This is just for you Aunt Margaret! Can you believe it?
So why is it "Suprise Sunday"? We're pregnant. Surprise!!
I had my suspicions about being pregnant and so did Mom, Dad, and Dave after I nearly fell asleep in my steak at Longhorn Sunday. Still, I didn’t want to test since it was so early and I didn't want to be disappointed, but Dad offered to buy one of those expensive early detection kits if I would just take it. Mom and I sneaked into Wal-mart and purchased the kit in the pharmacy so we wouldn’t see anyone we knew at the checkout. Good thing too since Cindy and Mandy met us at the door on the way out!
I headed upstairs followed by Dave (so he would be the very first to know) and lo and behold there was a very faint second line on the test that didn’t even take the full three minutes to show up. I ran downstairs to tell Mom who in turn told Dad who in turn tried to contain his excitement.
So we’ve had this great plan for the entire 2 months we’ve been trying to conceive: let’s not tell people until I’m showing and let’s tell our parent’s in person with some cute little grandma/grandpa items. That all went out the window when the little pink line showed up. Gotta tell the world! That is if my dad doesn’t get to it first. :)

Emily and Chris just adopted a Shi-Tzu puppy together. Isn’t he the cutest? Jared affectionately refers to him as a Crap-Tzu. :)
Jared, Bonita, and Emily
The next generation!
Bonita still has Jared's high chair. I remember this chair and have a picture of it somewhere!
Good food and good friends
This was the most intense game of Guestures I have ever played in my life (except for that one time Brooke displaced her knee after acting out “tug-of-war” and had to go to the hospital). The girls were way behind and it order to win by one point, we had to get 16 points on the last round. That meant choosing the hardest card whether I was confident or not! “Shelf” and “coat” went off without a hitch, but I wasn’t feeling too confident about the last two. However…Jess nailed “ulcer” and Emily nailed “caress” to give us the victory by one point. You should have heard the cheer that went up from us girls after the caress card was pulled from its slot.

My second cake! I was dying to use this little bear pan and Katy suggested I be "Beary" thankful for something as a thematic excuse to use it. :p
Xie-xie Katy and Gilbert for the great gifts and delicious meal!

Can't wait for PF Chang's to open! Dave will have nothing to do with it so I'll have to sneak off without him. ;)
Gondola rides! They are almost as expensive as a real ride in Venice. Probably because they use real impoted Italian gondolas. Move over Las Vegas!

That’s a gross exaggeration, but I’m still proud of my first attempt at cake decorating.
Here’s the rest of the class toiling away. Our instructor has been teaching cake decorating for over 22 years!

An actual fall season with changing leaves and everything!
Snow! Sure it’s not much, but I’ll take it.
Real pizza. I don’t know if I can ever eat Domino’s again!
All the way hot dogs.
Other highlights…Saying “auwl” the way, “cauffe,” “auwful,” and “taulk” and hearing my 27 year-old 6’2” beast of a husband being referred to as “Young David” and being ripped on for growing facial hair.
