It's a girl

Last Thursday my niece and her husband had a baby girl, Christina. I went up to the hospital with my sister (the new grandmother) and sat in the waiting room for what seemed like forever. The minute I went down to grab a bite to eat the baby was born.

I don't have permission to post a picture of Christina as Tonja and Stan haven't decided if they want her photos in cyber space. You will just have to take my word for it that she is as lovely as can be.

Years ago when Tonja was in kindergarten her teacher was a friend of mine and one year for Christmas my friend framed a painting that Tonja made. On Saturday I gave it to Tonja to hang in Christina's room.

Hey, two days in a row....I'm on a roll!

take care,

Congratulations Auntie!!! How exciting!!!

I'm glad to see you posting again! I know that I've been away from mine a lot too! I did want to tell you that my daughter was offered a teaching job today! She is now a 7/8 grade science teacher at a Detroit charter school. Teaching jobs are hard to come by here in MI!!!

Enjoy the rest of your summer break!

Good morning Dawn,congratulations on the arrival of your great niece. I love that name Christina as that is my daughter's name. I'll take your word for it. Christina has to be beautiful as my Christina was my prettiest baby. She had red hair and lots of it. I bet Tonja was very pleased to hang her art work in the baby's room.
Two days in a row. Yippee!!! Dawn's back.

Love ya, Jeanne
