The cat is out of the bag

The cat is out of the bag.  It’s officially NO LONGER A SECRET.  I am going to be a grandma again


and Dan is going to be a grandpa once more!!! 

We can hardly wait.  Charlie calls us MawMaw and NeeNee.  Dan’s official answer is,”I don’t care what he calls us, just so long as he calls….”

Katie and Chad are expecting a baby in late June.  Her due date is actually about the same time as our 32nd anniversary.  Charlie will be three in March.  Just the right age to be a BIG BROTHER!!

We feel so incredibly blessed. Raising our children was an awesome adventure.  But as a parent, it was such a juggling act to keep all the balls in the air at one time.  Working full time, housework, laundry, discipline, homework, sibling rivalry, family committment, etc, etc.  But when Charlie comes around, all of those “have-to’s” just sort of slip away and we just sit on the floor and play with him.  It’s the luxury of not being totally responsible all the time.  Anyway, we are so excited about the prospect of another little baby to love (spoil).  Charlie is convinced its a girl.  We find ourselves referring to the baby as a “she.”  I have a closet full of baby girl clothes upstairs.  But we have had so much fun with our Charlie-Boy that I have NO preference about the sex.  We are praying for a healthy baby and for Katie’s back to heal.



Loving on Grandbaby Numero Uno!!


 Thank you to all the friends and family that are praying for this baby-to-be!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!
