We all await with great anticipation the arrival of the newest addition to our family. It is a Csection birth scheduled for March 23 this year of 2018.

The proud parents my Great grandson Darren Wedding and Diana have two adorable boys already, Jayden 7 years old and Isaiah 3 years old. They live in Dillon Montana.

Since I, the little boys Great, great Gramma live in Sarasota Florida I have to wait for an email and picture from my daughter Meredythe to see a picture of our new baby.

She has just a few days before she and Joey hit the road to Port Clinton Ohio their summer home. Let’s have a look at this tiny baby boy named Ryker.

“How does Alaskan King Crab sound for Mother’s Day?” That was my son-in-law Tracy Drakes question. “My stomach has started smiling already.” Alaskan King Crab is my favorite entree bar non. YUM!!

My granddaughter Sarah Drake and her friend Ado have come down from Tampa area where they live and work to celebrate her mother Pamela and her grandmother me on our special day.

Sarah, always so helpful, placed a turquoise tablecloth on the lanai table and set it with heavy duty paper plates, little forks for retrieving Crab from the shells and melted butter containers resting in a rack over a tiny lighted candle.

While Tracy is steaming the large crab legs Sarah prepares a spring mix salad with her home made dressing.

In the refrigerator is a Boston creme cake topped with fruit,

Have I forgotten anything? Oh! Yes! Presents!! So we retire to the family room and first we see Pamela’s presents.

Via mail I had already received a beautiful necklace from my daughter Meredythe, it has a delicate silver chain with a tiny Yorkey dog and a tiny silver heart attached which I am wearing in these pictures.

Sarah was so kind to fasten that necklace on for me, my 95 year old fingers could not manage to do that.

See this close up…….
