Big News in Monkville

I almost always have something to write about. Whether it's interesting or not, I always manage to find something to blather on about on most days. Fortunately for y'all, today is no different. Well, technically it's a wee bit different in that it's actually something exciting and not...well...dumb.

Y'all ready?

You sure?

The Monk family would like to announce:

A NEW MONK BABY is due to arrive sometime in early December of 2008!!

We are so very happy at the thought being blessed and entrusted by God with yet another new life to raise for His glory. Please join us in prayer for a safe and healthy pregnancy for me and this new little one. Ps. 128: 3-5

Oh yeah... and if you could say a few extra prayers for this one NOT to be in the posterior position at birth...this mother and her back would be especially grateful. I'm just sayin'.

Oh, my goodness! Congratulations Michelle (and the rest of the Monk clan) what a wonderful blessing. I will be praying for you all as you prepare for this new addition to your sweet (and fun and spunky) family.

I just thought about this first grandchild (Christopher) will be 5 months old when my new nephew(hehehe)will be born!! And....Hopey will only be a year old! Just another reason that we need to live closer together! Are you sure The Mad Monk won't reconsider Michigan? Just think of the great babysitter you would have. And you would have me to help you get through those cold winter months...we would become Apples to Apples champions!!!

Love, Grandma T.

Yes, please pray for us. Pray also that we can have a boy so I will not drown in the Estrogen Ocean.

Now don't get me wrong, I'll be delighted with whaterver God, in His Providence, sends us.

Please pray for a boy.
