Fun at the circus!

Here are the pictures of us at the circus that I promised a long time ago. It was a great time and we were blessed by my sister's husband with free tickets which made it even better. We also had the joy of going with them and my parents and seeing all the kids have a great time together. They rode the animals, watched the amazing acts and munched on popcorn and funnel cake. We couldn't have had a better time and it was Karina's first time at the circus and I think she would have joined them if we had let her. Hehehe. So enjoy the fun with us as you browse these shots....

We're having a baby!!

This is going to have to be short because I am VERY tired, but I guess that news goes along with announcing that we are going to have a baby!!!! Yes, Jeff and I found out a month ago that we are expecting a new and wonderful little blessing and the baby is due to arrive June 13, as much as you can trust in a due date. Hehehehe. We are so very excited and and joyous. God sure has perfect timing too for Jeff will be graduating from college next July. It will be so wonderful to have him home more. Karina will almost be three and I'm sure she will be quite the little mommy. I am also very thrilled that, Lord willing, we will be able to make it to our big family reunion in July.

I know that picture won't look like a baby to most of you, but if you can tell the head is on the left and the hands and feet are sticking out a little to the right. The baby started to wiggle a little when we were looking at it and it was so very neat to see this little life moving inside of me though I can't feel it yet. Our appointment went really well and rather quick since I didn't have many questions. Our doctor said everything looks great and he will see us next month. I remember being so thrilled at each and every appointment when I was pregnant with Karina and I know this one will be just the same. It is such a special treat to hear that sweet little heart beating!! God is so amazing!!

I am actually feeling really good at almost 10 weeks along so that is a praise! I sure do enjoy those afternoon naps that my little lady takes though and am ready to go to bed a little earlier every night too.
Karina was so cute looking at the pictures for the first time and I am sure she really didn't know what to make of this little thing I was calling a baby. For I know it didn't look like her cute little baby doll she has here at home. A big thanks to Auntie Em again for keeping her that day. Here are a couple pics my sister in law took when I got back from the appointment.

I hope you all are doing well and finding joy in all the little things as this year draws to a close. Don't forget to shower those you love with love and don't go too crazy in this holiday season. Yes, it is here. :) I'll write again real soon.
