Mother's Day....

Thank goodness for today's new gadgets. When our first grandchild was born 15 years ago, I didn't have the wonderful I-Pad 2. There were videos made but we waited until there was enough footage on it and then it was mailed to us in North Carolina from Oklahoma. It was wonderful to get these tapes and enjoy seeing each baby grow(all three). Now, here in 2011, we can see everything as it is happening.
The other Sunday night, our son called and wanted me to call them on the I-Pad. A friend of theirs had given them three boxes of baby boy clothes. They wanted me to watch them open up the boxes and see each thing as they took it out. Wow! That was wonderful. They were blessed with the nicest clothes that looked like new and some had not been worn. They also gave me a tour of the nursery.
Last week they went for a 3D/4D ultrasound and were given an invitation to come back today for a free session. They took Linh's mom with them and called us on the I-Pad so that we could see it as it was being done. This was a Mother's Day gift for me and Elaine. Of course we thought the baby was beautiful. He didn't want to wake up but we got to see his face and his hands crossed on his tummy. We thought he looked like his dad. Well, June 26 will be here soon and then we can see him in person again via I-Pad. Because of our physical problems, we will not be able to go to California to see him in person but the I-Pad is the next best thing.
I want to wish all of you a wonderful Mother's Day.

  5. Hi Marie!! What a nice comment you left for me! I miss you too!!!!! We don't have internet at our new house and since we are still maintaining our other house until it sell, we are encountering LOTS of expenses! So, hopefully we can get our internet hooked up very soon! We are going to do without tv for a while...which is ok except that I will miss 19 Kids and Counting and Masterpiece Theatre! Hope to talk to you again soon!! Blessings, Beth

  6. June 26th is right around the corner now - you must be so excited! Yes, modern technology is absolutely wonderful! So glad you can use it to spend time with and share memories with loved ones. :)
