I live for today.

And today, we're pregnant!

We decided to spill the beans after two blood tests, only done because of my paranoia... no signs of anything except a healthy pregnancy.

We asked my sister Jessica, and Joel's brother Chris to make the announcement for us in a sneaky way... we asked them to volunteer to say prayer before eating at our family Christmas parties, and say a normal prayer but at the very end say very quickly, "And I pray for a healthy baby for Olivia and Joel amen!"

Then wait for the reaction.  It was fun.  Lots of screams, hugs, kisses and talking to my belly.

My mom kept saying it was the best gift, and Joel's Mom gave me a million kisses and then said she was about to cry.

We're very excited.  We were hesitant, Joel especially, to get excited... but after today we are letting ourselves feel what you're suppose to feel when you get those two lines.

This is the last Christmas as the three of us, next year... it will be the four of us.

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
