Hym (and Happy New Year!)


Do you know what this is?

Oh come on. It's really pretty obvious, I think.  My son and daughter-in-law are having another baby and it's going to be a smurf.



Remember? (Of course you do. You're older than dirt, just like me.)

OK, you know I'm kidding.  They're going to have a another baby boy and I'm going be be a grandma again!  And since they can't decide on a name, I've decided to name him Hym. (For the record, Hym would be Herm if he were a she, but as they say in the silent movies, it's a mute point.)  This is what I do when I can't sleep.... I think up ridiculous baby names.  And I dream of baby hugs and kisses.  SIGH.

So this little bundle of delight is expected at the beginning of April and I wanted you all to know that I'm the happiest and luckiest woman/grandma alive.  Happy New Year and may God's love and peace be with you throughout 2013.Thank you for keeping me in your thoughts and prayers.

Congratulations, Mags! Hym,huh. Don't even know how to respond to that one. :)

Happy New Year to you too, even though I'm not sure I appreciate you aging us 100 years. It's bad enough being 50, but I don't think I want to be around in 2113. Too many wrinkles at that age. :)
