Gifts from Mum & Dad's Vacation and.......

.......an announcement, but I'll get to that in a minute. My parents extended their trip by one day and just got home around 8pm today. Along with smelling like the outdoors, a bit sunburned and a little more grey hair, they brought GIFTS!!! Yay!

My mom has always loved copper and got me this cool ring from a giftshop in Washington. I heart rings.


Moving clockwise starting from the top left: Painted wood box for my room, Four antique egg cups (I collect antique's), Glass star fish(I coleect blown glass and glass stuff), The little lady bug thing is a business card holder(for when i get a job) and kukua nut choker. I've always wanted one of these to hang in my car.(when I get one) And in the card holder is a music note pin. can never have enough music stuff I always say.
Underneath all this stuff is an apron with lavendar flowers embroidered on it. I am always cooking and my current apron is a little warn out. I love it. The two flower packages are wildflower seeds from Oregon. I am a flower planter heart and soul. You'll see these growing in my yard next summer. The little orange flower is a dried, pressed flower magnet. Coolness. The long green thing is a leather bookmark from Butchart Garden's that my parents saw. I am always reading a million books at once and usually end up using post it notes to save my place. Never enough bookmarks in my room. The little bear figuring is.....a bear figurine. ok, so it has an "R" on it. I have a collection of "R"s in my room and I now have a bear R!! last is the yellow lollipop looking thing. It's actually a honey lemon bear. either for candy itself or for mixing in your tea. You can guess which one I'll be using it for.
And now for the announcement!

MICHELLE IS PREGNANT!!!!!!
She and Lema came over tonight to see my parents coming home, but during dinner Michelle said, "I have an announcement everyone. We are expecting!" She brought the paper from the clinic confirming her due date and everything. She is 6 weeks along and due sometime early in May 08'. They don't know the sex yet, but I'm hoping for a girl (of course).Oh, Toni, if you're reading this at work, don't tell anyone, she hasn't told anyone there yet. I think she may tomorrow though. thanks. Then Michelle called my grandma. You could hear her screaming thorugh the phone, she was so excited!! This will be her first great-grand child and my parents will finally be grandparents!!!! Seems only fitting someone in my family has the first great grandbaby as my dad is the oldest child. Yehaw!!!! I found this little onesey online. I am SO getting it.
