My newest granddaughter

Emily had an emergency C section Saturday night to deliver identical twin girls….at 26 weeks. Gabriella Catherine did not make it, but Cynthia Paige is hanging in there. She weighs one pound seven ounces.  Here is a picture of Em and Cindy Lou:

Also, notice the “bracelet” on her right wrist…that is Russell’s wedding ring.

Please keep Emmy and Russell and their family in your prayers.

Savannah, part one

So, the whole reason for going to Savannah was to help out when this little miss was born:


Magdalena Rose, born March 21, 7lbs 11oz. She just gets cuter every day!

While we were there, I finally got to go to River Street!!! I have been waiting very patiently for a chance to go.



The history of the buildings just amazes me. I would love to go back in time to see them in their original use(of course, being a woman, I would not have been down in the cotton district, it was all business).


We went to Kevin Barry’s. I had the Irish Sampler, which included from left: Shepherd Pie, corned beef and cabbage, and Irish Stew. YUM. After that, we went and got Pralines. Thank goodness we did a lot of walking! We also drove by the childhood home of Flannery O’Conner. We had hoped to go on a tour, but never got the chance. Ah well, next time! We did the traditional trip to Tybee Island, and helped Em and Russ for a couple of weeks. We stayed long enough for the baby to get baptised, then headed off for Philly, which I’ve already posted about.
