Numbers 14 and 20...two important numbers.

Today was a big day at our house. First off it is our 20th anniversary. Where did all those years go? They have been good years.

Next we had grand baby number 14. Andy and Lynne had a BIG baby boy. He was 9 lbs and 4 oz. Where did she have him hidden? Grandpa Jeff delivered him. We have had the unique and very special experience of being present for the births of all but one grandchild. They tell us his name will be Jacob. Just when Elmo was starting to grow on us.

As you can see Jacob is nearly the size of Ava. She is not sure what to think of having a brother.

Grandma Mary and the kids.

Look below at the whole family. Oh boy are they in for some adventures. I need some of those kids energy.

What a beautiful baby boy...and so healthy! I think it must be really special for Dr. Jeff to get to deliver his own grandchildren. WOW!

I'm still not over the sadness that I missed his delivery by 48 hours. It's just not fair. We are so happy to see his pics on here. You and Jeff are lucky, indeed. Magan and I were discussing how it is so bizarre that all of us girls have been cut off at 2 kids, but the boys seem to be into the kiddo thing and they are going to get them all! Who woulda thunk?!

Welcome to the crazy Family. I have to cry a little every time a new little baby is born so exciting, Grant wants me to point out how happy he is to have the title of being #1. Just think 20 years has brought a lot more people to love and be loved. Life is in deed good!
