Congrats! Much more fun having grandchildren. That's what made me understand the saying "If I'd have known how much fun it is having grandchildren I would have had them first".

Congratulations, Having 6 adult grand children & 3 great grands I cannot begin to tell you the joy they bring to your life. Get busy on making baby things, that also brings pleasure./Lillian

Congratulations,I hope you get to be there for the birth. Its so much fun to see our children take on the role of parents.

This is such an exciting time for you Elizabeth. Many congratulations. Imagine all the sewing and embroidery you are going to be doing :-)

by 1allamericangirl 18 Jul 2011

Congratulations Elizabeth. Wow I didn't know you were going to get to spend 7 weeks. That will really be nice so you can help the new mom out. Hope you have made cute little things for the new little one. I may get to go to Redlands, CA in Sept to spend my son's 50th birthday on the 17th but that is way down south from San Jose. To bad we could have gotten together for lunch.

Thank you - we'll be having a girl!!!!! My DIL is excited it's a girl.

Congratulations. Grandchildren are such blessings. I am about 2 hours drive away from San Jose and have relatives there as well that I visit often. I don't envy you having to do that long travel. Planes are so uncomfortable today.

I'm hoping to meet up with some Cuties - will post closer to the time. Elizabeth

by adavisx3 18 Jul 2011

Congratulations on your first grandchild. I don't live in the area but I wonder if there are any cuties in the area that you might be able to have lunch with during the time that you are in the US? You may not be interested but it could be fun.

by kttyhwk4 18 Jul 2011

Congrats! This is wonderful news.

by babie 17 Jul 2011

Congratulations and happy for you that you will be able to be there for them when the new baby arrives.

by pennifold 17 Jul 2011

Congratulations Elizabeth - they are such a blessing to you. I hope you have a wonderful time holidaying in the United Sates. I hope you do find some time though to make some little baby clothes. Love and blessings Chris

by shirlener88 17 Jul 2011

That is wonderful news - where will you be going in the US?

elizabethak by elizabethak 17 Jul 2011

My son lives in San Jose, California. We will be there for 7 weeks - the only thing I dread is the double hop- 11 hours to London from Johannesburg, 4 hour wait, 10? hours to San Francisco. We leave Port Elizabeth 13 Sep, spend a day with my daughter before flying on.

San Jose is not far from Sewmom, Crafter and me! Maybe during the 7 weeks we can plan something :)

Wish San Jose was closer to San Diego as I'll be in San Diego in Sept. Hope you all get a chance to get together. Carol
