Our family Christmas last night was enjoyable, but the last gift absolutely stole the show.
In a box labeled “From the Menter family to the Menter family”, we found two cards and several “Grandma” and “Grandpa” baby bibs. It was my brother and his wife’s way of announcing that they’re pregnant.
Baby J. Mentner will be making his arrival somewhere around the middle of July.
They’re not finding out Baby’s sex, but Debbie and I just KNOW it’s going to be a boy. (Grace reads over my shoulder and says “And me!”) Daniel, of course, is obstinate and insists it’s a girl–and that she’ll be the cutest girl in the whole world.
The pre-wedding plan said something about having the first kid somewhere around January 2012–but I’m glad they re-thought that plan and decided to start a bit earlier. Since they anticipate moving elsewhere for Dan’s Ph.D. program sometime in 2012, this gives Auntie Rebekah a bit more time to spoil the little one!
Yep. This announcement definitely stole the show.
And NOBODY is complaining!

How exciting! Being an aunt is one of the greatest joys in the world. :-)
Aww lovely! Definitely the best present! God’s blessing to them and to the child – as yet unborn, but known of God x
Haha! I hope Daniel is right. (;
Also – I agree with Melinda; being an Aunt is pretty great. It is probably one of my favorite self-descriptors! (:
We’ll just have to roadtrip!
=D That’s AWESOME! CONGRATULATIONS to the whole entire family!!
