The Babies are Here!!

Introducing baby Steven and baby Andrew! Steven is the blondie, Andrew has darker hair.

Not enough words to express the wonder of these beautiful new children. Just a few photos, and I will be back when I am better able to express myself! :)

Typical tourist photos

Yes, I just had to post these!!! Why do tourists always feel the need to bore everybody with their vacation photos???

No babies yet....

My grandtwins were originally scheduled to be delivered by c-section on June 26th, but there was "no room at the inn." (The newborn ICU was full.) So, the delivery date has been moved to Friday.

It would have been a great anniversary gift for Arthur and I, as we celebrated number 3 on the 26th. But, healthy mommy and babies is the most important thing right now.

We have been vacationing our way to New England, and it looks like our arrival is going to be timed perfectly with the babies coming home. We plan to help Jim and Tiff with the cooking and housework to give them plenty of time with the babies, and in the evening we will relax in the hot tub at the Holiday Inn. That's my idea of a perfect vacation!

Anyway, in the meantime... Niagara Falls awaits us in the morning! :)

Getting closer to GRANDMA time!!!

Jim and Tiff's twins have been scheduled to be born by C-section on June 26, 2007. That is also mine and Arthur's third anniversary! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to us! :)

Today we had a small (just the family) baby shower for them. That makes it a bit more real for me... wow! I can't wait to hold the precious little boys.

An old Kodak moment

Now that I am soon to become a grandmother times two, my thoughts have gone back to my own kids' baby days. I need to dig up some baby photos of Jimmy, but they are very scarce. That was back in the days when film and developing were a luxury. Come to think of it, back then plastic wrap was a luxury. Bread bags worked just fine. OK, I'm digressing...!

I don't need photos to know he was the prettiest baby ever born. After all, he was my first miracle. I will find a photo to scan soon. But for now, here is a photo of Miracle Two, and Miracle Three!

Anybody who knows me understands what pride and love I have for my children. But today I miss my babies.

It's JUNE!

I love June!

Only good things happen to me in June.

My day lilies are blooming! (I'm sharing them with you: here they are!)

Summer break is a big event which begins in June. The kids and I now are officially off for the summer!

My mom's birthday was June 1st, and the family is getting together this weekend to celebrate it with her.

My twin grandbabies are expected this month.

Best of all... my wedding anniversary with Arthur is coming up in 3 weeks. We renewed our wedding vows along with the other June couples at our church last Sunday, and as we said the words I couldn't believe it has already been three years. He is such a blessing to me.

May everybody have a wonderful June!
