Easter and a BIG Surprise!!



We had our family Easter on Saturday.  Our son and his family came and of course, we would loved to have had our daughter and her family.  But, that 8 hour drive is just a little far for a weekend visit. Shucks!

Poppa grilled some awesome steaks and I fixed the trimmings and we ate at noon.  Afterwards we headed outside where the bunny had left eggs to be hunted.  The girls took off and had a good time finding them.  The bunny had a few surprises for them and I think he made them pretty happy.  I don't do baskets for our Grans but do ask their Moms about something they might want and I get it for them.  Guess you might say I give them an Easter gift. ~smile~

On Easter we joined the kids for worship and it was such a moving service.  



From the praise and worship to the message it was the perfect way to celebrate our Risen Savior. 




And, these two little dolls are just getting so big and they looked so precious in their Easter frocks.  I was a proud CiCi for sure. 



And, these two, well, look at those smiles!!! When I got this picture from their Momma I wanted to just reach out and grab them.  There are times that I struggle with the distance between us and yesterday was one of those days.  The Easter bunny found his way to their house too.

And, now for this...............



If you are my friend on Facebook then more than likely you already know our BIG surprise!
About 6 weeks ago our daughter called and said she had something to tell us.  Well, we all know that when our kids say that, it's generally BIG news.  And, was it ever!!!!  I guessed that they were either moving or that she was pregnant.  I was right!!!!  She will be having her 3rd child, another boy and our 5th Gran.  Folks, I'm pretty sure it was the biggest shock of my life.  No joke!  I mean, Bridget will be 40 years old in July and already has an almost 11 and almost 4 year old.  But, she and her husband had always desired to have 3 children and the Lord is granting the desire of their hearts.  I'm trying not to think about that 8 hour drive and how much older we will be with this one than with our first one. But, this will just give us all the more reason to take extra good care of ourselves so that we can enjoy this precious little guy as we have the other ones.  Bridget is doing well thus far and our prayer is that she will continue to as her past track record was tough.  Aren't those shirts just the cutest??  

And, I leave you with this..............

Clancy had a golf match this past Saturday and Coleman had such a good time enjoying the beautiful course while big brother played.  It's going to be so interesting to see if baby boy #3 has as big of a smile as his two brothers do.

Have a great week!!

  14. Hi Lea, visiting from the Preppy Empty Nester. Like you I am a nana and expecting our 8th grandchild this month. We have three boys and three girls so this is the tie breaker.lol One of our grandson's is on the Autistic Spectrum so we are learning a lot both mentally and spiritually from this trip we never planned on taking. We have been married almost 43 years and live in NoAla. So glad you got to have Easter with some of your grands. Ours are spread out so we only have two that live near us. We enjoy having the grands when it works out for the parentals.lol Have a blessed day.
