Big news in our household

The headliners for this week are: We're PREGNANT again!

As most of my regular readers know, we had a miscarriage on Easter. This month, we would have found out the gender and other fun stuff, which has been on my mind lately. Saturday, I was really thinking on this. Little did I know, I was "with child" once again!

We wanted to share this news with you all instead of waiting a certain amount of time. One thing I have learned from the experiences of several friends this year is that you can lose a baby at any stage during the pregnancy, or even birth, and every moment should be celebrated.

We hope that you'll keep us in your prayers!

Here's a few photos to share with you all (not related to the pregnancy!).

Oh, and one more big God blessing- RAIN! We had RAIIIIN this weekend!
