Weekend Wrapup

First off, I want to thank everyone for the wonderful comments you left yesterday and for all the FB comments, emails, and especially all the prayers for us and our baby! It completely blew my mind when I realized how many "strangers" we have praying for us! I am so overwhelmed by all the thoughts and prayers coming our way! THANK YOU so much!!!! Also, another thing that has been mentioned a lot over the past two days is how there were times many of you couldn't understand how I could continue on. I never had a time I felt that I couldn't keep going. It was never an option for me. Also, I felt that my blog was a great source for those that felt the same way I did, but couldn't express it. I wanted to let others in my situation know they were not alone and I am so thankful God allowed me to do that.

"He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When others are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us." II Corinthians 1:4

Also, this morning when I reread my post, I realized in my exhaustion last night, I left off the picture I wanted to have on here the most! This was our family on Thanksgiving.

Now, back to the regularly scheduled post!

We have had a quiet weekend. Friday night we met some friends at Chili's and went to bed early. We are so boring these days! Ha! Yesterday I got up and this is what I found when I looked out the window!!!

I wish I had woken up a little earlier than 8:00, because I had my lights on and I'm sure that would have looked awesome!

This is the street sign on the block up from us, I thought it looked cool whited out.



I let Spencer in the backyard to potty and he was NOT sure about this AT ALL! Ha! He only went about a foot out, peed, and ran back! NOT a fan!

After we got over the shock of actually having snow in GA and not only that but in DECEMBER!, I got ready and went to the mall to finish some shopping. I still have about 2 gifts to buy and a few to make, but overall, I am almost finished! Woohoo!

Today we just had a lazy day because it was sooooooo COLD outside (high was only in the low 40s) and I am just so tired. We finally got up and ready around 2 and went to Ankar's for a cheeseburger. YUM! Melissa came over later and took our Christmas pictures. As soon as I have them back, I'll post them! I can't wait to order our cards.

We have a busy week coming up, so I may disappear again. Sorry. It is just hard working, doing all I have to do at home, blogging, and being pregnant. I am just worn out! Have a good week if I don't write soon!

Just wanted to let you know again, how happy I am for you! I can't believe it's been 2 years since we started TTC together and met on the Bump! You SO deserve this girl! Big hugs to you both.

Congratulations! I have been a lurker for awhile (you are just so cute and I am in GA too!) and was so happy to see your news. I wish you a happy and healthy pregnancy. Enjoy every second of it!

I found your blog through Kelly's Korner and then you told me how to make my ornament wreath. I just caught up reading and saw you're pregnant! I just wanted to say CONGRATS! I know absolutely nothing about the journey of infertility but I do know the journey of motherhood and it is amazing! You have TONS of happiness coming your way! Congratulations again!

I'm Courtney's (Stephenson) cousin. I've been reading your blog for a little while now and am SO happy for you. I will continue to pray for you and your precious baby! Maybe someday we can meet up when we're in Chattanooga visiting Court, Todd & baby Lauren. Wishing ALL the best!

I have been reading your blog for months now after somehow stumbling upon it and it became an instantaneous daily read. I have been cheering for you since hearing about your journey towards becoming a mom. After getting caught up on your blog, my eyes are filled with tears and my heart with joy over the overwhelmingly exciting news! I have been praying so hard for you and will continue to do so. It is amazing how you are a complete stranger to me, yet how emotionally connected I have become in reading your story. We too struggled for over a year and had one miscarriage at 7 weeks and now have the most beautiful, spunky, loving little 2.5 year old daughter. It is such a hard journey and you will cherish your child even that much more because of it. I cannot wait to see how much fun you have as this next exciting chapter unfolds in your life! You, your husband, and your little jelly bean will continue to be in my daily prayers. Congratulations!
