on Life and Creating.....REALLY

So you know how I usually post artwork and such and then go on to say that's there's nothing new in my life otherwise?? Well not this weekend! Say hello to my 1st grandbaby!

Ok so it looks a bit like an alien at this point but that's ok - I'll love him/her/it no matter what!!!! My daughter and son-in-law had us and his parents over for dinner last night (not terribly unusual) and thanked us for helping them through the last few months (son-in-law just graduated nursing school and was job hunting so that was nice of them to thank us) and then after dinner, each set of parents were given a gift box - ok, this isn't necessary but well, let's see what's inside - and there was a small photo album entitled All About Grandkids with 2 ultrasound pics inside!! I didn't see this coming at all!! (and I'm usually pretty intuitive)
So needless to say, we are thrilled! We will be grandparents come May 09 - woohoo!!!!! Now THAT's Life and Creating!
Hope you had a great weekend too!

Mary congrats! It is so much fun having grandkids. Our Susie and her hubby told us by giving us a gift too. Each of our bibs had I Love Grandma and I Love Grandpa. It was so cute. Enjoy the journey!
