Well, although a bit shy about joining the outside world, Owen James Genereux was coaxed to leave the comfort of his mom's womb and join the living world at 2:30 am this morning. The little fella weighed in at 7 lbs and 20 inches in length. He, his mom and his dad are all well.

With some severe winter storms rolling over the Rocky Mountains, the planned drive to visit with them in Edmonton is on hold. With Owen's delayed arrival into the world, our travel window has been seriously shortened. As new parents, Deni and Courtney need some alone time with their new baby. There is a period of adjustment - and rest - that they badly need.
Because our return flight to the US southwest is for very early Sunday morning, our turn around time to drive out for a visit would be limiting...or nearly impossible. A snowstorm in the Rocky Mountains could delay our return. To fly there and back would only give us one day, or two days at best, for a visit. We collectively felt it best to wait for their visit to the Palm Springs area, this March, to enjoy our first family visit.

We now have a 3rd grand child to look forward to. With two grand sons, a new grand daughter is an exciting thought. So we look forward to that in the next month. Our family dynamics are truly changing early on in 2014. What a treat!!!
The telephone and Text Messaging has been consuming our time....but what a fun way to burn time! We were 'Face Timing' Jeanette's mom when her telephone rang and it was our son calling his grandmother to announce the birth of her newest great grandchild. This is the look on her face (photo below) when she learned of the news from Deni.
|Mary is one very, very happy great grandmother!!!!!|
Thanks for dropping by.
