2008 is coming to an end!

Wow! This has been a very eventful year... Tim & Melaina got married, Aubrie and Makayla were born, Connor was born, my parents celebrated 30 years married, Lainey was born, we found out we were expecting, we found out we were expecting TWINS, our one year anniversary, Gabriel was born, Shelby and Nate got engaged, we found out the twins are GIRLS, and I graduated. I'm sure I have left out some things but WOW!! 

We had a very blessed Christmas with both families. I love spending time with everyone. I got to spend a week in Oklahoma with Jen & Melaina and then went to Fort Worth for 4 days to see the rest of the family. It is always so much fun when we can all get together. By the end of our vacation, I was definitely ready to be at my own home but leaving Fort Worth always makes me very sad. While I did want to come home, I just want our home to be in Fort Worth! I just knew that I would be moving back sometime around now and for obvious reasons that isn't a possibility right now. I don't know when we will be able to move and it really gets me down when I think about it. I don't like to admit it but I am so scared about having the twins! I'm not sure why God thought that I could handle it! I don't want to sound like I'm over-reacting because so far they are healthy and I am very thankful. But I just don't have the support system that I need in Abilene. I have so many amazing family members and friends in the Fort Worth area that I need now more than ever. Oh well! I know things will end up working out because they always do. 

I hope everyone has had a great holiday season and I'll post again in the new year!

Two healthy baby GIRLS!!

I still think I'm in shock. I just knew we were going to have at LEAST one boy. I had convinced myself of it but nope! It has been triple verified. We have two beautiful baby girls on the way. We are so excited and cannot wait to start getting things in order. We also find out the we have a c-section date set already. We went to the doctor this morning and she let us know she went ahead and set a date for a c-section. She said it didn't mean we had to have a c-section but she didn't want to fight for a OR. So the twins arrival date (unless they come earlier) is.... APRIL 14TH! It is absolutely surreal to have a definite date. It is coming so fast and we aren't even close to ready. So our beautiful girls will be here in 4 the very latest! That is insane! I already have so many cute things for them and can't wait to get me. 

I also graduated on Friday!! It feels so great to be done and before the babies are here makes it even better. I felt like I would never finish and then all the sudden it's over! I had the best time with all my wonderful family and friends that came in. I am blessed to have some of the best friends! Well, I'm going to try and update this more and all add pictures later. Have a great week!
