We're Doubling!

I can't even tell you how excited I am that we are expanding our family! Clark and I have been trying for over a year to have kids and the time finally came for us. I haven't talked about this to most people but last year we had a miscarriage around 7.5 weeks but I didn't find out until 11 weeks because I never passed anything. I had surgery to get everything removed and ever since my hormones have been out of whack! I have truly learned patience this year and having to rely on the Lord to soften my heart and just wait for our time.

I found out at 4 weeks that I was pregnant and when Clark and I saw the positive we were SO happy. I just cried and cried of joy. I was surprised we found out so early! I was just hoping that I would be able to keep this baby! I had my first ultrasound appointment at 6 weeks. Clark couldn't go with me because he had a McDonald's class he had to go to. While in the room I was looking on the screen and I swear I saw two sacs but I wasn't sure. I have read and looked at so many pregnancy things that I thought I knew what I saw. My doctor showed me the first heart beat and then he said "and here is the other!" WHAT! We were having TWINS!  I was stunned but not too surprised or scared because I have secretly always wanted twins! I left the appointment and went to purchase two white onsies to surprise Clark and the family. Clark over the recent weeks had told me he just knew we were having twins. So when he called and asked how my appointment went I just said no twins and said I'll see him when he got home. Clark and his family opened the gift with the two onsies and everyone about fell over! It was GREAT! My mom didn't even believe that we were expecting two!

I was pretty nauseous week 7 & 8 but I have felt better since and have been able to eat frequently and keep things down! I have been pretty lucky! Hopefully it stays that way! I've had 3 ultrasound appointments at 6, 8, and 10 weeks. Our next appointment at 13 weeks is on Clark's birthday Nov. 10th so hopefully we can hear the heartbeats then. Today the little twins were moving and kicking and waving! It was way cute! The twins will be fraternal and we are hoping for one boy and girl but we will be happy with what ever we get!

I hope everything will go fine! We will find out beginning of December what the sexes are. Please keep us in your prayers :) WE ARE SO HAPPY AND GRATEFUL!!!!

Birthday Fun!

This weekend Kirk came to visit! It was also his 20th birthday so we went out to eat and then went bowling! Kirk beat all of us of course!

Mike and Kristin are here to stay!

Clark and Kirk!


We came home from church on Sunday to find all these coconuts on the ground. We chopped them open to partake of the yummy milk...well I didn't think it was that good...oh well.

Del Ray and Deerfield Beach

This past weekend the Gray and Dyer family headed to Del Ray Beach for dinner. Later we took a walk to the beach! There were beach lounge chairs to sit on and the breeze was amazing. Vicki helped her nieces find some seashells on the beach and I of course pulled out my camera!


Layla, Melanie and Chad!

The next day we headed to Deerfield beach to catch some rays and play in the ocean. I had never been to that beach before but I loved it! We spent time collecting shells with our cousins and Clark and his uncle went snorkeling.

Me and Clark!

Cute Layla!

Hannah and her shells.

Earlier that day Vicki and I went to a Relief Society activity for our church. We helped make 500 hygiene kits for an abused women's shelter.

I spent some time in my hometown of Roswell, Ga last week and hung out with my besties for a night! I love that they all still live in Roswell...well minus me!

We went to dinner at Provinos and caught up on some good ole' times. I hadn't seen my friend Jessica since my wedding 4 years ago! She still looks the same and is beautiful!

The last time I saw Lizanne was 2 years ago when Clark and I were in Paris for a month and she was living in Spain for school. She flew to Paris to see us and we had such a great time!

It has been over a year since I have seen Maggie! I saw her last when I was back in Roswell some time ago...I can't even remember!

All in all we had a great time and I hope to see them sooner than later!

Maggie, Lizanne, Me and Jessica

Seriously girls my battery is running out!

Maggie and her famous tongue pose. Lizanne looks a little weirded out.

Okay almost...seriously if I don't get a good picture I'll be super mad guys.

Yay! I love you girls!

Fun Festivities with the Grays

This is long over do but I finally plugged in my camera to my computer! Kristin and Mike came into town for 2 weeks back in September to hang out before they officially move here at the end of October! While they were here we went to South Beach right after dinner. It was so peaceful and there was a great breeze!

We also surprised my brother in law Chad for his 31st birthday and had a Fiesta Party! He had no clue and Melanie, his wife, did a great job planning it!

Chad trying to hit the pinata!

Clark with the broken remnants.

Also, later that week, we had a small McDonald's birthday party for some regulars that always come in for lunch! It was great spending time with them!

The cake was AMAZING! YUM!
