unless of course you're me! I honestly wasn't going to blog this, but I decided to since a few of you were concearned about the low note my Christmas ended on. I am very happy and excited to say that I am going to have a new niece or nephew this year! It will be the first blood related niece or nephew I've ever had. Sadly though, it is my little sister that will be having the baby. She is not married and is just a junior in high school. She has a boyfriend that loves her very much and says he will stick by her through this. That is a lot more than most teen mothers have and I'm thankful for that much anyway. She has me too and I will do what I can to make sure she finishes high school and furthers her education beyond that. I am very blessed to have a wonderful supportive husband and am able to stay at home to raise my children. I wish more than anything that she would not have lost her youth and that she would have had a family in a similar situation to mine. So, it is what it is and I will love that baby just as much, maybe even more than I would had it come into the world under more ideal circumstances. Thank you for your concearn and please pray for my sister and her baby, and most definately for my poor mother!
The last day of the year we went to Avila Beach with lots of family and cousins galore. I've got a lot of great pictures that I'll post soon and we'll be back to happier posts, hopefully!
