Big News!

Drum roll please!

Wait for it . . . .

Wait for it . . . .

Yep, you guessed it! The Family G is growing. We are expecting our 6th edition in February!

"How am I feeling?" you ask.

Very first trimester, unfortunately. Ya know, the 24/7 nausea thing. Oh well, whatever it takes to get these sweet babies here. We have waited a long time for it to be the right time for baby number 6.

"Aren't you announcing it a little early?" your thinking.

Well, maybe. But since the entire ward knows, I thought I'd let you in on the not so secret, secret. We told the kids and our families over the 4th of July but I hadn't really planned on telling anyone else quite yet. Well Sunday, Ellie was having a bad asthma episode and Steve could see I was looking a little green, so he offered to teach my Sunday School class while I rested for three blessed hours on the couch, and had a nap with Ellie. And so, I missed the big announcement, but I understand it went something like this:

Daniel, who always bears his wonderful testimony every Fast Sunday closed by saying, "And I know Joseph Smith was a prophet, and my Mom is pregnant. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen."

I'm relieved really. I don't have to pretend I'm not feeling nauseous anymore!
