Welcome to Our Little One

Good Monday morning, my friends!  I have had an extremely busy and eventful weekend but not as it was originally planned.  Friday night I got "the text" was on its way.  Shortly after that, and I mean shortly, I got another text that I was a grandmother of a healthy baby boy.  He was in a big hurry to enter this world.  Yesterday we drove the two hours to the hospital and spent most of the day with the new little family.  His name is Evan David born at 5:08pm September 7, 2012 weighing 7 lbs 5 ozs.  This is the card I made to welcome our baby into the world:

I also knitted them a blanket.  It was made from Bernat Baby Blanket yarn which was extremely soft to work with.  It reminds me of a fleece blanket and I am sure it will keep our baby so warm :)

I have one other picture to share.  It is of my son, daughter-in-law and baby Evan.  My son is not a fan of social media sights and has asked me not to share pictures on line but I do have his permission to post one here:

A big CONGRATULATIONS to Mommy and Daddy. 

Thanks for stopping by today to share my big news. Things may be slowing down here at my blog for a bit as I have to pack up my little craft room for our move shortly.  I do have a couple of posts scheduled to go live but I know I won't have too much time for crafting.  I do hope to be back in action and enjoying some "sanity time for me" crafting as soon as I am settled.

Happy Monday and enjoy your week.
