Exciting news

Meghan and Ben
Now that I am finally alert after last week's only post, in which I wrote about trying to stay awake, I want to share some wonderful news.

My son, Ben, has become engaged to a wonderful young woman, Meghan, who I am so happy to now call my future daughter-in-law. Everyone knew they were going to get married, and some of us even knew exactly when he was going to propose, but it was incredibly exciting to get their call, on speaker phone, in which they told me that he had surprised her with the ring...and that she had said yes!

Last night we gathered at Diane and David's and gave a Champagne toast to the newly engaged couple. It was actually an early Hanukkah party, so we lit candles, exchanged presents, and toasted everyone. Diane set a beautiful table, and D&D, as people call them, served a terrific meal.

It was the first time I had seen the ring, and I couldn't take my eyes off it, sparkling on Meg's hand.

I don't use many exclamation points, but the occasion warrants it, so, here goes:

My baby is getting married!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, Ronni,

he just turned 1 year the other day -- and we took him out for his first trip to a restaurant -- a pizza parlor --

shortly after, he became the calendar poster-boy, one photo i took with him wearing his fireman's helmet from his nyc aunt-friend!

Congratulations! Thrilling!

Sarah was our first baby girl -- Ben i believe is our first baby boy!
