As Thanksgiving is fastly approaching, I am thankful for so much. Things that I don't give thanks for on a daily basis. First, I am thankful for my sweet sweet husband! He has always been sweet...but through the first part of the pregnancy...he's been the BEST. Caring for me when I feel sick, rubbing my back, fixing my dinner, sending me flowers/cards, cleaning the house, doing laundry...I could go on and on! I am also thankful for my wonderful family! They are the best! Thankful for the gift of a child! Oh how sweet this gift is! I am thankful I have a job. I complain about it a lot but I truly am thankful for it. Thankful for my church and our wonderful pastor and his wife. They are truly a blessing to us! Thankful for my sweet freinds that I have made here in Thomson. I thought I'd never have friends here...but the Lord has blessed me with some great ones! And SO thankful for my old friends. Although I dont get the time I used to with them...they still hold a very special place in my heart!
Most of all, I am thankful for my God! He is SO good to me and brings ALL the blessings I could ever ask for! He has send the greatest blessing of Jesus...who I am FOREVER thankful for!
I hope everyone will take time to reflect what they are truly thankful for this year. Let's not take the Lord's blessings for granted!

So long!!

Has it really been this long since I've blogged? WOW!!! Didn't expect to be such a slacker with this. However...my life has been VERY busy! I coached softball and basketball all summer and also worked with the youth of our church. We ended up giving the youth up because it was just way too much. We loved it...it just consumed our summers (along with coaching) and 2 days each week and almost every weekend. We were not getting enough time with each other and we knew we had to give something up.

My softball team made it to the playoffs again this year! We didn't make it past the first round but it was good just to be there again!

Probably the biggest news in our lives right now is that we are going to have a little thiglet!!! We are so excited and so thankful that the Lord has blessed us with a child! I am around 8 weeks right now and the baby is due on June 24....yes, one day after our anniversary! So, the story is...I have been wanting a baby for a while now. Chris...not so much. Not that he didn't want one...I think he was just nervous about having one. So, I had talked to lots of people and many of them said it could take a long time to get pregnant....you just don't ever know. So, I told Chris what I had heard and expressed all my "what ifs" to him and we decided in September to come off of birth control. Little did I know that he was dealing with Fertile Myrtle here! ONE MONTH!!! That's it....all it took! Chris was SO excited....when I saw the "pregnant" on the test...I started hyperventilating!! lol I just had so many emotions running through me and didn't know how to respond. I am ECSTATIC! I can't wait to start fixing the nursery and finding out what it is! We went to the first Dr. appointment the other day (thought I would die waiting on the day) We saw the lil peanut and heard the heartbeat! Such a neat experience! And such a learning experience for Chris! Haha! But he was so excited! I go back December 10th and I hope to post pics and blog more between now and then!
