There is so much to look forward to with this new year - I am giddy! We also welcomed the next generation into our family last night when my niece, Rachel had a baby girl, Ray-Lynn, 6 pounds, 12 ounces and 20.5 inches long. She's a beauty and I am so happy for her and Nik. She was born to two sailors on the Navy base in San Diego. Oh possibility! Life is grand! And as she stated so apropos, there will always be fireworks on her birthday!
