I am home and baby news!

Some of you may remember we were waiting for a new Granddaughter when we left. You guessed it, she decided to show up after we left. At first Grandma was a basket case, then she just accepted it and enjoyed the trip. Her name is Makiya and she was born last Thursday at 9:19 am. She was almost a week late and only weighed 5 lbs. 14 oz. She is such a tiny little thing. Her Mom showed up at the hospital at 6 am and didn't even have time for an epidural. She is an angel and I have spent the last couple days and even a couple nights snuggling and getting to know her. Makiya and Grandma are tight already. ;)
I just spent a fantastic week in Pennsylvania and New York City. After our trade show, we were able to drive part way to Diane Zechman and have lunch with her and her sweet husband. We went to Red Lobster and the food and company was amazing. After lunch we took some pics and then found a Michaels nearby and went shopping. Our husband's were so sweet and even went in the store with us. Diane made me this super cute notebook. Thank you Diane for the adorable notebook and for the memories. It was so fantastic to finally meet after all these months of planning it.
