On November 25th, 2012, our 19th grand baby was born in Washington, Iowa.   Her name is Grace Anne Hunger.  Her parents are Jeny Hunger, our youngest child, and Dennis Hunger.  Grace was born at 9:23 pm and weighed 8 lbs. 12 oz and is 21 1/2 inches long.  

What a welcome addition Grace Anne is to our family.  Thanks to the blessing of skype, we were able to see Grace just minutes after she was born.  It has been a challenge to be so far away from this sweet little family during this important time. Jeny has been so kind to send daily snap shots of the baby by email.  Brenda, our oldest and her 9 year old daughter Gwen, traveled from Nevada to Iowa to help with the baby.  Brenda also sent many pictures of the baby and activities with the family during the week they were there.  We have been so blessed to be able to share in these happy times from so far away.  Technology is wonderful!!

Beautiful baby Grace Anne

Sarah, Gwen, and Emma made lots of crafts during the week
Andrew and Jared also enjoyed making the crafts, but were not interested in the picture/taking part.

Pretty in pink!!
