To answer the question that has come to just about every one's mind- NO, I am not pregnant! :) But I do have some UBER exciting news to share with everyone!
As many of you know, Cole has worked as an off-shore helicopter pilot in the Gulf of Mexico for the past three years. His career was going very well there, and with the exception of having to spend two weeks a month away from home, he was really enjoying his job.
Then came October 18, 2011. The day that rocked our world, and not in a good way. That was the day that we found out that Ava was an angel. With the diagnosis, and the prognosis of AS, along with the issues we will likely face in the near future like seizures, Cole decided almost immediately to begin searching diligently for a job closer to home. I had been praying that, when the time was right, he would be able to have a job closer to home anyway. But we really kicked those prayers into high gear after that day!
Well, the Lord has just opened door after door, and placed people in our path that have turned out to be instrumental in our journey. I am so thankful for those people, and I am SO excited, thankful, and proud to announce that my husband is now....
|Round one of the water!|
|Round three (notice the hose being brought out!)|
|Finale! He was SOAKED!!!! They got him good!|
|Pausing for his applause and speech! Bless his heart, he was so embarrassed!|
|I think this was at the point his boss was congratulating him and welcoming him to the team.|
|And this was the point where his boss mentioned that I was in on it since yesterday...|
|FYI: Flight suits weigh about 100lbs when soaking wet.|
|He gave me a big soppy hug...|
|Then he gave Ava one! Of course, she enjoyed "Wet Daddy" more than me! HAHA!|
