Meet Me On Monday…I Have Some Wonderful News!

Time to join Java for her Monday meme.  Here are this week’s questions:

1. What is your favorite food?  I can’t think of one food that is my favorite–but I’ll say “cake” because I have a hard time passing up a piece of cake–of any kind!
2. What color scheme is your bedroom?  khaki and burgundy
3. Do you carry a donor card?  No.  I have this crazy fear of being “killed off” for my body parts. 
4. In your opinion, is the glass half empty or half full?  Funny that you should ask, because I wrote a post about this once.  If we’re  literally talking about a glass of liquid, I view the glass as  half empty–and I worry about running out of drink with my meal.  However, if we’re  referring to my view on life, I see the glass as half full.
5. Vanilla or Chocolate?  definitely chocolate!

Weekend wrap-up:

If you are  regular reader here, you know that our youngest son (and last single child) got married this past Saturday.  The past week has been a flurry of excitement and preparation, culminating in the wedding and reception held on June 25th.  The newlyweds safely arrived to their cruise ship on Sunday afternoon, and called yesterday to let us know.  We appreciated hearing from them!

Most of yesterday was spent, resting and reflecting on the events of the past two days.    Our other two children, and their families came over at lunch to eat left-overs from the rehearsal dinner with us.  We spent the afternoon watching some video of the wedding, and looking at the pictures that I had taken over the past two days.  I’ll be sharing some of those later this week.

Sunday evening, my husband and I were sitting at the kitchen table eating supper alone, when our oldest son and his family came back for a second visit.  They grabbed plates, and joined in finishing off the last of the lasagna and strawberry trifle. 

Our youngest grandchild, Caden, was rambling around in the kitchen while his mother fixed his plate.  I noticed that he had on a new-looking t-shirt that I didn’t recall seeing before.  I always enjoy reading the front of his little shirts, so I called him over so I could see what was written on his shirt.  Here is what I saw…

Wow!   I so wish I had a photo of my face when I finished reading Cade’s shirt!!!  I was caught totally by surprise!  The expectant couple has known about the pregnancy for eight weeks, but kept the news to themselves!!!  Christina didn’t want to distract from Brad and Jennifer’s wedding.  How considerate was that?! 

Christina is creative and very thoughtful.  She has announced both of her pregnancies to us in unique ways.  After reading Cade’s shirt, and letting me get over the thrill of the news for a bit, she presented me with the (above) photo of Cade, along with an ultrasound of the new baby. 

The funniest thing about all of this was that earlier in the day, when family had been gathered around, I was trying to get Cade to let me rock him.  Of course, he doesn’t have time for rocking, and I was lamenting because I don’t have anymore babies to rock!  Cade’s parents didn’t say a thing!  Around New Year’s Day, things will change, and once again, I’ll have another baby to rock!  Our family is growing!   Life is good.

Have a great Monday, y’all!  I know I will!
