I'm going to be a grandma!

The most exciting news ever....we are going to be grandparents for the very first time! We just found out this evening and we could not be any happier or excited, and my daughter is going to be an Auntie. My son and his wife were just beaming when they told us. They are going to be wonderful parents. I'm sure I will drive everyone crazy at work tomorrow! Yippeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Grandma Cheryl......I just love the sound of that :-)! Let the baby quilt making begin.

Then more good news for our family. My mother-in-law is a 11 year breast cancer survivor and she just had her yearly check and she is still cancer free, so some more exciting news!

And then when I check my email tonight I found out that I had won 30's charm squares from Vickie!! I'm starting to think I might want to go buy a lottery ticket or something! This will be a busy fun week. Tuesday I will be doing a happy dance, because I will be spending the day Christmas shopping (might have to do some grandma and auntie shopping) with my daughter and then she got us tickets to see the Nutcracker. I can't wait. Wednesday morning bright and early I will be drawing for the Christmas quilt raffle. I have the names all ready to go, but there is still time to enter.

I have gotten a little more decorating done. Fun to pull out things that you have kind of forgotten about. The box the snowman is sitting on goes with the feather tree...the drawers have cute little primitive ornaments in them and you decorate the tree to count down the days till Christmas, all sitting on top of the quilt Carol gave me.
I am feeling very grateful for all the good news. Life can just change so quickly, and we all have to deal with the ups and downs. Having family and friends to share it all with makes it that much more wonderful! Happy second week of December. Later gators :-)!

Congrats on winning a drawing - I think you deserve to, with the wonderful drawing you're having, don't you?
I love your Christmas decorations - so sweet! Love the feather tree - I've always wanted one, but the hubby thinks they're ugly. Ah well, I'll just have to enjoy yours.
