Hocus pocus alamagocus! The joke was on me!

 
 
I love little gifts so I was delighted when I read my granddaughter's text:
 
When will you be home? We have a little gift for you from Oktoberfest :)
 
It was dark at 6:30 p.m. when she and her husband pulled into the driveway.
 
 
I just knew there was a cute bracelet or pair of earrings inside this little four inch cloth bag.
 
 I opened it and thought, Aww, how sweet. I DO remember her first little trick-or-treat joke. I said, "Oh honey, I can still hear your toddler voice, 'What do baby ghosts wear on Halloween? BOOties!' This is my surprise?"
 
 
"Yes, and you can keep them at YOUR house for Lana (Lahna) or Liam William... William for Paw-Paw's namesake." Names, of course, are tentative right now.
I cried. I screeched. I jumped up and hugged her. Then I told her to sit down and be careful. Then I rubbed her tummy. I aksed when she found out.
 
"You won't believe it. We had stopped at Wal-Mart because we were going to buy a bottle of wine to take to the Oktoberfest party we were invited to. Justin saw an Early Pregnancy Test in the check out line and said, "Why don't you try that before we get to the party and drink?"
 
She went into the empty bathroom, peed on the stick and when it came back positive, half the store could hear her yelling. The cleaning girl came in and asked if she was okay. She screamed, "Yes, I'm pregnant. My husband and I have been trying for months."
 
The girl grabbed her hands and they both jumped up and down and cheered. Oh what a Wal-Mart memory! I think I'll call my great-grandchild WALLY.
 
I love being a grandma. This is going to be GREAT!
This was the best Halloween surprise ever!

Linda, you do NOT look old enough to be a great grandma, but I'm sure you will be a great, great-grandma Hugs.

Congrats!

Liam can also be a shortened form of William - so the baby would have a repeating name!
