Piece of advice

When taking your Christmas tree out, take the tree out of the water-filled-stand first. If you don't you'll end up with a big mess every where. Matt and I learned that the hard way today. 

Thanks Kierstyn!

If you like the new layout, thanks Kierstyn. We worked on it a tiny bit before I had to head to the airport and she finished it up for me. Doesn't it look good???

Falling Behind

We are now back in Georgia from a nice long vacation in Kansas. There are tons of pictures and stories. Most of them can be seen on Kierstyn's blog. Nothing like slacking off and then having a sister cover you, huh? Anyways, want to let everyone know I am really going to work harder on keep the blog current. If I think of anything Kierstyn missed I'll add it to mine. :-)

Party Time!

To announce that we are having a son we had Matt's family over. We didn't tell them what the baby was. We had them write their guess down and then go to the nursery to find out.

Here's one wall in the nursery. There were blue streamers and balloons every where!

Brenda and Ricky brought the very yummy desserts. Thanks! :-)

Matt with his grandpa

Once then men found out it was a boy they were quite happy to sit away from all the baby craziness.

Matt's favorite outfit so far. :-)

Thanks to everyone who came over to share in our joy! Thank you for all of the sweet baby things! I have a feeling Jeremiah won't be lacking for a thing.

About time!

I know it was almost two weeks ago when I siad I would add photo's of Jeremiah. Well here they are! Hopefully I'll be better about making posts once he's born. Here's hoping!

His whole body. How incredible is that!

I love this picture! His little face with his hands right there. 

Our son!

BOY! We are having a little boy! From the ultrasound he looks great! Measuring right on schedule. Not big, yea! He has all of his organs and is an active little guy! During the ultrasound he was just kicking away. We are so thankful for the blessing of our son and the fact that he's healthy.  

The girl doing the ultrasound told us everything that's white is bone. I saw her move the camera down his body to see if we would tell the sex. I thought his little bottom were his knees. I asked if the baby really had it's knees together. She told me it was his bottom, didn't take long after that to figure out we're having a boy! Picture will come soon. Tomorrow hopefully. 

For all of those you who voted for a little girl (DAD!) on the poll, sorry, you lost. The rest of you, congrats! you guessed right!

Welcome home!

This past weekend Matt and I were in Vegas for Ricky's (Matt's dad) 50th birthday. Was a fun trip and there will be a blog with lots of pictures coming soon!

Once we landed we were both hungry so we stopped at Chick-Fil-A for some dinner and a milkshake. I go to take a drinks of the milkshake, the lid pops off! I end up with milkshake all in my lap. Did I mention it was 30 degrees outside? No good! Clean up as much as we can and wait till we get home. 

I walk into the house and see that our real Christmas tree tipped over at some point while we were gone. Great! One good thing was we had a bag to collect the needles in and that caught all the water. I was so thankful not the have to mess with wet carpet. Sadly one ornament was lost.

By the time we get the tree standing up and thing picked up we fall into bed. I work Matt up a few hours later scream "Spider!" Apparently I was dreaming that there was a spider in our bed. Matt was so confused and jumped out of bed to kill the nonexistent spider.  

This morning as I start to get ready for work I see there's a bug in our bathroom. This is kind of normal since it's been getting cold out. This morning it was a scorpion! Not sure that Matt believed me when I told him there was a scorpion in the bathroom for him to kill. 

What a welcome home, huh?
