Announcing our Matti (yes, I know I am late with this)

I had to wait till all the kids friends were told! But here it is now - 

Our hearts overflow with praise to God!
He has given us a GrandDAUGHTER to love, to hold, to teach, to read to, to kiss boo-boos
to sing with, to laugh with, to bake with, to watch grow Lord willing from babyhood till WE her poppa and granny are old and grey!!

She is absolutely beautiful.  Fearfully and wonderfully made!
She is our 1st GrandDAUGHTER, and our 4th Grandchild.
She is the 1st child for our "baby" daughter Ashley and son-in-law Michael Thiessen.
She is a new cousin for Jay (who is in Heaven) and Everett (who thinks she is cute) and Roger (who will grow up with a cousin born in the same year as he is!)

She is Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice as the nursery rhyme goes.  But most of all - she is a gift from God!  We praise Him!

Meet our little bundle of sweetness:
Matilda Joy (Matti)
born 3:58 AM on Wednesday, November 14, 2012
weighing 8 lbs 3 ounces 
(almost identical to her mom, who was 2 ounces bigger)
and she is 20 inches long.

Mom, Dad and Matilda Joy are all doing well!!  
They are very very very HAPPY.
And Poppa and Granny - we are celebrating too!

Here is our little one - BRING ON THE PINK!!

"fearfully and wonderfully made"
To God be the Glory!
Our hearts overflow with thanksgiving for the grandchildren He has given us!
