Well, here we are - making our debut into the world of blogging. :) We're happy to be here. We want to try our best to keep this up-to-date and share about the goings-on (is that how you say it?) of our lives. Nick is a part time youth pastor at a church here in Gravette, AR where we live and is also working part time for Simmons Foods as a Corporate Chaplain - his office is located in Decatur, AR. He is in charge of 9 locations and travels to them off and on throughout the week/month. He is loving this new opportunity and enjoys learning more and more everyday. Valerie also works at Simmons Foods as a Fixed Assets Accountant in Siloam Springs, AR. We are expecting our first child - a little boy - in (hopefully) the next 2 weeks or so!! His due date is November 1 (2 weeks from tomorrow). We have a dog named Maggie Pearl. She is Nick's huntin dog (you have to say huntin' without the "g" or else your not a real hunter - or at least that's what I've picked up). :) She is a yellow lab and loves to dig and chew - but she's just so stinkin cute!
We can't wait to meet the newest member of our family in the next few weeks and learn what life is all about as parents. We are thrilled, anxious, excited, terrified, and so so blessed.
Here's a picture of our little family - new arrival pictures to come when the new arrival comes!! These are pictures from the end of July 2010 - our trip to Colorado. And baby boy was about 26ish weeks in the belly bump picture and the ultrasound. :) He's much bigger now that he's 38 weeks!
