I thought for sure I'd have all sorts of comments about how funny Blaine is on that video. (I use GoogleAnalytics and I know there are more than 7 of you.) Which leads me to believe that you all think I'm crass for putting that on the WWW. Shucks.

On a more serious and important (and not in the slightest bit trivial--we'll reconvene T.T. next week) note, as long as I have your attention I figure I might as well solicit your faith and well wishes. Would you say an extra little prayer for Grandma Tillie today? She's recovering from a surgery that got a little complicated and we sure would love all the faith and prayers you're willing to offer. Thanks. p.s. One of my favorite conversations with Grandma Tillie:

Anne: Well you're sure going to have fun in Florida, Gram. You know, some people sunbathe nude there. You could try that.

Grandma: (chuckling) All the people on the beach will say, "Well that lady forgot to iron her dress!"

I didn't get to watch the video because I am at work, but I am sure it is hilarious! I will watch it when I get home.

I hope your grandma is ok!

Oh Tillie...we love you! We will say a big prayer for you and hope you get better soon. I love that story about ironing her dress. She is such a witty gal.

and ps. no one thinks you are crass...we are all just glad that we are normal.

Who doesn't love Gram? She's so witty and sweet and we hope she recovers very, very soon! Lots of love and prayers from us.

Shoot! I watched that video 3 times and neglected to leave a comment, but I did laugh my head off each time. So funny.

It sounds like your grandma and mine would get along just fine. I hope she is doing well, I'll say a prayer because grandmas are the best.

Crass? Come on, Anne. That was mild and refined compared to some of the antics that go down at our house.

Of course we'll pray for Grandma Tillie -- after all the Shari's Poker and funeral potatoes, it's the least we could do. Hope everything goes ok. Love to you guys and her.

Oh, Gram!! She will certainly be in our prayers! Thanks for sharing the concern. We love her.

(And I didn't realize I HADN"T commented on Blaine's hilarity! We laughed and laughed!)

That is so funny! I love a grandma with a sense of humor!

And I don't think you're crass. I just didn't know what to say! That was too funny!

I'll definitely keep Grandma Tillie in my prayers. May God bless you and your family. :o)

Loved the video and LOVE all of you and certainly adore Grandma Tillie, and I so wish I could comment without setting up an account EVERY TIME!! That's why I seldom comment!

Confession.... I watched the video alone 4 times and then once with Mark and I couldn't help but laugh out loud every single time!
ps could he look any more like you when he is laughing?
Grandma Tillie is in our prayers!

Oh my gosh. I just laughed my heart out at that last statement. Sometimes I will just click on your blog to see what you all are up to, and you have the most entertaining blog! Congratulations for still being able to work it in the last days of your pregnancy. The day I got pregnant I was unable to work it, so you go girl! (Aren't we so excited for Lisa and Andy?)
