A new addition!

So, I haven't been around much lately. Oh, I have been posting my Friday Funnies, but that's it. Nothing of an substance has proceeded from my heart into this little corner of cyberspace. I have started several posts, but none of them have felt right. So they sit in my drafts file, waiting for me to decide if they will be completed.

In the meantime, life goes on. My grandtoy was born last Wednesday. And what is a "grandtoy", you ask? Well, a grandtoy is what you get when your deceased best friend/husband's cousin's oldest daughter has her 1st child:

Meet little Ms. Rebecca, Becca for short. Technically she is my cousin. In my heart, she is something of a granddaughter, but I don't want to step on any toes by officially claiming that title. I am good with being whatever she wants, so long as I get to be in her life. Hence "grandtoy", a beautiful and loveable baby girl for me to spoil!

Just for fun (and because I am a photo hoarder who has collected all the family photos I can get my hands on) here is one of Grandma Becky with her mommy in 1971:

And here is Becky and Ashley (Becca's mommy) in 1990:

And so we come full circle:

Becky would be so proud! :)

Forever and ever my friend.


  1. Congrats! What an exciting celebration!

    1. Thank you! I am looking forward to seeing her again this weekend. I get daily pictures, but it's just not the same as holding her in my arms!


Thank you for stopping by to read my rambles. I would love it if you leave me a comment! Comments make my heart smile!
