This One's For You, Charlie!

So this post has nothing to do with our upcoming trip. In fact, it’s about something much closer to home. Today, the world welcomes Charlotte! The first Scrappy to grace the Scooby Gang with her presence, the miniMart live and in person. We went out to celebrate her birth because we couldn’t be happier she’s here, or happier for her parents who brought her here, or happier for the whole wide world, because today it welcomed a lovely, beautiful, sure-to-be-amazing addition to its population.

We already love you Charlotte!

(And in case you’re curious, Lizzi and I are drinking Yuengling, because we figured that there’s a good chance she’s going to be wearing Tartan someday, and what better way to celebrate her future Alma Mater than with a pint of Pittsburgh’s finest?)

Update: After reading the comments on this post, we realized that there are a few inside jokes here that need to be explained. First, we call our best friends from college the Scooby Gang. Second, two of these wonderful friends just had a baby, which we called miniMart up until she received a proper name. Third, Tartan is Carnegie Mellon's color. And finally, Scrappy Doo was Scooby-Doo's pint-size cousin. I think that should clear everything up.

Ok guys, I want to be excited too but is it literal or what? I don't know what you're talking about!! Can you post translations on your future entries if they won't make sense to the layperson? HELP!! :P

Ok - so for a minute I thought there was a new action figure at your local walmart that Matt would add to his scooby doo collection!!!! Upon reading other blogs, I think I now get that a friend had a baby and you already have nicknames for her :) I crack myself up sometimes - but you have to admit that you would probably blog about a new action figure with almost the same level of enthusiasm!!!
