Since you're almost certainly not the short one in the little black tank top - I'd say you are the proud new owner of the Grandma tshirt. I imagine that shirt will get quite a workout over the next few years!

Lovely family Barb. The grandkids are nicely balanced now genderwise. What do the boys think of these new bundles?

Gee Barb, your grand-daughters are beautiful and I enjoyed the picture of the boys holding the babies.

Great family picture too. (We could never get everyone smiling like that!)

I can't wait to see all the things you sew for those babies!

You all guessed right. That is me in the Grandma shirt. I have 3 or 4 so I can wash them once in a while. The boys love them. Rudy the 9YO was very proud of the fact that he was at the hospital more than anyone else.
Gabe the 6YO read their RIF books to them in the hospital. We were all surprised they gave them books that they didn't have yet.
Yes Debby we finished school last Friday & those last 2 days were murder for me since I just wanted to be holding babies.

I think I answered all the questions. I hope you don't all get tired of my pictures. If I feel better tomorrow I plan on making them bonnets using a large doll pattern. They only have knit hats & they don't really fit well.

I was proud of myself yesterday because their was only 1 baby in the room when I walked in & I got the name right.
