Make-A-List Monday

The phone call came at 12:05 Friday morning....

We had been sleeping about 1 1/2 hours.  I tried to go back to sleep but, needless to say, that did not happen.  About an hour later we got the text...
"We're on our way to the hospital." 

 We quickly got dressed and started the 45 minute drive to meet our newest grandson.  

Then my son Kyle and I exchanged the following text convo:




Half way to the hospital we received the following picture:


Ohhhhh!  He's here!!!

Fifteen days early!!

I am pleased to introduce the next little boy to steal my heart...

Logan Kyle 

7 pounds 4 ounces
19 3/4 inches


Ryder loves his little brother:



I've been doing a HAPPY DANCE ever since.


Mommy, Daddy, brother and baby are all doing fine!

With all this excitement, I was still able to get a little sewing done before Logan arrived...
