{Exciting News}

Grandchildren fill a space in your heart that you never knew was empty. 


The Lord has surely blessed our family with these five sweet kids and as you know we are getting a 6th sweet grandbaby. 

Baby Starr is due May 29th. So exciting! My daughter and soninlove had a small family gathering for the gender reveal and needless to say the anticipation was high.


 My niece made the cake and it was just simply adorable.



 

My daughter wanted to keep it simple since the holidays are jammed packed with so much going on so coffee, hot chocolate, and cake was served and it was perfect for the Christmas holiday season. 


 My daughter chose to reveal the gender with a Christmas tree. She had pink and blue ornaments along with pink and blue lights on the tree. Of course no one knew what color of lights would come on until the lighting of the tree.


I think you could safely say once the tree was lit that.........


IT'S A GIRL!  




We are very excited and looking forward to another sweet grand. Of course our one and only grandson feels out numbered for sure with all these gals in the family.


This sweet girl will be the best big sister. 



We are looking forward to #6. 

Grandchildren make the world a little softer, a little kinder, and a little warmer. 

God is good!
Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  1. Cindy, I love this post. We do love our grands. The young man will have to watch over all those girls. So he will be their hero. :) I thought the cake , coffee, and cocoa was a perfect refreshment for the gathering. Blessings to all, xoxo, Susie

  8. Congratulations Cindy! There's just nothing like grandchildren, and another sweet little girl is such a gift. I know your grandson was probably voting in his heart for a boy, but I'm sure he'll be excited as everyone else when little Starr is born.
    Your family is so good looking! But I'm sure you hear that all the time. God bless you and yours through this precious time of waiting for the birth of our Savior. He has done great things for us...and holy is his name!

    1. Ceil, my grandson was in so hopes it was a boy. The age difference is a lot but he still wanted a boy as on both sides of his family is nothing but girl cousins. But as Susie said, he will be these girls hero.

  17. Oh my goodness, congrats to you and your beautiful family on this wonderful news. My gosh your daughter - a mother of five and one on the way is jaw-dropping gorgeous. She looks no older than her children! : - )

    I love the grimace on the soninlove with the reveal haha - you know he was hoping he and his only son would have more testosterone in their corner - but there's nothing like doting gals to spoil you rotten. I know they both know that, haha.

    Wow - what a truly delightful party - I love all their awesome ideas. How on earth did your daughter find the time and energy to conjure up such a neat party? Love every detail.

    I will keep them all in my prayers and pray for all good things come May for them.

    Hugs. ♥
