A Christmas present from Mother Nature.

When we got back home we found that the ice and snow had built up under our roof tiles and the warmth of the house melted it into our ceiling.


An early gift from some very excited future grandparents.

When we told my parents last night that we were pregnant they told us that they had already purchased some baby furniture! Also my dad told us that it would be a girl. I guess there is no doubt that they are ready for this next stage of their lives!

It’s official

So it is happening. We are having a baby! We took one of these:

and I guess that is as sure as you can be. At my first doctor’s appointment I asked the nurse if they were going to do some other, more accurate test to check my work, but no, she said the at-home test is as accurate as anything they could do. I told her I was just surprised that it happened so quickly and she said I must be “fertile Myrtle.”

This guy has no idea what is about to happen in this house.
