'm hoping that tomorrow will yield greater results. Funny, I didn't know how much I talked until I wasn't able. Actually, everyone in my house is talking in whispers as well.

Wow, sounds like all your celebrations are grouped into a week of wonder - births, birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas! Congrats on little Timothy.

I think we must have the same virus that's producing that wretched cough. I'm on my way to laryngitis, too.

Ah, congrats!! He is so sweet, and reminds me a lot of my last 2 newborns, who were 9+ lb as well - bigger babies just are cute right off the bat :) I hope your cold has subsided by now (I'm fighting one too), and I'll be thinking of you when you're in my state! Have a wonderful time!
