And the winner is...

Reid Joseph. That's right...after much debate we have officially decided on a name for Baby K :) I am so glad we can finally call him by his name. I have really liked the name Reid for a long time and Bill picked out Joseph because we both had a grandfather named Joseph. So we are continuing the trend of an individual/unique first name and then a family tie for the middle name. Nolan is now calling his little brother "Baby Reid" when he kisses my tummy at night and tells him goodnight and that he loves him...just precious to this mommy's ears :)

Pink or Blue?

I think blue is twice as nice :) Nolan has been convinced for the last month or so that he is going to have a little "brofer." So much relief when we found out he was getting his wish :) More importantly, Baby Boy is doing great and everything looked fabulous on his ultrasound today. We are absolutely thrilled to be adding another little man to our family! Now the great name debate begins....all input is welcome because we can't agree on boy names at all! And...Nolan wants to name the baby, "Nolan Del Brofer"...we've got some work to do!

Pretty soon my wonderful hubby and I will be celebrating our 5 year anniversary. WOW...I can't even believe that we have been married for that long. I feel like it was just yesterday that it was our beautiful wedding day. I am so blessed to have such a fabulous hubby and a beautiful family. We had been trying to decide how to celebrate this blessed anniversary for quite awhile. We tossed around a couple of ideas, but one night he surprised me that he had booked a trip to the Bahamas for us. I have always wanted to stay at the Atlantis resort so that is where we decided to stay. Oh, my, gosh!! If you have ever the opportunity to go there, you HAVE to Go. It is absolutely beautiful and my pictures definitely do not do it justice. We had such a great time and I even convinced him to get on some of the water slides with me. He wouldn't do the wild and crazy ones, but it was a milestone to say the least. I can't wait until Nolan is big enough for us to take him there, too. It is such a wonderful family vacation spot!

Orange and White Game

So it's time once again for the Orange and White Game. This used to not be such a big deal when we lived in TN, but now that we are out of state we miss out on all of the TN football frenzy. Bill was super excited (big surprise..we all know his love of TN football) to see the new coaches (me, too actually) so we drove A LOT to see this spring game. First, on Friday we drove to my parents house in E-Town and spent the night. Then we got up early and met our good friends in Bristol. We made the drive to Knoxville and introduced our friends to the fine dining of Louie's Restaurant....YUMMY!! I really miss that place. Then we headed to campus, got a great parking spot, headed over to Fan Day for a little bit, and then we met up with some of our dear college friends...love and miss you all :(, went to see the Vol Walk, had a yummy stadium dog, and had a great time at the scrimmage game. Finally, we headed back to E-Town for one more night and returned home on Sunday....whew!! A whole lot of driving, but it was definitely worth it. We had an awesome time with great people and now we are looking forward to a fabulous football season. As always...GO VOLS!

Happy Easter!

What a very special day Easter is around our house. We get the honor of celebrating our risen savior while spending the day with our family. Nolan had a blast, of course. After church he got lots and lots of goodies from the family and went on his very first egg hunt with his cousin, Kay Kay. As you can see the fountain at Mamaw and Papaw's house was the most popular place to put the eggs...even after they had been found somewhere else :)

Lions, Tigers, and Roo Bear..Oh, my!

On Good Friday we decided to take a family trip to the Riverbanks Zoo and Gardens in Columbia, SC. Everyone went, except for my mom..she was stuck at home sick with bronchitis...sorry Nana :( This was Nolan's first trip to the zoo and he absolutely loved it!! He smiled and laughed at the animals, but his favorites were most definitely the giraffes, penguins, and elephants. Then there were his other favorite things...the train ride, the carousel, and of course the ice cream! All in all he had a fantastic day with his family and we can't wait to go back to the zoo again!!

Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow

Now anyone who really knows me is very aware of the fact that I am not a big fan of snow....put me in a warm tropical climate and I am in euphoria. Today, however, was very special because it was the first time that Nolan got to enjoy snow and it was absolutely priceless! Thank goodness he is finally feeling better because we had a blast and from the moment we said "Nolan, look at the snow" he started saying "snow..outside..snow". We had to enjoy it very quickly though because it was gone not long after it arrived....ahhh, my kind of snow after all!!

NONO's snow house!!
