    I am joining the crowd!!!

    Yes...I learned last evening that we are expecting our first grandchild...due on July 29!!!!!!!! Yay...I am going to be a grandma!!!!!!!!!!!! Everyone in the family is so excited. My daughters both were suspicious of their sis-in-law because they and their hubby/sig. others had gone to my son and DDILs for dinner and she didn't drink any wine and the comment was made by my son that she had slept all afternoon. However, when there was no announcement at Xmas we had just decided that maybe not. Anyway, DDILs parents came from OH yesterday and we all went out to dinner where the kids proceeded to give both grandmas gift bags with baby story books inside for us to keep at our houses for when baby visits! We were so excited!!! They will learn the sex of the baby on Mar. 7. Pam

    Congratulations!! Being a grandma is the best fulfilling role I've had. Enjoy all of it, your life will never be the same, but in a good way.
    To make lots of quilts, is to have lots of scraps, and I do, and I do.

    I can still remember the day our first granddaughter was born and this year she gave us our sixth great grandchild. The deepest joy keeps coming. Praise God!
