Christmas Recap and a Big Gift

Catching up...We celebrated Christmas with my side of the fam on Christmas Eve Eve before heading North to the Osborn's. We had a delicious dinner and opened presents. 

Lane and his Great grandaddy Pop, sharing a snack

 a lot of toting around by Sam
Then we shared our biggest (or smallest, however you look at it) gift...
Lane shared the news...

What?! Really?!

Yes, we are expecting a baby in July!(July 27th to be exact) I am almost 11 weeks and am feeling great. We were and weren't surprised. We were hoping to have kiddos close in age, but when it really happens, it always is a bit surprising! They will be 18 months apart, so fun (I think, other moms out there with this scenario, so fun right?!) 

The next morning we headed to Moulton...
playing with Uncle M and Aunt B, he loved the guitar

his favorite person, Grandaddy Jim, two peas in a pod

he was all about cookies for Santa

giving Aunt B some lovin'



Santa came (aka Grandmomma and Grandaddy!!)

after church, men shot

with his favorites! (who also kept him while we were on vacation, thank you!!)

family shot, notice my new vest off of my wish list... thanks mom and dad!
We finished the Christmas festivities with dinner with the Lane family.
cousins Annie and Sarah

with Mamaw and Papaw Lane

Whew...picture overload! For those still reading, thanks for hanging in there.

Congrats Rayne - what exciting news! Loved how you shared it with your family. Whenever we finally do decide to get in the business of making babies, I hope we are blessed with closeness in age as well - I think it would be a blast.
