January 23!

I got wonderful news this afternoon that an official date has been set for JonParker’s arrival! He will be here on January 23! I can not wait!!! Time will seem to creep so slow until then. Jill went to the doctor today, and everything looks great. I will be an Aunt of three in only a few more weeks!!!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I can’t believe it is 2008 already. It seems as if 2007 flew by so fast! Christmas was very busy hopping from one family function to the next, but it was well worth it as always. The top picture is of me, my sister, Mom and aunt. A few years ago, we began a tradition where we all wear matching Christmas shirts on Christmas Day. I am not really a “Christmas Shirt Wearing” kinda girl, but I make an exception one day a year. ;) The middle picture is of me, my sister, Mom and Dad and the final shot is of me and my nephews. Kelly had to work on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, so I went to his Grandparent’s on his Dad’s side Christmas Eve night as well as my Grandparent’s on my Dad’s side. Then, I was at Kelly’s Grandparent’s house on his Mom’s side for breakfast Christmas morning and to my parent’s house for Christmas lunch. Then, we had Christmas dinner and Kelly’s parents. So, I kept the roads hot and ate until I thought I would explode! Kelly and I were in Memphis with the Gaskins for New Years. We went up early for the Liberty Bowl and stayed through New Year’s Day. We had a lot of fun bringing in 2008! Of course, I forgot my camera at home, so I don’t have any pictures to post. I generally always have New Year’s resolutions, but I honestly haven’t made any this time around…other than to get in our house before 2009 (I’ll save that for a future blog!). 2007 was full of many blessings for which I am so grateful, having another nephew on the way and the construction of our new house are just a few! Kelly also has a new cousin on his side of the family and another on the way as well. We are looking forward to what the future has in store for 2008! From our home to yours, best wishes for a blessed new year!
