Back from the dead!!!

Seriously, that is about how I feel now. It seems like forever that we have gone without an internet connection at home. So much to catch up on. I have over 2,000 emails (posts) to read from one of my Yahoo stitching groups...don't know if I will ever be able to do it.

We are settled in the house. Everything is unpacked and pictures hung...really feels like "home". Or at least as homey as it will feel. Can I just say what a pain it is to hang pictures here? Mainly because the walls are concrete and you have to use special concrete nails that really make a mess of the wall if you aren't careful. Even if you are careful, sometimes you still end up with a big chunk of the concrete missing. Doesn't help that we have about 30 pictures hanging on our "family & friends" wall in the dining room.

I hope to take some pictures this week of the house and will post them.

Well, for the OTHER news....we're having a baby!!!! Shhhh...don't tell our families. We want to wait to tell them for a few more weeks. (Just incase). But so far, the only people to know are Staci, Katie & Jackie. I went to the doctor today and he said I am measuring about 7 weeks. Which is accurate, because I will be 7 weeks tomorrow. My initial due date was January 11, 2007...but the doctor today put it at January 14, 2007. I think that they just get an "approximate" range and guess from there. Everything that I have read and calculated would put me at January 11. Who knows.

So, now I have all kinds of happy baby thoughts in my head...last night I laid awake in bed (common occurance most nights now) thinking of how I will design the baby book. And I am trying to decide on decorating themes...all along I have thought of soft, muted pastels with a Beatrix Potter "Peter Rabbit" I am thinking bright, vivid, almost jewel toned colors in an "Under the Sea" theme....and now I just had a "flash" of a thought....Bumblebees! I need to stay pretty neutral since we don't want to know the sex of the baby.

We had a housewarming party about 2 weeks ago and it was very nice. Especially since everyone was pretty much out of here by 7PM. One of our guests brought us this amazing flower arrangement that she made from the flowers in her YARD!!! Amazing! They remind me of my wedding boquet.

I promise that I will update my stitching pictures this week...lots of finishes to show!
