SAMI'S COLOURFULWORLD

The best news

I had known for a while - since the day my husband and I were invited to dinner by our son and daughter in law, and presented with a little gift each. When we unwrapped it, these mugs announced the good news. I clicked straight away, but I still remember my husband´s puzzled face...
It was wonderful news, but we were asked not to share it straight away, as they wanted to wait until the 12 weeks scan to make sure all was well.


It´s now been announced publicly (on Facebook of course, where else?), so I can now shout out to the world that I´m going to be a Grandmother in November!
Both Michael and Sara being very artistic, created a very cute announcement too - like a movie poster.
So our first grandchild is on the way... I can´t help it but I´ve already been shopping for some cute clothes in Portugal.

    1. Thanks Wren, the whole family is celebrating the news of the second baby that will be born this year. My great-nephew born in February is being baptized next week, that being the reason for my visit. My parents are thrilled at the prospect of a second great-grandchild.
