That is the possible number of offers we have on our house! I still can't believe it. We already have 2 offers and we might have a third coming in tomorrow. This is WAY more than we could have ever dreamed of. Shoot we were just praying to sell before the baby comes. It is looking like we might be moved a good 2 months before she makes her arrival. AMEN!

God is good. We will keep you posted.

Thanksgiving, house, baby and stuff...

Grace snacking on the dog!


That can describe in one word best how I feel. Although things in our lives are CRAZY right now, really things couldn't be going better.
Thanksgiving week was wonderful. We spent the first part of the week trying to find areas we like. It went well and we found a few neighborhoods that we are in love with. Grace spend a few days with her Mema and PopPop in East Texas. They spoiled her lots, so I know she had a blast. We got to East Texas on Wednesday and basically just relaxed. We hung out around the house, watched lots of movies, celebrated my nephew's 3rd birthday and ate too much food. We were sad to leave on Sunday, but ready to get home. Grace doesn't sleep very well when we aren't at home, so it was nice to just be back and get some sleep.
Kaleb ready to dig in!

Grace found a new friend... Annie. She carried the dog around all weekend... she was just the right size!

Our realtor had an open on house on Sunday and it went okay. We had a few interested people come out. The best news is that we have had one of those people already come back to see it again today. Then this afternoon we have 3 more showings and on Thursday we have a couple coming in from California to see it!! So who knows... maybe an offer will be in the near future. I just can't believe it... the house hasn't even been on the market for 2 weeks. Trying not to get my hopes up, but we are just so excited!
This morning I had a doctors appointment. We got to have another ultrasound to make sure the baby is still a girl. And she is! She looks great. Very healthy and active. Only 14 more weeks till she makes her big appearance!

Then we ran from the OB's office to the Pediatricians office... well we actually drove since they are 3o minutes from one another. Grace has been coughing for a couple weeks now. Ends up she has a sinus infection. But with a little medicine she should back to normal in a couple days. AMEN... I need my happy baby back!

So I guess that is it for now. OH YEAH... I got a new laptop. Basically an early Christmas present, but we had to give back our old computer since it was Adam's company! And since he is leaving we thought they might want it back! I've never had a computer of my very own that was new. I had my parents old hand-me-down in college, until Adam built me one to last a little longer, then I've always just had Adam's computer. Kind of cool to have my very own now. I guess I'll share it Adam from time to time :)
And just a cute picture of Grace snoozing in the car. She puts her blankie behind her head when she sleeps now... how cute is that.

We will remember!

Watch this. Grab some tissues too!

A day that I will always remember is November 18, 1999. My roommate woke me up at 5:30am to tell me to turn on the tv. Bonfire had fallen. Students were trapped. We got up and threw some clothes on and headed to campus to see for ourselves. By time we got there the sun was just coming up. It was so busy. Policemen, firemen, students, and volunteers working feverishly to remove the logs one by one in hopes of finding students that are still alive. Students were surrounded by the stack of logs praying and watching in disbelief.

You see Bonfire was an Texas Aggie tradition since 1909. It started with a big bunch of trash and students getting together for a sort of pep-rally to get fired up about the big game the following day. (Texas A&M v. Texas) Years later it was a 55 foot stack... huge... but amazing.

About 2:30 in the morning on this day 8 years ago, the centerpole (the tallest log) snapped. This sent the stack towering down and killing 12 students and injuring 27 others.

I was a sophmore this year. And my freshman year I went to the community college in my hometown so this was my first year at A&M. So I've never seen a Bonfire before, but I will never forget it.

What a week.

My husband accepted a new job. WHOOP!

My husband quit his job here ... went very well.

I celebrated my birthday 3 nights in a row... yeah for no cooking!

I got lots of fun presents for my bday... a new Nicholas Sparks book (in hardback... I normally wait until its in paperback), a beautiful new coat, a Sonicare toothbrush (which I LOVE!), and a couple fun things from some girlfriends... including some Belly Butter from Burt's Bees... every pregnant woman should try it... its great!

We put our house on the market. We even had a showing yesterday and are suppose to have a couple more this next week.

