Happy Tuesday everyone!
It is so hard to believe next week we will already be celebrating Thanksgiving and believe me when I tell you,
 we have a lot to be thankful for.
It has been a looong year for our family. Since April, when our home got severely damaged by that horrible hail storm, all we have done is work, work, work.
But, even then, we have tried to focus on the many blessings in our life, like our grandson.

When we thought we were never going to be grandparents, this little guys came into this world and changed 
our lives forever.
It seems it was yesterday we brought him home from the hospital after a huge scare during his birth.

 We are so thankful we were there to see him smile for 
the first time.

 To be able to celebrate his first Thanksgiving and Christmas with our little angel.

We are so happy to have been there to watch him turn one year old.

 And now that he is a big boy, he even helped his mom and dad move into their new home last April.

 But this little boy is getting ready now for the biggest job he will ever have to do.

 I can finally announce to the world, WE ARE GOING TO BE GRANDPARENTS AGAIN! :)
We have known for several weeks now and we will find out the day before Thanksgiving if it is a boy or girl.

We are so overjoyed with these news and can NOT wait to have another little one in my arms again, so this year will end for us with the anticipation of becoming grandparents again. YAY!
Our new grandbaby will be here next April, and if it happens to be a little girl, I have already apologized to our son and DIL in advanced for the amount of shopping this grandma plans to do. LOL

Thank you all for visiting and enjoy the rest of your day.
Until next time!


  1. Congratulations, Maria Elena! That's so exciting! I know you are bursting with joy! Hope you get your wish for a grandbaby girl - but either one will be showered with love, love, love!

  2. He's a handsome little boy! And lucky to have such a doting grandma.

  3. Congrats Maria Elena! How exciting for you! I enjoyed seeing the pics of your grandson "growing up" - he is so cute! For sure, you will have a blessed Thanksgiving appreciating all you have to be thankful for. Enjoy!

  4. Such a handsome boy! And congrats on another grandbaby!!! I know that makes you so very happy! xoxo

  5. Oh, Maria! Congratulations on your beautiful little boy! I'm so glad you'll get to spend Thanksgiving with him! You are blessed, my friend and I hope you're doing well.

  7. How exciting! Your grandson is so precious. What a smile! I know you will be so thrilled to welcome another little Texan. :)

  8. How lucky you are to be able to spend so much time with that handsome boy! Congratulations on your news...babies are wonderful!

  9. Well congratulations Maria. I am so so SSSSSOOOOO jealous. We have 3 sons and not one grandchild. Enjoy those babies and remember me when you do.

    1. Thank you so much! My kids have never been in a hurry to have babies either. It got to the point I never thought I would be a grandmother. And here we are, expecting our second grandbaby. :) Enjoy your day!

  10. Hooray- congratulations! I'm just getting used to being a grandma (8 weeks now)! Your grandson is adorable and I imagine you feel so blessed every time you see him! You will have even more to celebrate at Thanksgiving now!

  11. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What wonderful news - you are so blessed!!

  12. What a precious sweet boy! And, congratulations on more love coming into your family ... lots to be thankful for this Thanksgiving!

  13. That is truly wonderful news, Maria Elena, and I am so very happy for you! You should do all of those "grandmother things" and enjoy every minute, because they do grow up so fast. My arms are feeling kind of empty these days since our youngest grand is 5 & 3/4 (just ask her, she came up with the number). As eager as I might be for my next stage, being a great-gramma, I am not at all eager for my oldest granddaughters to become mothers....I hope they wait a few years!

    Warm hugs,

  14. He is precious! Indeed a blessing to have a sweet little one. We are still waiting to be grandparents and pray for that to happen someday! Happy Thanksgiving!

  15. Congratulations to the parents and grandparents !! Baby is so big and adorable now... and yes, he's going to be BIG brother soon too ! Such blessings Maria Elena. Like you say, when we look at God's miracles in these grandchildren we rest in piece.
    Many blessings to all the family this Thanksgiving.

  16. What wonderful news, Maria, and by now you know if it's a boy or girl. I hope you won't keep us hanging to long! Congratulations!
