Better by the (two) dozen!

Did I tell you I am a grandmother! My twenty-fourth grandchild arrived this weekend! That's right--#24. But when you have raised 10 kids, that's not too many! Little Ada Margaret arrived late Saturday night -- a home birth. She has a brother and sister. Brother, Roman 4 yrs, sang to her: "Happy Birthday" and brought flowers to mommy and to little Ada.

She is positively beautiful! Congrats to you and your family. I thought 10 was a lot of grands, how do you keep track?

Marlene--It's very hard. I keep a spread sheet of all the birthdays and anniversaries of all my kids, their spouses b-days, and all my grandkids! I used to remember all the dates, but not anymore!

I'm reeling over the #. Astounded. You are blessed with so much, and I'm sure one of those things is patience!
