Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice...

At 2:04am, August 12, 2008 I officially became a Great Aunt. Since Jim and I aren't able to have children, this is the closest we will get to be grandparents. We are over the moon! Our sweet niece Becky and her darling husband Dan welcomed Madison Grace into the world. 7lbs 9oz of pure sugar!!!!

Becky and Dan moved to South Carolina a few months ago, so it will be a while before I can cuddle our sweet girl, and give lots of kisses...

Praising and thanking God today for a healthy girl, a safe delivery and the newest addition to our family!

Every good and perfect gift is from above...

Congrat, Auntie! You are now a great aunt, huh? I just love to use the play on that word. Oh, like you were a terrible aunt before. haha

Ah, was she named after my hometown? Haha.

I have no children of my own so I adore my neices.
Luv,

What a great scripture for match!!

I am praying that the time seems very short before you get to love all over miss Madison Grace!

Have a sweet and blessed day!
