This post is only going to be two words



Saturday night my papa passed away. It has been very difficult to deal with. My family is flying in from California on Thursday morning and the wake is Thursday and the Funeral is Friday. He was the best and I can not even put into words how great he was. He will be missed and I love him so much.

On October 30th Murphy and me found out that we are expecting our first baby! Right now our estimated due date is July 9th! We are so excited and nervous, I have never seen Murphy so excited in his life! Here is how I found out I was pregnant.

I was laying in bed with the worst pains in my stomach so I got up and took a bath; Murphy started the heating pad for me. I got back into bed with the heating pad and feel asleep for about an hour. Murphy is finally out of the house and I get up and I'm peeing on the stick like it's my job. I look at the test, which is one of those strips that you order online. I see a line and my body starts shaking! I then drive like a maniac to cvs, I was going down a street that had construction going on and they told me I couldn't go down I told them to screw and kept on driving. I get to cvs I am looking all nasty in my sweats and sweatshirt and I am walking to the counter shaking and carrying 5 types of tests. The lady gives me the weird eye and I bolt out of the store.

I get home and take about 5 tests. They all have faint lines but the digital says pregnant!
I panic. I have no idea what to do because I am home alone! I pulled myself together, put the test in my purse, and drove to Murphy’s work. The whole time I am driving I am pulling it out and looking at it. Meanwhile I get to work (me and Murph work together) I have to put my bag through a metal detector because we work at a jail and I am freaking out that they can see it on the screen. I walk into Murphy's office and the first thing he says is who let you in with your pocket book Jenn? You know you can't bring those in! I told him I bribed the guy working the metal detector because we were in the same academy together and I would kill him if he didn't let me bring it in. So we sit down and are eating some soup and just talking, and I am shaking like a cold chichihua. Then I take it out of my bag put it on his desk and ask him when we should tell our parents. He flips out and starts getting teary eyes (and blames it on his soup) and just keeps saying how happy he is. We finish our lunch and I have to head home to get ready for work. Murph must have called me about 20 times in 2 hours to check up on me.

At work, I'm not working. I keep looking at the test. I probably looked at it every minute of every hour. I just wanted to take the test out and wave it in the air and show everyone but I was good and controlled myself. Holy crap I am going to be a mother!


We love Halloween. We used to live in Salem MA and it is crazy there. The whole month of October is packet with tourists. We still cover our house with pumpkins and decorations and dress up. We even dress up the dogs for when the kids come trick or treating. The kids love it!

Wow I am a bad blogger

Ok I will try to update you on everything that has been going on lately. October 18th was our one year anniversary. We went up to North Conway for 3 nights and stayed in a cute B&B. Here are some pictures, we did alot of hiking and walking around. It was so peaceful and beautiful up there this time of year. We had a great time!
