So go start placing your guesses!! :) Anyway...hope you like the new look...still not sure about this font...I'm thinking it might be hard to read...but I'm going to try it for a few days....let me know what you all think :) Okay...it's late and I need to go to bed :) Hope you all have a great Thursday!

Why is that you ask? I'll get to that in a second...but first of all...who ever says Minnesota nice has never been to southern Georgia...oh my goodness those people are nice. I've never been treated so good at a restaurant or anywhere for that matter. They were so helpful and always saying "yes ma'm". As you can guess Jon and I were in Georgia this past week...well from Wednesday to Sunday...and even though it hasn't been a bad winter in Minnesota it was so nice getting off the plane to 75 degrees and sunny and palm trees! :) And why Georgia you ask...why is Georgia on my mind?!?! Well...it's because my baby is down there...growing in his or her birthmom's tummy! What?! Did you read that right?! Yes you did!!!!! Can you even begin to believe it??!!???!!?? I know that I sure couldn't when Heather first got ahold of us via e-mail. Here we were grieving the loss of Oliver...and then we get this e-mail from a lady in Georgia wondering if we would like to adopt her baby (and by the way...we do know if this baby is a boy or a girl...but we are choosing to keep it a secret from all of you blog readers....just for fun!! So...when I get a poll going on the side of the blog you'll have to start placing your bets!). We really didn't even have to think about it...of course we would love to! So we made plans to travel down to meet her. Let me just tell you...we had a blast! We all hit it off right away and we even were able to go to a doctors appointment and feel the baby move and hear the heartbeat...it was so cool...thank you again Heather for that! It meant the world to us to be able to do that! Anyway...we spent a lot of time hanging out with Heather and her family, her son, her friends, and even with the birthdad. It was a great time getting to know everyone and again...thank you all for making us feel so welcome :) We cannot wait to go back in April to spend time with them again and to meet our new baby :) I'll have more details on all of that later when the time gets closer and we know more of the details of when the baby will be born (it's going to be a c-section so we are lucky that it can be scheduled so we can be there when he/she is born!!) :) Okay...I feel like if I keep writing I'm just going to start babbling because I am so tired...but I am so excited about our news that I just wanted to share it with you all before I go to bed tonight :) And again...thank you Heather...we loved meeting you and getting to know you...thanks for hanging out with us...and thank you Nick...we loved meeting you too and spending time with you as well. You are giving us an awesome gift and we are so grateful. Always and forever! We can't wait to see y'all again in April!!!
Here we are in Savannah with Heather (and baby of course!)...we love Georgia!!!
