Happy Birthday "LIttle Groundhog"

Boy doesn't time fly. Nine years ago my little granddaughter was born, I was in nursing school and had to miss that day for her birth. My instructor told me I couldn't miss that they could page me in the hospital when she was about to be born. I said, "but you don't understand." my daughter is high risk and a diabetic and I need to be there." Being the hard core instructor that she was, she still said no. I just said, "I am sorry, but I am missing, my family is more important than having an unexcused absence from school."   And it was so funny being the student that I was, I was going behind all the nurses rechecking everything, counting the drips of the IV's and everything, it was the mom coming out of me. He He Then at approx. 5:30 that eve. my daughter
had the most beautiful baby girl. Babies born from diabetic moms are called tomatoe faces, they do have a really round red face, which goes away in a few days. They also can be born with low blood sugars and jaundice, which goes away also. She is a miracle girl as well as her brother, both were thought to have kidney problems before birth, but they are both healthy. I am so thankful for that.
  Well where has these nine years gone. My daughter always has to have these elaborate parties for her
children and puts her whole heart into them. So yesterday while Riley's parents were getting ready for the
fashion show party with nine little girls spending the night. I was having a fun day with my granddaughter.
My greatest calling is being a grandma. I love my three grand children so much, and they are each special and unique.So a few picture from our fun day.

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
