I want you all to step back in time, to the days of the Andy Griffith Show in the 60's; if you're not familiar with it Ron Howard played Oppie Taylor. It was a great show and it depicted life in a small town. The was one character on the show who had one expression he used over and over again...let's see if you know who I mean. The man would say "Surr-prise, Surr-prise, Surr-prise...with quite a drawl.
(I'm trying my best to imitate him); well indeed that is what we got yesterday when our girl came home from her doctor appt. The four kiddos met them in the garage and this nana purposely waited inside so they could tell the kiddos what they are having. Once my hubby came across the street we waited for the news. Our daughter asked us what we were betting on and hubby said "A Boy"...and then(drum roll please)she said "We were so surprised, it is a girl". They had the ultrasound tech show them twice, just for good measure. We are so excited, boy or girl, we just want this babe healthy. I'm certainly glad I didn't cut out fabric that I showed you yesterday.
Yes, I do have enough "girly" fabric in my stash for a quilt and that purple may just be the back of it. Since hubby and I painted the girl's room, I already know what colors I need to focus on.
Another girl-we certainly outnumber the boys in our family.
I always like to find verses to claim for these little ones, even before they are born~life verses so to speak. One of my favorites is below:
"And our daughters as corner pillars fashioned as for a palace." Ps. 144:12
Many of you wrote yesterday telling me to expect a surprise and last night I just smiled and told everyone that the Lord does have a sense of humor.
Have a blessed day!
