Exciting News

I can finally share my exciting news!

Kennedy gets to join Remi in being a "big sister"! Yep....another little bundle of joy! Vanessa is 8 weeks. Predicted due date March 4th. Oh, my...I need to step up my scrapbooking!

We learned about this news 2 weeks ago. The kids were over one night for dinner and Vanessa asked Kennedy to tell us her "surprise". She said "I'm going to be a big sister!" I have wanted to tell the news but it wasn't my news to tell. It's been hard to be quiet! It's not a secret anymore! Vanessa went to the doctor today.

Vanessa had the girls hold the sonogram pics. This is how she "announced" her news on Facebook.

Before the doctor visit Vanessa and I took the girls to a spring-fed lake (Burgers Lake) not far from where the appointment would be. We went back to the lake after the appointment and Daddy joined us. I took a few pics but didn't get many since the girls wanted me to play with them in the water.

It really is a great place to take the family. Here Vanessa is playing with Remi.

Kennedy wasn't the least bit afraid of going deeper! When we got back from the doctor's appointment we took the girls to the side of the lake where the kids slide and diving board were located. Both girls jumped and slid NUMEROUS times! I am one tired gal because they both wanted me to catch them! It was a lot of fun to see them enjoying themselves so much!

On the way home there were some spotty showers. I saw these clouds and couldn't resist taking a pic. I am surprised at how well it turned out since I basically pointed and shot!

Have a good one!


  1. Congratulations to your family! How exciting! A new grandbaby on the way, yep, you best get busy scrapbooking . Ha. Ha. It has been years since I've been to Burger's Lake but I remember it as a fun place. Love the photo of the girls' holding the sonogram pics and the swimming photos and the sky one is great!

  2. Congratulations! What lovely news. You must all be so excited, especially the little girls!

    Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog - and it was a pleasure to follow you up on WOYWW! Only a few more to do, and I'll have completed the Whole List - I think that's a first for me lol!

    So glad you like my new inks. I cut some butterflies on my Cougar cutting machine this afternoon and am keen to get them sprayed too - and create some more backgrounds into the bargain!
