A Blessed Event

It was 17 years ago today that I welcomed my first grandchildren...yes, plural! Twins Steven Marshall and Leslie Chapin were born to Kenzie and Gary on a bone-chilling January 14, 1992.  It was 2 long weeks before I met them face to face, lying in their little baby chairs on the hearth in the upstairs living room.  Holding back tears, I tip-toed closer to marvel at their beauty.  Kenzie and Gary were very calm and cool, I thought.  They still are! (smile)  And, of course, Steve and Leslie have surpassed all expectations (read great kids)!  I am very proud of them.


  1. Happy 17, Les and Steve! woooo-hooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
