We're Going to be Grandparents!

The cat is out of the bag. We're  going to be grandparents in ten weeks! 

Of course, we've already made the switch to grandparenthood in our hearts and it is with great joy we introduce to you our first grandson - Dakota Robert Lee; born Nov. 13, 1998; currently weighs in at 140 lbs. 

Dakota is a strapping 15 year old Freshman with a size 12 shoe. He's a very good sport. 

Dakota won Michael with the first Peepaw (well OK - he won ME with the first Peepaw, but they both seem to be adjusting to the name in this photo). This photo was taken right after he'd made a "peepaw" comment....and right before he commented it is going to be fun to be part of this family!

They're pretty happy to have Dakota join the family as well. 

Dakota and Uncle Nolan - both freshman this year

Michael and Dakota joined forces and have decided to christen my father the "Grand Poopaw". 

Choosing Joy!

Congratulations! I have a grandson who was a wedding present to me when my daughter married his dad. He was not quite as big .... only 7 years old. So in a little more than a years time we gained a granddaughter (the "normal" way) and then a son-in-love and a grandson in one fell swoop!