I've cleaned my house more this week than I did the entire month of July. (If you remember I was pretty sick that month and cleaning wasn't in my vocabulary that month... nor was cooking!). Seriously though my house is so stinkin' clean.

Adam and I are meeting his parents today to drop off Grace. They are keeping her for the week! Well I guess for a few days. We will be going to their house on Wednesday. Until then we will be working on finding a new house and praying our current home sells so we can buy a new home!

So for now I'm just breathing and taking one day at a time. While we are super excited to be moving home, I'm just trying to take it slow and not get overwhelmed. Thanks for the prayers.

We actually ordered a St. Joseph on e-bay that I'm hoping will come very soon. Have you heard the old wives tales about a St. Joseph statue when trying to sell your house? Check it out here... anything is worth a shot :)

It's official... we're moving! Yup you read that right... we are moving.

We are leaving our little town in Okalahoma and heading to the bright lights of Texas! I think I'm still in shock. When Adam and I first moved to Oklahoma 5 years ago, we were just a few months out of college and we never thought we would be here this long. Not that his job wasn't good, we just thought he would do this job for a couple years then move back home to Texas. But that wasn't what God had in store... Adam earned a couple promotions along the way, I was able to stay home with Grace and we really started to like here. However, due to several changes and a growing family we started to think about moving home again. It's really hard to be away from family when you have little ones. We have been so blessed to have found so many wonderful friends here that will truly miss... hopefully they will come visit us.

After several months of searching for the right job and many many interviews later, Adam has accepted a position. We couldn't be more excited!! Our house here in OK goes on the market today. Hopefully it will be sold fast, but the average length of time a house in the market here is 120 days... so it could be a while. I also have no clue where this baby girl in my tummy will be born. Maybe the house will sell this week and we wont have to worry ourselves with that.

Anyway, I've been dying to tell everyone, but had to keep things quiet until it was official. So help us in praying for a smooth transition, move and new start in Texas!!!

Sorry for the lack of posts lately... things have been just so busy. I'll expain more later, but for now here is a picture of my child reverting to being a baby. I pulled out her exersaucer to put in the attic and she HAD to be in it. And you also may notice the pacifier. She has never taken a pacifier except when she was really little... but the last couple weeks she has to have one. So I've had to go out and buy a couple because she was stealing other children's pacificers. What am I going to do when baby #2 is here?? Do all 21 month old children do this?

My Oreo baby

Grace LOVES Oreos. But then again who doesn't. Shoot I don't even like chocolate (which is a totally different post), but I like Oreos. I think the baby in my belly likes them too :)
Anyway, she pulls apart the oreo and licks all the icing out of the middle then proceedes to eat the 2 chocolate cookies. It is just so funny to watch. How did she learn to eat the good part first? Adam and I don't eat oreos that way?
Here is a picture of my oreo girl!

dentist drama

I hate the dentist.

Seriously... I brush twice daily (sometimes more often), I floss almost daily (sometimes I am just too tired to floss... but I floss at least several times a week), I go to the dentist religiously every 6 months and I have ever since I can remember.

Yet I still have TWO cavities! Granted I don't remember the last time I had a cavity, but still I have TWO!

I'm going to blame this on my dad since he has bad teeth, but the dentist said I need to stop eating candy. WHAT! Stop eating candy?? You can't tell a pregnant woman to stop eating her main craving! But I guess I'm on a mission to try to eat less candy.

So if you see me eating candy...especially things that are hard or sticky... make me stop. Now I have a month to think about getting those cavities filled. YUCK!

Oh and just so you know they called my OB and he says its okay to have it done since I will be in my 3rd trimester when I'm having it done.

And since every post is better with a picture... here is my Miss Pris in all her glory picking her nose! Oh joy!

The news is in...

No, not me... we are still having a girl (at least we think so!). My brother and his wife just found out they are having a little boy! My sister-in-law is due just a couple weeks after me and we couldn't be more excited for a little boy! Especially since we have one little girl here and one on the way... we need a boy in the family. :)
Oh and just for those who are curious...
my 2 friends and my aunt that are pregnant are all having girls! So you can see we really needed a little boy.
