2nd shower, pictures, getting closer...

Time is clicking by...very quickly!  Since I last posted, Keith and I were given another shower by my home church, Huntsville Church of Christ.  It was a wonderful shower!!!

During Christmas, my dear, sweet, sister-in-law, Kristi, took some GREAT maternity pictures for us.  These are just a few of the 117 pictures that she took!!! :)  

As you may have guessed, we decided on a name, Charleston Cole Patrick.  And we can't wait to meet him!!  Today, I am 36 weeks, 4 days. 

This picture was taken at 35 weeks, 3 days.

I hope to post pictures of the finished nursery very soon!!! :)

We're having a...


To celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary, we had a gender reveal party!  We had a cookout at Charles and Debbie's house.  And we had a blast!! :) 

To reveal the gender, Keith and I made a pinata and the kids got to take a turn at busting it.  It took a while... we made it really strong! :) I think everyone is very excited about the new baby boy that we will welcome in February.

Baby update!

Yesterday, we had the anatomy scan.  So far, Baby P is looking good.  Heartbeat is 150 and weighs 8 ounces!!  The nurse was able to tell gender, but we haven't found out yet! We are going to have a gender reveal for us and our family on our 5th wedding anniversary! I hope we can wait!!! :)  Keith and I are so excited and anxious to start working on the nursery!

BIG changes!

I know it has been awhile since I have posted anything.  I have been SO busy.  There isn't any way I can catch up everything that has happened.  So I will start with the recent...I just finished my Master's from the University of West Alabama.  I started last August and turned in my last paper yesterday.  It is a GREAT feeling knowing I am finished!!!  Now, I am just wanting for that diploma to show up in the mail!  
More importantly, Keith and I have found out that we are going to have a BABY!!!!  We are SO excited.  As of right now, I am due February 2013.  
This picture was taken when I was 9 weeks, 5 days.  I am 10 weeks, 1 day now.  Baby is measuring 3 cm long, and heartbeat is 182.  We ask that you pray for us as we start on this new journey that God has blessed us with!!! 

In other news, I wanted to post that Papaw passed way May 22.  My family and I were so saddened by his loss, but I know he is in a much better place.  He is with the Lord and his wife!  I miss him everyday though! 

This picture was taken at his 98th birthday, June 2011.  He was just shy of making it to his 99th!

I plan to do much better about blogging!!! :)

Last year on August 20, I opened our front door to leave for work and found an older, sickly looking beagle standing on the porch.  Someone was walking by with their dog and she ran out to them.  This person didn't recognize her and we both thought she looked very ill.  I decided to take her to the vet.  It was very hot and I knew she wouldn't make it if left out in the heat for several more days.  They took her in at the vet and ran several tests on her.  She was heartworm positive, had a hernia, never been fixed, and at least 7 years old.  After MUCH discussion, Keith and I decided to try to get her back in good health.  Our vet said there was no guarantee she would make it.  Oh, she was 12 pounds that day.  We decided to call her Annie!  Mama and Daddy's anniversary is on the 21st, so I thought it was appropriate.

And now, one year later, she is doing GREAT!  We've had a tough year with her.  Trying to house break her, several incidents with her stomach resulting in a late night trip to the MSU vet clinic, teaching her not to jump, walking on leash, and not eating EVERYTHING that she sees.  It has been hard, but I have to admit she is a sweet, sweet dog.  She now weighs 25 pounds, has lots of energy, and does her best to keep up with Gracie.  I'm not sure Gracie loves her yet, but they manage.  It's a good feeling to know we saved her.  :)
