Throwing Back & Looking Forward

Here is a TBT picture from October of 1990  showing Kelliann holding her new sister, Elissa shortly after we brought her home from the hospital.

Tonight, we are “sleeping with our shoes on” as we wait to get the phone call that Elissa and Cole are on the way to the hospital to give birth to their first child and our first granddaughter. I visited with them briefly last night and they are calm (mostly) and ready for the big day.

We get the phone call because I will likely have to get Selby, who will be staying with us for a few days until the dust settles and they get the baby home for a few days.

The countdown has begun.

  5. My dad always says if he had known how great grandkids were…..he would have had them first. I laugh but I think he might be on to something.
