A Wonderful Day

Yesterday we celebrated Christmas with M's family in Scranton, PA. The day started off with us giving M's mom a belated birthday present. The present was a Christmas ornament of a pregnant woman's belly upon which we had "babies" written. There was an arrow pointing from the word to the big round belly. We also had written "Grandparents To Be" along the bottom. When she opened the gift she immediately began smiling and teared up and M's dad leaned in to see what the gift was. As they began hugging us in joy, J said we saw them dancing in her uterus yesterday at which point M's parents FROZE and said "What do you mean... THEY?!?!" We guess they didn't see the "..ies" at the end of "babies"!! They were absolutely thrilled! M's brother and sister in law were there and were equally excited.


M's sister arrived a little later, so we told her while the family was opening gifts. We told her in a similar fashion to how we told J's family. We let her open a gift with one onesie in it and then we waited about 30 minutes until all the gifts were opened and gave her another gift with the matching onesie in it. Her reaction was PRICELESS! Bawling and screaming "T-W-I-N-S"!! It was an amazing day all around.

We had a delicious Christmas dinner which had many a toast to a happy healthy year and of course to our two little miracles.
