Proud Great Grandparents

Elaine and I went along with Carolyn to the Hospital to see "the girls" this morning. Both were doing fine. Sadie's hair had been shampooed so she was even prettier than she was yesterday. The expression of joy on our faces reminds me of the picture taken of my folks down at cousin Ted's some years ago as Dad played his accordion, Mother was clapping to the music and the rest of us were dancing the "Flying Dutchman". Our facial expressions of unmitigated joy is only a symbol or how we really felt. It seems that the older a person is, the more they appreciate the miracle of the birth of a baby. Sadie is really a well loved little girl and has already brought unbounded joy to many. Her name appeared in lights this morning as she was Welcomed on the Home Town Bank marquees. 


  1. What a great picture of joy! Little Sadie will certainly be the center of attention from now on in your lives as well as for Carolyn & Ben and of course, Julie & John. She really has dark hair - and lots of it! We'll be anxious to see the updates and frequent pictures!

  2. Yes, I think that's a great picture! We couldn't be any happier with that little baby--she is such a sweetheart! Kind of hard to think about anything else!
