Rejoicing!!!

Oh my goodness!!  I just can't believe it is Monday again!!  Time goes by so fast! 

This last week we had some joyful news in our family.  I am an Auntie again!!  Yay!!!  My sister had a beautiful baby girl on Tuesday morning.  This sweet little girl has been a miracle from the very beginning and we are utterly delighted that she is finally snuggled up in her Mama's arms!  My sister and her dear husband have waited for years for a baby of their own and God surprised them with this sweet little girl when they least expected it!!  He is so good!!!

I have been working madly on a baby blanket every chance I got and except for a bit of trouble on the border (which my dear friend who taught me to crochet - and blog :0) rescued me from) I finally finished it and it will be in the mail tomorrow!!  I can't wait for my sweet new niece to be snuggled all up in it - it will be a hug from her auntie since I can't be there in person to give her a little cuddle!!
I had enough yarn to do a tiny hat to match
Oh I so hope to meet this wee one before she gets too big!!  I am rejoicing today for my sister and brother-in-love!!  God is so good!!

Blessings,
Christine
