We're expecting!

Yes, folks, you read it right. We are expecting. And yes, for those who've lost count, we are expecting our fifth child. ;)
This might be unexpected for most people who shake their heads when they find out I'm expecting my fifth child. However, for us, (although this wasn't planned) we believe that this is a gift from God and we humbly accept his gift, ever mindful of the wonderful privilege He has bestowed upon us.
The kids are really excited about having another sibling. The girls want to have another baby sister. The boy wants to have a baby brother. For DH and I, we would like to be able to hand out Black and Mild cigars when I deliver that baby. okay, so the cigars will probably be candy cigars or something but you know what I mean! Whether the baby is a boy or girl is not the foremost concern though, we pray for a happy and healthy baby and an uneventful labor and delivery for me. For those who know my birth stories, you would agree that we really need to pray for that! LOL!
