Our Baby Is Having A Baby!

Mandy & Dusty in Hawaii!
Look pretty sneaky, don't they?

Hey Dad, Look at this box that came to my house today!

Baby Bottle???

What????? Are you trying to tell us something?

We were shocked, but oh so happy!
Our Baby is having a baby!

Mandy & Dusty are having a baby! This is their first baby. Let me introduce you to our 4th grandbaby! Look in the sidebar and you will see a picture of "Sweet Baby"! It is an unreal feeling to have your baby having a baby!
There are no words! We are so excited!
They called and told us to meet them and the rest of the family at Chili's. They said they were discouraged and just needed to be with us. So off we go to chili's.....When we got there, all our other children were there waiting. Needless to say, they were not discouraged at all! We sat down to order and our baby daughter, Mandy told her dad to look at something that was delivered to her house that day. He opened a very cute little box and in it was 2 bibs (along with other baby items) - bibs that said I love Grandpa & I love Grandma! We were shocked! We knew it would happen but were not expecting it that night. They have been married 7 years. They had several goals that they wanted to reach before starting their family. One was a trip to Hawaii. The other was to get out of debt except for their home. They are very smart. We are very proud of them!
Congrats Mandy & Dusty!
We love you both! We cannot wait!
Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old he will not depart from it.  Proverbs 22:6

Of course, I'm partial to this blog. This is so sweet Mom and exciting! Of course I cried; however, I cry over jokes these days! I can't wait to meet the baby...I think he/she will be the perfect edition to our family. This is a very exciting time in our lives and I want to thank my family for their love and support.

Mommy to be- Mandy
