Mother's Day

Unfortunately, Phil and I are not in close proximity to any of our family at this time so we weren't able to be with either of our mom's for Mother's Day. However, we still managed to make a pretty great gift for both of our moms for Mother's Day this year. We decided to give them the "best Mother's Day gift ever." Unfortunately, as we let them know, their gift is backordered for a few months. Care to guess what it could be?










Guesses anyone?









Are you ready?...







































If you haven't guessed by now...we are having a baby! So, on Mother's Day, we got to call our mom's and let them know they'd be having a grandbaby! This will be the first grandbaby in Phil's family and the second in mine. It was really fun getting to call everyone and give them the good news! We also called a lot of other family and friends as well. As my friend, Michaela, said, it must have something to do with the Colorado water. (Be ready Sarah!) We are both excited about what the the coming weeks, months and years will bring. I promise to keep all of my friends and family up-t0-date with news of our little one. :) We just found out on Friday and will most likely be due sometime in January. I'll keep you all posted as I learn more details.


On Friday, I decided I should figure out a creative way to tell Phil. So, I purchased a little pair of baby booties and wrapped them up and also made a baby dinner. What's a baby dinner you ask? Well, baby-back ribs, baby carrots, baby corn and baby potatoes of course. When he opened the present and saw the booties he said, "We're not pregnant are we?" Of course I told him we were and then I showed him the pregnancy test. It's been a fun start of our pregnancy.

Love,


Megan, Phil and Baby

































































Disclaimer: Phil and I called many of our friends and family to let them know the good news. I apologize if you didn't get a call and would have liked one. We'd love to hear from you though. Please leave a comment, send an email or give us a call.
