Baby reveal and a find

New kind of baby reveal - to me at least!
My friend since jr high, Nina, is going to be a grandmother again, this time to twins. Her daughter and son-in-law are expecting them in March, so probably in February!



 *After* 2 girls!!!

So much for the Gmen helping out for boys! πŸ˜‰

And poor little R, he wasn't happy at all that he was getting two girl cousins, he wanted boys too!

As goofy as this shirt is, I must have saved it to pass on to Beth!

And in stitchy news...
Hey Jo, look what I found!
This past weekend, Nathan and I went to visit my parents and stopped by the antique mall on the way there. I had this magazine years ago and gave it away because there wasn't anything I wanted to stitch in it - or so I thought. Although I'm not ready to start this yet, I'm hoping for early next year.

And these were only 25 cents each, I couldn't resist.

Some scenes on our way home that evening.

I pulled over to take these, perfect timing for the sunset. 

Once again, I'm behind on replying to blog comments and reading blogs. I'll see what I can do about that tomorrow.

Such a great cake. What a lovely idea.
You were very successful at the antique mall. I would have bought the magazine as well, this chart is just awesome. And of course you could go past these adorable Prairie Schoolers, lol. I would have bought them as well, particularly at that price.

Congrats to your friends on the happy news...a great dessert and what fun they must have had with that.
Cute T shirt and vintage too!
Love the PS santas, they are always so popular.
Enjoy stitching the little bees, I enjoyed watching Jo's grow and will look forward to seeing your updates

Very cool cake and t-shirt tradition... Having twins in the family is exciting! You did well thrifting! I don't do Santas, and even I would have bought those to give to a different stitcher!! Thanks for sharing! Hugs!

What a cute way to tell the sex of the babies!! What a wonderful shirt! Great deals on the cross stitch goodies!

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Fantastic t-shirt and a great way to stop all the wondering about whether it is twins in there. I got it a lot with my lovely 10lb boy, even the twin mum on the labour ward thought I was joining her! My son did weigh more than both her's put together!

Maybe I'm missing something, but the right hand cookie looks blue to me?

What a cute reveal idea. Great finds. Love your sunset photos. I'm trying to catch up with blog reading too. So easy to get behind.
