Wonderful Weekend

Last weekend we headed down to Georgia for a belated Christmas visit.  Our original plans to visit the weekend before Christmas were put on hold since some folks were sick.  But the wait was worth it.  We had such a wonderful time sharing Clara with Mama K, Daddy Bob and her great-grandparents Mema and Papa.  I can't express what joy it brought me to watch her get loved and doted on and to see her reciprocate with obvious adoration and affection for these four folks.  There aren't many great-grandparents, well in their 80s, who will get down on the floor and play with a great granddaughter like this.  I've always said how fortunate Robert is to have grown up with these remarkable people.  My heart is so full to watch them share in Clara's life, too.  It is a blessing indeed.  And so I took 306 pictures.  Don't worry, I won't make you look at them all.  But I did have a hard time whittling it down.  So, settle on in....here they are!

That outfit says, "I love going to Grandma's."  I think she does...

Papa got accused of being a "baby hog," but this girl sure did love being in his arms...

Here's Clara practicing her hands-free standing with Papa:

 Mama K's magazines were the best for tearing up....

Clara loved this little Clara-sized rocking chair.
 Rocking her blabla doll, sometimes by the pigtail.

Lots of snuggles...

And lots of reading..

And these amazing great grandparents weren't afraid to get down on the floor to try out Clara's music table...

Mama K snuck in some snuggles of her own...


Till next time, Elberton family.  We love you and are thankful for you.


  1. Wow .... 2 wonderful families to love this precious and very fortunate Clara Mae .... with the Davis and Hardy clans combined, NOTHING is impossible!!!! Love to ALL of you!

  2. I nearly imploded from the cuteness factor!

  3. So sweet. Great-Grandparents are the best!

  4. Chrissy, You guys probably don't know me, but I grew up in Elberton, and I graduated one year ahead of Robert. I know his father from all his time at Pool's clothing store. I have been following your blog for a while now, and I just want to say how very very happy I am for you guys! All you have done for Clara to bring her to this point is amazing. I am so glad God has answered all of our prayers to heal your little one. I just wanted to give you some encouragement and say that your posts bring such joy to me! I love hearing about her accomplishments and seeing all of the wonderful pictures! Thanks for sharing them all!

  5. Well I certainly can see why you had trouble whittling the pictures down, they are adorable. She is such a special baby. I love looking at pictures of her, she's always so happy and seems to be so content. I really had to laugh at the picture with her "special face", the one she's doing her mouth different. I've seen one other picture of the cute face. It's so precious ! Love to Clara and her family !
