Wow! When it rains, it pours. We can't have just one thing at a time in our life--we have to have everything happen at once! And we've had so much rain I feel like my feet should be webbed! It's been awhile since I posted (my New Years' resolution already broken), but for a very good reason--too much going on to have the time to post. It's a good thing, though. God continues to bless us.
We're having a new grandchild--a girl!! After 12 grandchildren, only 3 of them girls, we're getting another granddaughter! I think it's our turn to have a girl in the family, and God is good. We're all so excited, we can't wait to hold her, love her, and play with her. I've already started knitting and planning for the quilt(s). I knitted a red blanket before I knew she was a girl, knowing that she would be attending NCSU Wolfpack football games, rooting for the home team. She will be stylin'!!
Next, we're having a wedding! My son David will be married to Ashley on May 2. They are an adorable couple, and we are so happy for them. Plans for the wedding are sailing along, rehearsal dinner is all set. David almost missed the shower due to a cancelled flight out of LaGuardia airport into Raleigh, but he managed to rent a car and drive straight home. He was about half an hour late for the shower, but at least he made it safe and sound! We were all glad to see him arrive. They received many nice gifts from friends and family, including this quilt made by Ashley's grandmother. It is signed by family members.
Many out-of-town family members will attend the wedding, including my parents from Oklahoma, two grandchildren from New York (Kate and Greg), and my son and his family from Florida. It will be a great reunion!
Happy Easter! We're planning to attend the sunrise service at our son's church in Eli Whitney on Easter morning and then we'll spend the day with him and his family. I'm looking forward to eating salmon for lunch, the first meat I will have eaten since the beginning of Lent. I hope your Easter is blessed.
