90 years

My Grandma Snyder turned 90 years old a couple of weeks ago.  You know how some people tend to get mean and ornery as they get older?  My grandma is the opposite.  She's one of the sweetest people I know.  We're having a big 90th birthday celebration in a couple of weeks and I am sooo excited!  All 6 of her kids will be there and a lot of their children, and a lot of THEIR will be a lot of people.  I think she told me that Joshua was her 70th great-grandchild, and there have been a few more since he was born.  

My Aunt Christine has been putting together her history (along with my grandpa's).  It is almost done and I am so excited to read it.  I got to read a few pages when I was at her house the other day and it made me so happy!  I tried to upload a picture taken of the 2 of them in 1937 by a Model A, but it isn't working quite yet.

Here's a picture of Joshua with his great-grandma.  And a little present the dog gave Joshua while we were there!

Welcome Nathaniel!!

Okay, so I know this seems a little redundant, but Justin and I BOTH had sisters who were pregnant.  And now they both AREN'T!  We have already welcomed Penny, but now we need to welcome Nathaniel into the family!  I am a couple days late, because I was waiting to see if I could get a picture of him to post.  He was born at 12:29 a.m. (eastern time) on April 15th.  He also weighed 7 lbs. 4 oz. and I am assuming he is very cute, but I really don't know yet!  :)

Penelope Jane Sparks

Our niece, Penny, was born at 3:11 a.m. this morning.  She is so beautiful!  Joshua loves her already.  She was 7 lbs. 4 oz. and has dark hair, just like Joshua did!  Now if our Evans nephew would just hurry up...  
Oh, and I put up the first picture mostly so people could see my new haircut.  I tried to upload a picture the other day, but it wouldn't let me.  It's a lot shorter than I was anticipating, but I have really liked it!
