We're having a bAbY........

.......Well......
 .....not US, exactly,
but our daughter and son-in-law are!

So, of course, I couldn't resist this
vintage crosstitched panel
from Etsy


And this little "how-to kit (also from Etsy)
so i can begin re-learning how to smock!:-)


I have spent $10 so far on my GrAnDcHiLd:-)

Now the big question...
What should he/she call us?
My husband likes "Pops":-)...
But do I like GrandMug....or "Mugsie"?

GrandMug & Pops...
Pops & GrandMug....

Mugsie & Pops....
Pops & Mugsie....

Both sets of names have an endearing  look and "ring" to them, do they not?

But GrandMug is a bit of a mouthful...
Hmmm .... And "Pops & Mugsie"
sort of makes me think of a 1940's "gangster" duo?

I guess it could just be plain ol'
"Mug & Pops"
"Pops & Mug" 

All right, Dear Friends, what do YOU think?
-Mug

P.S.  We are gaining TWO new additions to our family this year.....
a daughter-in-law AND a grandchild!
I posted here about our new daughter-in-law-to-be!

Courtney told me earlier this week AHH*&!!!! I'm SOOO EXCITED!!!

I like Mugsie personally, but maybe that's because that's what I've known you as for so many years? ( Mug)

I knew it would be soon..she's ready :)

Congrats Mugsie!

Great news! Courtney's been on my mind a lot lately; I don't really know why - I was wondering how she was doing and missing her.
Have fun, 'Mugsie'
