A Beautiful Flower Blooms Today!

My brother and sister-in-law are in the hospital awaiting their little girl Daisy!!

Jessica's water broke this morning! She hasn't gone into labor yet and is still dilated 2.5cm and is 80% effaced (which hasn't changed from the other day). So I am waiting on a little more progress before I head on to the hospital!

I cannot believe my baby brother is going to be a daddy and that I'm going to be an Aunt!!!!!Daniel and Jess in Cades Cove in the National Park taken in October I believe.
Jess and Daisy (who is looking an awful lot like a bowling ball) on Dec. 8!
This is Daniel and Jess and their dog Tinkerbell on Dec.13 in the 9.5 inches of snow they got!

Thankfully I am able to get down our driveway after the ice storm we had last night...
The power lines covered in ice. Thank goodness we didn't lose power!
The ice was and still is beautiful, I'd never seen anything like it in my life!

Pictures of Daisy to come as soon as she has arrived!!!!!

I'm Still Alive!!

Sorry I've been MIA for so long. I've started a new job, been busy with Christmas things and just plain tired most of the time because I've been running like crazy so much.

I have good news though......we were finally able to get our image CD from the photographers!!!! Slowly but surely I have been working on organizing and re-sizing all 963 images! It is taking longer than I expected though but stay tuned because I hope to be able to have recap posts ready for the new year!!

I also thought I'd share with you our Christmas decorations! Everything that we have I had bought before we were married when I saw things here and there on sale. I am sooo glad I did that or we wouldn't have squat for decorations! We are so excited to celebrate our first Christmas as a married couple and start our own traditions!

This little ceramic tree was made by my grandma.
The decorations in the guest bathroom.
Pom-pom garlands on all the doors in the hallway.
The living room decorations.
Some decorations in the kitchen.
