Almost Done!

Memorial Day 2010-
So I never thought we would be putting a crib together so soon but we are so excited for little Addy to be here! Even though this wasn't our plan, we are so thankful God has given her to us and can't wait to start our little family together! God has an amazing plan for our life and I cant wait to experience every bit of it with Brent and Addison!

Daddy putting her crib together! He did a GREAT job!

The finished product!

I love her bedding!

Brent brought her back her 1st stuffed animal from China... so we had to put it in her crib!

Her quilt!

As you can tell I wasn't much help lol
(Everyone has been asking to see a baby bump picture...
So here you go... I look like I have a basketball in my shirt! :) )

Thank you all so much for all your kind thoughts and prayers! I can not explain how excited we are for Addison to be here! Only 2 more months!

This week I start summer school..booo! But its only a month so I shouldn't complain! Brent also has to go back to work this week after being off for almost 3 weeks... I know he is not that excited but at-least that will keep him busy and help his month go by faster... then he will be moving down to Fayetteville! YAY! I can not wait :)

Hope everyone has a great week!

Knee-High in Feathers and TuTu's!

This weekend we had our flame dance recital! We were all knee-high with 70 little girls with feathers and tutu's on! :) The turn out was great. Amy, Jordan, and I worked so hard and it paid off! We had so much fun getting the girls ready, practicing and just hanging out with each other.

Amy, Jordan and I (teacher dance)

I was so busy running up and down the stairs, getting girls to the stage and making sure they had the right costumes on, I only got one picture :( but this is one of my little boys Sawyer! He did a dance to Your the one that I want from Grease.. sooo cute! :)

Special thanks to:
Amy and Jordan- This year was so much fun! I'm so glad we became such great friends! I'm gonna miss yall!
My mom and all the moms that helped (Jordan and Amys)- Thanks so much for getting those 70 little girls ready in their room... even though they cried and it was hot! :)

I can not wait till my mom and me get to do this with Addison! I know Brent is excited to come to every one of them!

Today I am 31 weeks! I can not believe Addison is almost here! I am so ready to meet our sweet little girl! Please keep us in your prayers that she is healthy and the rest of my pregnancy goes well!

Hope everyone has a great Memorial Day weekend!

Yay Brents coming home!

Tuesday night- Brent is finally coming home! I am sooooo excited to pick him up from the airport and give him a big hug and kiss! :) 2 weeks in a different country then Addison and I is way to long. Please keep him in your prayers that he has a safe flight back!

Today I am 30 weeks! I can not believe how fast my pregnancy has gone by so far. My tummy has grown so much in just the last two weeks.. its slowly getting harder to do normal things. Its so neat though to lay in bed and watch her move in my tummy and be able to see her change positions :) She really is Brent and I's little miracle.

This week is gonna be pretty busy.... Samuel has a baseball game every night and so does Caleb (He hit his 1st home- run today! He was soooo excited! Glad I was there to see it!) . Then this weekend we have our Flame Dance Recital. YAY! The girls and boys will be soo cute in the costumes. Thursday we have tech rehearsal.. Friday we have dress rehearsal.. and Saturday is the show! My mom and I are gonna have a girls night Friday night and get a hotel in Fort Smith so we don't have to drive back and fourth. Cant wait till we get to do this with little Addison! :)

Hope everyone has a great week!

The Start of Summer!

So I haven't blogged in a while! We have been so busy with finishing up school and getting everything ready for the summer. I was so proud of myself, I finished this semester with a 3.75! woohoo! I told Brent that Addison made me smart... his reply was " only because she is half mine!" .. got to love him! :) So here is a little catch up on our life.....

May 8, 2010
This was a big day for Brent! He finally graduated College with a degree in Business! YAY! I can not tell you how proud I am of him. He has accomplished so much. I know he is excited to see what God brings his way!

Getting ready to get his diploma!

YAY! You did it!!

Brent with his Grandparents!

Happy Mothers Day!

This was such a special day for my mom and I both. It was my first "almost" mothers day! I got so many text and cards from my friends and family. My mom got me the prettiest silver cup and spoon for Addison.. Cant wait to use them on special occasions! :)

I can not tell you how thankful I am to have my mom in my life. She has been so uplifting and supportive. I hope that when Addison is born I can be as good of a role model and Christin mother to my little girl as she has been to me over my life! Thank you for everything you have done.... I love you MOM!

Happy Birthday Mom! She had a good weekend.. two days of celebration! We went to lunch and also went shopping for a little bit before I had to head back to Fort Smith.

I also had a doctors appointment today. It was my glucose test... I had to drink this horrible tasting fruit punch drink and then got my blood taken. The best part of the appointment was hearing little Addison's heart beat. It was at 14o, Dr. Sarver said everything looked and sounded good! Thank u God for giving us a healthy baby girl so far!

This was my last day in Fort Smith... It took Emily and I all day to clean our apartment and pack up our cars. It was sad to leave all of our friends and sisters but I'm sooooo glad to be out of that apartment/school and Fort Smith. I'm excited for this summer... Brent moving to Lowell :), getting ready for Addison, and just relaxing.

May 13, 2010
Brent left for China today... Well almost.. because of the storms all there flights have been delayed. He is stuck in Chicago right now until 9:55 pm and then taking a little detour to London for the night then flying to China. They are suppose to arrive at 8:00 Saturday morning! He is sooo excited and I know ready to get there! This is gonna be a great experience for him. .... Now for me I am not AS excited as he is! haha ;) I'm already ready for him to be home and he hasn't even been gone a day yet. Please keep him in your prayers these next 2 weeks as he is traveling around the world!

Well thats about all that has gone on over the past couple of weeks! This weekend will be busy with one of my Delta Gamma sisters (Emily my big) wedding! I am sooo excited for her special day! She will be a beautiful bride!

A mind of her own...

I can already tell Addison is defiantly going to be a handful and very active! lol She decides what way I lay.. When I sleep.. and when she wants me to get up. I have noticed recently that when I'm laying a certain way and she doesn't like it, she kicks me in the side... also when she is ready for me to get up she moves around constantly until I do and then she stops! Brent and I are gonna have a very active little girl! I'm 27 weeks tomorrow... We are getting so close!! :) Im so thankful that God has blessed us in so many ways!

This week was our last week of classes. It's exciting (and kind of scary) to think I have finished year 3 of college and Brent is graduating! This summer really is gonna be a new adventure for us both but I am excited to see where it takes us!

I thought this was soo cute! My dog Genevieve has found a new place to lay... Addison's car seat! I think she realized that it goes in the car... and she loves riding in the car, so when we ask her if she is ready to go.. she jumps right in! lol I just wounder what she will do when little miss. Addison gets here.

Monday I was also able to go to the last Delta Gamma chapter. It was Emily's senior night. We all had a great time laughing, crying, and just seeing everyone again!

Some of my Sweet sisters and best friends!

My sweet littles, Kaci and Brittany!

This next week is going to be crazy! I can not tell you how ready Brent and I are for finals to be over! We are both officially done on Thursday!! WooHoo!!
Please pray for us that we do great and finish out strong!
LOve you all
Have a great week!
