A new addition

Today has been marked a special day to celelbrate the birth another Blessing that Christ has placed in our lives, Born this morning at 6:57 was my third baby grandson, I am a Nana 3 times OH MY!!!!!!

8 pounds and 10 ounces

19 1/2 inches long

Jacob will be his first name, We will call him Coby as he has a dad and uncle both by the name of Jacob also.

From what I understand they are still undecided for sure on his middle name. Mom and Coby are both doing fine, Dad is with Mom and Big brothers are here with Nana and Pop Pop.

We are all so very Thankful that He is with us and he has many people to love him and care for him....What a rewarding day

ROund up

What books and/or magazines did I read this month?

I have been reading the 4th book in a series, it is the Yada Yada Prayer group Series but I have days I read and other days I don't get around to it so It is taking me a while to get thru the book, I do need to get busy with it cause the next one is out now and that makes me more excited to get reading it...

What movies and/or tv shows did I watch this month?

I don't think I watched any movies, I very rarely watch TV, maybe if hubby is watching something I'll watch it a few minutes with him.

What special days did I celebrate and how?

August is a busy month for us, First is my Moms BD although we didn't do anything for it I was very in thought about it being this is the first year she hasn't been here with us.

Next was Rachel my oldest daughters 27th BD, ugh talk about getting old, that would be me LOL. My dads BD is just two days after Rachels so we celebrated them together. I cooked stuffed peppers, Fresh Green Beans and red skinned potatoes for Dinner, Jacob brought a cake from Friendlys it was a reese's PB cake and was delicious, there were 11 of us here for dinner .

What gifts did I give and/or receive?

For my dad I bought him a hooded zipper sweat shirt for this fall to wear when he sits outside.
For Rachel I bought her the new casting crown CD that came with a free T-Shirt and a bottle of body spray and a bottle of body lotion from bath and body, a pad of scrap paper from Jo-Anns that she wanted to use for her new baby's scrapbook and some matching embellishments. I have also been buying the baby new things off and on and giving them to her to get things ready for him when he comes. I had a friend that had a BD this month also and I bought her a pad of scrap paper also and some matching embellishments.

What new foods, recipes or restaurants did I try this month?

Hubby and I picked up my dad one night and took him to a new ice cream stand that re-opened with a 50's decor and seating inside, It used to be just a window stand but it's in the town I grew up in and it's been there for as long as I can remember, it's a neat dome shaped silver and red metal building now.
