I continue to grow all the time. McCoy is a mover and a shaker! He likes to do a wiggle dance in my belly all day long and sometimes through the night. We have started on his room, but still lots to get done. Bo and I recently went to Gatlinburg and had a nice time. Here are some pics!

It's a BOY!

Bo and I will be expecting a little baby boy in April!

So far he is doing very well. We have decided on Glen McCoy Payne and calling him McCoy/Mack. Glen is Bo's dad's name and his grandmother's maiden name. McCoy is Bo's middle name and his mother's father's name. Mack is actually my great grandfathers name :) I had to get in there somewhere!! We do have our house for sell, but no real movement. We both have great jobs here, but are looking to be closer to family. If it doesn't work out we know that it is God's plan for us to stay. I can't wait to get his room started! I have been feeling great. My Lupus is being closely monitored so that nothing happens to little Mack! We feel so blessed. Please pray that our little angel will be healthy.

Gatlinburg Trip!

Bo and I took some time off to visit Gatlinburg. We had an awesome cabin with an amazing view!

We ate at our favorite Reuben place and did lots of hiking!

The Nashville Flood

The weekend of the Nashville Flood Bo and I were in Birmingham having our class reunion. It was great! We left on Sunday to come home and heard there was some flooding :) We really had no idea what that entailed.
Bo had been in Mobile all week working so we were in separate cars. We remained on the phone in case one of us floated off the road because we couldn't see each other it was raining so bad. I took Penny (our girl dog) and Bo took Paul (our boy dog). Right when we past into TN we started to see what flooding meant. It looked like we were driving through Niagara Falls the water was pouring over the rocks on the interstate. We were going through massive pools of water...scary times...even for the dogs. Paul started to get a little gassy at the thought of all this going on AND THEN, WE HAD DIARRHEA!!!. Poor Bo was gagging. Paul was in his lap when it happened and to keep it contained in his car, he held Paul IN HIS LAP!! We had to pull over at a gas station (along with 50 other drivers trying to get out of the flood) so I could take Paul. Yes...Bo couldn't handle the poop. was REALLY bad. We managed to make it home. It looked like White Water rapids on the sides of the roads and the city was under water so we had to take detours everywhere we went. But THANK YOU GOD that our house was fine and after a good shower and a $200 car detail so was Bo :)

10 year reunion

Well, for those that don't know I was ambitious in High School and decided to run for President. Little did I know that 10 years later I would be stressing out over my reunion. I (and one lucky VP) have been working on this for a year now. It's scheduled for May 1st and I'm hoping people come because we have put a lot into it. This is the place we are having it:
And for those of you who aren't going to your 10 year reunion...YOU SHOULD!! There is a lot of work that goes into it and at least show up and say hey to everyone.

Last weekend we had 4in of snow and then 2in of ice on top of it! It made for some fun sled riding! This video is of my sister-in-law Honnie and her son Luke. Bo is riding backwards in front of them (please excuse his language!)

Bo is out of town this week in Rhode Island so he is getting to continue the joy of snow. My parents are coming up this weekend to visit. We are going to go to Henpeck Market in Franklin. I just went there the other day and there is so much I want to buy and eat!

Well, it didn't last long, but we did get some snow! The dogs felt it was their responsibility to each all the snow off the porch...
