SURPRISE!!!

SURPRISE
So it all started with this.... (its kinda hard to see...but it CLEARLY says PREGNANT) haha:)
Ray gave me the option of going to get a pregnancy test or getting icecream... I voted pregnancy test. He thought I WAS preggo; I thought NO WAY! After we saw these results...He said, "Do you wanna go get icecream now?" hahaha!



We were both (well mainly me) shocked at first...but obviously knew it could happen :) Ray has been my rock...He has been excited, happy, encouraging me with Truth, making me laugh, and being there for me since the minute we found out. It has only been about 8 weeks (we think), but we have both been overwhelmed with God's love and grace carrying us. We kept it a secret until a few nights ago.
Since I had kinda gone crazy when I first saw the first positive test...I decided I needed to take another one so that I could have a little calmer reaction :) So I took another one while Ray was at work. It was once again loud and clear with the results... PREGNANT!!! So here are some pictures from when I told him we DEFINITELY were gonna have a baby... :)


I made a nice dinner and several little things sitting
around his plate...



One of his favorite books from when he was a kid...
Where the Wild Things Are...


The Baby Name Book...
Which we already have names that we really like :)
(I love that we agree on most things... or I win!!)


SUGAR BABIES :)


Then he had to read the story aloud at the table...
and he said he needed to hold the book like the teachers
in school holds it so the kids can see the pictures... haha!



I can already tell he is gonna be a GREAT dad...CRAZY, but GREAT!!

So here we go...onto the next step of the journey....
An unexpected gift and the best surprise I have ever had....
We are going to be parents... Sometimes I just have to let the words sink in...
But I know that there is grace upon grace upon grace in the arms of our Savior...
Sooooo.... Lets get the party started... :)






Psalm 139:14-16
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,
your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
