I have a new adorable grandbaby!!!!! Her name is Melia Rose Dillard. She was born to my oldest daughter and her husband on June 26. That is also Steve's and my anniversary,two of our son in law's birthdays,and Steve's sister's birthday. What a wonderful anniversary gift! I was able to be in the room for the delivery! What an amazing experience that was for me!!!
It's going to be a busy few weeks around here. Megan and Travis are coming tonight and they will be here until next Sunday. Natalie and Matt are coming tomorrow for the weekend. We will be celebrating my birthday on Saturday and Mother's Day on Sunday. The following Thursday Mandy and Matt and the grandbabies will come and stay through the weekend. Natalie and Matt will come back for the weekend too. They are all going to be here for Emily's graduation on Saturday. The following Tuesday Emily and I will go to Utah and stay until Sunday. Thursday we are going to hang out with Travis's Mom and sister. Megan's shower will be on Friday. Saturday we will hang out with Steve's sisters.
We got back on Sunday from our California trip. We had a fun time hanging out at the beach. We also walked on Hollywood Boulevard and checked out the stars on the sidewalk and Graumins Chinese Theatre. We took a ride through Beverly Hills in a limo and checked out Rodeo Drive. Had fun playing with the grandbabies! Emily, my baby, got engaged this week! We also celebrated Mandy's 30th birthday! All in all a very eventful week!
Packing is a major ordeal for me!!!! Does anyone else feel the same way? I try to devote the whole day before I leave just for packing. I can't ever decide what to take. Then I always think I am forgetting something! It's all so overwhelming!
So it's off to California for our whole family on Wednesday. We are going on this trip to celebrate Emily's college graduation. She doesn't actually graduate until May, but with the pregnant sisters, we had to move the trip up to spring break. We are renting a beach house while we are there. It should be a lot of fun.
I'm back from my trip and trying to get back to normal. It won't last too long though, because we are going on a family trip to California on the 17th to celebrate Emily's graduation. She will be our last child to graduate from college. We are going to stay in a beach house there. It should be a lot of fun!
Christmas kinda got spread out for our family this year. The girls and spouses/boyfriend exchanged gifts with the names they drew at Thanksgiving because the whole family was together. Christmas morning we had Natalie, Matt, Emily, and Bossy. Both pairs had other family to spend time with, so Steve and I spent part of the day alone. Then Wednesday we came to Plano and exchanged gifts with Mandy, Matt, and the kids. We are going home tommorrow (Saturday). It's been fun playing with the kids!
I am a mother to 4 beautiful grown daughters. I have 4 precious grandchildren & #5 on the way! I have been married to my cute & hardworking husband for 36 years. I could not live a day without him! I also have 3 handsome son in laws.
