Great News!

Well, this Grandma of Many keeps growing and being blessed. We have been on a trip and just found out that our 31st grandchild is on the way. Troy and Heather, congratulations! We are so excited for you and will be praying for a great pregnancy. Time is getting soon for Tami and we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of her 8th child around April 27th. She is doing great and looking great. I had the blessing of taking Tami, Alex, Collin, Anna and Cassie to a blue grass academy called Wintergrass in Washington. We didn't get much sleep but it was amazing to watch what they learn and to hear from many great bands. The day we returned home, I had 3 hours to get ready for a road tour for Mannatech. Ken and I went to Chattanooga, TN where we got to also visit with Hugh's Mom, Carmelita, and his sister, Carmann and Todd and their two children Samuel and Rhianna. I apologize if I spelled the names wrong. We then went to Baton Rouge, Louisianna and had a great group there and finally to Little Rock, Arkansas where I am right now. We will be heading home in a few hours and I am looking forward to seeing everyone. I've tried to keep up with the blogs while I was gone and I am so happy I can keep in touch this way. I love you all. Mom, Grandma Dot, Sister, Aunt etc.
