Our Big Announcement

This past April we found out were having a baby! I was driving home from work, taking a friend home and drove to a CVS Pharmacy on the way. Right then and there IN the store, I found out the Exciting news! I asked the girl at the checkout where her nearest restroom was, she pointed, then said ' let me know the good news.' So there I was, trying to patiently wait for the results. Then, was excited as can be when I found 2 lines on the test! I jumped up and down with tears in my eyes, saying "I'm Pregnant!" Earlier that day I called Colvin telling him that I thought something was up, and wanted to check things out. After I found out I drove as quickly and safely as I could trying to control my emotions and get their in one piece to Colvin's work. I walked into his office with a big smile on my face, and tears in my eyes not having to say a word. The first thing that came out of his mouth was "Shut up... Shut up." I was like, "I'm serious!" I showed him it, and he just shook his head in disbelief. We had been trying for a while. We just sat their and hugged taking it all in.
We then thought of a way to tell our family the Great news! Colvin took the words from a country song "Let them be Little" and changed it up, and put it into his own words and sang it for the family. We had talked earlier about him opening up more for my family, and the way he went about doing this was singing this song. After he had sung it, he through the pregnancy test to my dad. Everyone all at once got up and clobbered both of us with hugs. It was the neatest experience ever, and such a special memory I will always hold dear to me.

We called my mom in South Dakota and Colvin's family letting them know the Great news!
