Baby Abbey's First Concert!

Friday, February 26, 2010

So I'm a huge sucker for country music and concerts so whenever I get a chance to enjoy both... I'm all in! Unfortunately, Ryan could care less about both. But... fortunately, Amy Hardin is a sucker for both, too! We're going next Thursday to hear George & Reba at the FedEx Forum and I'm so excited... in fact- changed my playlist on the blog to honor George himself! I'll be sure to post some pictures! Now...if I could just find some jeans that will button....

As for the baby, everything is good! I went to the doctor last week and he said I was gaining weight (no, really?!?) and the baby was measuring perfectly! I can't get over my growing belly... seriously- where does this come from! Ryan often catches me looking in the mirror at my new belly and growing behind and assures me that it's only getting bigger... ha- thanks Ryan! I go back to the doctor in the March so continue to pray that this baby is growing and healthy!

My Bible verse of the day: 1 John 4:9 "This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him." I learned this as little girl, but wow does it put a new spin on things when I'm now expecting a child of my own. I already love this baby and can only imagine what the world is going to be like when he or she is growing up. I can't imagine sending my child out into this world to save others... especially without cell phones! :) Thank you, Lord, for loving us so much!

Hope everyone has a wonderful Friday!

February Snow

Monday, February 15, 2010

Last Monday we got almost 6 inches of unexpected snow in Byhalia! I woke up to the alarm on my phone going off and realized I had 2 text messages... both of them said the exact same thing... "look outside." Immediately, I jumped up and ran into the bathroom to our big window and sure enough... SNOW! Ryan and I were like little kids... we got the 4-wheeler out and played! I was determined to make snow ice-cream so we rode the 4-wheeler down to the grocery store and made ourselves sick eating so much! Since we don't have any children... yet... playing in the snow, I took some pictures of our house and land!

A Little Abbey

Friday, February 5, 2010

Hey Everyone...

I wanted to let you all know that Ryan & I will be welcoming a new addition in September! We are so excited and really feel that God has blessed us in more ways than we could ever imagine. I found out almost 3 weeks ago and we were able to tell our families a couple weeks ago. We (Ryan) has proceeded tell everyone at work (which includes 500+ members) so I figured it is time to share our good news with everyone.

As most of you know, Mattie and Reid (my neice & nephew), are my heart and soul and I couldn't share this good news with my parents without them being apart of it. I made them shirts that read "I'm going to be a BIG Cousin." My sweet sister was able to take some pictures of us telling my parents so I'm going to post those for y'all to see. I go back to the doctor in a couple of weeks so pray everything is good!
