Little white shoes..

Shopping in our second hand store, my mom pulled a pair of classic white, high top baby shoes out of a drawer. They were marked seventy five cents. They are adorable. They have little laces and oh they are just so cute and they looked brand new. My mom kept them in her hand and started looking over at the toy section.

At the same time, in the same store, Carole was grabbing these adorable baby dresses that were 10 cents each. She also found other baby clothing all 10 cents and al in excellent condition.

It was funny how many baby things we were finding for great prices. A few weeks ago we found a Boppy for a dollar and a quarter and my mom found a whole crib bedding set for four dollars and it was brand new.....

Three weeks ago Sunday...

"Girls!" Carole and I tossing and turning in bed I looked over at my clock. "Seven O clock!" I hear Carole's groans a mile away. "It's Sunday." She growled. "I know..." I snared "We have another hour of sleep before we need to get ready for church." "GIRLS!" We both knew we don't argue with that tone of voice. We both jumped out of our beds and ran downstairs.

My eyes were still trying to adjust to the cruel lamp light that was shining in my parents room. I rubbed my eyes profusely while I heard Carole's gasp. I looked up and forced my eyes to focus on the object my mom was holding, taking in the fact that my father was taking pictures of us and we had no MAKE UP on. My mom cleared her throat, a little emotion coming into her voice. "We are having Chinese food tonight!" We both cheered! "Here's the menu, order what you want!" "Thanks mom and dad!" We both chorused and skipped back into bed.

LOL do you believe me? Alright I'll go back to the story. "We are having a baby!" "I knew it!" I shouted while I still rubbed my eyes. Even though I knew it, I tried desperately to tamp down the shock that was threatening to show itself on my face. Carole giggled like a school girl. Mom proceeded to tell us that Aaron found out about an hour before we did while I began to announce we needed to buy everything and anything that has a slight resemblence to Winnie The Pooh. (The nursery's theme.)

So, my bloggie peeps I have been wanting to share this news with all of you for a while now. My mom is indeed going to make me a big sister again! It was totally a shock but we are still very happy and thankful to God for this blessing!

So that's why we are buying all of this baby stuff, because we are going to have a baby in the house again after seventeen years!!!!!!

Pictures will soon be coming sometime in August!!!
