Becomes Fall Wreath!!!
I would've just bought another separate wreath to make, but I don't have room to store everything all the wreaths that are crawling around in my mind. So I just took the ivy and roses off, and put on the fall colors. I LOVE the fall!!!!

September 23, 2008!!! Happy Anniversary to us!!!!! We decided to celebrate by going to the Brazilian Steakhouse and it was YUMMY!!! Here's the guy bringing me chicken!
And another guy bringing Luke the Pineapple with cinnamon sprinkled on it.
It was a really fun restaurant. They had like 13 different types of meat for you to try. The best part of the night is when we went to pay and we were told that our bill had already beentaken care of. What a blessing!!!!! It was a great surprise and also really humbling because of God's provision for us.
And here are the beautiful flowers Luke brought me. I know they aren't roses or anything, but these are the ones that I love and the only flowers that I would ever want Luke to bring me. They were the flowers that were unexpectedly in my bridal bouquet and it was beautiful!!! I've loved these flowers ever since!!!
Happy Anniversary Honey!!!! I love you!!!!

First, Jamie, the hostess, made baby this amazing blanket. She knit it all by hand!!! It was so amazing and truly a labor of love. She even carefully and very tediously knit in every single polka dot because she know how much I love polka dots. I almost cried when I saw it.
Next were these bumper pads for the crib. My amazing mother-in-law made these for us and baby, and were also a labor of love. She also made is the dust ruffle that coordinated perfectly. AND Luke's family gave us the mattress, mattress pad, and fitted sheet. Needless to say, our crib was complete! Here is the finished product and we are so excited. How amazing to think that in 10 weeks, our little boy will be living in that crib. We are so thankful for all our presents and God's provision for us. Check out the slideshow to see more shower pictures!!!

Andrea 32 Weeks (i know it's not a great pic, but the best one I've got!)
and Me at 29 WeeksYup, we are only 2 weeks apart. she's ahead. And we're both having boys!!!! The biggest bummer in this whole story is that, when she got married, she moved all the way to Arizona. So sad and happy all the same. So, we've not actually seen each other pregnant. But we talk often and exchange pictures often. We've already thought about what if she were alittle late and I was alittle early, our boys could be born at the same time!!!! YAY!!!! I miss my friend but am thankful because I know that she is very happy in Arizona with her husband.
Can't wait for Baby Benjamin and Baby Mehaffie to meet in March!!!!

On the family time note, my sister moved back from Arizona so we went to Greensboro yesterday to help her get settled in her new apartment. My grandmother came with her and I haven't seen her since our wedding two years ago. Here are the three of us: Wita, me, and Suzie. It was a fun time to be with them just serving her in anything she needed. It was also a good time of clarity for us to see with our eyes, God's blessing and provision for the things that she needed. The only thing was, the kids were with their father so we didn't get a chance to see them. But now that they are back in big NC, we will hopefully get to see them a whole lot more!!

And some more things for the nursery. I would put pics of the progressing nursery but it's still pretty messy trying to transition it! Here is a window I bought at a yard sale for $1. Amazing what some paint and Mod Podge will do! It will go on one of the walls. And the plaques I made for over the crib. Again, gotta love the mod podge!! The green isn't as neon as it looks here. It was our sons hymn on it. The hymn that we sing to our son is Great is Thy Faithfulness. It was the song that God gave Luke to sing to me the night I took the test because I was so anxious and it's the hymn that has brought comfort throughout our pregnancy. I decided to have it in the nursery as a testimony to God's faithfulness. Even though baby won't be able to read for years and years and years, it'll be a reminder for Luke and I everytime we go in the nursery. Here is a close-up. And finally, just because we love her... Our little MissyGirl!! We call her "the one" now but soon she'll become "the two"!
She's so sweet and cuddly!
