We did it!

Yay! We are finally pregnant! March would have been two full years since we started this long process of trying to conceive, and God has finally blessed us! Christopher and I are both ecstatic about this as well as nervous. We are aware that our lives are changing forever, but we also know that it will be great!

We found out Sunday night. I decided to test so that I could see the negative result and stop thinking that I could be pregnant, but instead of seeing a negative, a second line immediately started to show up. I started shaking and laughing and I got Christopher to come take a look at it. He saw the line, too, and it was pretty dark, but we still weren’t sure. So we bought some digital tests that night and tested again. Less than a minute went by before the test read “Pregnant.”

I believe that the baby will be due on November 1, give or take a week. My first appointment will be in about two and a half weeks, and I will update everyone then. I will be giving regular updates (I hope) on the pregnancy as well as progression pictures because, well, it’s just fun!

We covet the prayers of everyone right now that this will be a good pregnancy and that our baby will grow and develop properly and not come before the proper time.

Today’s Monopoly

Christopher and I ran across a new Monopoly a few days ago. It uses credit/debit cards instead of paper money and all the properties are updated by name and price. It looks really cool, and I’d like to play it just to see how well the card system works. But I do not believe it will actually help me enjoy Monopoly.

Recipe of the Day

Cook and shred 5 or 6 chicken breasts.
Mix 16 oz. sour cream with two cans cream of chicken soup.
Mix chicken into sour cream and soup mix and pour evenly into 9X13 pan.

Melt two sticks butter and crush 80 Ritz Crackers into butter and mix.
Sprinkle buttered crackers evenly on top of chicken mix.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes.

I have heard that this recipe is also very tasty when you add broccoli to it although I have yet to try that for myself. Experiment with seasonings if you’d like but it is absolutely delicious if you follow the recipe exactly! (I’m sure some minced onions, garlic, and Tony’s Seasonings would make it taste even more amazing.)
