Good news

We have very good news in our family: our second oldest daughter had baby girl (her second) on Dec. 2nd!

An hour before delivery, the name Astrid beamed into our son-in-law’s mind and that is the name she came into the world with. I checked ‘Wikipedia’, there it describes it originating from a Germanic – Nordic source, meaning ‘Divine Beauty’. I’m thrilled!

Although she was due on Dec.26, she arrived earlier, on a day where a snow storm had slowed the traffic and the ride to the hospital that would take 30 minutes, took an hour. Fortunately everything went easy and well and they were home after 24 hours. We are relieved to know that she is healthy and fit, also thankful for the joy that she brings us.

In gratitude,

Very dear Xenia,
