Next Summer

First we received the tartan mice. We thought they were very cute. Then we received the framed picture. Then I realized what it meant, the two little shoes between Terra and Lares. Then Attila found the pack of DoubleMint gum at the bottom of the gift bag… a few seconds to think… twins!

Next summer will be very exciting here at Mist Cottage! More Grandbabies!

And to think, Terra invited us to that photo shoot, but unfortunately they had booked it during one of Attila’s shifts, so we could not join them. That would have been memorable indeed. The welcome announcement, disguised in Christmas gift wrap, will not be forgotten.

“When children feel they have to earn our love by what they accomplish, they never feel good about themselves, no matter how much they do, no matter what their age. Indeed, some adults work outrageous hours, make huge salaries, and always strive to accomplish more and yet are never satisfied, no matter what they have achieved. This is because they were never given the free, unconditional love of their parents, the love that is every child’s birthright.”

Congrats! What a cute way to announce twins. 🙂


Wonderful news and what a clever announcement. Best wishes to Terra for a smooth and uneventful pregnancy and delivery.

I’m so glad for all of you that the stars aligned so that the timing of your move will let you get unboxed and fully settled into such good proximity to these new grands.


I love it! It’s always a fun-filled ride with twins. I knew a couple who had triplets and wow, that was an adventure!
