Training has begun!

Last week while I was helping Nikki with the girls, Eli was practicing his hitting. He loves to play ball and it really shows how much he enjoys his new "Better Batter Baseball" machine.

Mammie just loves watching him play.

The Long Wait is Over!!!

Friday, June 19 may not have been remarkable for most of you but for the Finley family it certainly was. The occasion was greatly anticipated and turned out to be everything we were hoping and praying for. Both our beautiful grandaughters arrived healthy and Mom held up great through the C-section.

Here are both girls after they had their baths. Dad and I watched closely to what went on in the nursery.

The new (and improved) Puckett Family.

Mammie meets the girls.

These have to be the proudest Aunt and Uncle in the world!!

Of course, big brother is totally amazed by his sisters.

Mammie and Pawpaw with their "Grand" Children.

And then finally, introducing:
Annabel June (on the left) and Harper Naomi (on the right).

The most wonderful part of age and time: GRANDCHILDREN.

TWINS!!!

Just couldn't pass up an opportunity to let my blogger contacts know that Nikki and Josh now have two beautiful girls born Friday June 19, at 3:22 and 3:23 p.m. Annabel weighed in at 6lb 6oz and 20 inches long and Harper weighed 6lb 4oz and 19 1/2 inches long. Both girls are healthy and Nikki is experiencing some pain but hopefully that will get better by tomorrow.

Pictures, and lots of them, will be sent soon.

2009 Achievements

Ron and I are very fortunate to have another "family" in our lives. Not related by blood but by love only. This year, Angie graduated from Dalton College with a teaching degree and Jenny (my namesake) was promoted to the 6th grade. This family is very special to us and we are so proud of their accomplishments.

Birthday 2009

I can't believe Burt and I have had another birthday. The years seem to go by so fast. Here are pics from the birthday brunch Burt and I shared (with Ron and Christy) at the Chattanoogan. The food was great and afterwards we got to SKYPE with Nikki and family. What could be better than being with my family.


The week after my birthday, my BFF's from Franklin, TN and Cartersville, GA came and spent the day with me. What a wonderful suprise. We spent the day just visiting and eating!

How lucky am I to have such thoughtful friends!

The Small Things

We have all read or heard of the book "Don't Sweat the Small Stuff" but what usually happens is we forget to appreciate the small stuff.

When Burt and Nikki were small, they were always bringing in "Bouquets" to Momma.

This is my first beautiful bouquet from Eli.

Thank God for children/grandchildren and the small things.
