Happy 21st Birthday!
Is that really possible?
It feels like life has gone in a blur.

Candice 21!
Not possible.
"I love you sweet angel baby!
Your skin and bones turned into something beautiful!"

Candice the birthday girl with big brother Matt
We celebrated with all of the family here except Nate.
Missed you Nate.

We also blessed Theo.
That makes 8 grandchildren for me!!!!!

I'm not kidding about the blur thing!

It's a rare treat to have all 8 in the same place.
"We done good didn't we?"
It was a little easier to get all the grandchildren to sit for a picture.
Their parents whined about it.
"Yup Mr. Egan, we got us a bunch of good lookin' kids!"
Aunt Tara and Aunt Lynsey holding baby Theo
The week prior to all of this I was babysitting 4 of the 8.
By myself! (Howie was in Minnesota.)
I consider it a success.
No one was lost or hospitalized.

I also accidently drove by CAL Ranch.
And accidently bought somethun'...
well, maybe two somethuns'....
Cute, huh?
Even better... The grandkids loved them!

I have 8 grandchildren too but keep four of them at one time - no ma'am. Not any more. I've done that. I told their parents that any time I go over three one parent must stay too. :) Love the pictures! blessings, marlene
