How It All Began!

I guess I should start with how it all began...
My husband and I weren't discussing "trying" and we thought we were a good year or two from contemplating becoming parents.  Well God knew better!  At this time in our lives we were going through a major life changing possibility, my young, healthy mother was awaiting the results to know if she had breast cancer.  "Surely not"..."It's not in your family history"..."You're so healthy" we told ourselves.  Monday, September 13, 2010 we got the devestating news that not only did she have a malignant lump one, but in BOTH breasts!! You can imagine our shock!  As we were adjusting to this life altering turn of events, Thursday September 16, 2010, I came home with a pregnancy test.  I had thought my monthly visitor was on its way but still no I was getting paranoid.  We were about to meet my in-laws for dinner and while we waited I took the test, it was positive.  I told my husband hesitantly the results to which he urged me to take another, so I did and again...positive. 

I was really excited and elated!  I was also freaked, "me??? pregnant??" We went and had a lovely dinner with the in-laws all the while I was completely distracted!  We got home and I thought I'd take one more, just for good measure, and of course another positive result.  We were excited, happy and in shock!  There was still one last thing to do, we had to tell everyone.  We are all so very close everyone would know something was up, so I had to announce this before someone guessed!  We planned to have a nice homecooked meal at my parents the next day and invite my husbands parents as well.  We didn't want to tell one set of parents before the other.  No one suspected a thing!  I wanted to tell them in a creative way and I always thought the saying "bun in the oven" was a cute/funny saying.  So I was in charge of bringing the dessert!
They were beyond thrilled!!! Our parents had been saying they were ready and excited to be grandparents, their wish had come true!  Monday, a devestating diagnosis, Friday, a bundle of joy!!

God knew exactly what our family needed and at the perfect time!!
