Yesterday we had our son, his wife and their babies Abby and Eli for Easter dinner, as well as our second-youngest daughter with her husband (they got married last year in June).

When I went to sit down, suddenly there was this large, colourful Easter basket sitting on my plate! I was a little startled, since nobody ever gives me Easter presents.

When I asked if it was for me, and how come, Janet said, "Well, are you going to open it?" So, I opened the large plastic egg that was sitting in the Easter grass. And found a pair of cute little leather baby slippers. First I didn't know why the heck somebody was giving me baby slippers! But when I read the note attached to them, which read "Guess who is coming to Thanksgiving Dinner?" I FINALLY clued in!

What a cute and original way of letting me know that our tenth grandchild is on the way!

2006 was a baby year, with three granddaughters, one in May, one in August and one in December. I guess this is going to be another baby year. Eli came in February, and another one is coming in October. Now I wonder about my oldest daughter......... she has five, but can't handle not having a baby around, and her baby will be two in August.

Our second oldest has two little girls (22 months and eight months), and they are saying that is definitely enough for them. We'll see.


I am a German citizen, married to a Canadian 29 years, four daughters, one son, seven granddaughters and four grandsons, with one more grandchild on the way in July 2009.
