Sock Knockin' News...

And why I chugged something ice cold two days ago.

OK, so Tuesday was just another know, kids to tend to, grandbabies to watch, errands to run, just another day.

Later on in the afternoon while Dad was busy cooking dinner....

And I was busy...

I mean...FOLDING LAUNDRY...yes, that's right I remember now, I was folding laundry, for sure...

And the kids were playing ouside, practicing their newest take down moves...

Kyle James and Meghan came home for just a little bit, in the small break Kyle James had inbetween his two jobs.
They said they wanted to talk to Dad and myself, and could we please make sure the kids stay outside for a few minutes.
Well...OK, sure but Adriana, our lil' knee bouncing, hair pulling booger grandbaby had to stay, for obvious reasons..she has to learn to walk first before we send her to karate class.

After a moment of silence, Kyle James and Meghan, holding hands, finally fessed up and broke the news...

They are getting married!!

And, if that wasn't just cool enough...they then told us that this summer they are bringing us home something else... heard that right. It's baby time in the "K" home again.

To which Dad put his mixing spoon down, looked at me, I looked at him and without skipping a beat he reached into the..

And grabbed me one of these....

And I chugged that bad boy like nobody's business.
Which, in turn made me all silly and strange because I am no drinker..and that one beer went straight to my head.

And that, my friends, is just another typical day here in our home.

Hope your day is an exciting one too!!

Love, Kim
