Our Beautiful Baby Girl

She's so beautiful and healthy, just like her big sister!!
We got to see her for the first time today, it was amazing. She was moving around like crazy, but the technician was able to get a few great shots...

"Hi Everybody!"

"I'm a Girl!!!"
(The tech puts a "?" on them because she says, you can never be too sure...)

Cute Little Baby Feet

Due Date's been bumped up to 12/14. We are so excited and can't wait to meet our little girl in person! Alyssa's thrilled to have a baby sister on the way!! Thanks to everyone for the prayers and support. We couldn't be happier and feel very blessed!

Mom Q's 50th Birthday Camp-out

The Birthday Girl had no idea what was in store for her on her 50th Birthday. We tried to keep the element of surprise up by inviting all of her family and friends to our camp-out without her knowing. All she knew was we were camping by the lake. It was so awesome to see the surprise on her face when she returned from a tour around the lake, to see all the decorations and friends and family arriving.
