Katherine Grace

The last month or so has just felt blah. Not really down, blah, just nothing interesting to say or report. February tends to be that way. Well, I finally have fun things to say! My sister-in-law, Mindy, delivered a new member of the family yesterday. Katherine Grace Schwartz was born to Matt and Mindy. Sounds like she's going to be known as Katie Grace. My Grandma Schwartz was a Katie. I certainly approve.

Here 's Katie bonding with Mindy. I hear she has quite a lot of blonde hair under than little pink hat.
Daddy's learning to multi-task. That's good. I'm sure he's going to need to do lots more of that.

The whole family......after a night of rest. Labor started around 10pm Sunday night, but Katie Grace didn't show her face until 7:08pm on Monday. Long day! Needless to say, Mom and Dad were ready for a night's sleep.
I'm looking forward to making a trip to meet her soon and to give proper congratulations to her parents!

In other news........I had to make a quick trip to Sturgis this morning. I got lucky enough to downstaff from work, so that's why I had the time to go. I went through town a different way than normal. I'm glad I did because I saw an amusing sign. Here it is.

We're doing the Biggest Loser at work. First place wins just over $1000. I'm thinking that stopping in for this "meeting" might be a little counter productive. Do you suppose many people went for the weigh-in then stuck around for lunch today?

This is a bit on the random side, but on the way back to Fort Wayne, I saw this truck. My first thought was that it was a very bright green. Then I realized that with a little imagination, it looked a bit like Shrek rolling down the road. I don't know. My imagination was working overtime. I had a lot of time in the car to get bored. Yes, I realize I could get in trouble for taking this one while I was driving. :) I was at a stoplight when I took the one of the sign. I sure do like having a camera small enough to keep in my purse.
Finally.........there aren't little people in my house to provide a quote of the day, but I have a new word for the day. The bulk of my day today was spent gathering supplies needed to make a gift for Katie. I'm not the best seamstress ever, but I'm going to give it a shot. My cousin Mary is quite possibly the best seamstress ever. I have called and emailed her more than once already today asking questions. At one point I wrote that I was confused. As I read back through to make sure my question made sense, I realized that I had written that I was confusted. What's that? Confused, frustrated, disgusted, it's a bust? Not sure, but I decided that maybe it makes the point more clearly than intended.

Ha! It does look like Shrek. My boys are watching Shrek 2 tonight. So I was right there with you. :)

Little Katie Grace is beautiful and Matt and Mindy look so proud, it all makes me want to cry. I love it!

I enjoyed the new pictures and reading about your new niece, seeing the family of three--my congratulations to all of you. I wish your Dad could see his new little granddaughter! I thought of him right away. Do you have my e-mail address? I lost yours when my computer crashed. Send me a note when you have time-I have a few questions for you. thanks!
