The Best Christmas Present Ever!

I received the best Christmas present ever and no paper packaging was required. My dear daughter, Lindsey, and her husband, Jake, gave me a beautiful new grandson named Owen Michael Gigliotti on December 20, 2011 at 12:14 p.m. weighing in at 8 lbs. 12 oz. and 20 inches long. He came quick and had some difficulty with the amniotic fluid not dispersing very well and getting his lungs clear so there were a few scary moments and all of them staying in the hospital a little longer than expected, but they are home now and as you can see here, my 1st grandson, Andrew, is all smiles and happy his baby brother is finally home.

I stayed with Andrew while his parents were in the hospital and we had such fun. We cleaned the house and got it ready for his mom and dad and new baby brother to come home to, went shopping for presents for them (which he picked out personally and his mom definitely liked that purple nail polish he picked out for her) and went to see the movie “Chipwrecked” with the Chipmunks.

And here is Mimi (me) with Baby Owen. Don’t babies just make your heart melt?

I know I have been amiss with my postings lately, but it has been a difficult few months especially in finding help with the care of my stepson.  My camera has also gone AWOL (I am hoping I find it so I don’t have to buy a new one). These photos were taken with my camera phone and my daughter’s but I do hope I can locate my digital one soon!  I have a few cards waiting to be photographed using new products from the Sale-A-Bration and Occasions Mini Catalogs that I want to show everyone. We made the projects at my Customer Appreciation Holiday Party last Monday. And I hope to do a Blog Candy giveaway so check back soon!
