Patience is a virtue....

I'm workin' on it....honest! But my long wait is over, more ways than one!!!  In less than a week, this........
 can turn into this *VBS* My newest darlin' and brand new granddaughter, Hailey Marie. Don't ya just LOVE those pudgy cheeks? *VBS* I'm so proud!
 These three all dressed in their Christmas finery for the picture, are her 'full time' brothers and sister. Two more brothers are there every other weekend. Little Zander, in the front, is last April's model. Kala will be 3 this month, and big brother Quenten will turn 9 in Sept.
 I came across this awhile back, pretty much says it all! And I'll add "AMEN".

I think (hope) I will be without grandchildren for at least another 5 years... not ready! 8-)
I made my mother a grandma at 45. I'm 48 and it is tooooo soooon! 8-)
I know! I know! It is not my decision!

She is wonderful, and with all those boys to keep in line, she will be a handful, I bet!

I agree with the little "first 40 years." Oldest son just turned 40 in April, so does that mean it will get easy now? Yeah, sure........don't I wish.

Hailey is just gorgeous! Lovely pics of the children.
I think the next 40 years are not going any easier than the first... but at least I probably won't be around for some of them! LOL.

Beautiful baby girl,I can not believe her birth weight! Big baby!!! Hope her and Mom are doing ok. All of the other children are just as cute!
Both our children are older than "the first 40", so tell me again, when does it get easy ????
