State Champs!!!!

Well, the Rams pulled off another State Championship yesterday at Ford Field!!! Brogan finished his Ram football career on the best possible note, and we are so proud of him for all his hard work and accomplishments (including Second Team All-State, All-Conference, and making the Grand Rapids Press Dream Team, just to name a few). The Rams and their coaches should all be very proud and satisfied with a tremendous season. GO RAMS!!

Now.....bring on basketball season!!

Barney Bibler Update!!

Today Austin and I went to our first actual appointment with my wonderful OB/GYN, Dr. Pete (I know there are several of us Dr. Pete fans out there!). He gladly answered all of my 27 questions, and after reviewing my three previous ultrasounds, he bumped my due date back from June 16 to June 20. No big deal to us! Also, for an "early Thanksgiving present" to us (and this is why I love Dr. Pete!), he surprised us with the heart tone doppler. :) We heard Barney's little heart just beatin' away! It was so cool!

So there it is...a new due date, two beating hearts in one body, and two very happy parents-to-be. :)

We love you Barney Bibler!

Rams off to the Semi-Finals!!!

Today Rockford beat Heartland 24-8 in a good but COLD football game!! Brogan (#2) played great, as always. :) And Brogan's best friend Jordan (who is #21 and very much like another little brother to Austin and I) scored ALL THREE TOUCHDOWNS!!!!!

Next week the Rams (and us Ram fans) are headed to a 10:30a.m. game at Michigan State University for the semi-finals!! After that win, it's off to Ford Field, baby! GO RAMS!

Barney's Baby Bump popped this week. At just under 10 weeks, I have definitely developed a belly! Barney is definitely growing like a weed in there! Can't wait to see how big it'll be in 10 more weeks....or maybe I can wait...:)

Happy 80th Birthday Grandma!!

Tonight we celebrated Grandma Snellink's 80th birthday!! Of course, birthday celebrations in this family now consist of horrible singing, great food, and ultimately...bad gas. :)

Happy birthday, Grandma! We love you!!

Quick Clarification...

While we think Barney Bibler has the perfect ring to it, we are definitely NOT going to name our baby Barney. Not that there is anyting wrong with the name Barney, but it's just a temporary name for out fetus before we have an actual infant. :) So you will continue to hear the name Barney Bibler for months to come, but just remember, it's only temporary!!

Meet Barney Bibler

We got to see Barney and his/her speedy little heart today! We think right now Barney looks a lot like a Ram, but we love Barney anyway! :) What an incredible experience for us both... :)

You Might Think I'm Crazy...

...but I already know I am! Actually, those who know me best know that Christmas is my FAVORITE time of year, and I feel it's never too early to start celebrating it!! In fact, it's only 53 days away from today, and that's just not enough time to enjoy this fabulous time of year!! It has taken me all that I have to wait until Halloween was done to change my music/background to CHRISTMAS!! So, if you are a Christmas fanatic like myself, enjoy!! If not...enjoy anyway!! :)
