The most exciting thing that happened in February was the gender reveal party for our 7th grandchild. Who ever thought up these parties, was so smart. This is the 4th gender reveal party we have attended for a grandchild and each party was so much fun. Currently we have 5 boys and 1 girl.
And it is a girl!!! Her name is Victoria. I love that name!
There are many ways to reveal the gender. For this party, my son bought 2 gender reveal kits at a sporting goods store. When the target was shot by my son, the powder that rose up was pink. I guess this is a typical southern way of doing things. HaHaHa!
It was so exciting! The gender was sealed up in an envelope by the ultrasound technician. So my son-in-law was given the envelope and he chose the correct target and set it up. So not even the parents knew until the pink cloud rose up.
I'm trying to decide what kind of girl's baby quilt to make. I already have lots of girl's fabric and I bought some more after I found out a girl was on the way. I'll also be making burp cloths and other things.
Another thing that happened in February is that I had a milestone birthday..... I am now 60 years old! Not sure how that happened, but it did. And I'm ok with that. I saw a picture of myself when I was about 14 years old recently, and I wouldn't want to go back to those days. I love my life now! Yes, I could have done some things differently and made some smarter choices. But, the things I have experienced have helped make me who I am today.
I want to work every day toward being the best version of myself. This means being as intentional with my time as I can.
Another milestone for February... I have worked at my current job for 30 years! My coworkers gave me a small party, with balloons, bakery treats, a framed certificate and card.
Well those are the most important things that happened in February, 2018 in my life!
One last picture. Spring is on the way! This is the field behind my house. The farmers plant a cover crop in the winter and its always so beautiful to me.
This picture made me think about the song, "The green, green grass of home".
Have a great day!
