We are having...

We had a really busy weekend - and I, actually my little brother, is going to put a video together of how we told our parents about the sex of the baby - but in the mean time, I don't want to keep everyone waiting as you all have waited long enough. So here is the story in pictures, video to come in a few days...

Letter to Pa & G-Ma (Pappy and GG got one too)
Pa & G-ma reading their letter
GG & Pappy reading the letter
This is what they opened the door to! Pink and Blue Ribbon Everywhere!
The yarn leads to letters, that would spell out the baby's name.
Pa & G-ma are such good sports!
(Chuy and WT are helping)
Pappy and GG working hard!
All the yarn is up - now to figure out the name...
Still working!
It's a Girl!
Yep - we are having a precious baby girl. Her name is Carli Lynn. She is being named after her two grandpa's (Carlis Dwayne and Terry Lynn). I'm thinking they will spoil her rotten! We have actual video of the fun of the yarn maze - and we'll post it later.

In the mean time, I'll post some before and after pics of the house. The wood floors are down and thanks to Terry & Tessie spending their whole wkd working with us, we got crown molding and base boards done in our bedroom, as well as painted our bathroom. They also helped us put together the entertainment center and tile around the fireplace! We all worked so hard, and the house is starting to look all grown up!! ha!

This weekend was also the weekend of my Grandparents 60th wedding anniversary. The majority of my aunts, uncles, parents, brothers and cousins all surprised them at church Sunday morning. They renewed their vows and as a gift the family gave them new wedding bands. I was able to meet them in Jacksonville for lunch. It is always so much fun when the whole family gets together. I'm pretty sure Grandma smiled all day long!

What a busy, great weekend!
