Friday Fragments

Half-Past Kissin' Time

It's Friday and time for some fragments of this past week.  And, I do have some to share.......and some mighty BIG NEWS from our family. Oh, and I sure do hope that our lovely hostess, Mrs. 4444 is recovering nicely from her shoulder surgery.  I've been through shoulder surgery and it isn't a "cake walk."

Yes, you are seeing this correctly!  Our Princess is going to be a big sister around Feb. 15, 2015.  Now, some of you may not know that our Princess was adopted.  When our DIL was an very young adult she was told by Drs. that she would likely never be able to have children.  She and our son went through some fertility treatments before deciding to adopt.  But, after several failed attempts they decided that adoption was the route they would go.  And, on Oct. 7, 2009, our little Princess was born and what a gift she has been to our entire family.  And, now they have the blessed privilege of having one themselves.  It was a total and complete shock and I do believe that we had all sort of thought that it would never happen.  Well, the Lord knew all along and as we know, HIS timing is perfect.  Windy has done beautifully and gets glowing reports each time she goes to the Dr.  And, on Sept. 11th, we will find out if "it" is a boy or a girl.  As you can see in the picture above our DIL has the most gorgeous head of red hair and our son has auburn hair.  So, it's going to be interesting to see if they have a precious little red head or a blonde and blue eyed little darling. ~ever so often that does happen~  We rejoice in HIM who is the author of so much more than we can ever even imagine!
~~~~~~ 
Hanna Beth has been with me 3 days this week.  Our DIL started back to school this past Monday and Hanna Beth doesn't start until the 25th.  I don't know why in the world all schools, private or public, cannot operate by a nationwide calendar.  What would be so difficult about having all students on the same schedule?  Anyway, it can really cause issues for those teachers whose children's schools are not on the same schedule as theirs.  We've had a good time and will enjoy some more fun next week and then it's down to serious business - her first year of "real school."  We found out this week that her teacher is one of her Daddy's former babysitters.  How neat is that!!!
~~~~~~  
The house is coming along nicely.  Big changes every day and when I post the next pictures they will be working on the trusses and rafters.  Then it really will begin to look like a house.  We made our front door choice this week and we did end up going with a antique bronze iron door.  I think it is just beautiful and will be a lovely focal point for the front of our house.  It should arrive by the first week of December. ~surely they can make a door in 14 weeks~  And, we picked out our bathtubs and sinks and have just about decided on our windows. One day at a time and one choice at a time.

  1. Well this was certainly a wonderful way to start my morning! CONGRATULATIONS to you all! How exciting. I imagine they are just over the moon. And isn't God wonderful? Just when you think you are soo blessed you can't contain it, He blesses even more! So happy for you all. I was thinking the other day how wonderfully exciting it would to hand pick every little item for your own house. From the front door, to the fixtures to the windows and on and on. Can't think of a whole lot better in that arena. Yes, I imagine overwhelming at times, but so much fun! Enjoy! And I will enjoy it all through you. Have a good week-end Lea!

  2. Lea, this is the most wonderful news! I had seen something on FB about it, but was waiting to get the details from you. We are thrilled for them. One of C's best friends was told she couldn't conceive so they adopted a baby girl ten years ago. She recently gave birth to her 4th daughter. So God does work in amazing ways. The house is looking great and definitely no small little house at all. The front door sounds very interesting. When you get in and all settled, we look forward to seeing yours and the McGees. Have a great weekend.

  7. Congratulations on the expected new grand baby!! Like you, we got a wonderful shock when our daughter found out she, too, is expecting, due February 14th!!

    Our daughter and hubby have one son (starting the 1st grade this fall) and just didn't think this pregnancy would happen. It's amazing how much you and I have in common!

    Your house is really coming along! Your choice of a front door sounds really beautiful!

  13. I love when this happens! So happy for your son and daughter-in-law. I too was told at a young age that I probable wouldn't be able to have children. Fertility treatments yielded no results. But I'm grateful to be able to work with little children each day. It is a comfort from the Lord.

    Your house is coming along well. Looking forward to the next set of photos to see the progress.

    Blessings and love,
    Debbie
