Jean,

Mine were fraternal boy/girl -- a big surprise - didn't know until three days before they were born.  This was 1969, so no sonograms!  They actually took an x-ray to confirm!  Not only that, but I had to stay in bed for most of my pregnancy and after surgery for incompetent cervix, had to have ALCOHOL in my blood stream at all times to prevent early labor!!  My alcohol of choice was scotch and I didn't drink it again for 11 years!  Kids were born perfect, but we  joke about how 'laid-back' they were  - ha ha.  

I thought this was off topic, but on second thought my kids are the JOY OF MY LIFE!

Have a wonderful day.

Hug,
Elaine

Hi y'all -

Just back from a happy visit with daughter and grandkids.  Worked in the kindergarten class of my grandson and the 4th grade class of my granddaughter -- never did that before and I enjoyed it.  Kudos to ALL TEACHERS!!!

I'm feeling great and grateful today and every day!  

Oh! I forgot to say I leased a new car!  This is news because I was very attached to my old car which I kept for almost 12 years - a VW Cabrio!  Now I have a 2010 Honda Civic, 4dr.  Love having 4 drs, a big trunk, great mileage and no stress hoping it won't break down ;)

Hug,
Elaine

Jean,
Congratulations on "your" twins!
And Elaine on your new wheels!

My trip to Germany was a huge success.  My Mom rallied and used the wheelchair we brought for her not as a wheelchair but  as a walker (she pushed it)  through the many cobblestone streets.  She was thrilled to stay in the town that bears her family name, and am so grateful I was part of that memory.

Oh one more thing to add to my joylist,  my son got accepted to all the schools he applied to (grad school) so we'll be taking a few road trips in the next few weeks to visit the universities, and help him with the decision of where to go.
