Exciting News!

While we have known of our exciting news for several weeks, we're finally letting the cat out of the bag and announcing it to the world....

We're so blessed to announce that we are expecting another baby!!! 

When we first told Stella that she was going to have a brother or a sister she immediately said "No like it brother sister!"  Yikes!  That made me super nervous so I quickly changed my comment to her into a question..."Stella, do you want a brother or a sister?!"  Which she replied "Brother!!!"  I know she doesn't exactly know all that's going to happen when the baby arrives, however, I do know that she is a very loving child and will be super excited once we bring home her brother or sister.  Baby DiEduardo is scheduled to arrive June 20, 2012.  Kyle has a regional meeting in Hilton Head the weekend of June 14-16 so we'll just have to see how that works out.  We also have exciting things coming up in the next couple of months...our house is on the market (praying someone will fall in love w/ it and want to buy it in the next couple of months so we'll have time to get settled in our new home before the babe arrives.  But I'm leaving it all in God's hands!), we are going to Puerto Vallarta in March and we are going to see The Fresh Beat Band in April.  Lots going on in the DiEduardo household but we are super blessed and look forward to the exciting year ahead.

Thanksgiving - A Happy Heart

We had my my mom's side of the fam over for Thanksgiving.  We have hosting Thanksgiving at our house ever since my grandmother passed away in 2007.  It makes my heart happy to be able to carry on her recipes and see everyone enjoying the delicious food we've grown to love throughout the years.  It also makes my heart happy to see everyone commenting on how similar it tastes to the way Granma made it.  I know she would be proud and that makes my heart even happier!

My brother and my mom weren't able to join us this year.  My mom was w/ her hubby's fam in New York and my brother was w/ my dad's side of the fam.  We definitely missed them but enjoyed those who could make it.  Our family has grown over the past few years and now there are three kiddos running around, playing and giggling.  That made my heart happy and I knew that my Granma and Granddaddy were looking down smiling.  As I thought about what I was thankful for this year it was more blessings than I could count.  And my heart is full and happy!
