Hubby and I have Often asked just When they were going to get pregnant...Aaron's Mom and Dad (Ken & Deb) have been "pawing the ground", waiting.LOL....So, since we all figured it was a lost cause...we quit warting. At the lunch table everyone gathers around for the prayer and then the question was asked of Gerald (birthday boy...stay with me now!) by Aaron, if he would feel "greater"(as in Great Great Grandfather) in 8 months than he did today??? I'm just standing there trying to figure out what the heck That meant....I look at Hubby(who is grinning ear to ear), then Aaron(Innocent look on face)...and I STILL don't get it!!Hahahaaa.......Then I see Kathleen's Face!! Good Lord! That little Tart!LOLHahaaa.....She had me Going earlier because I Swear...I had Just asked the...when-will-baby-be-coming questions and She answered them like a flipping PRO! Big Innocent eyes..."Oh no, Not yet...not ready....." lines....Hahahaa....Tart!! It was just a FUN day....We're SO happy for them all!! There's Nothing like a new life blessing this old world. They bring So much love when they come. SO, Congratulations again little loves.... SO, that was Our Sunday...I've already got "shopping" plans being plotted in my mind....A Big old Drum set 'ya say????Hahaaaa.....Night All!

Congratulations to your father in law! I couldn't believe that he is 83! He looks younger.
I must think of my mother, she is 92, but she didn't look that old.
When she was 90, a neighbour asked her if she was sure about her age, ha ha....
And yes, I SAW the bee in the flower.
Enjoy this birthday, and have a nice week!
