Yup, it's true...

We have a bun in the oven! I found out I was pregnant at the end of September and we are thrilled! I'm about thirteen weeks and feeling great! The first eight weeks or so I felt a little sick off and on but for the most part I have felt incredibly well. I have felt so well that I was a little nervous when we went in for our first ultrasound wondering if there was really something growing inside me! But when we saw the baby everything finally felt real and the little thing was practically doing flips, moving all over the place! It's pretty amazing to see your baby for the first time. I'm due at the end of June (seems so far away).

Speaking of babies, my darling sister-in-law had an adorable baby boy in November. Little Easton is the first baby in the family so we are super excited! We get to see him for the first time over Christmas... we can't wait!

Justin is excited to be a daddy. He always refers to the baby as a "he" but says he will love a girl just as much. I think he just wants a playmate. His latest hobbies are things only boys (at least I think only boys) really enjoy. He has been hunting and trapping with his friend Mark and also solo quite a bit lately and just finished a wood-shop class where he built me a beautiful chest to keep blankets in. It turned out really pretty, the pictures don't do it justice.

Oh the orange vest... never thought Id marry a hunter...

Justin brought me to class one night. It was actually kinda fun watching him work. I even got to help a little and took pictures the rest of the time.

Other than that, life is pretty much the same. We are excited for the holidays and looking forward to our trip in California. We hope everyone has a safe and wonderful Christmas! We love you all!
