Exciting NEWS


How fun was the phone call just last evening when I discovered that my youngest son Jeff and his wife Rachel are going to have a baby...in December. (See them in the photo above on the left, other couple is my son Dan and wife Tina who are visiting right now, with me in the middle back.)  Rachel's a neonatal nurse and will be having her own baby to take care of. This will be grandchild #6 for me plus my 16 step grandchildren when I married their grandfather or papa makes 22 grandchildren. Wow all this when I didn't get to be a grandmother until the twins were adopted 11 years ago which made me a grandmother for the first time at age 58. Everything comes to those who wait...

New grandbabies are always fun and exciting.

Unfortunately, I'm done. My sons tell me that my grandchild score will always be 6. Oh well, six grandchildren from just two sons isn't bad at the "multiply and replenish" idea. Another new baby would be nice though. I'll just have to enjoy those of my nieces and nephews.

Yippie!! I'm so happy for Jeff and Rachel! A Christmas baby? Or is it due early in the month? How fun to have Jeff and Rachel stop by when Dan and Tina were there. Tina has such a happy, friendly grin...

22 grandchildren... wow! I may never have more than four. Chandi is sure she and John have completed their family and I have four boys who don't date. Cordell has had a girlfriends for the last couple of years... but, now he's in Korea where dating prospects are slim and none. Actually, I learned today that Dustin is seeing someone right now. A girl that's been crazy about him for years. He's going to give it a chance and see where it goes.

Anyway... I'm losing focus here. Congratulations Grannie. Dont you just hate that name? It makes me cringe...Grannie. Sounds like ya ought to be wearin a price tag on yur hat. Remember that?

I am so jealous, Lin. I have only one and it's likely to stay that way. Sigh.... You have such beautiful grandchildren, lucky you.
