The news from the home front...

is only mildly interesting and not terribly noteworthy. Lucky me, the Christmas presents keep on rolling in...better late than never and ever so welcome! This one arrived on Friday. They are very tasty and I do love fruit!
 My black watermelon with a tail and ears continues to stay as mild mannered and understated as an old pair of shoes. Not much sunshine to enjoy, but if there is, she finds it. 
And the big news of the week involves this little guy. He's getting closer to being a big brother. The new arrival is due in mid-May. Before that, he will be having birthday #2 in February. The big news is that he's going to have a baby brother. It's a boy! *VBS* Of course, it's a boy.....LOL

Another boy, how exciting. There is nothing more precious than little boys. Oh and the mischief they can get into!! But we sure love them don't we?

Granny Lyn said...

two years is a good span between little boys, but close enough they will still be "buddies"

Ebbie really does look like a black watermelon, doesn't she? tee hee! I'm like her, give me some sun to languish in...

"black watermelon with a tail"
That line cracked me up!

Cher said...

nice to check in and see your lovely yummy gift...another baby boy, well-that will keep everyone busy won't it? I can't believe how huge Ebby looks...oh my.

Magpie Sue said...

Guess Ebby missed the memo about "Sleek black cats." Or, like some of the rest of us, she's reached an age where she just doesn't care anymore, LOL.

How exciting to know there's another little boy on the way! One thing's for sure, your family knows how to do boys!
