Christmas 2012 Pictures

 These last two are of us playing in the candy store that Amy works for.

Summer/Fall 2012 Pictures

 This was a trip to Jackson Hole that we went on in July.  We love to travel and with Gavin's job we get the opportunity to do so every now and then.
 We went to Kauai, Hawaii in October with some of Gavin's family.  We are lucky enough to be able to do that once in a while because Gavin's parents have a timeshare condo there.
This is just a fall picture that we took in the mountains near our house.  We loved the yellow leaves!

Our Future Baby's First Friend!

As I have said, we are doing the nursery in lime green and gray.  Well, while we were shopping for new bar stools the other day, we found this adorable green monkey!  I love it!!!  It will be so cute in the nursery and I hope our future little baby will love it and that they will be best friends someday.  I also love that it isn't gender specific.  It is just cute and cuddly.  I'm not sure what to name it.  Any suggestions?

Nursery Basket Makeover

We are officially published today for adoption!!!  We are so excited!  We have also been thinking lately that we need to take the time we have right now to start preparing for when we get our sweet little baby someday (we won't have the normal 9 months to get stuff done, we have no idea when it will happen.)  I've been working on sewing the decor for the nursery and last night we bought a beautiful crib.  I love it!  I'll post pictures as we get things set up.
We are doing the nursery in lime green and gray.  We will leave it this way if we have a boy, and we will add some pink and girly blue to it if we have a girl.  It is going to be modern and super cute.  The only decor I have finished so far is a basket remodel for the changing table.  My sister-in-law has given me so many baby things and I've had fun remaking them to fit our style.  So here is a picture of our new gray baskets!
This is a before and after.  Don't they feel more modern already?

About Me

This blog is all about our desires to start our family. So far it hasn't worked out for us. We did get pregnant back in 2009. I only carried it for 10 weeks. We have had no luck since then. Gavin and I have always been very pro adoption. So here we are. We were chosen by an amazing, sweet young woman, she chose us right after finding out that she was pregnant. We loved her so much. But sadly she lost the baby when she was 16 weeks along. So we are still waiting for that special baby to come into our home. We wanted to start this blog to help you get to know us a bit better. I just think that it's different seeing a blog rather than just reading a profile. Enjoy! And don't be afraid to leave comments!
