Help! My Kids are Growing Up to Fast!

My oldest daughter Lexie turned 19 on December 27. I didn't get to post about it before because her birthday was the same day we left for our trip. I can't believe Lexie is 19!!

I don't usually buy the older kids birthday gifts because between the kids and their spouses and the grandkids....I just can't keep up with all of them. I usually just cook the kids a special dinner if they request it. This year though I got Lexie a quilt from my dear friend, Val (who's birthday was yesterday!). Her Granny is 96 years old and makes these wonderful quilts. Lexie had been wanting one of Granny's quilts for a long time and I couldn't resist getting her one. The quilt is even in the color that Lexie is going to be doing her bedroom. Yay! Good choice Val!

and today is my Grandson #5,

Chad,Jr.'s, 1st Birthday!

Happy 1st Birthday Chaddy!!

Wow Happy Bithday to all of us! I am so glad that Lexie loves her Granny quilt! I can't believe that I missed this post. I haven't got to be with my Grands to get them to join Mallory's swap yet but I will try to call them about it. That is so sweet!
