Getting Ready for Willow

So yesterday E and I started working on Willow's room. We unpacked some of the items we bought, arranged her furniture and started decorating of course. Here are some pics of the early stages of our work. She is going to have oodles and oodles of butterflies in her room!! There will be more pics to come of course so stay tuned. :)

Winter Solstice

Today is the shortest day of the year or as some people remind me the LONGEST NIGHT. Kind of a glass 1/2 empty or 1/2 full scenerio huh?

However, today is also my parents 43rd Anniversary! What were you doing 43 years ago today? As I am a little younger than that my memory is a little hazy . . .

Congratulations Mom and Dad. Your marriage and relationship are an inspiration to both of us.

I looked online to see what the present is for 43 years of marrige and it says Travel. I think this is approprate as looking into your future I see some upcoming travel in April of next year. So I think you will get to celebrate in style. I also looked forward to the gift for 44 years of marriage (planning ahead). According to the website I was on you buy groceries to celebrate 44 years of marriage. Groceries for 44 years of marriage am I wrong or does this seem like the worst gift ever? I am thinking it is good I looked ahead cause we need a year to plan something more special and exciting than buying groceries. :)

Congrats! Love you both!!!

PS. I included a link to the site in case you think I am making this stuff up. Note I am not that creative. :)

It's a girl!

We had our 20 week ultrasound this week and found out the wonderfully fantastic news that we are going to have a little girl!!! She was very photogenic during our appointment and at one point turned toward us and kept opening and closing her mouth. She was swallowing but it looked just like she was talking to us. Below are some pics of my baby bump and our little Willow!

One happy little girl!
