Finally ART!!!!

I finally got to do some art today! Yippie! It has been awhile, I've been sick, Miss Kennedy was born, we've been out of town ALOT, and finally a weekend home. So today I worked on a little keepsake box, and I think it turned out really sweet. I was just so excited to sit down & actually get to work on something in the art room! Well that was after a little mandatory cleaning. I had to clean the art room in order to find the desk! Yikes! It was such a mess! It is much better now, not great, just better. That room could really use an overhaul but that will not happen anytime soon.We went to my parent's on the 25th for Christmas. My sister & brother were there. My in-laws were also there. We had loads of fun and laughed all afternoon.
This is my sister and me, we were having so much fun.
This is my sister, me and our Mom, we were just being silly for the camera.

Christmas with our family!

We spent friday, saturday & sunday with our son & daughter & their sweet families. We haven't had but 1 Christmas with our son in 9 years, so this was a very special time for all of us. Plus we had a new little baby to love on and Miss Kennedy was getting plenty of attention. My heart was so full, God has truly blessed me. I've been blessed with great kids & Grandkids. We had the best time & we took many photos. I hope you enjoy the photos, some of them are blurry, I just couldn't get the camera to cooperate. My hubby said it was the operator not the camera. (hum imagine that)!
Our daughter & her family. Plus Snitzel the weiner dog!
Our son & his family with little Miss Kennedy & 2 dogs, Macaroni & Logan.

And here is Miss Kennedy, she looked like a little Christmas package!

Here she is again, so alert and sweet!

Me & Hubby with all our wonderful Grandchildren! Aren't they adorable? Here we all are! I love each & eveyone of them!

My Hubby and I were on our way home & we had bought some candy sticks at the Cracker Barrel. We were eating these & our silly dog (Tinkerbelle) started barking at us. Then all of the sudden she grabbed the candy stick with her teeth & took a big bite! That was so funny! She just wasn't going to be left out! Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas! Ours was early with our kids, but so wonderful. That was my gift, for us to all be together! Hugs***Renea

Miss Kennedy Update

Ta-Da here she is MISS KENNEDY! What a sweet little bundle of joy!
How blessed we truely are...Miss Kennedy is doing great! She may possibly get to come home today. Mom is also doing great, she is getting around very well and very little pain. I got to hold Miss Kennedy yesterday for the first time, and what a little piece of heaven! She is so small, tiny little lips, tiny hands but has very long feet. She only weighs 6 lbs 5 oz, and is 20 inches long. We are so thankful for this wonderful outcome. I'm so excited that she may get to come home. Our daughter & her family are coming on friday or saturday so that we can all be together & have an early Christmas. What a blessing that will be, as our son is usually oversea during the holidays.

NaNa with sweet little Miss Kennedy. What a little sweetheart!

Dad & Miss Kennedy.

Dad with Miss Kennedy. She doesn't look too happy at this moment!
Happy MOM with Miss Kennedy.

Here is the happy little family.

Welcome sweet Miss Kennedy, there are many who love you & many who have prayed for you. Thanks to everyone for your prayers in our time of need. God bless you all. Hugs***Renea

Miss Kennedy has arrived!

Finally we have the arrival of Miss Kennedy! It was a long, long night & I still haven't gone to bed. I drove 4 & 1/2 hours last night to get here, and I got here at 7:30pm. However, we still didn't have a baby until 10:12am this morning. And poor Grif, she tried her best to deliver Miss Kennedy but things weren't in her favor, Kennedy was turned with head to the side & Grif just wasn't progressing well, and Kennedy's heart rate kept dropping. So we had a c-section, and during this time Kennedy went into distress & had a meconium birth. My son went into the o.r. for the c-section and it was really hard for him b/c Kennedy had to have CPR and was put on a respirator. Grif asked him how Kennedy was doing & my brave son said, "she's doing great", I couldn't have done it! What a trooper! We sent out prayer request to everyone, and indeed God did answer our prayers, Kennedy was extubated & now on oxygen, has an IV, and a small tube down her throat. She is doing so much better. She will be in ICU tonight & probably all tomorrow. But God is so good. We have a beautiful baby girl, blonde hair, pale blue eyes (just like my son), 6 lbs & 5 oz, and 20 inches long. What a little beauty! And MOM (Grif) was so tired, but she did a great job. Please everyone keep Kennedy in your prayers for her continued progress. What a little sweetheart, thank you God for our sweet little baby. Hugs to our Baby Kennedy! Renea

We're Ready For Miss Kennedy to Arrive!

Well our son got home safe & sound. His back was still causing him lots of pain. He went back to the doctor today & got more medication. He will have to return to Korea January 2nd. But at least he will be here for the birth of their first child.

Our Granddaughter (Miss Kennedy) is officially due tomorrow! We are so excited! Our DIL has a doctor appointment tomorrow at 1:45p. The doctor will determine when he will induce her labor. So we may have a baby by the end of the week. Yippie! The photo below is my son & DIL at the park today. It was too cold here today to go to the park, but nice & sunny there.
Well that's all I have for tonight. Just wanted to post this cute photo of the parents to be. Hopefully in the next few days I will have photos of Miss Kennedy to post. Yippie! What a great Christmas gift a baby is! One more Grandchild to add to our collection! Hugs to you all***Renea

As you know I have finished Kenney's stocking with much love & hard work. Many years ago I made stockings for my 3 Grandson's. I made each of the boys a stocking before their first Christmas. They have each so lovingly posed for the photos below with there stockings made by me NaNa. First Grandson is Tyler, Second Grandson is Gummy (Montgomery), Third is Curtis. Oh I love these boys so much, they are so fun to be around. They each have a great personality.
For Christmas I have made each of the boys a travel pillow with a pillow case. They all turned out really cute. Below are the photos of the travel pillows with the pillow cases that I made for them.Please keep my son Corey in your prayers. He is to fly home friday from Korea to Dallas. He is still in alot of back pain. I pray that he won't be in too much pain on his way home. We are so excited that he is coming home because that means that baby Kennedy will soon arrive. Yippee! Thank you all for your prayers & kind thoughts. I appreciate each of you & always look forward to reading your comments. Hugs***Renea
