Our new grandbaby has arrived! Cydney Dawn weighed in at 8 lbs. 1oz., 21 inches long, on Friday, July 25th at 8:20 PM. Mom and baby are doing well and Dad survived also. He's such a great Daddy. Stephen and Kodi and I all heard Cydney crying over the phone. She has a good set of lungs on her and I think this will come in handy seeing as how she has six big brothers to go home to.
Chad and Heather were coming home Saturday evening if all went well. The hospital they had the baby at is a three to four hour drive from here so we are waiting til Sunday evening to go visit them. Hopefully Heather will feel up to us coming for a little while. I can hardly wait to cuddle this new little one and tell her that her Grandma Jan loves her. Here is her first photo!
I am looking forward to Church . Stephen teaches his lesson in High Priest Group. He really studies hard for it. I'm glad I don't have to do a lesson right now. I think I'm really going to enjoy being a Family History Consultant and I'm feeling more confident about being able to help teach other people how to use the new Family Search program the Church has put out. Our Temple District is one of the first to receive it and to learn how to use it. It's still in the process of getting all the bugs worked out of it. It will be so wonderful when everyone can have access to it. I really love the new features it has on it. It's a great program!
I found new information on my great, great Grandma Magdalena this past week!! Someone who had information about her has finally posted it in the Family Search! I'm so excited. I have spent the past 10 years looking for anything I could find on her and my Mom searched even longer than that before she passed away. So this is wonderful to finally have all this new information! She is listed with her parents and siblings, and grandparents and great grandparents on both sides of her family. What a treasure!!! I would soooo love to visit with the person who had this information. I want to ask so many questions and hear whatever stories they have on her and her family. See photos if there are any. It has been such a long search. I feel myself becoming hook, line and sinkered into genealogy again and it feels good to be active in it again.
I wish you could have seen the beautiful cloud formations today and yesterday. The whole sky was just full of them. Huge, wonderful formations with blue sky in between them. I should have taken pictures. We had a 30% chance of getting rain from the remnants of Hurrican Dolly but it hasn't happened yet. I'm thinking all the cloud formations were because of that storm. If the sky is that way again tomorrow I'll have to take pics! It was amazing to see the sky that way.
Well, I hope everyone has a very happy Sunday. Remember to enjoy the simple pleasures that are all around you.
