It is just a good day all around! We got about 5 inches of snow last night and this morning so everything is beautiful for sure! The kids are getting their school work done now so they can go play outside...I might even get outside with them for a bit...we'll see:-)

We also found out that high speed internet is now available at our house! We've been dealing with dial up (and a slow dial up at that!) connection for the last 2 years, but we'll be getting a DSL connection this Thursday!!! This is right up there with the dishwasher, let me tell you! It's such a simple thing, and it is a great reminder that God is interested in the little things in our lives, and as a loving Father, He delights in doing special things for His children! What a blessing something so simple is!

And speaking of little things...(well...we'll see how little!!!) I went to the doctor's today for my weekly appointment. He set the induction date for this Thursday, Jan 18! Yet another 5 days shaved off the waiting time! And I must say he did this on his own...I was not one to argue, mind you, but it was Dr. Ryan's idea to induce this Thursday since I'll practically be 39 weeks anyways! My friend, Marsel, reminded me today of what a miracle this little baby is...what a precious thought! I cannot wait to hold our little baby and have her snuggle down in my neck...and to realize that I will be holding her so soon is even better! God is so good!

I joked with some friends Sunday about this being my last Sunday to wear a maternity dress...I turned out to be right! And it's another simple thing, but by having her on the 18th, I'll be up and around for my birthday...something little, but it will be nice to have more time between special days...Yippeee Skippeeee!!!

Awesome! I am so excited for you! I will be thinking of you and praying for you on Thursday! I know you are in good hands with Dr. Ryan! I am hoping to maybe be able to see you guys when we come for heart conference, but I don't want to be any kind of burden so you'll just have to let me know... But, I'd love to see that little baby girl! I bet Hannah is so excited! Love you and miss you!

Well, today's the day (1/17) to shave your legs, paint your toenails, and check obsessively to make sure that you remembered to put the camera in the bag! Love and best wishes to you -- we will be praying for you throughout the day tomorrow -- does Brent know how to post on the blog so that he can put a quick note on with the pertinent information? We don't want to wait until you get home from the hospital! :-) (On a side note, I keep picturing you going to Edward Hospital even though I know that's not the case! My brain doesn't like change!)
