We love Grandparents!

God knew what He was doing when He made grandparents. Over the past two years we have found how important it is for a family to have grandparents be active in their lives. I am so grateful that God has given us two great sets of grandparents and healthy, active great-grandparents as well! They have helped us so much in keeping Samuel when we needed it, or offering David and I support emotionally, physically, and mentally. We know that they pray for us and our children, which is vital in the Christian faith. My parents and David's mom have been great these past few days in helping us adjust to Emma's arrival. And we know that if Dixon were here, he would have a huge bow on the door and stork out in the front yard! My father has done an excellent job in taking care of Samuel while mama was at the hospital with Emma and me, which I am sure was a very busy task with a 21month old. We are fortunate that David's grandparents are active in our lives as well. They offer us wisdom and comfort that comes through a life time full of experiences. Below are a few pictures of them with Emma, helping us celebrate new life. Some are at the hospital, and as you can see in the bottom, mama came home with us to help with whatever we needed. She has helped cook, clean, feed Emma, keep Samuel, offer emotional support to me, pray, and much much much more! Thank you to our parents and grandparents for everything!
