Jen, me, and Meredith in Nashville

Baby Raines attended her first Bowl Game (UK vs. Florida State) at the Music City Bowl in Nashville. We won (barely) for the 2nd year in a row....way to go CATS!

Afterwards, we went to Buffalo Billiards. Black was a popular color for New Year's Eve....

We stayed at Joe & Meredith Willialms' house in Hendersonville. They were great hosts!

Merry's a girl

Well, surprising our parents with the news was just as fun as I had hoped. We wrapped little pink gifts to share our news. When they opened the box, it was stuffed with pink shredded tissue paper, a pink "grandma's brag book" photo album, little pink mints that say "it's a girl," and copies of the ultrasound pictures. It took both of our parents a little while to figure out what was going on...they were SO surprised!

We didn't get to make a big announcement this time when we found out we were pregnant, so we wanted to do something special to announce the sex of the baby.

Andy is going to be out numbered.....I hope he likes PINK!

It's a GIRL!!!!!!!

We found out today we're having a GIRL!!! I can't express how excited I am to know whether it's a boy or a more referring to Baby Raines as "t." The baby is now officially a "she" and we have the ultrasound pictures to prove it!
We were kind of sneaky about it...we wanted to surprise our family with the news on Christmas morning, so we told our friends and family we weren't finding out the sex of the baby until Jan 2nd.

Little do they know, we found out TODAY we're having a GIRL! Andy and I are so excited to share the news with our family. We're going to buy some cute little pink gifts and wrap them up for our parents to open on Christmas's finally starting to feel more real...I'm starting to believe that we really ARE going to have a baby. I'm half way through...

Bunco Girls

Our Bunco group got together for a Christmas party. Everybody except Brennan and Amy Silvert made it. We have THREE pregnant girls in the group...Rose Helwig, Libby Johnson, and ME (front row)!

This is such a great group of girls...I look forward to getting together with them every month.

more dreams...

Last night, I spent most of my dreams on the beach. I also remember dreaming that I was going to drive one of those horse taxis. But, of course, when it was my turn, the horse pooped twice! And I didn't have shoes on because I had been on the beach. yuck!

Dreaming Away...

I've been dreaming every night. Here's what I dreamed about last night:

Me, Andy, Nick & Jen Thompson and some others were flying to Germany for 5 days. Then, we realized the flight left in an hour (from Nashville) -- and we were in Owensboro! So, we started calling people to see if we could charger a plane or find a friend who cold fly us to NY, where we would catch up with our flight. In my dream, I was dreaming that Superman would save us and fly us where we needed to go....interesting.

I also had a dream that Candi Brake called me, but didn't tell me who she was. I finally guessed it was her.
