I'm Gonna Be A Grandpa!!!!!!!!!!

Yep, you heard right. Dimples and Soccer Dude are preparing for the arrival of their first child sometime in late May of next year. They've even picked out names already: Jackson Grant if its a boy, and Sophia Grace if its a girl. So far the proud parents are happy as can be and doing fine, as are the prospective grandparents.

Here they are, Dimples and Soccer Dude just after giving us the news.

While they wait I can concentrate on ways to spoil grandchild number 1, not to mention all the stories I have to polish up so I can pass them on to my grandchild about its mother. Let's see, where to start...

Well, she's a dedicated big sister who would never take advantage of her little sister, in an awkward situation, just to get a cheap laugh. (stifled giggle on my part).

She's always been a healthy eater.

She's level headed.

A cheerful soul, not to mention the life of the party.

Charming to a fault.

A good student.

Retiring and quite camera shy.

Oh, and here's one last photo of Dimples and the Wild Child.
(I couldn't resist)

Now, as for Soccer Dude. Hmm...I don't have many pictures of him (can't seem to get him to stand still long enough for the camera. Thank goodness my daughter has good taste! He cleans up pretty good, don't you think?

Soccer Dude when he was in Iraq.

Here are the genes that are being passed on. Oh, am I gonna have fun with this!

And my favorite photo of them. As much as I hate to admit this publicly, I really owe Soccer Dude for the look he put on Dimples face.
