At long last, I blog again

I always mean to write new posts.  Not like my life is uber interesting, and I doubt people even remember I have a blog since it's been so long since I've written.  But here I am once again. 

There really isn't even a point in trying to catch up with everything from the last two years, so we'll start from the beginning of this year (there's really not that much!). 

January- March:  We rung in the new year but can't even remember if we even did anything.  We did our annual Whistler trip with dear friends Dan and Kellie and Dan's sister Amy and her husband Nathan joined us this year.  It was a blast.  I love Whistler.  (PICS WILL COME SOON!)  Valentine's Day we had a nice dinner.  I'm sure it was really nice but again, I can't remember.  In March we had Brandon's birthday which we celebrated with a pajama party for him and Kellie since their birthdays are so close together.  It was good times.

April-June:  In late April we found out that we are EXPECTING!  Our first child is due to arrive on or around December 24th.  We are very excited and can't wait to meet the little bean.  In May I went to Wenatchee with Shawn and her sisters to spend time at their parents house for Memorial Day and it was nice to get in the sun.  Unfortunatley June wasn't the best of months, we had to lay our wonderful pup Chelsea down to rest.  It was hard on me for quite awhile and even now I'm still tearing up.  She was doing great until the last day or so when she started having seizures.  She lived a great life and we will always think of her and miss her greatly.  On a happier note, we celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary.  We went shooting at the range and then went out to dinner in Mill Creek. 

July:  For the 3rd of July we packed up the tent trailer and went to Big Lake to Shawn and Nick's house for the 2nd annual Big Lake Bash.  Big Lake celebrates the 3rd of July up at the lake and we had fun with great friends, food and fireworks.  Can't wait to go again next year!  the actual 4th of July we spent with our neighbors watching the firework shows in our neighborhood.  Always a good time when we're hanging out with the neighbors.  We also found out the gender of the little one in my belly this month but our gender reveal party titled "Waddle It Be?" that is being hosted by Shawn will be August 5th.  I cannot wait for that.  I have great friends and family that will be attending so hopefully I'll get some great pics.

SO that's all for now, but I am planning to start posting  (well, TRY) weekly with pregnancy updates but we'll see how it goes.  I still need to take my first "belly" picture.
