A Blessing is on the way!




I also have another secret that won't be after today (besides wishing Jennifer a very Happy Birthday.



She made an announcement to the family that she and my son Curt are expecting their first baby together and the soon to be parents are making me a Grandmother.



Having said that I welcome our new addition to the family in February next year with anxious happiness.



Congratulations to both of you on your new journey of parenting ahead wishing you both a very happy life together and a healthy future for the baby.
