Our Trip to Alabama

Jason and I took a road trip to Killen, Alabama, on Friday, 2/20/09, to visit a very good friend of mine, Cascia (pronounced Cash-a - like cash a check :), and her family. Cascia and I have been friends since we were 12 and in Drama class together in Middle School! The road trip was a blast (even though it was about 6 hours) and I even got Jason to stop at a rest stop even though we had watched a horror movie about rest stops the night before!! We had a great time on the drive and an even better weekend with Cascia and Todd and their boys (2 year old Jack, and 4 month old Adam)! Here are some pictures from our weekend!
This is Jack in his chair - this chair cracks me up! Isn't he handsome!

We hope you enjoyed and have a wonderful weekend!

We're Expecting!

Jason and I found out on 12/16/08 that we were expecting our first child! Of course we didn't believe the first test and had to take a second before calling Dr. Thatcher!

We had our first sonogram on 12/21/08 and could not really see anything, but got a good report. On 1/5/09 we had our first sonogram (where we could actually see something) at 7 weeks, 1 day and learned that our due date was 8/25/09 and saw the heart beating!
We had another sonogram on 1/12/09 at 8 weeks, 1 day and saw the little arms and legs!
Our next sonogram was on 1/20/09 at 9 weeks, 2 days! We saw the baby moving and it was the COOLEST!
This is my first belly shot at 8 weeks! (7 weeks, 6 days so I'm only showing 7 fingers)
My second belly shot at 9 weeks!10 weeks!
11 weeks!
12 weeks already!
We went walking on Erwin's Linear Trail during week 12!
13 weeks - Valentine's Day!
My Valentine's Day gift from my awesome husband!
And finally...14 weeks!!
