Sitting here working and my husband comes to the door and tells me has a surprise for me! In walks my son and daughter-in-law! I AM SO HAPPY!!! Needless to say, I was expecting to pick them up at the airport next week, so they got me! LOL, but I am so not complaining!
Win a T-shirt and cookbook, simply by choosing your favorite out of the below names!!! I will draw a winner on June 14, 2009, which will be the Dad's 20th birthday! You get one entry for a girl's name choice and one entry for a boy's name choice. The choices were put up on a poll by the soon to be Mom (my beautiful daughter-in-law!!!)
GIRLS A. Aubrey B. Alyssa C. Amberlin D. Analeigh E. McKinley F. McKayla
BOYS A. Gavin B. Daylon C. Dakota D. Brawley E. Brody F. Braylon
I chose McKinley and Brody, although I would prefer Breck for a girl, LOL, unless it is twins, then my choice would be McKinley and McKayla for girls and I would have to think for twin boys names. My dil's grandmother is a twin, so maybe.... Give me a great UNIQUE name and I will give you another entry. It has to be something unique and different!
I am very excited about becoming a Granny! I loved my Grannies dearly and they were both amazing women and my mom is the best Granny in the world (as I am sure all of her grandchildren would attest to, although she is called JoJo, thanks to her oldest grandson). I am very honored to be joining the ELITE women called Granny (grandma, maw maw, nana, etc...)! You all know I am a part of the weight loss group over at WAHM Addicts, (which is a sister site of www.wahmaddicts.com) and I intend to further my goals so I can be in great shape to help take care of my first little grandbaby. All of you who know me, know how excited I am about this new addition to our family. Due on Christmas Day, so BAM, there is my Mother's Day present and my Christmas present all wrapped into one. WOO HOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, GREAT NEWS!!! I am going to be a granny, WOO HOO! I am so excited I can barely stand it! My son and daughter-in-law called earlier and told me! What a FANTASTIC Mother's Day present! I am hoping for beautiful twin redheaded granddaughters. My DIL's grandma is a twin, so maybe.... Brock said I could name them and he also said he would mail me the baby via airmail and let me have it. (No, not really, you would just have to understand that this has been a running joke between me and my boys for a long time.) LOL. He knows (well, who doesnt know???) how bad I have wanted a grandbaby. I told him if it was a boy, we would take it back and he said if I spoil him/her, they wont let me see him/her. My husband is laughing at me because I am already looking at car seats and strollers (yes, we went to the mall a little bit ago) and everything else I can think of. I have attached my first purchase as a Granny! Of course, my other 2 boys are excited about becoming uncles.
