Went As 2 Left As 3

At this point I am sure that many of you know...Landen Hugh East is here. I am definitely crossed till at the point of extreme excitement and also a little bit scared. Excited that God has blessed Lyndsey and myself with the opportunity to be parents, but at the same time somewhat scared of that responsibility. Scared because I know that a time will come that he will hurt or feel pain and there will be nothing that I can do. I look forward to this journey knowing that it will bring my closer both to my God and to Lyns.
Lyns was such a trooper. I am blessed to have such an incredible wife and Landen is blessed to have such an amazing mother.
I think that the coolest part in all this is that Landen coming has been such a great worship experience. It is hard for me to grasp after being a part of this how someone cant see that we were fearfully and wonderfully made by a creative and loving God. During the whole process of labor and the c-section I don't know if i have ever cried out to God more. So God thanks for this and thanks for the many times that will come that you will use my family to draw me closer to You.

Christmas Music

Christmas music has begun to grace the radio stations. I must admit and some may consider me a dork for this one, but I love Christmas music. I have already began to listen to some. So I have decide to share with you my top five Christmas songs in no particular order. Here they are:

1. This Christmas by Chris Brown
2. O Holy Night by N-Sync
3. 12 Days of Christmas by Relient K
4. Silent Night by Mariah Carey
5. Feliz Navidad by David Crowder

Too Long

It has been a while ... since my last post. To all who follow my blog, which I am sure there are many, I apologize for the lack of posting. So here is a catch up of all that has been going on since my last post. I did successfully put together all of the baby furniture. I only had two extra parts left (sorry Landen). My father in law got all the trim and molding up in the baby room. We got over 700 diapers from the baby shower. I hear that it wont last that long. We also had our Be Real weekend with the students. Look for video coming soon. So there is a quick recap. I'll keep up a little better.

Baby Furniture

The time has finally come for baby furniture to get put together. I am going to pick up a crib, 3 drawer dresser, and a 5 drawer/changing table dresser. So please pray for me. I am sort of handy, but I have this patience frustration thing that can take over some times. If I need any help I'll call you.

Another College Post

Guys college dorm is all that needs to be said! While on our visit to my old stomping grounds, we stayed in the guys dorm. Now I will be honest and admit that staying in the dorms while I was in college was one of the best parts of college. I mean you truly never know what may happen in the dorm. So here is my point while staying there over this past weekend, it hit me, "was I really like this when I was in college?" With this question came many more like: "why in the world did my wife marry me, how did I graduate, and did I really use those bathrooms?" So to all who stayed in a dorm through college, I challenge you to take a trip back to your old stomping grounds. You never know how much you have changed until you see how much you have changed. (wow that is deep, I'll give that one away for free)
