Life just started moving a little faster!!

I figure I had better update this or my cousin Alison will give me a hard time!! What would be a post without a picture of Grant?? This was take Friday March 6, 2009. We were on our way up to Casa Grande, and the only way he rides happy is if he is eating. I finally learned that suckers last longer than anything!! I am happy to announce that the sucker made it to Casa Grande!! He is such a joy in my life, and I love him to death!! He can now tell mommy and daddy where his nose is!!! It is so fun to watch him grow up.


On Saturday, Mark and I had an open house/reception with our families. It was great to have everyone around, while enjoying the sun. Just don't ask Bethany, Mark's sister, I guess the Sun and her don't get a long as well. Most of Mark's family was able to make it, and I am so blessed to have married into such a wonderful family!! His Aunt and Uncle came all the way from Virginia. Over all, I had a great time, and loved re meeting his family. Mark will be very surprised when he meets the Binghams'.... One side of my family makes up for both sides of his!!
Kim drove from Utah to come for one day! She left Friday afternoon and went home Sunday morning. She truly is the most awesomest chick! She made the cutest center pieces, and took the pressure off me!!! Yes, we are two foxy ladies. I am so glad that she is still part of my life!! I do promise there were other pictures taken, but not by my camera.
Well Mark and I have been getting adjusted to being married. I have no complaints. He is the sweetest man I have ever met... Out side of my dad that is :) He thinks of me and does everything he can to help!! I love him SO much, and that's why I am excited to announce...

I guess it doesn't get any clearer than this!! Mark and I (Grant was there for the news as well) found out on February 22, 2009, that we are expecting! ! We figure that we are due somewhere around November 2. We have a Dr's appointment set for the end of the month and we will find out for sure then!! But we're both extremely excited and can't wait. Although, I don't remember being the sick with Grant!! I'm only a month along, and already I'm sicker than a dog!!! It will be worth it, I know!!

Yay, you updated your blog without me telling you too! I'm so proud of you! ;) Congratulations again on the baby! I'm glad it's not a secret anymore! Can't wait to see you this summer! Remember the last time you made that trip while pregnant? At least it will only be one pregnant lady this time!

I like your idea with the sucker, man I never thought of such a good idea...you are awesome!

Your reception was so nice! The weather could not have been more perfect and of course the surroundings were absolutely "garden of eden" like!

I am so happy for you and Mark! I can't wait to find out if Grant will have a sister or brother! MAYBE TWINS! lol!!! I hope you get feeling better soon!

Love ya!

Rachel,
That is so exciting! Hey, I am coming down to Arizona the beginning of June to visit my grandma and other family. Maybe you could come up to Casa Grande and we could meet up sometime! I would love to see you again!
