Saturday

here we go....

ok, so it's a new year and it's gonna be a big one for our little family.  my mother-in-law and sister-in-law have been "encouraging" me to start a blog for the last, oh, 8 months, so here it is.  hopefully it's as easy as they say it is...  

the Lord has blessed us beyond belief and we are expecting our first child in just a few short weeks --  the official due date is valentine's day.  no, we don't know if it is a girl or a boy, and yes we have names but we aren't telling!  

we rang in the new year with my mom and dad (abbi and pops).  they were here for 4 or 5 days after Christmas and man, did we put them to work!  we have to put our house on the market this spring, so we went ahead and did some "pre-staging."  we painted two rooms, filled up a storage unit, and filled up my dad's yukon to haul stuff back to tupelo.  needless to say, we are all exhausted!  

below are some pics from our work days:
