a nice little surprise....

As my friend, Sally and I were just arriving into
Napa, I received a call from my sister asking if
I had heard the news?  As I may or may not have
told you all before that my sis was going to be a
grandma not once, but twice this year - she proudly
told me that she had a new grandbaby girl!!  That
was a definite surprise as it was not even on my
mind as of yet - as she was due on August 7th.  We
have a beautiful new addition to our family - Mia
Rose.  She weighed in at 7.5 pounds and is 19 1/2
inches long!!  Yippee!!  After Napa (more on that
tomorrow), Sally and I headed straight to the hospital
to see my new niece, Mia and her parents - my nephew
Rog and his wife Denise.  I told them how pleased I was
that they had planned the birth perfectly to coincide with
my trip up north!!  So excited for them and for all of us -
it will be nice to have little ones again.  My little great nephew
Mason, is also very excited to have a new little cousin to play
with!!

Happy Monday, everyone!
