Chapter 1, Page 10, Book 10


Here is DDIL#6 at her baby shower yesterday.

We had such a good time at the shower yesterday. We ate some good food and played fun games and watched my DDIL#6 open gifts. Babies are so special and everyone loves buying and giving baby gifts too. It was a very nice way to spend a cold winter afternoon.

I also got to see and hold our Little Lad on Saturday too. He has really grown a lot since I last saw him at Christmas. We got together after the shower to celebrate the January birthdays in my family.

Here are our January birthday people

Our Princess, DS#6 and our Star.

The boys hung out at DS#5’s house while we girls went to the shower and then afterwards we ate even more food and had some more cake too!

They had 2 cakes at the shower…one pink and one blue as they don’t know yet if the baby is a boy or a girl so we had cakes in both colors. They are waiting for the birth somewhere around the beginning of March and then we’ll know for sure.

I’ll be off to church as usual and then home to get ready for a new work week.

You all are in my thoughts and prayers as always

‘On Ya’-ma
