coming soon

The personal blog has been revived! It is funny to go back and look at our posts from 2 years ago. Although our blog name and site has changed, I decided to continue on with what we started before our wedding. I hope to not only post about the upcoming arrival of our babies but our travels, projects around here, and fun things I come across on the internet!

Well as most of you know, Corey and I are expecting twins! We recently found out that we're going to welcome a little girl and a little boy into our family! The ultrasound technician told us that we'd be TOO lucky if that is what we got and sure enough it is!

Corey and I have mulled over names since we found out that we were expecting and if we're being honest, even before that! It was a very easy process for us with little arguing except for middles names. That was quite difficult for us to decide and agree upon. Once we knew, Corey wanted to share with our parents and his grandparents in a special way. He asked me to create a card - we included an ultrasound picture of the two babies (the best we have to date) and a note from them revealing their names.

Below is the card that we sent to my parents!!



We will be naming our little girl Presley Jo and our little boy Cullen Grey. We wanted to choose names that were unique. Having taught for 5 years, my choices for a bit limited! :) We chose Jo for her middle name because it is a name (Joe) that has been in Corey's family for 3 generations - that I know of.

And there you have it ladies and gentlemen - Until next time!

Cute names! I am the same way about unique names...being a teacher pretty much ruins every name, so you've got to be original! :) I'm going to follow your blog. Even though I've only met you once or twice, I feel like I know you through Kat, Doy, and FB! Congrats! (Oh, and my third daughter is going to have my husband's middle name, too- James. I love boy names for girls!)

I love Cullen Grey and Presley Jo!!! What wonderful names and oh to know that the very hairs of their heads are numbered. Rejoicing with you and Corey! Sending up praise to God above for your precious blessings. May they recognize Him as Lord and Savior and bring glory to His kingdom in their lifetimes. In Jesus name, I pray for your little ones by name...Amen. Love you Brittani Louise!

Love the names you chose!!! Presley is a family name on my dad's side (last name) and I've always thought that would make a cute name for a little girl.
