A trip to visit the little guy.

Last weekend, the blacksmith and I made a fast trip to Oklahoma. The 6 plus hour drive seemed shorter, knowing that we would soon be holding this little guy.

Grandpa does seem to get more than his share of holding though!

I took my sewing machine along  to make this self binding quilt. Watch the video and then go make one. It takes 7/8 and 1 1/8 yard of coordinated flannel. Thanks Margie for sharing this video with me.

Here is C man on his new soft blanket.

He wasn't so fond of his bath. The next day this grandma bought him the old fashioned kind of baby bath tub. Only now days they are new-fangled.  They have a drain plug in the bottom. No more spills carrying the baby tub to pour it out.

Grandpa went to the Oklahoma City gun show both of the days that we were there. On the second day he brought C man home his first camouflage outfit!

I spent a lot of time doing this! 

Please say a prayer for the family as Mom returns to work tomorrow. Separation will be hard on them both.

I've made several of those flannel blankies. Super easy and nice for winter.

Congrats on your new grand! We have seven so I know how hard it is to leave them behind when you go home, although none of ours are that far away. Came by from StitchenByTheLake.

Those are the sweetest pictures! Nothing like holding the sweetness of a new grandchild:) Many thoughts to the family as they grow through this transition...there is nothing more difficult than letting go and moving forward. That child has so much love surrounding him, the light makes his future bright! All is good:)
