It was a party weekend here in OK. Friday we had a little birthday party for GBN1 who actually turns three tomorrow. Saturday was a baby shower for GBN2. My mom came up from WF to attend the shower, and Toby’s mom surprised us and came from Lubbock with Toby’s sister. The baby shower was a good party with lots of baby gifts for the new baby. Later, Toby’s sister went home, but left his mother to stay with us for a few days. She was able to have some quality great-granbaby time. Today, we will meet Toby and Jesse for lunch and maybe do some shopping.
There are some families at our church fellowship that have large families – believing that God gives you children - so they do not use birth control of any sort (this is a personal belief for these families and not one that is pushed on anyone). One such family has twelve children. Their mom, Eva, was at the baby shower on Saturday although she was very pregnant with baby no. 13. I commented on how she looked ready to pop any day. She told me to be praying for because the baby was due any time now. Later that evening Eva’s oldest daughter called to say that her mother had gone into labor and would call again when the baby was born. Eva has had all her children at home without any problems using a mid-wife system. This time, Eva had a baby boy, but she did not feel very well after the birth. Her husband took her to the local hospital where she delivered a healthy baby girl. Twins! Babies numbers thirteen and fourteen! It was a total surprise, which was so unusual in this day and age that I just had to share it with you.
Hopefully, I will get my computer problems fixed this week. I'll be using my old dial-up in the meantime.
