BC: The End
FC: The Martins 2010
3: We had a couple of big snow storms the winter of 2010. We got snowed in at mom and dad one time with Shawn and Marty. Brent had to plow at the Turkey Hills different times. I helped Brent shovel our driveway some, but never overdid it as I was pregnant.
5: In January we went on vacation to Florida. The first couple of days we stayed at a motel in Orlando. We had a wonderful time walking around, going out to eat, and not doing much of anything. One time while walking a guy wanted to take us on a ride in his bike cart. We didn't know if he could make, but he did. We spent a day at Epcot which was fun.
7: We had a fun day 'visiting' different countries. Brent enjoyed going on the different rides there in future world. We did lots of walking which tired me out. While watching a boring show of America, I slept and then was good to go again. Of course we had to see "Honey I Shrunk the Audience'. It was a perfect day- sunny and a little chilly.
10: Brent and I did our own things as well. Biking, shopping, to the beach (but it was cool), and one evening we went to look at Mike Witmer's house and the other owner was there. We ended up staying the entire evening playing a game. | The next few days we spent with my grandparents. We had a good time with them. They enjoyed showing us around. One day we went to estate sales. Another day we went away with my grandparents and Norman and Minerva. We went to the Red Barn, out to eat, and then drove around looking at different things. | shuffle board
11: Baby is coming... The evening of March 3rd my contractions started. I didn't think it was the real thing because my due date wasn't until the 27th. I had a doctors appointment in the morning and he said I need to be at the hospital by noon. Brent was at work and couldn't get a hold of him for a while. I called at the office to get the number of one of the guys he was working with. He came home and we packed up and headed for the hospital to wait for our little boy.
12: It's a Boy! William Hunter Martin March 5, 2010 at 12:11 am weighing 7 lb. 5 oz measuring 19.5 in.
13: We were so excited to meet Wiliam. We couldn't get enough of him. He was perfect and beautiful. We couldn't believe he was actaully here and that he was ours. In the morning we had fun calling family and suprising them since he was early. | Proud Parents

74: We had a little Christmas Party at our house with Donita & CJ, Jaired & Debbie, and Curt & Muchele. The babies exchanged books. William thought he needed all the gifts and the others were too little to get them back. That won't always be the case.
