A Surprise & A Gorgeous Quilt

My day started out going to see this little basketball player!
Our 7 Year Old Grandson, "Brother"!

He is a great little ball player!

During the game "May May" & "Little D" came too!

After the game we were all noticing "Little D's" shirt!
Look at "Angel & Brother" reading it.

It took us all a while but then we realized what his shirt said!
"Big Brothers Rule!"

Then "Little D" told us that his
Mommy had a baby in her tummy!!!

Our 2 year old Grandson then showed
us where his baby sister or brother is!

When "Sweet Hunter" found out when our new Grandbaby was due you will not believe what he said......
(or maybe you will). He said,
"I told you girls not to plan anything during deer season!!!!"
We laughed & laughed. He is so funny!

I didn't even notice this beautiful quilt at the church
where the ballgame was until we got through taking pictures.
Can you see the Cross? 
I just thought this was amazing considering
that I was just thinking how very blessed our little family is.
4 Grandchildren and one on the way.
We are so excited and so very blessed.

Today I am thankful for .................blessings!

Val, congratulations of the new baby. You have such a sweet family. It's a man thing, deer season that is. Our daughter who is now 28 was born on her Dad's birthday. I will never forget he had an out of town hunting trip planned for the next day, the night I went into labor. I still remember him calling to cancel just before she was born. She was born 2 months to the day early and neither of us was prepared. He still kids her about ruining a good hunting trip.

Wow!! I am so excited for you!! Funny thing, I was reading his shirt in that first pic where you are kissing him thinking he isn't a big brother...

We've been trying to get Brendia to have us another baby but she just won't get on board. We spoil Baby Isaac to death. If she doesn't have another one soon he'll be impossible to live with.

Granny said...

What exciting news! That response from Sweet Hunter is so funny. He'll just have to miss a day or two of hunting this fall won't he? That was a cute way to announce the new baby. One more grandbaby for you to spoil. What fun.

The quilt is gorgeous.

First of all...congratulations! Nothing is more exciting than new babies. Second, that's exactly what my husband would have said. Except he would add fishing season, football season, etc. I'm not sure when our girls could have had one that would have been "no season." And third, that quilt is simply stunning. Someone did some amazing work. blessings, marlene
