On January 3, 2011, Russell and I received some wonderful news.  We told Colleen and let her share it with the world!!

Yes, you heard that right...Colleen is going to be a BIG SISTER!!!  Russell and I have been wanting a second child for a while now and after dealing with a couple of medical issues along the way, God has blessed us!  We are all super excited about it.  I am 7.5 weeks along and due around August 24, 2011.  Please check back for more details as we get them.  The next doctor's appointment is scheduled for February 4.

Also, for fun, I have placed a poll on the left hand side of the blog so you can take a guess at what the gender of the baby will be.  Colleen says she is going to have a baby sister and Russell says it is a boy!!  I can tell  you that it has been confirmed that there is just ONE baby!  Have fun and stay tuned!

Christmas Time 2010

So, I know it's been a little while since my last post...but it has been a busy time for the Payne household!  We have had Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, and some other special news I will share a little later!!  Let's talk about Christmas!  Colleen had a fantastic Christmas.  She got all kinds of good stuff, not just from Santa, but from all the family!

Below is a montage of Christmas pictures!  ENJOY!
