This is my first post. I'm not sure what to write. There are exciting things happening to friends and family. I don't have any real exciting news for all of you out there except that Gibson and Haven start Mother's Day Out next week! That means that next Thursday I will have 9:30 - 2:30 for running errands or scrapbooking or cleaning or I might go to a movie!! I'm getting very excited just thinking about it.

I do have one story I thought I should tell on my very first Blog. Alot of my stories will have something to do with family b/c that is my life. I have 2 wonderful blessing in my life that wear me out! But I am greatful.
I was asked last Sunday at our small group bible study, "What is the biggest surprise you have ever received?" I was in the kitchen trying to feed my kids. I walked into the living room and pointed and said, "These two in here were both surprises!"
That got me thinking back to November 2001. Andrew and I had just gotten back from visiting my family in Arkansas and seeing his Grandparents in Branson. While in Branson we purchased a gift for his parents. This gift was our way of telling his mom and dad that I was pregnant. It was a little pillow that said, "Baby sleeps here." I remember handing them this present and watching them unwrap it. They opened it and stared and then..... they SCREAMED and jumped up and down and hugged. It was so fun.
Now, fast forward to March 2002. AGAIN, I need to tell family that I am pregnant. This time I just said it. I told my mom and she did a little dance. The funny thing is that later when I told my in-laws, Lyndel did a very similar dance. They were all so thrilled. I was in shock!
It took me a while, but I too was able to dance and rejoice. (Now a days I mainly dance to the wiggles)

I'm glad you started this blog! I tried to create links on mine and instead of editing the ones I had somehow I deleted them. Anyway, I'm trying to figure the blog thing out too! Well, tell your sweet surprises that Aunt Christy said hi!


P.S. You should change your settings so that people who are not bloggers can comment - it says

It cut off my message - anyway it says that people who are not bloggers cannot post but you can change that in the settings. Just to let you know!

Well! How fun is this? It will be fun to see pictures of the kids and hear what's happening in your lives. And yes, I remember the surprises and the dances! Too much excitement not to dance!

That is a perfect way to begin a blog. Actually, it's a perfect way to begin a story starring the Littleton family. I hope this story goes on for years!
