It's a Boy and a Boy and a Girl!

I am now a grandmother of triplets!

I know, I know, I kept it quite a secret. Well I actually didn't find out myself until this afternoon when Teen called to let me know.

You've heard of or watched that show "I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant"? I didn't know I was going to be a grandmother. Apparently Teen knew for a few weeks that this great event was going to happen, but failed to share it with his parents.

So without further adieu, here is the first picture of the triplets:

From left to right they are my grand-eggs: Thomas Edward, Jayden Michael and Samatha Marie. They are all healthy and just beautiful.

Teen made the crib himself and the blanket they are using was his kerchief from prom.

We are so proud of these little buggers...errr...eggs.

And I even got to babysit them tonight while Teen finished his Christmas shopping. Aren't I a lucky grandma!

Fake Birthday

Last weekend we went to my parents "Other House" to celebrate Little S's birthday. My parents have a time share that they have the first week in December every year. We usually go there for the weekend with them and celebrate his birthday early. He will turn 7 on Dec 17 and since it is so close to Christmas we try to make a big deal about it early in the month.
Little S had a hard time when he was littler trying to figure out the whole time share thing and celebrating his birthday more than once. So it became a big joke that we were going to the other house to celebrate his 'Fake Birthday" since it wasn't on the right day.
This is the cake we got him this year: As you know from several posts here he LOVES his big trucks. And every year for his birthday my parents get him a new one.
Here he is opening a small present from grandma and grandpa. Hmmm....why is it so small? A truck certainly can't fit in that box.
Or could it? In case you can't read see what it says:
Little S, Here is a Fake Truck for your Fake Birthday!
He thought it was funny, until he realized that there wasn't a big truck.
But Grandma and Grandpa wouldn't disappoint him like that, they soon brought his real present out for him.

You can tell by the look on his face that he loves his big trucks!

Today was bound to be a good day cause when I woke up this morning we had SNOW!!!!

I absolutely love the snow. And a fresh blanket of snow just makes everything right.

I don't mind driving in it, I don't mind walking in it and I don't mind sitting on the couch curled up with my favorite blanket a cup of hot chocolate or coffee and watching the snow fall.

As the snow melts it can make a dirty muddy mess. Then suddenly a storm moves in and we are covered again by a fresh white blanket of snow making everything clean and fresh again.

It reminds me that no matter how much of a mess we make, no matter what the storm, it is all covered by Him.

Isaiah 1:18 tells us: Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.

This is just one more reason why winter is my favorite season.
