Okay, this Nana wants to share with you that we have a new baby grandchild. He was born on January 29th. His name is Koen and he is beautiful! We saw him for the first time on Sunday and then again today. *SIGH* If you read my blog you already know this, but I just had to share!! Our youngest daughter and her hubby adopted him. They have two older boys, Kameron is 6 and Kooper is 4. They are very happy to have a new baby brother.

We now have 16 grandchildren. I'm loving it! The eldest is 18 and the youngest is Koen, days old. We are very blessed.

Though this isn't about hoarding or using our supplies, it is a very important part of my life, this being a Nana. It's probably the best job I've ever had! There's just something about a little one whose face lights up the moment they see you and they yell, "NANA!! IT'S NANA!!" Be still my heart...

If you haven't experienced a grandchild yet, it will be one of the best things that happens to you in life!

Please meet Koen. (Pronounce it Coe n)
