Sometimes dreams do come true :)

Have you ever had a dream that came true? Yesterday I did....

About a year ago I woke up one morning and told my hubby about a dream I had that he was sitting on the couch holding
 2 baby girls dressed in pink in his arms.
 At the time, we had 4 grandsons
and no one in the family was pregnant.
 Then a few months later, our son and his wife announced that they were expecting a baby in May! 
Then 6 weeks after that our daughter and her hubby announced that they were expecting baby in June! 
And the story only gets better from there!
Both couples found out that they were having little girls!!!
Our sweet little Sofia Mae was born in May and yesterday we welcomed Evie Marie into our family!
This beautiful family of mine is my greatest treasure
 and the love we share for one another
is the greatest gift I could have ever hoped for :)
When our 3 yr old grandson, David
met his new baby sister yesterday,
he said that Evie is his best friend and he loves her. 
How can it get any better than that?

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights,
 who does not change like shifting shadows.  James 1:17

Welcome to the family Evie!
You are the fruition of a dream come true,
you are an answer to prayer,
you are truly a good and perfect gift from above!
