Ahhhhh...

So how about that announcement? Did I have you fooled? I was hoping that you would all be thinking that the big surprise was a work related project so that I wouldn't give it away! I had to post it Sunday night though because people from market were starting to talk and I didn't want anyone else to tell before I had my chance. :)

Thank you all so much for the sweet comments and emails! I read every single one at least twice! A lot of you asked how I have been feeling....well the first trimester was full of sick and tired, but pretending to feel great and in the weeks since the sick has worn off the tired has stuck around. I feel sort of like I'm on cough medicine all the time. I'm tired but happy! I'm not sure that it has completely become real for me yet but in the moments that it does feel real I get so excited!

Another big question was "What did the kids think?" Oh my! These kids were so funny! I still don't know how I managed to hide the bump here at home, but they totally didn't get it! Molly said "How long has this been going on?!" and when I said "Since June" she acted a little mad for a minute but then quickly changed her mind and said "Oh Mama! Now I'm glad you didn't tell us, cause now I don't have to wait so long!" They were so excited! Last Tuesday was when they found out. We came home from the doctors office and told them and then took them out to eat (a BIG treat around here) and then to the mall for them to buy something for the baby. For two or three days they would say things like "OH! That's why you were so tired" or "OH! That's why you wouldn't ride the roller coasters!" You know it really is surprising how unobservant kids are about some things! I mean I couldn't have hid a bag of chocolate for more than a day, but a baby, oh your good for a few months!

I have been a lazy-bum today after such a busy week with market and all, but I plan to get on the ball tomorrow and post all of those market pictures I promised. Now I need to get up, straighten up my house, and get these kids fed and dressed for church. It looks like we will be having chicken noodle soup with goldfish crackers tonight! Gotta love quick dinner nights! xo, Sam
