I'M GOING TO BE A GRANDMA!!!!



This picture was taken of Jenny and Kevin last August when they got married at our house-they are the new parents to be!!

I came home from work last night and I noticed a pink envelope on the counter that said Mom open now. John was walking Teddy so I thought I better get dinner started because our friend was coming over for dinner and he would be here at 6:30 and it was 6:05. John and Teddy came in and John asked me why I hadn't opened the card from Jenny. I said Mother's Day isn't yet but he told me it says open now. So I stop what I'm doing and open it and a little fuzzy bunny is on the card and it's says "Hi Grandma!" I open it up and Jenny had written that you are going to make a great grandma in 8 months!!! I was so happy for them!! I called them right away and she was crying I was crying!! You bet I'm getting out the knitting needles, buying some yarn and I'm getting out the sewing machine too! John and I are so happy for Jenny and Kevin (and ourselves too!!). She said she has been a little sick this week and almost passed out at work the other day. I told her to be careful and take it easy (she has a tendency to over do). So in the beginning of January I'll be a Grandma!! Can you tell I'm happy-LOL!!!

Everyone have a wonderful day!

Great news, Sherri. You'll be a wonderful Grandma (is that what you want to be called?).

Sherri said...

Thanks everyone! I can't wait to hold my grandbaby in my arms. I have a long wait though until January!!

Mary-I'm not sure what Jenny and Kevin will want the baby to call me. I was thinking Nana. My father's mother was Nana and I really liked that!

Happy @ Home said...

Congratulations to all of you!!

A GIGANTIC congratulations to you all! I'm so very happy for you. I remember that excitement when I first found out and it only gets better, Sherri.

Sherri, when I was expecting our first I asked my MIL what she would like the kids to call her. She said she'd always liked Nana. So that was it! My mom wanted Grandma and that's what they call her.

Whatever it ends up, this child will be very fortunate to have you in his/her life, that's for sure!

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
