I don't have a ton of Christmas pics to share this year, because 1. I didn't worry with my camera a whole lot and 2. We had a very low key Christmas-which I highly enjoyed! We attended several little family and friend get togethers and got to hang out with some of our favorite little people. We went to see a movie on Christmas Eve and had dinner at McEwen's, where we had our first date 5 years ago. We ate a lot of good meals, had some really good rest, and got a lot of baby planning done and underway. *Elvis did give us a scare on Christmas day and decided to have a little joy run in my parent's neighborhood right before night time. Thanks to my keen tracking skills :) I was able to locate him after about 45 minutes down the street in a cove. Trent was already making his way across town. Sad to say, but I don't think Prissy was to concerned about us finding her brother.
I have an aunt that says whatever you are doing on New Year's day is an indicator of how the rest of your year will go. Tomorrow I plan on spending the day in my pj's, putting all of Christmas up, and organizing. So maybe I will have a productive 2011! I will be having a baby, after all!

I have a friend that asked me to post pregnancy pics on here (you know who you are) ;)! I still haven't decided if I am into doing that yet, but we will see. Nothing has really changed bump wise! In fact, I've lost weight-which is fine with me as long as the baby is growing!

This has been one of my favorite verses for the last two years. And after patiently trying and waiting for God to grant us with a child, we are THRILLED to announce on our blog that we are 12 weeks pregnant!!!! Most family and friends and everyone else that has been in hearing range know this already, but I figured it was time to make it blog official. The upstairs computer and I have not spent much time together for the last 2 months due to exhaustion and going to bed at about 5 o'clock everyday- no lie.
I must admit that in a world and time when you are so used to instant self gratification, the process of conceiving has been a very learning, draining, and maturing experience. I truly don't know if we were ready two years ago when I first asked God to grant us a child. But looking back I feel that He used those two years to strengthen our marriage and help us grow as a couple so that we would be ready when that time came. And His timing could not have been more perfect- in every aspect!!!! Baby Haynes will be here sometime around May 21st, and that means that Trent and I can pretty much have the whole summer off with the baby. I have this feeling that he or she will make their debut before the actual due date (My birth weight was a little over 8 lbs and Trent's was almost 11 lbs)- so I'm praying that we can make it as close to the due date as possible.Today I am officially 12 weeks pregnant, which means I am entering into my 2nd Trimester. We have had great Dr.'s visits so far, and at the last appt Baby Haynes had a heartrate of 178. We did find out that I am Rh-, which means that I have to get a shot at 28 weeks but no big! Evidently my body is not exactly immune to Rubella either-even though I had all my shots when I was younger. So I will have to get a booster shot in the hospital right after the baby comes.
I'm stealing something from Kelly at Kelly's Korner. I am probably not going to be as devoted about doing this as she is, but I think it is a neat way to keep up with the progression of the pregnancy.

Trent and I took off the last week of July and headed to Durham NC (while stopping at Knoxville and Ashville). He has always wanted to see Duke's basketball arena, so that was first on our trip. Then we headed down to Charleston for a weekend and met up with two of my besties from grad school, Jonee' and Whitney and their fellas. We had a great time catching up and sight seeing! Charleston is such a beautiful city.
After we left Charleston, we headed down to Hilton Head-which we loved! Trent is dying to go back and stay longer. Then after leaving HH, we headed to Savannah for a bit! We were busy, busy! I truly loved our vacation and am so thankful that we were able to get away together, but next time I think I am staying in one spot!
On the way home we stopped at the GA Aquarium in Atlanta and just across the way- The World of Coke. Um....let's just say Trent was in heaven. Drinking coke is not really a habit I support of his, and he truly has gotten better about it. But that boys loves him some coke!
Above is our slideshow. I still haven't figured out how to combine everything into one post, so if anyone knows, please share the wealth!

These pics are actually in reverse from when they were taken. Trent and I went to Dallas over the Fourth of July for a long weekend. It was a very relaxing but quick trip. We were able to spend some time with Trent's best friend from high school, Tab, and his family. I didn't get any pics from our time together, but we always enjoy visiting with them. And...I played shuffle board for the first time. I don't know if it was the rush of learning a new game or...the fact that I beat Trent our first round :)- but I have to say that I am a fan now. I was a little intimidated, though, because I was playing on a team with Mr. Gary, Tab's dad. This guy is way more athletic than I'll ever be, considering he's officiated two Super Bowls.
Now, jump ahead....The next two pics are from when Trent and I babysat my best friend Sarah's little boy, JP. He is such a little ham, and I love all his little curls that he is getting. He turns the big 1 next week. I can't believe that a year has already gone by! JP loves Trent and cracks up whenever he's around. Although, I don't think he's too sure about having his picture taken.

We do not get to see them enough because we live so far away from each other, but I'm already looking forward to our next get together-hopefully sooner rather than later.
Here in one pic from our trip to CMOM. The boys both loved it!
Our nieces and nephew from CO came in sometime in the Spring, and we had a nice little visit with them...even squeezing in a picnic and trip to the zoo.

I would much rather be doing what Prissy is doing below, today!... This pic was taken a couple of days after Christmas, and I think she was pretty much worn out! I got a few pics of Elvis over the holidays. But...mostly you just see a leg or a tail! He is a CRAZY dog, but we love him!
So today I am taking advantage of this SNOW DAY!!! and getting caught up around the house! Yea! for snow days..even though we will have to make it up :(.
We had a very busy Christmas season...school parties, birthday dinners, baby showers, baby arrivals, Christmas get-togethers...you name it and we probably did it! We said goodbye to 2009 and rang in 2010. And I must say, although 2010 has gotten off to a rocky start; I am optimistic that 2010 is going to be a great year.
My parents gave us a Fontanini Nativity before Christmas and I cannot wait to add to it in years to come.

We created our Christmas card this year, and I was pleased with the way they turned out. My dad even snapped a few family pics in my parents backyard that turned out ok. With two pups, that is a task in itself!
