This little group of four is certainly a FAMILY! It's a rainy Sunday morning and I'm just thinking about my daughter Angie and her family. It is such a blessing for me and for her father to see her become a family, after so many years of praying and just hoping.

She helped me on Friday take down all Papa's Christmas things. My sister is sick and the job fell on me. I have just had a time this January getting things done and getting back to normal. Ang was so sweet to offer to help me. Grandpa Jimmy kept Otto. Our family had retail stores for years and the girls and I always had fun working together. It felt like old times! Angie works quickly, much quicker than her old mama! Thank you Angie!

So my SIL kept calling and wanted us all to go to dinner after he picked up Miss Ava. So we ended up at Wong's King Seafood Restaurant. The food is superior and Chris just knows what to order...yum.

The VERY PROUD mommy and daddy. Otto is just easy to take and the little guy just goes along with it all. He's growing  and changing every week!

I just love the way Chris loves his just shows on his face! Ava is so good with her little brother. She is a good big sister.

Grandpa Jimmy with his grandkids. I don't think this guy could be much happier either! Miss Ava was being funny with the bunny ears.

Ah yes, Grandma Linda was in heaven with the little ones. I just love them both! Sweet little blessings of the perfect kind. Being with the kids and grandkids sure makes the January blues disappear.

It's a new year, so out with the old and in with the new!

Your life is full and blessed. Don't look back, just look ahead to the many blessings in your life.

No more January blues, 'ya hear!?

I so enjoy your posts, you write so well and I feel like I have just read a loving story of family and traditions. January is a blue month for many of us even when the sun is shining. It is a bit of letdown after Christmas. But as you say the little ones brighten up our spirits!
