Black & White Wednesday


Here it is Black & White Wednesday already! Check out Lisa's blog for more!

Thank you so much for your kind comments and congrats about the birth of Granddaughter Jane. I'll bet you thought I might have a photo of Baby Jane up today. Wish I did! Unfortunately, due to the terrible, awful, no good, very bad weather we've been having, we haven't been able to get there to meet little Miss Jane yet. To say that we are disappointed is a big understatement. I cried last Sunday when we were supposed to go meet her, but couldn't (that sounds kind of silly now, but I was really heart-broken)! The horrible windy and blowing snow and white-out conditions prevented us from getting on the road. And, although I was so disappointed, at least we weren't one of the hundreds of cars that ended up in the ditch (or worse) that day. Hoping to meet the sweet baby soon. I've heard all kinds of good reports about her and the photos that her parents have sent show her to be an incredibly cute girl with dark hair like her Daddy!

Anyhoo, back to Black & White Wednesday, here is Miss Maddy from December, 2008, reading one of her favorite books. That Junie B is funny, but sometimes a bit naughty!

I love this picture! Her hair looks so sophisticated and she looks like she's leading a life of leisure.

Congratulations on your granddaughter. I can't wait for you to be able to hold her and take LOTS of pictures...

Blessings~

Love Junie B. books, but yes, sometimes a bit naughty for sure :) What a beautiful photo. And congrats on your granddaughter. I bet you are bursting to go see her!!! Hopefully soon!

Kim said...

This weather is perfect for curling up with a good book but I am so sorry it has prevented you from meeting Miss Jane. I hope you will be able to hold her and spoil her very soon!

That doesn't sound silly at all... I would have cried, too! I can't wait to see photos because that means you'll have been able to HOLD her.

(And do any of the J's read "Ivy and Bean?" The Tongginator actually loves those more than Junie B., but nobody seems to have heard of them.)

What a sweet "real life" photo. It makes me long for bedtime when I can read a goodnight story to my girls!

Congrats on the new baby girl!!!

Adorable picture of Miss. Maddy and her JB book. JB always puts a smile on my girlie's face too!


Boo-hoo Janet...I will cry with you...I'm sorry the weather isn't cooperating. I know how hard this is, I guess it'll be ever more the sweeter when you actually hold that baby Jane in your arms.

My two oldest girls love Junie B. Jones books! You are right she is funny, but also naughty!

Gail said...

Love this one of your sweet girl and her book. I can tell Maddy and Grace would be fast friends for many reasons.

I'm sorry you haven't been able to see your baby grandaughter, hoping it is very soon, Janet! hugs to you, I would have cried too!!!

Kim said...

Oh, Janet I'm so sorry you weren't able to visit little Jane. I figured for sure you were spending the weekend together. That darn snow!! I'll pray for warm weather this weekend for ya. I'd be crying too!

Maddy is so cute!! Gotta love June B. Jones books!

Jodee Leader said...

Cute picture of M! Junie B. would be a perfect fit for our family! Our kids have been wild Indians lately! Hurry up, spring! We can't take much more cabin fever around here!

Donna said...

Such a sweet pose!

We have a 21 year old son who is still (hopefully) years away from giving us grandkids but I found myself feeling a weird connection to your story of being unable to travel to meet your newest family member. What a special time for your family and I know it must have broken your heart not to be there immediately.

Hopefully in time for next week's B&W Wednesday!

I love this shot of Maddy because she looks so natural, so at ease, so relaxed. I'm so happy all is well with your grandbaby and I sure hope it won't be too much longer until you can hold her. :)

Missy said...

Love Miss Maddy reading Junie B. Oh how I love that Junie and yes, she is naughty :)
Well, I would be in tears, too, about not seeing the baby. However, she needs her grandmommy safe and sound, so I am glad you waited. I cannot WAIT to see pics of the princess :)

Jean said...

Little Miss Maddy is so cute, in bed with her book!

Looking forward to seeing your adorable baby Jane!
Lucky you! God is not going to let me have a grandchild for awhile- so I just keep bringing home more precious babies!!

So cute as usual....and what a sweet smile as she reads..if only I could get my son to be that radiant when I ask him to read...
What is your secret? Perhaps it is a boy/girl thing..as my girlies do not give a bit of trouble in this department...oh MY....I got my work cut out for me..lol..
