Surprise Photos

So, I know this is a little out of order, but these are the pictures of my family when we told them that we were preggo. We had to take a few shots because people didn't really think that Tony was serious when he told everyone on the countdown. I love how Bauer (my nephew) isn't interested in the least bit in what is going on, but in his defense, he is 3.

Pre surprise shot.

Taken right as Tony said it. I'm not really sure what my older brother is doing with the ball on his head, but oh well.
This had to be the best reaction shot out of them all. Aubrey... I would say I'm sorry for posting it, but in all reality, I'm not ;)

Oh Baby!

So, I know it won't be a surprise to some of you, but for those of you who don't know.... We're having a baby!! We found out right before Christmas, and thought that since we have already told our family, we would share the news with those who like to look at our blog. We are really excited about it because we have been trying for a few months and it finally stuck this time. We are due around the end of August/beginning of September. So, I will keep you updated on how things go with my appointments. If you have any advice, let me know. :)

Christmas Tree, Mini Thanksgiving, and Fishing

Its been a while since I have had something to post. My friends wanted to see a picture of my tree and so I snapped some shots of that and found these other ones that I thought you might be interested in looking at.
We made off like bandits with this tree. We were going to go buy a real one because you can get trees starting at $14.95, but we went to Wal-Mart to pick up our decorations first and found this little pre-lit beauty for $35!! We couldn't pass it up because it was that or 2 years of buying the "Charlie Brown" tree at the lot for $14.95. The ornaments were $5 for 24 (so we got 2 different colors) and then we went to Michaels and spent a little more on ribbon to wrap and make bows. So here it is!!

Here is a close up of all the elements we used in our tree. The ribbon didn't match perfectly, but I think it still turned out really well. Thanks, Audra for helping me make the bows :)This is what it looks like with the lights off. Yes, our star is none other than an ornament missing its hook cap :\
And with the lights on :)

Next on the agenda is our Mini Thanksgiving. We had a wonderful time at the Millers for a real thanksgiving, but I wanted to make another pie, and have an evening that didn't involve cuts and month-long bruises. Tony Made the hens, the green bean casserole, and the candied yams, and I made the mashed potatoes, the pie and the stuffing. How's that for team work?!
The Spread. Doesn't that Cornish Hen look tasty???
Our neighbor Audra was out of town so we thought that her husband Tony would want something a little more satisfying than cereal or hot dogs on Sunday.
Me digging in! Don't you love my flannel PJ pants?
Tony displaying the yummy pie I made.

Lastly, Here is our fishing trip we took up in the mountains with his dad. I had a good time once I my medicine kicked in. Unfortunately, it kicked in after we had finished our bumpy drive.
Me and Tony caught a fish. Ok, He caught it and I pulled the poor sucker in. So, I caught 1/2 a fish.
I mainly took pictures up in the mountains, I thought this was cool looking.

My manly Fisherman.

Photo Tag

So as previously stated by the instructions I chose the 4th picture in the 4th folder. Well This is it! Dulce's First Birthday Photo. He is my older sisters dog and I thought the picture was amusing so I kept it. He is a cute dog despite the fact that he is practically naked (due to skin mites :( ). He has a tender heart and a big mamas boy. I love him. Anyway, there it is! I tag Emily, Aubrey, Becca, Bethany, and Jen. :) This is a fun one and takes no time at all so just go to the 4th folder and select the 4th picture and post it!

Look What I Can Do!!

So as many of you know I have been trying to get my blog lookn' savvy for a long time. I had been looking at the 'cutest blog on the block' in utter bewilderment by how they got their blogs so cute. Well! I finally figured it out (with the help of TCBOTB). This is my first attempt at the whole scrapbook look, and I would have to say it looks pretty snazzy. On top of all this I got to mess around with Photoshop all day long. It's not completely centered, but I have all Christmas season to figure it out. Anyway... tell me what you think!
