Tickled pink...or maybe blue!

Alan and I joyfully announced our pregnancy to our families on Christmas Day and have begun to share the exciting news! We had been praying about starting a family for a while and were trusting in God's perfect timing. Baby M is due this summer and we could not be more thankful. When we found out ourselves on November 15th we were so excited, humbled, anxious, all at the same time. We are thrilled about being parents and especially grateful for wonderful parents ourselves who have been role-models to us throughout our lives. God is so good!

Ringing in 2014!

Alan and I had a wonderful time ringing in the New Year with sweet friends! J+P hosted a great party as usual and we had some good laughs over fun games as we waited for the ball to drop. So excited to see what this year has in store... 2014 is going to be a good one!
