~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This past Wednesday, our youngest grandson, Pierce, celebrated his 13th birthday! The entire family came into my hospital room so that I could share in the joy of watching him read his cards and open his gifts.



Here he is with his pile of presents. Notice all the Blue. Just look at that smile . . . I wonder where he gets it?

Happy Blue Monday!
