I’m Back with Exciting News!!!

Posted by: | Comments (18)

After a long hiatus from writing this blog, I am happy to say “I am back”.

Exciting things are happening in the Sherwood family.  In March we joined our son Jake and wife Elif in Mammouth for a look at real snow!  I had never seen that much snow.  They had over 400 inches this past season.

The very best part of that weekend was the surprise announcement in our birthday cards!  We are going to be grandparents!!!!

 

Very early on Baby Sherwood was nicknamed Huevos because it all began with an egg. It has been great watching the changes is Elif and Jake as they grow closer together to welcome this baby. They chose to be surprised by the baby’s sex at the birth.  Today, Halloween, was the due date.  Huevos decided he/she was not ready to face the real world just yet.  Elif says he is still marinating.  Haha!

Here are some fun things happening as we becoming a G-mom and G-dad:

  1. Receiving text messages and ultrasound pictures after doctor visits.  Is that really a baby in there???
  2. Shopping with Elif for the baby’s room at the Land of Nod.  Love that baby store! (Not so fun for G-dad)
  3. Jake designing the mural for the baby’s room with the fun finishing touches on video. Don’t miss this video Huevos’ Room 
  4. Working with Jake and Elif’s friends to surprise Elif with a baby shower.  
  5. Creating fused glass favors for the shower.
  6. Talking frequently about Huevos’ progress including a video today of a very energetic baby kicking Mom’s belly. 🙂  Here is how the future Mom and Dad spent their Halloween Due date!

This is what I aspire to be next Halloween!

Life is such a miracle.  We are seeing it in a whole different light through this baby experience.  Now I am beginning to see why all of you who are already grandparents say it is so wonderful. 🙂

Thanks for reading about our family.

Lot’s of great renovation posts to come in future blogs.  (Hint-you can see a sneak peek in the background of the birthday card photo!)

Great to re-connect!  You will be the first to know about baby Huevos’ arrival!

What’s Red and Walks Over Water?

The Walking Red

What’s red and can walk over water?  The MSLL Walking Red Team at the annual O’Sail CrossingGo team!

The annual O’Sail event, The Crossing, is quickly approaching.  August 11 is this year’s date.  It is a great family event.  You can swim, paddle, float or walk across the lake. Pick your pleasure!

Several years ago I wanted to be more a part of the Crossing. I chose to stay high and dry and walk the bridge. Collecting a few friends we created the Walking Red Team.  So now is the time to join us to walk over the water of Lake Gaston.  Wear something red to be part of our team.  We will meet at 8:30 at The Point side of Eaton’s Ferry Bridge.

You will need to pre-register on line, www.osail.org  Entries are $20 pre-register, and $25 day of event. All entries include a T-shirt and refreshments at the finish line provided by the Food Lion.

Join the fun and support the community services supported by O’Sail!!!
