What have we been doing??

Well I have not been a good blogger but also don't feel like there is much to blog about these days.  We have been doing a lot I just forget to blog about it.  So let me sum up the beginning of 2013!

1.  We rung in the New Year with some of our closest friends.  I only got a few pictures from the night.  I have been bad about taking pictures!  But we had fun ringing in 2013.  It's going to be a great year!  My niece will be here within the week, Matt and I will become parents, 2 of our favorite couples will be getting married and many more adventures to come!

 Happy 2013!

1.  I am now 25 weeks pregnant and loving it!  I feel Hunter move a lot more and it is pretty cool.  Matt finally felt him the other night and he tells people that they high five a few times!  It's pretty cute to see him so excited and ready to be a dad.  Here is a pic at 25 weeks, it's not very good but I also am not good at taking the pictures.  He is growing that is for sure!!

25 weeks!

3.  Matt spent the last week in Vegas at Shot Show meeting some of our favorite Swampers!  He had such a great time and I know it was a trip he will remember for ever.  He went with his dad and spent 3 days looking at guns, ammo, hunting stuff and more.  It was a gun man dreams!  I am sure he will go back again.  Only disappointment was that he was not able to meet the Duck Dynasty crew.

Bruce!  Just as great of a guy in person Matt says.

Jay Paul and RJ.  Jay Paul is my favorite so Matt got a autographed picture for me!

4.  While Matt was hanging out with the Swampers I was at home painting our living area.  Since we moved in I have been talking about painting.  Our ceiling and walls were the same color and that drove me crazy for some reason.  So finally we got around to painting the living area and hallways.  It's a grey beige color and I will post pics once the decor is all up.  From the pictures you probably wont' be able to tell much difference but we can tell a change.  Next up-Hunter's room!

The cats were such great helpers!

I hope all is well with everyone and that 2013 is shaping up to be one of your best years yet!

It's a....

Yes, this post is a little late but better late than never right. 
A few weeks ago we have a Tacky Sweater/Gender Reveal Party to reveal what Baby Schafer was going to be.  I was pretty excited to find out and tell our friends and family.  Matt and I thought all along that we would find out with everyone else but after some thinking we decided that we wanted to know before the others so that it was something special with just the 2 of us.  So we opened the envelope before we dropped it off at the bakery.  I cried and Matt was so overjoyed!  His face lit up and it made it all worth it.

Since Matt and I already know we decided to let Matt's parents open the cupcake to reveal to everyone else.  They were so excited when they saw the blue icing!  It was so fun to find out with our friends that we are going to have a little boy.  Pat (my father-in-law) actually ate a smaller cupcake before the party started and did not realize the icing inside was blue!  It was so funny once he realized what he had done.  It all worked out because we still had a great reveal and a wonderful party. 

 I had already called my parents and sister on Friday after we found out to let them know.  It was a special time for all of us!
Opening the cupcake!
Pat so excited for Matt to be a dad to a little boy!

Kerry brought a gift that was filled with some of Matt's old clothes and shoes!

He had to wear his old hat again.  Kinda small now :)

So we will welcome Hunter Joseph Schafer sometime in May!
