Blizzard baby brightens grandparents' day

This just in (our out?) . . . and impossible to resist even though it has zero to do with the Civil War:

The little girl in the picture is Lucy Marie Pride, born at 12:08 a.m. today. She is the daughter of Misha and Jessica Pride, our son and daughter-in-law. Lucy weighs 7 pounds, 15 ounces, stands (well, not really) 21 inches and doesn't say much yet (although she is brilliant).

Lucy is our fifth grandchild, third granddaughter. As soon as we shovel out, we're going to pay her a visit.


  1. Congrats Mike to you and your family. I like the mention of this being this being "5th" Grandchild. I'm sure you know what I mean.

    A heart "huzzah" to Lucy Marie!

  2. Be careful on the drive there, Dad!

  3. Dave has the right idea - take Lucy an outfit of Union blue - OK, with pink ruffles!;-)
