.....and then there are days.

This last year has been filled with days. 

Of joy. 

And gut wrenching heartache. 

And endurance. 

And joy. 

Today was a day of joy. 
All of my grandchildren. 

11 of them. 

Nick and Lynsey's
Lexi 8

Matt and Tara's
Josh 16
Jaren 14
Justin 11
Jessica 10

Nate and Sara's
Krew 9
Kendrix 7
Locklyn 1
Leighton 3 months

Cameron and Guen's
Teddy 3
Timmy 8 months

My heart is filled. 

We gathered for a blessing of Leighton who made her entrance 2 months early. 
But today she thrives. 

And cousins became fast friends.

And this week we are babysitting for parents who need some help and a break.

Krew     Kendrix   Lexi

They didn't last long in the car ride home.
Tomorrow two more come.

I think Uncle Matt is pretty taken by this girl. 

My kids have grown into wonderful humans.  

And I'm proud of them everyday.

Today was a best day. 

A day of joy.

I never thought I would understand this whole "grandma" thing, but I totally agree that the best days are when all of your chicks and their chicks are together. Lucky you!

Oh wow, your family sure has gotten bigger with each passing day. That's a lot of kiddos. Being a grandma is the best.
Happy Spring
