And Now for the REAL Reason This Blog Was Started

Well, I can now tell you why Brad and I decided to start this blog. We wanted to be able to keep our family and friends updated about our PREGNANCY!! That's right, Brad and I are expecting our first baby!! We are so excited!!

We found out Christmas morning at 6:00 am. That's right...Christmas Eve night under the cover of having to go get my brother some migraine medicine we went to Walgreen's and while we were there we picked up the wonderful home pregnancy test. After reading the instructions thoroughly I decided to take the test in the morning. At 6:00 I couldn't sleep any longer so I decided to just do it. Much to my surprise it was positive. I decided not to wake up Brad, only because our niece was sleeping in the room with us, so after 2 VERY LONG hours he finally woke up and I told him the news!! He was precious!! Needless to say, we were both very shocked but so excited all at the same time.

Of couse me being me I couldn't wait to tell anyone and Brad being Brad he had to take one more test to know for sure! So on Christmas day poor Brad was sitting in the Walgreen's parking lot waiting for them to open at 9:00. Needless to say that one was positive too.

We told my parents that morning when we were all opening presents. I stuck a note in a sack disguised as a present and of course the second she opened it she started crying. (Hince the picture at the top of the page) Then my sister in law Danielle turned to me and said, "Are you pregant?"

At Brad's parents house it takes a while to open presents and Brad could not take it anymore because his mom kept not picking up the one present he wanted her to open so finally he said, "Hey mom open that sack right there!" I think Bill and Barabara were the most shocked of everyone. They will be first time grandparents, but I think they are very excited too!
We are so excited to start a family together and can't wait to meet our new child, although we have a LONG time to wait! Please keep us in your prayers!
