Derek and Janel + One!!

Well it has finally happened. Janel and I are proud to announce that we are going to be having a baby!! We found out while we were up at my parents house for Brent's homecoming last week and we confirmed it with a blood test at the clinic I work at. We have our first appointment tomorrow so we will hopefully find out more, but we think she is about 7 or 8 weeks along. We are really excited about this and we can not wait to add a new member to our family.

Our dear brother Brent (second in from the left) is finally coming home. Derek's brother has been in Iraq and Baghdad for the last two years....and his journey home has finally started. We are so excited for him and his family. We are even more excited that Jennie (his wife) no longer has to be a single mom with two crazy, but adorable kids. Oh the good times ahead of us all. Derek and I are thrilled that we will be joining everyone in Utah in a few weeks for Brent's homecoming party. I am so proud of all of our military, and their families. I have learned first hand how hard it can be when your husband is gone. Jennie once described it to me that "it is a little harder to breathe when they are gone.' It is true. My husband's family may be crazy, but they are a strength to my life, and my testimony everyday. We are soooo happy for you guys Brent and Jennie!!! We love you!
