Meet Baby Maxima !


Hello sweet friends!

    I'm back after a month away at Miami for the birth of our third granddaughter, which was a total blessing. God is wonderfully great!

The first child of our daughter Alexandra was born November 20th. weighing 8 pounds and 53 cmts., tall. Quite the girl!

Alexandra gave birth naturally for which I'm so happy as the recuperation is faster then a C-section.

I'm the grandma so I can say the baby is gorgeous! So there...

We were also pleasantly surprised when our DD Sofia arrived for the birth as well. We were all complete.

Here are some pics, me, this proud grammy is sharing, along with our Thanksgiving table setting and food. We had so much to be thankful for.

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving along with your dear ones and received many blessings.



And here's babyyyyy....

Here is our sweetie, baby Maxima Juliette

With her lucky parents, Alexandra and Sergio.

With grandpapa Alejandro

Of course, you know the happy grammy!

Bundle of joy with her auntie Sofie

Our Thanksgiving setting at the gorgeous apartment of Sergio's parents in Miami.

The beautiful metal reticulated chargers.

Lovely china, but I don't remember what it was.

Love the dining set and fabulous chandy

The food came out delish. I did the turkey, the salad, mashed potatoes and gravy, pecan pie and DD Alex did a delicious quinoa with pine-nuts.

We also had champagne to celebrate baby Maxima, along with some wine at dinner time.

Dessert was pumpkin cheese cake with French vanilla ice-cream.

The quinoa up front was yummy, as it was cooked in chicken broth and the regular spices, etc. I also added toasted pine nuts to give it an elegant touch.


We had so much to thank our Lord Jesus Christ... for our dear daughter Alexandra's great and smooth delivery and the gorgeous perfect baby girl.
 

Thank you so much lovely and sweet friends, I will answer the wonderful comments soon, as you know, they always make my day!

Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties.

LOVE,
FABBY

Fabby, Your granddaughter is every bit as beautiful as you and your daughters. How proud her grandpa looks holding his sweet little baby granddaughter. You must be so thrilled to be welcoming this lovely little lady into your lives. Baby Eugenia, our new little angel was born this morning. She is our tenth granddaughter and my first biological granddaughter.

It has been way too long since I have visited you. I had not posted a tablescape since last summer. I wanted to thank you again for the lovely placemats you sent me last year. They looked so pretty on our Thanksgiving table. It was good to have a pretty table to share with my family.... Candy
