Its that time of year again

I love Christmas!!! If you don't believe me, just ask my husband. :) I was feeling a little down last week so Joe suggested I get the Christmas music out and start decorating (mind you this was before Thanksgiving). So I followed his advice and you know what, it worked. I put on some music and put up some lights and I felt much better. (I would add a picture of our lovely living room here but our laptop isn't working correctly at the moment so maybe I will work on loading one later.) There is just something magical about Christmas and I love it.
On another completely unrelated note: I bought my first pair of maternity pants yesterday and they are so comfortable. I now have one pair of pants that fits me at the moment. Guess I'm going to get my money's worth out of them by the time I have the little kiddo ;) Again I had hoped to add a picture of my little baby bump, but maybe later.

Ten weeks and counting...

This week Joe and I are ten weeks, which according to my faithful baby book (lent to me by my good friend Sarah), means our baby is size of a plum. I have also started to feel better which is a great blessing. It's times like the last couple of months that the full effect of Jesus telling Eve childbirth would be difficult really hits home and I haven't even gotten to the labor part :). As a young girl whenever I was sick I would always get really mad at Eve for sinning thinking it was all her fault I felt so icky. But even through all the nausea, I can still say it is so worth it. The miracle of life is just that, a miracle. To think that a little part of Joe and a little part of me is growing inside me always brings a smile to my face. So keep on growing little one. I pray you are healthy and that the Lord gives your mommy and daddy wisdom in the coming years to teach you as you grow.

Good News

Joe and I are expecting! Due the end of May. We are in week eight and are finally getting to tell people which makes it even more exciting.

So I decided to try this blogging thing. I love reading others blogs so why not? Thought I would start with a few before and after pictures of our new house.
Here is the ugly pink carpet that smelled like cat pee. :{Here is the living room without all the nasty carpet but before the sanding of the floors. I would sand again because it made such a big difference but it was a little more time consuming than I thought it would be.
Here is the living room so far. I still have to put up pictures, but other than that it is coming together.
This is our bedroom. Pretty self explanatory. And the picture below is of the rug I found at Lowes. I love this rug!

The dinning room. There is a giant picture window on the other side of the table but I couldn't get a good picture of it.
And here's a picture just for fun. :)
