On Christmas morning, the picture gift was Maren and David’s way of letting us know that they are expecting a baby. Best Christmas gift ever! This will be their first child and our first grandchild. I was asked to stay mum on this blog until all of the testing came back, which it did, last week. Yesterday, they made their own social media announcements. It was hard to contain myself all of this while. The baby is due in July and not wanting to know the baby’s sex beforehand, they have taken to calling their child the Little Hatchet. In addition to being our first grandchild, this baby will also be Maren’s parents first grandbaby too. This will be my father’s first great grandchild and Anne’s father’s fourth. Three of which are due this year. I think that I can safely say that we are all joyful with this news and expect great things to come.
