Sometimes we run our mouth, and we should be thinking.

The other day I made a blog entry about stuff. I mentioned There may be some surprises in my wallet but not much, now she wants to know where and how much. Huh and I was saving that $62 for something special. LOL (I have more, ha!)

We have some exciting things down the road in our family. Sherece ‘The Grand daughter’ is expecting a baby girl in February.

Remember when you did not know what the pregnancy was going to bring. The old wives would say, “She is carrying it low, it is going to be a boy.”

One lady said hang a threaded needle over the belly and if it swung counter clockwise it was going to be a girl.  No one knew exactly what to prepare for. Except for me, I knew they were Boys. LOL. BUT there was always some mystery to a pregnancy.

Now they can even tell if the infant is healthy. Somethings are good.

Then the Twins are doing something…

And ate cookies  BUT now it is a CD!

And, Stephen and Josh Darnell our twins, are finally going to produce a CD of their original music. They have the copywrite on all of them now and are ready for the production. They are very talented and we are extremely proud of them.

I have mentioned we have coffee and share a biscuit with jelly most Sunday mornings at McDonalds. My girl knows coffee, and she says McDonalds has great coffee. While in Florida we are close to Orlando. The McDonalds we go to sometimes, is at the very end (north) of the Florida turnpike. I people watch while there.

All nationalities go to Disney/MGM in Orlando. I love to watch them. Most are in and out quick, getting on up the road after a few days of entertainment in Orlando. Walk the dogs, get the birds out, let the cat out.

Some are there just for the restroom but most are there for the Big Breakfast, faster and cheaper than the restaurants. Young couples, kissing and smooching in line, they cannot keep their hands off each other. I always point that out to Sherry and she always reminds me, “You are not 21!” OUCH.

Thanks for coming by the log.

I have said this before, I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you. There is a difference.

Congrats on the new baby coming into your family. Kids always brighten our day and it's great to see some of yours. Enjoy your biscuit tomorrow morning. I'll be thinking of you both sitting there where it's warm people watching.

oh yes being 21 years of age was fun ! wishing you all the very best for the new family member; and a good sunday too.


Pregnant girls used to come to my grandpa to find out if they were having a boy or girl. He was born with a veil, so he could predict such things. And he was 100% accurate. The family will be blessed with the birth of this newborn. I will be thinking of you... people watching at Mcdonalds. As for all that hugging and kissing in the lines. Sounds like my hubby and I. He's going on 73. So a little loving is nice whatever your age. LOL. Take care.

Congrats to Sherece and the family for the new baby in February! Always a blessing! And congrats to the twins for their music endeavors! I remember my mom saying when she had us kids, the moms were put to sleep; they would wake up in the recovery room asking what they had, boy or girl. Lots have changed over the years!!

Nice that there will be a new addition to the family in February.

I never had McDonald's coffee. I will have to try it. I usually head for Dunkin Donuts but the best coffee is my Keurig Brewing Machine. Perfect cup every time!

Heavy down pour of rain woke me up in the middle of the night.

Hugs, Rose

Congratulations to the twins! That is quite an achivement and you two wonderful grandparents must be so very proud of them :)
And, a new baby girl arrival, your Valentine this
coming February, exciting stuff going on.
You two keep kissing and hugging, the way I remember when we first met-- y'all were in your early twenties. Times may have been tight with finances, however there was no shortage of display of affection in your lives!!!

Sounds like there is a little excitement in your life. A new baby coming. The twins all set to go. I have never had McDonalds coffee but I have heard it is very good.. Joe is the coffee drinker in the family. I don't know how your kids could help but have loving relationships with the example you 2 set.
