‘Twas the day before our trip

‘Twas the day before our trip
There were lots of bags to pack
What supplies would I need? I had started to wonder...
I needed to check a calendar; we might want to drink
And who would want to make that social blunder?

So off to the drug store
I flew like a flash
I looked for some gum, a few snacks, and some water
Then I went down the dreaded isle- condoms, tampons and tests
Could it be? Is it true? A son? Or a daughter?

Back to my office, hiding out in a 4th floor stall
I said a quick prayer and asked a stick for my fate
Wait 3 minutes? Please, no. That seems SO LONG!
But not to worry,  it took mere seconds
For the test to turn up, singing its song.

Oh my gosh! Can it be? What am I going to do?
Shock, fear, excitement, relief, and even despair!
The test came back – the result? Positive!
We’re having a 4th baby, how to tell Daddy?
My mind is now whirling, but I don’t yet feel festive!       

No worries, you see,
For I have a fun plan
I made him a card, and I’ll tape his reaction
He can read it on our honeymoon –
(I might have to give him a clue – a closed caption!)

So, yes, there it is:
We’re having a BABY!
Five Dream Weavers will soon become six
A fun, and FULL Christmas is coming our way
Stay tuned to this blog to keep track of the antics!

While some may view this as creative, we are not ½ as creative as these crazy folks!  Here is my current all-time favorite video baby announcement – done by some folks at the main campus of LifeChurch.tv.  I hope you enjoy:


  1. YAY! So very excited for the DreamWeavers! Many congrats and all the best wishes for a healthy pregnancy!
