Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. I pray that her thoughts would remain on You and Your goodness, and that she would then be held by your perfect peace.
I have been clinging to this verse anytime the devil tries to get in my head. He has no place in our house or in any part of this amazing part of our life. Mark and I know this is all in God's plan, it doesn't make it easier but we do have comfort in leaning on our God. I pray and hurt for all the lost husband and wives out there that go through terrible things and don't rely on God.
Today my mom, sister, and grandma are coming up to visit me...in bed! I am so excited. My mother-in-law has been here the past 2 days helping SO MUCH! She is great. We have a full pantry and frozen home cooked meals to last forever. (well, not forever but it feels like it)
Mark has been in the middle of finals week through all this, and he has been amazing! I could not ask for anything better. He has been studying for HOURS...and I mean HOURS...he has done so well and is almost finished...as of noon today!! Yahooo for him!!!
Tomorrow we go to the Dr. I think it will ease our minds to finally sit down and talk to him face to face after being told by phone the issues. (maybe...just MAYBE they will be able to tell the sex!?!?) Happy Wednesday everyone!

I been so blessed to no "morning sickness." Just recently I did have to miss my first day of work due to a 12 hour terrible migraine, other than that I have been GREAT! Mark and I visited his "maw-maw" in the nursing home last weekend and I have to admit I did get sick there. (It was dinner time and smells REALLY get to me) This weekend I am going home for a night. I am so excited to spend time with my family! Mark doesn't get to go because he has to study for finals ALL weekend! (keep him in your prayers) I can't believe Tri-2 is almost over!
I hope everyone has a great weekend and keeps in mind "the reason for the season!"

Growing up we have the traditions of who's side of the family we go to on which day/eve. When Mark and I got married we decided because of the traveling we would take turns. We see my family on Christmas Day one year and his on Christmas Eve and then swap the next! It's the only fair way.....

My sister-in-law and her family just got back from a trip to Disney and the brought the babies back something cute! We don't know if they are boys or girls yet...(though in exactly 1 week from today we will know if they are identical or not)...but if they are girls we can add some bows and a cute skirt/leggings. :)

Babies R Us had this awesome comforter/blanket on clearance...and there was only 2 left...fancy that?!?!
I recently found 2 mobiles that I love and the GREAT thing about twins, I can get both, I don't have to decide which one to get...LOVE IT!
I know I will have to do some work on them to make them just perfect but it can be done. The elephant one is the KidsLine Brand, it's the same as the blankets. The giraffe one I found on JcPenny's website, it's the CoCaLo Brand....I just love them!
Well, that's about all I have at this point but we still have time. :) Now if only I could get my dad to get started on building an office in our basement. "Love ya, Dad!"

Mark's Aunt and Uncle had a litter of Labradoodle (mix between a lab and poodle) puppies in April 2007. We were engaged and decided we really wanted one. Who wouldn't puppies are so cute...right!?!?
We have SO many pictures with our dogs, bear with me...I couldn't decide on just a few. I can't imagine what our pictures are going to be like with 2 children!
The picture above is of Mark and Ely the day we got to take him home! We named him Ely Callaway Schmitz. Mark is a golfer...to put it lightly...he played all the way through college...we had to name him something that had to do with golf. :) The pictures below are pictures of Ely's first vet visit. Yes...I know....we took pictures at the office. LOL
These next few pictures are snapshots as he grew...
He HATES to wear clothes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Then Ely turned 1!! WOW WOW WOW~ He was in a litter of 10 puppies, Mark's Aunt and Uncle had a b-day party and invited all 10 puppies a year later! It was crazy...all 10 were there! It was so neat to see every puppy all grown up!
Ely is about 100 pounds and still thinks he is a lap dog. He still sleeps between us everynight and is extremely protective of me. Then in 2008 Mark and I went insane for a short period of time...and bought another dog. A Standard Poodle...Logan Birch. Mark is currently in school at Logan College of Chiropractic and we used a special street name as his middle name. :)
As a good mom, I took pictures of Ely's first vet appt. so it's only fair if I take them at Logans...
Ely and Logan are BEST buds. Logan adores Ely and follows him everywhere! I don't know what they would do without eachother...I don't know what we would do without them! Enjoy the rest of the pictures....Happy Friday!
