to my sister Carol, brother-in-law Brad and niece Beata, on the birth of Lydia Hope!  The Petry Showalter clan welcomed baby girl #2 on Thursday of last week.  I finally saw a few pictures the other day and she is really a beautiful little baby. 

Of course, I am a little sad that I not there to hold her, but we are burning through cell minutes getting updates.  I hope to get to Minnesota before too long, even if just for an extended weekend, so I can see this little one.

Prayers of praise and thanksgiving!


About Sandie

A little background: A mother of 3, two boys and a girl. Married young to a good man. No longer young, but he is still a good man. Grew up in the suburbs of Minneapolis, lived several years in small town Alaska, spent a couple years in the city of Madison, currently residing not too far from down town Anchorage. Drink a crazy amount of coffee. Fiercely loyal to my friends. Truly rabid in my defense of family. Beyond thankful that my God loves me enough to allow me to doubt and question.
