What's For Dinner And Other Excitement

We were delighted to learn that our nephew, his wife and their two young daughters are planning to stop by and stay with us for a few days on their way back home to the midwest after vacationing at Myrtle Beach. I've  been pulling out some recipes for meals to fix while they're here when my husband enlightened me (after speaking to his brother, the girls' grandfather). Their favorite foods are: popcorn, potato chips, ice cream, macaroni and cheese and Cheerios. Oh, good... that's  just exactly what I was planning on serving! ?! 
Just when this Nana's heart is full to overflowing comes the
joyful news that there's going to be one more... the heart expands, and love grows!
...as does this GIANT quilt top...
just wait until the North and South arrive.
Life is Good!

Am I reading what I think I'm reading or am I imagining things?

Beautiful border work - and what a FUN menu!

When the North and South arrive in Dixie that usually means a battle--hope that isn't so in your case. : )
At least your meal planning just got a lot less complicated--maybe.
Congrats on the good news. Just wonderful!

Could not happen to a more wonderful grandmother - and the quilt is absolutely beautiful. Not sure about the "diet", but whatever it takes to make guests happy is what I would do also. Live is good and you are so blessed. Judy C n NC
