This is what I looked like when I heard the news
February 16, 2012 | My Jottings
A couple of months ago, at our family’s Thanksgiving dinner table, we heard some news.
No one had a camera in hand right then to take pictures of our faces when we all heard the news.
So I used my Mac’s Photo Booth feature to take my own picture as I re-enacted what I think I looked like when I heard the news.
Up until now I haven’t been able to freely share the news.
But now I can.
I think I should let my oldest daughter Sharon tell it in her words, though.
If you’re interested in knowing what made me look like this when I heard the news, click over here to Sharon’s blog.
She tells the news in a much more creative and humorous way than I could ever tell it.
She calls it her “super top-secret surprise announcement.”
And then, after you’ve scrolled through her goofy photos to get to the news, I’d love it if you come back to tell me what you think of the news!
Congratulations to you Super-Grandma! Your newest grand-babe is blessed to have you, and to have a Mom like Sharon. In reading her blog (and I went on to read several different postings. In fact, I think I will “follow”) I thought I was hearing your voice—your great sense of humor, with your humility.
She is making quite a life, and that could not have happened without a Mom like You!
She does make me laugh too, Roberta! From one grandma to another, I can’t wait to meet my eighth grandbaby! Have a blessed weekend….
Congratulations – what a wonderful surprise!!!
Yes it was a surprise, Helen….but a welcome one! I hope your blizzard is dying down…

Yes, yes Mariel! Thank you for your good wishes!
A new grand baby!! How wonderful ! Sharon certainly has a creative spirit & writing talent ….just like her mother….(I agree w/her about the guy in the 1st pic 100% 🙂 And it is obvious this little one is already bringing joy into your lives. Please keep us posted..boy/girl…name…pictures …etc etc.
Thank you Linda…I agree about Sharon’s creativity but I think it came from my mom, who was amazingly gifted and creative. I am anxious to find out if they’re having a boy or a girl and I will keep you posted for sure…. xxoo
Blessings on mama and on the little one. May angels guard the way of this child to share life with us. xxx
Amen, dear Ember. xxoo
