Our Super HUGE News!

Well, for those of you doubters out there that were worried about whether Jack and I were ever going to have a little one of our own...well, I am happy to announce that after almost five years of marriage, we are finally going to be having an addition to our family! I am about four months along and yes, I was pregnant during the whole appendix scare and yes we were extremely worried about the baby...all I can say is we were watched over CONSTANTLY and for both me and the baby, we have witnessed miracles that have strengthened my testimony. And well, our little baby is a fighter for sure. :o) But on to the good news. So, we found out what we were having today...and...drum roll please...IT'S A BOY! Jack said he knew from the start it was a boy. He even wrote down on a piece of paper that he thought it was a boy before our ultrasound today. Me, well, I thought it would be really fabulous to have a little girl to dress up...and knowing that was what I was hoping for, go figure, I kind of expected it to be a boy as well. ;o)
So, I guess our predictions were true and we will be looking forward to a little baby boy around February 10th/11th. It was such a blessing to see the baby today. After getting spoiled in the hospital with ultrasounds everyday to check up on the baby, it's hard to feel totally secure that everything is ok and well with baby when I don't get to see him as often as I used to. But from the looks of the ultrasound today, the nurse said everything looks healthy and normal. HOORAY! We are so excited and we are so grateful for all the prayers and love for us and on the baby's behalf. We know that they were heard and the health of the baby has greatly depended on them. We've linked a portion of our ultrasound to share with you all. Don't worry, this one doesn't show the gender. ;o) But it does show the baby's legs and arms and hands and best of all, it shows him giving his mom and dad a big thumbs up! :o) Enjoy!
P.S. The video loops, so once you see the error message, that's the end of it.

Our FIRST Dream Couch Purchase!!

We have waited FIVE years to buy our dream couch...well, actually, it's kind of taken us four for Jack and I to decide exactly what was a dream couch for both of us...but needless to say, it's been a LONG TIME!! But we did it!! Last week, with the help of our fabulous friends, the Bishop, Darin, and Matt, we got our couch fully set up in our apartment and it's PERFECT! It's EVERYTHING we've wanted in a couch. First off, the price was FABULOUS--thanks sooo much to Curtis for that, and second, it looks GREAT! It's a tan microsuede and just comfy, comfy, comfy, and best of all, it's got the CHAISE END!!! Jack and I are totally fighting over the chaise end when we both want to sit down on it, but we are both sharing and we are both enjoying the couch together soooo much! :o) The above picture is the store picture of the couch...I'll post pics of our actual couch soon. But, just wanted to share the good news with everyone. You will all need to come by and try it out. It really is fabulous!! :o)
