Giving Thanks

To celebrate the Thanksgiving Holiday, here's a small list of things I am thankful for this year:

1) I am thankful to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

2) I am thankful that I am the husband of the most beautiful, intelligent, hilarious woman in the world.

3) I am thankful that we're going to Texas for Christmas to see my family, especially the ones who live in Singapore!

4) I am thankful for a job that I enjoy, I have friends at, and that I don't dread going to.

5) I am thankful to be in school where I am learning to be a better person and prepare for a brighter future.

6) I am thankful for the friends I have

7) I am thankful this year is almost over

8) I am thankful that I have almost all of my Christmas shopping done.

9) I am thankful to be alive, healthy, and happy.

10) Most of all, I am thankful for the blessing we're excited to welcome to the world in June!

Baby is only 3 months along right now, about 1 inch long in that picture, now he or she is about the size of a lime.

We are so excited to be parents, and have a whole new list of things to be thankful for, and stressed about!

Oh my gosh! Yay, congratulations. You are going to love being parents. I look forward to being updated on the gender. Hope we get to see you at Christmas!!

That was a really good way of telling people! CONGRATS!!!

Austin said...

Thanks, I thought so.

Apologies to anyone who left a comment on the blog in the past alluding to or referring to the baby, we are only now making it public. :)

I promise we won't delete any comments unless they're obscene, or so stupid it hurts to read it.

But then, none of our readers would be stupid. ;P

AWESOME!!!! That's so exciting! I remember when Laurie first told me she was pregnant - cool feeling. I love being a Dad, and I know you will too. See you soon, hopefully.
