Baby on board!!!

Nausea, fatigue, weight gain, mood swings and more....... bring it on! On the morning of July 22nd, we discovered something very exciting! You guessed it, we're pregnant! The due date is ironically April 1st 2011 and we're both thrilled!

Megan took the test at 5:00 AM after being unable to sleep. Despite her desire to go running full speed screaming it to Villi, she thought better of it and decided to plot. After brainstorming and shaking with excitement for over an hour, she finally had her plan.

She immediately started making breakfast, meanwhile deciding exactly what to say and precisely how to say it. As soon as the food was ready she set the table and raced off to find a bracelet box to put the test in. After rummaging for what seemed like forever she finally found one. Quickly she decorated it with pink and blue hand and footprint foam stickers we just happened to have and went to wake Villi.

We sat down at the table and began to eat. After a while Megan said she had something important to talk about. Immediately Villi got an, (oh crap!) look on his face... He though he'd done something wrong. If he'd only known.

She told him he looked worried and to calm down, then continued by recreating the way Villi proposed at Thanksgiving dinner. She told him all she was grateful for and with tearful eyes told him she was most grateful for communication. (Exactly what he'd said right before pulling out the ring.) Surprised that he hadn't caught on yet, Megan then reached for the box and got down on one knee. Villi, still looking confused, started to ask what was going on. Then Megan took of the lid. He was absolutely stunned and speechless as tears filled his eyes. He quickly picked her off the floor in the worlds longest and most loving embrace. The rest is history!

Here's our little one's first picture at 10 weeks.

Time to catch up!

Well, it's certainly been a while but I would really like to catch up on my blogging.... 2009 brought a lot of exciting things! After our reception in May we had a very fun summer! We did a lot more shooting and spent several fun weekends at our property in Duchesnee.

We certainly wore Elmo out though. This is what he looked like on every ride home. We loved how well he slept at night after playing with the other dogs. So in August, we added our latest addition, Zoe!!! We all love her tons!!!

The first of september we closed on a house in Eagle Mountain. We were both thrilled to start our new life here and have loved every minute of it so far!

October we enjoyed our first halloween in the new house, but not before a nice trip to the hospital that morning.

Of course Megan still managed to find the energy to dress up the dogs that night. All the kids that came loved it!
