Brooklyn arrives, finally.......

After going to hospital with contractions on three different occasions and being sent home; spending the night on one of them, finally on December 3rd, the real deal happened. Induced at 6:12 and she arrived at 11:09 p.m. Beautiful as can be! 7# 10 1/2 oz. and 21 1/2" long. Tons of hair and looks exactly like big brother, AJ. Couldn't be happier with another girl finally, after a five boy streak!

Christmas cards

Here are my cards this year using all Close to My Heart products. I made 74 of them and still had to use a handful of store bought. Keep saying I am cutting down.
Six weeks since I blogged, really! I was very busy this year at the post office during the Christmas rush with Angie on maternity leave and Gene hiding in his office being the only clerk left. We had to borrow the new gal, Terri, from a neighboring office who was brand new so she had to learn to jump right in. Wish I had started my projects earlier as always! Here are the stockings I made this year. One for my brand new granddaughter, Brooklyn Kennedy Mouradian and one for my brand new great-nephew, Jase Mathew Barney. I wanted to get a couple more done for spouses in the family but couldn't find the time this year so hopefully by next year. Maybe on the plane next month to sunny Florida!
