almost 11 weeks...

I thought the nausea was gone...but apparently not.
Feeling so yucky and ready to get out of this trimester!

I updated my blog with some pink and blue...
and added to the
"about me" section to the right.

We go back to the doctor on January 13th.
Can't wait to hear that little heart beating away.

Just in case you have forgotten...
We still have a house for sale.
Please pray that we can sell it, move and get settled
before this baby arrives!

That's how I felt as we told our family and friends about our little one on the way.

Hehe because we had a secret and we waited a while to tell everyone.

Hehe because I have been giving everyone the "two more years" line
when asked when we would start a family.

Hehe because I was even more surprised than all of you.

Hehe because it's so crazy to think we are gonna be parents.

Hehe because next year at Christmas I will have a 5 month old.

It's just so crazy to me.
Very surreal.
That life's surprises are indeed fun.
Even when not exactly planned.
That God is in control (as he "hehe's" to himself at us).

This Christmas we are so looking forward to spending
4 days in Alabama with my family.
Eating, hanging out, visiting, playing with toys, and
talking about how we will have a little one next year.

Alan bought and wrapped the Little People Nativity
by Fisher Price for the baby. If you haven't seen it, it is
the most precious thing ever.
I can't wait to play with it with our baby.
I can't wait to teach him/her about the true meaning of Christmas!

Much love to everyone!
Merry Christmas!

I figured out late yesterday afternoon that I was off today!
Love little surprises like that.
No early Monday morning for me!

My good friend Laura is set to deliver her sweet
baby girl on Friday if she doesn't make an
appearance before then.

Gage weighs 10# 1 oz. as of last Tuesday!
When I was visiting on Friday I couldn't
believe how heavy he was!

Only 17 more days till Christmas!
That means Maggie is coming home!

Going to Alabama this weekend to see the family!
Can't wait!

Gonna use this morning to straighten up around here.
Wash the sheets. Wash some clothes.
Then off to do some Christmas shopping and maybe
meet Boo for lunch!

Happy Monday!

house update...

We got our house relisted with a new agent on Saturday!
(Our contract ran out with our old agent.)
She is very enthusiastic, organized, and positive.
We have already had a realtor caravan.
15 agents came through to look at our house!
We have lowered our price $5,000, and are hoping this
will sell it sooner!

We decided not to put a Christmas tree up at our house.
I really wanted to put up my antique tree.
But we think we are only gonna be home for one weekend
between now and Christmas so it really wasn't worth the hassle.

Therefore, I am really not in to Christmas this year.
No Christmas tree.
No stockings.
Not being able to bake goodies.
No fires in the fireplace.
No Christmas candles burning or
Christmas music playing.
Not being at home.

And can I just say again...I want our house to sell.
I want a home of our own.

Sometimes I am very positive about the situation...
sometimes I'm not.
And today is one of those days!

Please pray that our house will sell!
