Wrapping up the year...

Cannot believe that 2011 is almost over. It's been a wonderful year. So many blessings. I'm so thankful for the things that have happened this year. It didn't start out very good, but ended up being blessings in disguise. The Mr. losing his job, car accident and only having one car, and Ethel being hit by a car...all led to the most wonderful blessing, our baby! :) I cannot wait to see what 2012 has in store for us, TJH will be a HUGE blessing for us, but who knows what else God has in store for us.

Before we left town on earlier this week we had brunch with some wonderful friends. It's wonderful to be able to all get together since we live in three different states. We were missing our friend K though. But it was wonderful to catch up in person. :)

Going "home" to see our family always wears us out including the pups! The Mr. took a nap on the couch and Lucy took it upon herself to sleep on top of her daddy! :) 
What are you looking forward to in 2012? New goals?

I'm looking forward to our family expanding, another year of grad school, teaching some sweet students, the Mr. hopefully getting into grad school and starting that adventure, and fun memories with family and friends!

Maternity Pictures

My good friend, L, she is more like a sister, took some maternity pictures of me last week. Two days before Christmas and it was so beautiful outside. We headed to a small town that is close to our hometown and she got some shots of me. I hope Tucker enjoys seeing how his Mommy looked while he was baking. :)

Thank you L for capturing my growing tummy! :)

Kenzie Jayne

Kenzie Jaynewas born December 23rd!!
8lbs 2 oz and 21 inches long
We couldn't be more excited for M and J!
Tucker is one lucky boy to be friends and grow up with such a beautiful girl! Maybe Tucker and Kenzie will get married one day! :)
The whole day that Kenzie was born Tucker was very active...I think it's because I kept telling him how beautiful and perfect Kenzie was! :)

The Mr. and I were able to go visit M, J and Kenzie and we couldn't get enough of her! She is truly a gift from God and M and J are already such wonderful parents to this sweet little girl!

We also just got even more excited about our sweet boy making his arrival soon. It's going to be so wonderful to raise our children together. Such great memories to be made in the years to come!


It's Wednesday!

So What If...
  •  I'm kind of sad all the Christmas fun is over but at the same time I'm ready for the new year!
  •  I'm enjoying having time to read whenever I want.
  • I'm wanting to just be at home and do whatever I break is coming to an end fast. :(
