MIA

This has been the most amazing two weeks of my life to say the least. Nov 14 my husband turned 60 and we had a sit down dinner for 18 with great wine and amazing food. At the last minute his brother and SIL decided to come and stay with another couple ...so we also had house quests. I could go into those stories....BUT....I want to get to the best part.....

The night before the party after we had gone to bed at 1:30... the phone rang.....and it was our son informing us that he had taken Brooke to the hospital because Gunnar was ready to make his way into the world. I was no longer tired to say the least and at 3:20....Gunnar Stephen Con..... was born. 7 lbs 10 oz, 20 inches long and as healthy as can be!!!

A few days later my Mom came to visit and we all made the 9 hr drive up north to visit our first grand child.



Here's a picture of the exhausted parents...with Gunnar's furry brother Hank.




HAPPY THANKSGIVING everyone ....count your blessings!
