Leslie and Stephen get married!

This past weekend Leslie Parks and Stephen Meyers were married. The girls and I made the trip to Lynchburg Va. Friday morning and John came in later that evening. It was so much fun visiting with friends and celebrating with Leslie and Stephen. I am just amazed at how God works and how he brought the two of them together. When I was a RD at Liberty, Leslie was one of my RA's for two years. We became great friends and continued as friends when I stopped working. I love going to wedding's where God is the center and is praised. That is exactly how their wedding was. Leslie looked absolutely beautiful and the day was perfect! Thank you so much for letting me be part of it :) Here are some pictures from the wedding that were taken by the talented Sabrena Carter! She is amazing!

Me, Leslie and my baby bump...I am 13 weeks pregnant and very thankful that I fit into my dress :)
I am not sure why the rest are so small...I will try and fix that later, but you get the idea of some of the pictures.

Anna's 3rd Birthday

We celebrated Anna's 3rd birthday this past Saturday. My parents, Chris Deitsch, and Chris's Mom came into town for the day to help celebrate with us. It was a really fun day with family and friends. I was trying to run the party and take pictures so I only have some of Anna and not the whole group :(  Anna was so excited for her party! She was especially excited for the cupcakes. I can't believe my baby is already 3 years old.

Here are some pictures of the party and few of the girls dressed up as Barney and Baby Bop. The costumes were sent to us from my friend Brittany :) Anna loves wearing them..Eliza thought she would like it, but hasn't wanted to dress up all.

The next day she woke up and said my presents are still here :) I guess she thought those gifts were just for the day, but she was glad to know that they were hers and would be staying at our house.

What we have been up to the past few months.....

I realize that I have been slacking on my blog, but I really have good excuses!!!! I do!! Well, we have moved from Lynchburg, Va to Ft. Bragg NC. It has been a pretty smooth transition. Moving is just hard. It just is. We are starting over meeting friends, finding a church, learning about the area, and adjusting to army life. The good news is that we are adjusting. We have found a great church and we are looking to get pluged in. I even found a playgroup to take the girls to every Monday.
My other news, more exciting news, is that I am 11.5 weeks pregnant. Today has been the first day that I can say I feel great. This pregnancy has been the most difficult with morning sickness. Well, more like ALL day sickness. I have never thrown up so much in my life. I have been extra sensitive with smells and foods. I am almost out of this first trimester and hoping to feel great during the second trimester. I have my first OB appointment tomorrow morning so praying that everything looks great. I found out that I was pregnant the first weekend we moved here. I was absolutley convinced that I wasn't pregnant. We were sitting in church and I just had waves of nausea come over me. Later that afternoon I took a test, the next day I took two more tests, and then the third day I took one more. You would think with my third pregnancy I would believe it after the first test.
We lived at the airborne inn for the first couple weeks at Ft Bragg. Here are some pictures from those weeks.

Here are a couple pregnany tests....

With all this going on you can see why I have not even thought about the blog :) Hope you enjoyed some pictures!! More to come soon. I have the messiest house, but as soon as it is clean I willl post some pictures of where we are living.
