This past Sunday Scribbling's prompt was "Anticipation". If I hadn't been so selfish and so gosh darn cold, I should have written about the anticipation of my brother's child. Well, no more anticipation. Brady Lucas was born on Dec 20, weighing in at 9# 3 oz! A big boy, and the first boy born in our family in nearly 30 years! My brother is so proud!!! (as he well should be). And my sister-in-law is doing fine! Congratulations, bro, on the new addition to your family!
An addendum to my complaining about the cold: Today we lost electricity for about 9 hours, and it got real cold indoors. I lit 24 (yes, twenty-four) candles. It was gorgeous in my apartment! And made me forget how cold it was. When the electricity came back on, I turned off the lights, turned the heat on full blast, and sat by candle light... until I got the photos of my new nephew!
