a long while.

9 years ago, while sitting on the boat dock, overlooking lake muncie at camp lutherhaven, james asked me to be official. later we went on our first (and my first ever) date.

it was at exactly 5:05 pm. right before dinner that he asked.

how do i know the time exactly? i wrote all about it in my journal.

then ended with "we better stay together a long while." :)

our first picture together...

nursery progress.

added some pictures to the nursery page on the bean link.

we are getting closer! baby stuff is starting to pop up around the house.

sad day for james? when i had to relocate the bar cabinet to make some room for baby stuff. :)

33 weeks tomorrow!

another niece!

congrats to dav and whit on the birth of their little girl last night!

enola lynn.
5 pounds 14 ounces.
20 inches.
10:36 pm.

another thumbsucker. what a cutie! i so wish we could be there. i had to wait a few months to meet levi too. not fun!

it'll be easy to remember the time she was born. emma was born at 11:36 and i was born at 1:36. maybe bean will come at 12:36.

i told bean last night "now you better really be a girl!" whit and i have 'american girl' tea party wishes. :)
