Last Monday, we received a call from our son, Luke, telling us that he and his wife, Frema, would be coming to visit on Easter weekend too. Of course, we are delighted although a little surprised as the young couple spoke earlier about spending the holiday at home in Indianapolis. So Daddy D and I are looking forward to a visit from both sons and daughters-in-law and our precious granddaughter.
On Saturday, Luke calls to let us know that they are on their way after a short visit with high school/college chums. Luke and Frema arrived in time for supper. I am busy getting supper ready, and Luke calls me into the living room. Luke and Frema give us the basket pictured here.
There is really nothing unusual here either. Luke and Frema are kind and generous people and are always giving us presents. You may note that there is a children's book in the basket...still that is not out of the ordinary. We all are book lovers and give each other cute or meaningful children's books from time to time. Plus, the author-illustrator is Sandra Boynton, one of my favorites. We ooh and aah about the book and basket. Leaving the card for last, Luke reminds us that we should open the card. Still nothing unusual here...Luke likes greeting cards and uses cards to celebrate holidays and other occasions. But as Daddy D opens the card, we are overcome with joy to see this.
Immediately, I am hugging Frema and shedding a few tears of joy, and Luke is hugging Daddy D. Soon, we are all hugging in a spontaneous four-person hug as a celebration of the good news.

So how was your weekend? Our weekend was wonderful. Our sons were here, our daughters(-in-law) were here, our sweet little granddaughter was here, and our grandbaby-to-be was here.
