Third Trimester

It's been several months since I posted, but it's Christmas break, so I'm taking some time. I'm in my 27th week of pregnancy, and I'm happy to say that this may be the most uneventful pregnancy ever (knock on wood). Sorry, no pictures. #1) I'm not really a picture taker. #2) I don't really feel like documenting my bigness. However, I've only gained 5 lbs.

Post-graduate school life hasn't been boring. We worked all summer to buy a house and finally succeeded. I've been teaching in Paris, and it's an interesting experience . I have some really good kids, but it's taking me longer than I'd like to get used to living in a town of 26,000 people. One of the upsides is that we have a really great church family here, too.

Brian is substitute teaching and trying to find full-time work, and little Joseph is scheduled to make his appearance in about 3 months. Other than that, life is normal.

If I don't get to tell you personally, have a Merry Christmas!

May 2010

This picture is more about Brian's crazy hair than my graduation:)

Erin Lycett and Starbucks...good times.
Aunt Sandra, Josh, Jennifer and Kaleigh, Brian and me at El Bronco's after graduation.
Oh, Flint, I miss you already.

That's right. The Master of Music was THE very last to be announced.

Amy and I were very proud in our pink and orange...a designer's nightmare color combo.

Amy was chosen to speak at our hooding ceremony.
My dear friends Lea, Brandon, Eleanor and Philip. We got ice cream from Bruster's the night before we left. Guess Eleanor wasn't happy with the flavor she got.

He's got a good "cheese" face.
Oh, little Eleanor. You kept me distracted many a church service.

Hey guys!

I know it's been along time since we updated here, but as most of you know we're going through some struggles right now, so please excuse us.

Jeanette's music studio is really starting to take off. She's decided to accept beginning piano students along with voice, and she e-mailed local music teachers her info a few days ago. The phone hasn't stopped ringing since. Praise the Lord!

Still no job for me though, but I haven't stopped looking. Also, the holiday season's coming up fast, and companies will be hiring extra help in the next few weeks, so there's always hope. In the meantime, I start school on the 29th, so I'm getting ready for that.

Now you know I can't put up a post without mentioning our pets. (Yes, I know, I'm a big softee) The boys are fine as always. We had a bit of a fly problem awhile back, so they've managed to stay entertained. And I used a picture of them to create a LOL on Check it out. As for Moe, I think we've finally nailed down his mixed breed. We think he's an Australian Kelpie/Shepherd mix. He's got the coloring and size of the Kelpie, with the hair and look of the Shepherd. We're not sure which one his personality takes after more, because they're so similar. Anyway, I've been asked a few times how big he's gotten, so I figured I'd add a few pics to help answer. Enjoy!

2nd Wedding Anniversary

This year our destination was Atlanta, GA.

Our room at the Doubletree was amazing!

Greeted with the standard chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. Crazy good;-P

One of our balconies, and yes, that's a flat screen in front of our king-sized bed.

The view from one of our balconies. The bar and lobby are below.

The second balcony.

SECOND flat screen...same suite.

Wolfgang Puck coffee maker with individual pods. Wish I had one at home. I broke the my own coffee maker's carafe, so now I have a multi-step process to get the same coffee out of the same machine.

Nuff said. We thought it was an adults-only place, but were we wrong. Not really impressed with Dave and Buster's.

The art museum was a great adventure. Some pieces of art were on loan from the Louvre.

Crazy bike.

Something my Aunt Ginny might make.

Now, for the next few pictures, look very carefully. Is it 2-D, 3-D? What's the deal? Have fun.

We got the opportunity to see the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra featuring Chris Botti at the Memorial Arts Building.

Night at the Museum II, the IMAX EXPERIENCE. Bottom line-the "experience" is not worth it. Save your money.

We had a shorter stay this year, but it was still nice to get away. Next year, we'll be in the middle of a move, so we really tried to enjoy this anniversary. Our third could be a night out at McDonald's.
