WOW! I doubt anyone actually checks this anymore, but just in case, I'M BACK!

I had wonderful holidays home with my family! Attached is a picture that descibes the week quite well... We were spoiled as usual by both of our families, and even by our "adopted" family (Laura Grace's)! They were all so good to us!

I feel like I haven't sat down since we got off the plane New Years Eve here in North Carolina.

Partly, that is because we found out shortly before Christmas that we are expecting our first baby in August!!! I have been sick very little, thankfully, but I have lost ALL energy I once had!

We are very excited and nervous at the same time. Oddly enough, I am not nervous at all about taking care of a baby--I feel like I am prepared for that part (prepared as one can be), but pregnancy is all new for me of course and has already had its challenges. I am thirteen weeks, so I am certainly not looking "pregnant" yet, but I am feeling chubby and my clothes are getting a tad too fitted for my taste! An ugly place to be. At the same time, this is the most wonderful time of my life, I know, and the challenges will be far outweighed by the joy with which we will soon be blessed.

My nephew celebrated his first birthday yesterday, and I hate not being home for the milestones in the lives of the little people who are SO important to me (Stephen, Chae, and Preston)! He is SO precious and has been such a blessing to our family--a perfect little guy.

Josh's varsity basketball team made it to state!! This team has grown so much, and he is so proud of his girls...and I am so proud of him! I will meet him in Raleigh tomorrow night and stay the night and hopefully watch them play Saturday (if they make it to the final four). Go Knights!

Well, I will TRY to be more faithful. Don't give up on me yet--this blogging thing is about to become a whole new world with Baby Golden!
