She Came Home!!!

Today I had the most wonderful surprise. My sister walked through my front door. From Phoenix!!! It took me about an hour (of staring at her and hugging her) to realize it was all real!!  For those of you who don't know, she's my been best friend since birth. My other half.  An extra limb, if you will.

What better way to celebrate this homecoming than a picnic on the lake! Tonight was one of those nights that I will cherish. I got to be with my family tonight. My delightfully silly, crazy, amazing family.

 
                                                              ha.  this is so us.

If you don't know already... My brother is expecting his first baby sometime in October.  It has been so neat to start preparing for her arrival (yes I said HER, it's time to buy stock in BabyGap, folks!).  I was fortunate enough to join Jen for an ultrasound (Nick couldn't go last minute) yesterday and I cried three times in that dark room.  Every time I looked at that monitor of a perfect baby all I could think was: "God is so COOL!"

We are doing our best to monitor every change this pregnancy brings.  Here are some of the latest developments...
