And … b is for?

Buttons, butterflies and ?

All good things come in threes but I had to ask permission to tell you the third one…

Yes, B is for BABIES!!

Three new grand babies, all due in the spring.Joanne, Sarah and Lauren, all posing nicely for the camera, due at the beginning of March, middle of April and the end of April…

Julia does not feel she is missing out?Ruby is excited!

We’ll be going from three grandchildren…to six, all in the space of a few months! Thanksgiving will be even noisier. We all spent the day in Rockford with Julia and Matt. Only John was missing. He had to feed the hungry hoards in Madison. I can’t imagine the holidays next year…

Time for more pictures?

Benjamin and Lilly.Benjamin will always be the eldest. He serenaded us with songs whenever we thought the noise level had dropped.Ruby is going to start piano lessons soon so perhaps we’ll enjoy duets in the future? But for now we’ll just have  a picture of Ruby sitting pretty!And don’t forget great grandpa, all the way from England.What fun!

I really do need to get my sewing room back up and running. There are quilts to be made 🙂

    Congratulations Catherine. I always remember James’s 2nd birthday party. You sat all the children on the floor (and there were dozens) gave everyone a plastic plate then walked around with a big bowl of a homemade pasta dish giving everyone a big scoop. So in control. Seemed only yesterday but you’ll be doing that with your growing brood of grandchildren soon!

      I’m afraid it was all a blur! Sounds like a dangerous and messy meal? No doubt we had plenty of flannels at the ready…

    We had two sets of three two years apart. And two years later, a set of 2 (I opted out) for a grand total of 8 of 10 grandchildren 4 and under. Getting together was wild but fun. Now we are doing weddings.
