[ good news! ]

Wow, it's really been a long time since I've posted, so I thought instead of doing a lot of back-tracking at this point, I thought I would start with the most exciting news first...

Can you tell what the poster says that Angie is holding in the picture? It says "I'm going to be a big sister!" This is the picture we gave to our parents for Christmas to let them know another grand-baby is on the way. They were extremely excited and overjoyed as we are of course! I'm 7 weeks along, so we just found out the news fairly recently. Our new addition is due August 14th. Unfortunately I haven't been as lucky with this pregnancy and have been sick, I wish that I could call it "morning sickness", but instead I would call it "anytime-of-the-day" or sometimes "all-day sickness". Not fun! I'm just hopeful that it'll only last the 1st trimester!

So other than that we're doing really well. We were fortunate to enjoy a white Christmas this year, which was very exciting for Seattle! We actually got so much snow that we even got to do bit of sledding! We got to spend a lot of time with our families for Christmas and I flew out with my family last Friday for the weekend to go to Brad's wedding in Salt Lake. I got to spend time with my cousins, who I hadn't seen in a year while John and Angie had some great daddy-daughter bonding time at home.

All in all it's been a crazy month for my family with Christmas and Brad's wedding and my Mom still recovering from her surgery, but it was very rewarding. My Mom is doing much better, especially now that she knows she's going to be a Nana again, we're happy that we don't have to keep our secret any longer and most importantly, I now officially have a new sister! Congrats Brad and Krystal! We love you guys! I'll have to post those pictures later!

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!

YAY YAY YAY!!!!! Congratulations! I am soooo beyond excited for you guys. Sorry about being sick, that's really no fun. It will be really cool if Ben and I move up to Seattle next year. We'd be coming right around the time that you would have your baby. We would have fun. Congrats. Miss you.
