Marriage Retreat

Okay, I don't know about anyone else but I loved the marriage retreat and really enjoy using all the new tools we learned. Jim and Acton were amazing to listen too and were really funny. I am excited to see what new levels our marriage goes too with all that we learned. We have our first official date night tonight! YEAH!! Can't wait!

Thomas C. Martin III

Yep! That's right we are having a BOY and he will be named after his dad. The doctor said everything looks great and he weighs about 15oz. The ultrasound lady was asking us what we thought it was or if we had any names picked out and I told her if it is a girl I have no idea on a name and if it is a boy he will be named after his dad and granddad. She kept looking at the baby and then said well looks like it is going to be the third! Tommy's face just lite up with joy and excitement. I couldn't help but ball my eyes out at how proud he was at that moment. We have obviously only known one day and you wouldn't believe the amount of people who have said, "Now you can stop you will have your boy and your girl." My response to all of you that may be wondering the same thing is Tommy and I firmly believe that is not the Lord's will for our lives and the future of our family. We may take a little longer break between the next ones but we love being parents and for sure want more! After seeing the ultrasound picture Tommy and I know that God already has everything for Thomas planned out.

“I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born, I set you apart & appointed you as my spokesman to the world.” Jeremiah 1:4

Home Sweet Home

I am so glad to live in Charleston!!! HA HA I am not a cold weather person and neither is our daughter. We absolutely enjoyed visiting and had a blast but we are glad we get to leave the cold snowy weather and return home to warmer weather. We didn't get to our resort till about 1:00am on Monday and when we got there is was 2 degrees and with the wind chill at the top of the mountain it was negative 25 degrees. Poor Tommy tried running to the room with some of our bags before we got out of the car and fell in about four foot of snow and lost his shoes! He had no idea it was that deep or fluffy! Gracie seemed to like the snow but didn't like touching it with her hand because it was too cold. She would make funny faces at you when she would touch it. We were able to take her sledding and she loved it. I must say her favorite thing of all was the indoor heated swimming pool. A HUGE BATH TUB in her mind! She is for sure a water baby! I can't wait to see how she is this summer. Here are a few pictures to share with you from our trip.

The snow we had to walk in everyday to get to our room

Wild Hair!!

I have the craziest father in law in the world. I love him to death but he is crazy!! Yesterday afternoon around 3:00 he called and had been watching the weather channel(his favorite channel) and saw where N.C. got a lot of snow so decided we needed to go for a quick trip! I just got off the phone with Tommy this morning and we are leaving this afternoon for a three day trip! WOW! Talk about spur of the moment!! Will share our photos when we return!
