~DNA TESTING NEEDED ?~

Good Morning girls ! well here we are with the benign of a new week with Easter just around the corner...Today is also Sally's Blue Monday please go by and see all the wonderful blues for the day click Here !! Now!! you guys are probably thinking why the DNA posting from Gloria today have she gone over the top...Well let me introduce you to my Grandson Joshua...Just love this Picture of him and his chunky little legs...I called him grandma's "Chunky Monkey" He was so cute and one of those babies that you loved to kiss...well at least his Mama and I did...Joshua is now 27 years old, and as he grew up I always called him Joshie which I still do...He is one of the finest young men I have ever met...Serviced 5 years in the Marines, Never ever gave his Mother one minute of trouble...even as a kid he would come and spend summer's with me and I just loved having his company...he would come with his older Brother Bobby and every day Joshie would tell Bobby the same thing...put the toilet seat down Bobby, so Grandma don't fall in at night ha ha!!

So let me introduce you to Joshie as a baby...Got to love a "Fat Boy" 3 months old..


Now this is my sweetie Kyra...She I think all of blogland knows by now...This is Kyra at 3 months I just loved how her parents dressed her in BLUE Overall's to look like her Daddy !! is she not the spitting image of her Daddy? I don't think we need any DNA testing done here Girls!! What do you think girls should we have her tested??

Kyra is always smiling just like her Daddy does...She have now had 2 heart surgeries, had 3 feeding tubes put in her tummy and 5 esophagus surgeries...Every Friday she has another one done at Children Hospital in Dallas Tx and will have until she can eat on her own....You can see more of this sweet Kyra on my slide show...she really is our little miracle baby...I thank God every day for this special gift !!


Thank you for coming by and seeing my little family today... Now my Grandson Jacob found out he 'll be stationed in Texas YAHOO!! we are so glad of that..he'll be state side...
Also Today is my Daughter Gina's Birthday she is Joshie Mama and Kyra's Grandma...Happy Birthday Gina..your Mama love you , see you on Easter...WOW!! 47.

May all you have a safe and Blessed day...I know I'm Blessed.
Hugs and smiles Glria

Gloria, That Kyra is one cutie patootie and I see where she get her cuteness.
I will continue my prayers for you and your family. Great news about your grandson being stationed state side. Rusty (my son) just got the news last week he will be stationed at Camp Lejuene in North Carolina. He is happy to be leaving the cold winter north of Chicago and will be near the beach, sand and sunshine.

Have a happy day

Kris
