"Mini Mack " has arrived :)

As you all know, we have been calling my niece's baby "Mini Mack" when we found out she was carring a boy..... Well, on the 27th of September at 1:22pm Braeden Thomas McCarville has arrived..... He weighed 8lbs. and 14oz. and  he was 20 1/2" long.... Lisa and John and Braeden are all doing fine....The balloon above this picture was given to my sister at work when Lisa and John found out that they were going to have a boy.... He is such a beautiful baby.... It is a great feeling to become a Great Aunt, and to have a baby in the family.... Debbie and I are so proud of all three of them and Debbie is now a Grandma for the 1st time...Congraulations to all... :)
