Chris and I drove up to Dallas last week to go to a wedding and visit with friends and family. It was a successful trip! Other than the drive, we had a blast and got to see almost everyone we wanted to! Jason and Jouleen's wedding was beautiful. We are so thrilled that you are husband and wife. My sister, sister-in-law, and best friend threw me a baby shower where I got to see tons of friends and family and our little guy (did I mention we're having a BOY!!) got some great stuff for his new life! We are making a Superman themed nursery (which we already painted his room and are going to hang the awesome curtains today... then we'll post pictures) that Chris, his dad and I are super pumped about! Our last night in town we had a fun Sushi Loco get together and scarfed down some delicious food and had fun spending our last night in Dallas as non-parents with our friends. Yes, that's right... the next time we come to Dallas we will be bringing our son with us. I can't believe I am 5 months pregnant! Time has flown by so fast. Chris and I can't help but talk about how much we can't wait for his arrival and how we hope to raise him to love Jesus and us.
The San Antonio Reyes' came in town for the showers. It was so much fun. I have the best friggin family ever. We tried to spend a lot of time with them. Jacob and Abby are getting so BIG!! They are 2 of the most beautiful, adorable children EVER! Abby is so sweet and loves her little brother and talks all the time. Jacob is a little wiggle worm and I see him as a drummer in the near future. Before Matthew had to go back to SA for work, my sister's friend took some pictures of our family (minus Scott... he currently resides in Colrado and won't be home for who knows how long). So here they are... like I said, Abby is so beautiful and Jacob is so stinking adorable!!

Two months is too long...

2 months is a long time to go without posting, so I apologize. Things have been busy around the Munselle household. In September Chris left for a month to be on the Keith Urban tour as the AV tech. I'm sure if any of you read my news feeds on Facebook, you would know how miserable I was without him. 30 days is a long time for someone to be gone... especially if your wife is pregnant. My emotions did not fare well without him here. After the first week we started Skyping and the first few times I cried like a baby. Seriously, it was ridiculous. I honestly could not help it. After that it got better, no more crying! I had a few friends spend the night with me to help with the loneliness, but the last week I could not take it any more and took my home group leaders up on their offer and stayed with them. It was so incredibly nice of them to offer up their home to me and feed me and take care of me, which they did really well. AND it made the last 7 days go by so much faster. Before I knew it he was home.
He had a good time on the road and made a few good friends, met some really nice people, and made great connections. Oh, and did I mention he stood next to Nicole Kidman at several of the shows?! I was a little jealous. He affirmed that she is just as beautiful (and tall) in person as she is on screen. We also decided that he would NEVER leave for that long again. I cannot imagine going through that again. I don't understand how people do that for years and years. It was really hard. I missed everything about him. And I got a glimpse at what my life would be like without him and I hated it. He is my everything, the one I love with all my being. I am so lucky to have him as my husband and the father of my soon to be child!
