Home Again

Hubby and I got home early last night from our trip to North Carolina. We drove straight through, which is a 12 hour drive from there to where we live in northern Illinois. We missed the BIG snowstorm while we were gone. I guess we got around 16 - 18 inches of snow. We had some pretty nice weather while we were in NC. The first couple of days it was in the 60's and the rest of the week in the 40's. That was heaven compared to the temps in the 20's and below here. So it's time to get back to normal life once again. I need to get working on my Easter items to list in my etsy shop and Bucktown.

Here are a few pics I took with my digital camera while I was in NC with my daughters family.

That's me and my brand new sweet grandson! Max is such a good baby. He did a lot of sleeping while we were there. He is so much calmer then his sister was.

And here is Cora and little brother. Cora is 2 years old and has lost her top front tooth already. A couple months ago while she was at daycare she was riding a little bike and flipped over the front of the it and chipped off part of the tooth. Then a couple of weeks later it got infected like they thought it would and had to have it pulled out.

Cora holding her day old baby brother. I love, love this picture!

And here is my daughter Tara with Cora and Max. I'm so proud of my daughter, she had a home birth and did wonderfully!!

And my hubby (Grandpa) holding little Max for the first time.

That's all for now. Have a wonderful Sunday everyone!!!
