Our Best Christmas Gift

We had an excellent Christmas, and if I ever finish sorting through all the photos & videos, I might actually post about it. Until then, this will have to do. It's a picture of our favorite Christmas present this year...

Alex wore this shirt to both family Christmas parties to share some exciting news with the family!

This isn't really public knowledge just yet, but since most of you already know, and the few of you who are just hearing the news know how to keep a secret...well, now you know!

There will be a new little baby making his (her?) debut in August 2009. We are THRILLED!!! After 2.5 years of hoping for a baby, we finally got pregnant with Alex. It was definitely easier this time around! God is good!!

We are thankful and very excited...and one of us is nauseous, but that's just part of the experience, right? :)

We hope you all had a terrific Christmas, too!

Emma had a "Big Sister" t-shirt to tell everyone we were pregnant with Jackson. It actually took people a little bit to catch on. It was so fun to see the look on their faces! We're so excited for you guys!
