her name

In case you were wondering...

her name will be Evangeline Christine. It seemed like a long process trying to figure out a name. But after calling her Evangeline for a few weeks now I think it's safe to finally put it on here. She has my middle name, and technically, my first as well. We liked that this name had angel in it but didn't sound like angel. Evangeline means good news and Christine means follower of Christ. It is our hearts desire to see all our children come to know the Lord and the work that Jesus did on the cross for us.

The waiting game continues as we anticipate her arrival. You can't rush perfection, but we are hoping for sooner than later!

An update and old pics

I'm in shock right now that I am even typing this. Without internet at home it has been nearly impossible to update. We are looking in to getting internet at home once the baby comes, so hopefully the posts will not be few and far between. Besides, I will need some kind of contact with the outside world.

We have been busy with lots of random stuff: work, dinners, church, yard work, organizing the nursery, and re-screening our windows. It will be nice when the baby gets here because I will actually just get some time to sit. Ok, well maybe not sit, but at least no obligations to go anywhere or do anything for at least a week while AJ is home. I actually look at this like taking a vacation.

And since I'm so far behind, here are pictures from 3 weeks ago when we went to the zoo.

He loves his daddy SSOOO much.

This is my brother and his daughter. They are so much fun!

This is the best we could get of them looking at the camera and smiling. NOTICE: neither of them are looking at the camera or smiling. What can I say? They are 1 and 2 years old.
