I'm a Grandmother!!

Exciting news-I'm a Grandmother. These two little baby girls were born last night to my son Eli and his wife Tali. Tali's doing fine. The girls weight 5 lbs. 7 oz. and 5 lbs. 5 oz.
These are our first grandchildren. We have to wait a bit to see them-they're in Boston. and here's more exciting news-we're going to be the nannies! So in May we're moving to Boston for the year. (Know anyone who would like to rent a nice, completely furnished house on the shores of the Sea of Galilee?)

I think I want to be called Nana...I asked DH what he wanted to be called-his answer, "Dan". LOL!

Mazel tov! I am so happy for you! Lots of good wishes to your family!

As for your house at the Kinneret, my daughter's boyfriend lives there in the area. I could ask if anybody is looking for a space to rent.
