February 2, 2003

Well, it's been a really, really long time since we last updated you all on what's going on in our lives. There's been quite a few.

First of all, for those of you keeping up on our kitchen remodel, we are mostly done. We still have some trim work to do and some touch-ups. It is wonderful to have a working kitchen again with lots of counter space. We love how it turned out, but are a little burnt out on remodeling now (that's why the trim work hasn't been finished yet). Take a look at the pictures to see the dramatic change!

Second, we'd like to announce that we are expecting a baby on August 7th. We found out at the beginning of December and surprised our families with the news on New Years. So far Miekka hasn't been sick and she isn't really showing much yet, but the next few weeks will probably change that. We are extremely excited and extremely nervous at the same time. We often wonder what we've gotten ourselves into, but there's no turning back now. The Ultra-sound picture was taken when the baby was 8 weeks old and about an inch long. It's the whitish blob at the bottom of the dark circle. Last week we went to the doctor and were able to hear the baby's heartbeat, it was kind of surreal. The doctor said it sounded like a girl. I'm not really sure how that factors in, but hopefully we'll be able to find out what it is in 8 weeks or so. We'll be sure to keep you all updated.

Third, James only has a class and a half left before he graduates and we are counting down the days. He is frustrated with the class he's in right now, because it is an introduction to the Internet, which of course he already knows. He tried to get the University to waive it, but they wouldn't so he's stuck. Luckily he's almost free.

Other than those three major things, not much else has happened. We have just been taking it easy since the rush of the holidays. Starting this week, we should be back on our weekly letter writing schedule, so look for another letter from us next week.

We love you all.
James and Miekka Lance
