Merry Christmas...Love, The Stonekings, Family of Four

This Christmas, we have much to celebrate. If you read the title of this post, you might be inquiring if I mistyped something or if you need to read ahead to let me explain...
Yes, you heard it right my friends, Jeff, Caroline, and I are excited to announce we are expecting...our little family is growing again! I have been so anxious to share this special surprise for what feels like so long, yet wanted to wait until we were in our 2nd trimester before spilling the beans to the public...and of course, that coincided with Christmas so we thought it would be fun to announce during this very special time when we all can't help but think about what's most important to us, and what truly matters most in life.
To say that this was a little surprise would be a total understatement, but I am constantly reminded that life isn't always in my hands, and that God has a plan all His own, and I am comforted by knowing He is in control. I know He wouldn't give us something we couldn't handle and we are overjoyed about welcoming another child into this world...we feel extremely blessed about this new life and are happy to share our news with everyone! Looks like 2013 is going to be another BIG year in the Stoneking house...more to come so stay tuned!

From the bottom of our hearts, Merry Christmas to each and every one of you. I hope you have a fantastic holiday celebrating with those you hold dearest and love the most. Cheers and love to all!
