Oh Happy Day and howdy darlin’!

Well, I’ve been a little busy…my first grand-daughter was born! She weighed 7 pounds 14 ounces!

And what a baby-doll she is!!


Sweet Polly June!

Bundle of joy sent from above, glorious treasure to cherish and love!

mamaMy first baby girl had her first baby girl!


This was the first time big brother Johnny got to hold is little sister in the hospital! Lots of emotions! He was so careful, a little timid at first, then full of nervous giggles!


For Polly’s homecoming, my daughter Ashley wrote this heartfelt greeting on the huge chalkboard in their kitchen.

Sweet as sweet can be!

I need to kiss that face!




I can’t even express to you what a blessing it is to hold my sweet grand-baby! To think my hubby and I tried for several years to conceive…time after time we were met with disappointment. After lots of tears (even while watching Pamper’s diaper commercials!) and lots of prayers, my dream of becoming a mother finally came true. Although my first pregnancy sadly ended in a miscarriage  I soon became pregnant with my son Dusty. Two years later came Ashley (Polly’s mama) then J.J. and 11 years later came Summer Rose (A very happy surprise!)  It’s so wonderful to see how the Lord not only blessed me with my 4 children, He gave me two lovable daughter’s-in-love and one adorable son-in-love…and now  I am doubly blessed with my grandchildren! In June, I have another one coming…that will equal 4 grand-babies! God is good! I’m one thankful mama.

Daddy’s little girl has melted his heart


I couldn’t be more proud of the wonderful, tender, loving mother my daughter has become. I’m equally thrilled with the amazing artist and creative photographer she is. Most of the photos of sweet Polly on this blog post were taken with her iphone!  You can follow her on instagram under her user name @owlbolt.


“Precious and priceless, so lovable, too-

The world’s sweetest miracle

baby, is you.
