Last Friday was a busy day….no busier than usual….at least that is what I thought.

Virginia came over to make my spring boxes for my rosaries, etc. It was something we were trying to get done for a month.

She had her spring flowers all cut out and her spring scrapbooking papers all ready to go. It was just a matter of covering the boxes and making them Etsy-worthy! Aren’t they pretty?IMG_0607IMG_0609

I had no idea Virginia was having contractions while making them, so I was not a little surprised when she informed me they had been coming every 5 minutes all afternoon!

My son-in-law came over and before I could say “Nathaniel James” they were out the door! As they were leaving, I asked where they were going. My son-in-law shrugged and said, “Birth Center, I guess.”

I just had to laugh. They were in such a flurry they didn’t tell me anything…not even that I was hanging out with their kids for the evening…..grin.

We all, Virginia especially, have a good chuckle over that now.

A couple hours later I was very surprised to hear of our fifteenth grandchild’s rather speedy entrance into God’s great world! IMG_0625

Nathaniel James! Beautiful name….I had to look it up. I knew he had something to do with a fig tree.

“Philip findeth Nathanael and saith to him: We have found him of whom Moses, in the law and the prophets did write, Jesus the son of Joseph of Nazareth.

And Nathanael said to him: Can any thing of good come from Nazareth?

Philip saith to him: Come and see.

Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him and he saith of him: Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom there is no guile.

Nathanael saith to him: Whence knowest thou me?

Jesus answered and said to him: Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee.”IMG_0642 IMG_0628

A beautiful baptism followed on Sunday! Another child of God…!

IMG_0842I crocheted the Baptismal Gown 6 babies ago.IMG_0853Godmother, Theresa:IMG_0825I had to snag a picture with the boys in their vests. It turned out a little blurry but I was lucky to get what I did with 4 squirmy boys. Actually my son-in-law was more antsy. Men and pictures sometimes don’t mix. πŸ™‚Β  Little Emma was sweetly sleeping in the pew and we hadn’t the heart to wake her. (Notice her cute little Alfalfa sprout).IMG_0852-001IMG_0858And, of course, the party afterwards! We always try to find an excuse for a party!
