August 20th & 25th 2009

I have heard a lot of people indicate that they thought 2009 was going to be a really good year. Well, I have evidence that it will indeed be a GREAT year in my family. Joe and I found out tonight that we are going to be grandparents again! Isn't that fabulous?

Actually we have known since Christmas Day when Amy, my oldest who lives in Ohio and has these beautiful babes


told us on the phone that she is pregnant again and due on August 25th. They wanted to have their kids close together so I'd say that have achieved their goal! Afterwards my son-in-law Jeremy is having a snip snip appointment. What a man!

So, as you can all see, 2009 is going to be a great year. Oh, I almost forgot. Guess what else?


Hey Aunt Amy?



AUNT AMY!!! Oh, sorry Abby. What is it?

Mommy's going to have a baby sister and we're going to call her Hannah. And if it's a boy mommy is going to take him back!

Seriously folks, both girls are pregnant and due within 5 days of each other! Beth (Abby's mommy) is due August 20th and Amy is due August 25th!! Whoo Hooo! Grandmother is a happy camper!

WOW that is hard core! I don't know if I could do babies that close together, especially when the first set was twins. Well I think I wouldn't survived a twin pregnancy anyway so that would have been a moot point huh?
Congratulations! You're family is really going for it this year aren't they?

WOW! What fortunate babies to have such wonderful Grandma! Very happy for you all.

Karen said...

Great news all around! Abby is going to be THE CUTEST big sister. I bet she's so excited (well, if it's a girl. But I'm sure she'd get used to the other, too!)

Congratulations, Grandma!

Congratulations! It's going to be an exciting year. And a hot time for a couple of pregnant ladies. Nothing like a summer due date to make your feet swell.

Even though I am praying grandbabies are a LONG way off for me, I can see where grandmommyness would be the best!!

Can my mom borrow one or two of your grandkids? She won't leave me alone about starting a family and she's driving me NUTS! She just can't get it through her head that no babies are ever going to be coming out of me. Knock on wood.

Bill said...

Well, that is great news! I'm sure everyone is very excited.

I'm confused, though, as usual. Why is Jeremy waiting until summer to get his hair cut?

Congratulations, TB.

August is a great month. My birthday (8/16) and my oldest son (8/13) and my youngest son (8/1) all fall in August.

Congratulations granny. I can't wait until I have a grandbaby. Well, actually I CAN wait. Another 10 years at least preferably.

Jen said...

How wonderful! You will be so torn on where to go...but I'm so excited to be on this journey with you.

Congrats! So excited for you! You are a good gma!
You asked where my mom got me my cowgirl bling purse. She purchased it at a boot store that is going out of business, which is why it was marked down. I will see if I can find one someplace online and send you the link, but it was not a "brand name" purse so there is little to go on. In fact, it was "made in china." Oh well.

Okay, here are a couple of links to similar looking handbags. I was going to send you an email but couldn't find an address! :)
