Exciting Sunday Lunch

Yes, I know this is Wednesday...

I was just going to tell you about our Sunday lunch. Since we were in Tusla we got to go to Church with the kids - except for our youngest daughter and her husband, they go on Saturday night because they are volunteers for that service. After church we all went to lunch - well, there is ANOTHER exception - our 2nd son and his family were not able to come because of prior commitments. BUT, almost all of the family was there.

It was fun to be able to sit around and laugh and talk.

In the midst of the lively conversation, our oldest son brought out his iphone. He was checking to make sure that he had all the information in it about birthdays. In September we have FOUR birthdays to celebrate. One is our new son-in-law and the next one we celebrate is my birthday.

Well, he was going through the year, confirming birthdays... he said, "and Kate's is March 28 and OUR baby's birthday is March 28... and just kept on like he had not dropped a bomb on us...

We all just sat there and then his beautiful wife, handed me a picture of the sonogram showing the little "peanut" and said, "here, Grandmama!"

Then, I lost it! I just cried and we all laughed and couldn't believe it! They have kept it a secret for 3 months!

Here are the happy expectant parents!

The funny thing is - I have had a baby blanket crocheted for a LONG time just for them. I have brought it with me on every visit "just in case" we got news. They will celebrate their 8th anniversary in November. But, of course, this trip, I did NOT bring the blanket! of all times... Oh well... it's in the mail!

We are celebrating our 4th grandbaby. YIPPEE!!!! God's goodness is overwhelming as our family keeps growing.
