Brrr.... it was cold outside, but inside it was cozy with the wood stove working.

As I look back over the year, I cannot help but give thanks to God for his bountiful blessings to us. First, in February, God united my life with Kevin's life! The joy I've experienced has been amazing. The knowledge that I've married God's best man for me was worth the wait during my single years.
Second, our new found family is adding in number. A beautiful baby is on the way! (I know our baby is beautiful, because God has made him/her wonderfully made!)
There is more and more and more to give thanks to God for...Thanksgiving Day has come and gone, but the time to give thanks to the Lord will always be here...
In November, my Uncle and his family traveled from Indiana to visit my family. For the Thanksgiving weekend, we were able to spend some time with them as well.
Here are a few photos to recap that week:

So.. with some good pictures from the zoo, I thought everyone would enjoy seeing what I captured:
Previously, I've always tried to give the impression that the zoo animals were taken somewhere other than in the zoo. For example, try not to show the cages, bars, etc...but zoom in, snap a photograph that would give the image of being totally free in the wild. With that, here is the elegant Scarlet Macaw. God truly has made things beautiful! I just love the vibrant colors? By the way, Mr. Macaw could even say hello!
The common Monarch butterfly.

As for me, morning sickness hits at various times of the day, so in between spurts of nausea, I try to accomplish all the tasks around the house, cooking, cleaning, and a little reading. (Currently, I'm reading three books, a Tale of Two Cities, Vanya, and a child rearing book.)
In our travels, Kevin and I drove down to the Nashville Advanced Training Institute Conference. It was superb! Various speakers spoke powerful messages about Christian living. Also, we were able to visit Biblical Missions WorldWide (BMW) June 10th, a mission board located outside of Atlanta, GA. It was a great time of fellowship with the state-side BMW team. We learned a lot and are now praying about what direction God would have us to go.
Summer is almost here, isn't it? The weather in Tennessee has sure heated up... We praise the Lord for Air Conditioning! :)
Well, a better update will soon follow.
'Till next time, Tally HO!

Kevin and I took a two day camping trip at Cherokee's National Forest this week. What a delightful time we had together. We were able to get away from the norm of busy life, spend some quality time together, experience God's beautiful handiwork, and take time to praise God for the many blessings He has given to us.
The area we camped totally picturesque. Unfortunately, I failed to bring along my SLR Canon camera. I missed my good friend. Nonetheless, I did carry the compact Canon Powershot camera. It did the job it was supposed to do: capture an overview of our time together.
Here are a few snaps shots of our time in Citico, Tennessee:
