Just sayin' HI!

Today we're just stopping in to say "HI!"  We've been spending a lot of our time lately in the library working on a project, so we thought we'd give you a little glimpse of what it's looked like :)

Hope you're all well!

Some Updates!

We're back with a few updates (ya know how things are going these days...we're slow at updating around here for a few more weeks :)

Our time in VA:  Things are going well!  We're over half way there...whoo hoo!  It's been a good time.  A tiring time.  But a good time of growth and learning.  Today we had some good, quality time with the Lord, which was much needed.

Nausea and other such pregnancy-related items:  Yes, nausea and I have been constant companions over the past four or so weeks.  So in addition to snacking lots, drinking plenty of water (thanks to my husband's intense "encouragement" if you will), and taking naps, I have been going to bed EARLY!!  One night I was even in bed at 5 about TIRED...whew.

Cute tid-bits:  The grandparents are excited about this little one.  Jason's parents have already outfitted our little one with the best sports gear around (we're talking ASU and Carolina, friends).  My mama also sewed this sweet blanket for the baby...

Jas and his non-pregnant health:  He has had a cold, but is thankfully on the up and up.  In other news, he has been getting to bed pretty early too!

Thanks again for the prayers and always, it's appreciated :)

September 18, 2011

That's the projected date.  That's right...a special date.

Of what, you ask?

Baby Palmer number ONE!

It's true!  You read correctly!  Baby Palmer 1 is on its way.  And we couldn't be more excited!!

After prayer and discussion we've decided its time to share with all our family and friends.  Yes, it's still fairly early, but we (and in particular I) have been learning over and over through the course of the past few weeks that this child is not ours.  It's the Lord's.  He can and will do with it as He pleases!

I am learning to trust Him with our baby's life.  And I am sure this will be a life-long lesson.  

We are asking that you pray with us and for us during this time!  Please pray particularly for this baby to continue to grow and be healthy.  Pray that we rest and rely solely on the Lord.  And pray that the Lord's will be done, and not our own.  We so appreciate it! 

And here's a picture of our little one at about 5 weeks.  Now he/she is around 10 weeks old!  Crazy!  What an amazing God we have :)

Box o' Yumminess!

The other day we opened our mail box and much to our excitement, we had a package!!!

And not just any package.

You see, Jason's sis, Marianne, is one heck of a chef (cook, baker, etc...). She basically rocks in the kitchen and can cook up a mean storm.  I'm a little envious (but we won't tell her that, right?)

All that to say, in our box was COOKIES!!!!  I love cookies.  And these weren't just any cookies.  There were Charity cookies (double chocolate chip) and Jason cookies (oatmeal raisin), and plenty of cookies to share.

We were pretty much stoked.

So thanks, Marianne, for the deliciousness.  And if any of you know Marianne you can always ask her to bake you some cookies...if you're lucky, she just might ;)

His Favorite Pastime

Last Sunday was one of those super exciting, sunny you just can't wait to be out in!

So after small group and lunch, Jas hit up the bait and tackle room, selected a pole and headed toward the pond (a quite large one, I must add).

And because you all know I jump on any opportunity to take pictures, here's what I got...

There ya have man at his finest (and goofiest ;)

And I'm sad to say he caught no fish that day (but don't tell him I told you so! shhhh)

We have received quite a few letters (and even some packages) in the mail here lately!  We can't tell you how they have brightened our day(s).

So we just wanted to say THANK YOU for the sweet notes and letters of encouragement...they're much appreciated!

And look!  Your letters even gave me a reason to take a know that made me doubly happy :)

Oh, and happy SUPER BOWL day!

A 'Lil Note to my Camera

Dear Camera,

I really miss you.  Like really, a lot.  I have picked you up MAYBE once since having been here in Virginia.  That's more than a week...and that's far too long, my dear friend.  My fingers long to have you in them, to click away, and feel reunited!  My creative side is feeling a bit deprived...and you're the solution.  So what do you say, can we please make a date soon? I know a great icy pond (with beautiful morning views) where we can hang out a while...

Missing you,

P.S.-- here's a picture of me with the newest part of you (remember, your new lens!)
