New Nephews, Thanksgiving and more!!

Hello readers!!
I hope y'all are having a blessed Christmas season!
These past couple of weeks I was in Moultrie with my dear sister Kressant, helping her out with her three precious little boys!! Jonathan is now 3 weeks old! Last I heard he already weighed 10 pounds! What a big boy, I'm sure he weighs even more now!
My family went down and we celebrated Thanksgiving with the Morton's and Campana's. What a joyous time we had with friends and family remembering those who first obeyed the Lords calling and came to this untamed land, so that we, they're descendants could be free to worship our Lord! It was a most lovely and exciting two weeks with my S'moton family!

Here is the first picture I got of dear little Jonathan, when he was only a few minutes old!!

A Grand Announcement!!!

With great rejoicing we announce the arrival of Jonathan DeWet Morton! The Lord is good! Jonathan was born early this morning around 12:53 am. Hopefully we will be able to post some pictures before too long:) He's just beautiful, weighing 8lb. 6 oz. with black hair and chubby little cheeks. Michael and Kressant are resting and praising the Lord for the precious new blessing the Lord has given them:) There are a bunch of mighty proud Grandparents, uncles, aunties, and cousins here at Calathora today. Praise our gracious and merciful God!!!

Smithy Doings

Hello Readers!
What a month we've had! Our 6th grandson (nephew) William was born, our church hosted a camp meeting, we had the P. children for a couple of weeks and the dear Smith family from Jacksonville visited us! What fun it was to fellowship with them one on one and get to know them better!
Our Tilapia came in last week! We now have 200 little fishy's (give or take a few) out in our Florida room, growing fast we hope, till we can either sell or consume them!
Today we are trying to tie up all loose ends and pack for when Kressy calls and says it's time for her little one to come! Ah, how fun!
Well, it's off to laundry for me,
God Bless and have a great day!
