false alarm

so, yeah. i don't know if i should be telling this, because it is pretty embarrassing...i just feel the need to update everyone on the goings on of our life. and this is what has been happening.
so, last night, i had contractions off and on throughout the night. mind you, i haven't had any braxton hicks until today. so, ben and i got ready, went to church, and timed contractions all through church. they went from 8:30 - 5:30 (which is when we went to the hospital) going from 30 minutes apart to 3 minutes apart. well, i probably had 2 contractions when we walked into the doors to the hospital and that was IT!!! no more! zilch! nada! it was SO annoying! i felt like an idiot. they hooked us (me and dillon) up to the monitors and so it was pretty fun hearing dillon's heartbeat for an extended period of time. anyway, so, if anyone tells you that i went to the hospital, they're right, but then you can tell them it was nothing.

anyway, on other notes, everything is going very well. we haven't taken any recent pictures of me to post because, let's just face it, i'm pretty large AND our camera is packed in the hospital bags. i do only have one more week of work, though, which i'm VERY excited about :). we also are finishing up getting ready for dillon to get here. that's pretty much what our days consist and getting ready for dillon. it's good times! also, ben is probably going to start some free lance work in the near future. if you hear of anyone who needs some graphic design work, let him know. we would greatly appreciate the business...however, there's no compensation for a referral...yet ;). we also had the privelege of having TWO thanksgiving dinners this year (not including work dinners). our first one was at the myatt's house. the tankersleys were in town all last week. we had SUCH a great time with them! so, we had both sides of the family in on last saturday (before thanksgiving). then, we went to the denker's house on thanksgiving day! that is truly our home away from home! we had such a great time with our "family" there, and we all decided that it was one of the best thanksgivings ever. we loved it.
i guess that's about it! we love you all! thanks for all your prayers! and we will definitely keep you posted!!

i love our friends

so, i'm just realizing how good ben and i really have it. i've known that we've been really blessed, but i mean, we have the BEST friends in the WORLD!!! we have been blessed with having almost 3 baby showers...the 3rd one is sunday...and we still have 2 more to go! i LOVE our friends! and, as many of you know, most of my friends from college (ok all of them) live in different states. these are the girls that were my bridesmaids and who i know we will be life long friends with. you girls have been the awesomest people since we found out we were pregnant! you always ask about us and how the little guy is doing and how i'm feeling. anyway, i just wanted everyone to know how blessed we really are and how much i really do love our friends. our "other group" of friends are guys from Christ Community. (follow the link on the places to roam to see our church and hear some great teaching). these are the men that were ben's groomsmen in our wedding and over the past two years, i have had the privelege to know their wives and call them BFF as well ;). the Lord has truly blessed us with amazing people in our life. i am so thankful for how each of you has blessed the williams family over the past two years. and, if you read this, you know that you're one of those people that we love ;). i just wanted to express my gratitude for our friends and praise the Lord for bringing people like you into our lives. the peace of Christ be with you all today.

mud pies, beetles, and fire trucks

well, i'm at 34 weeks and 1 day. this little guy is going to be here before we know it. and ben and i really are just very excited about seeing him. i think that we're ready to just know him, and i'm kinda just ready to have my body back to normal...not with a huge baby in my belly :). anyway, we also have dillon's room painted completed. well, i guess it's not completely done, but all we have left is some doors and trim around the doors to be painted. YEA!!! we're SO ready!

on other notes, there's not a LOT going on. i think that some of you knew about kirby's film and project that ben was supposed to work on. the plans have changed a little bit and we're actually excited about what's going to happen is the atkins and the williamsons are going to go to spain in january. the company has decided to have kirby and julian and several others (from spain) to do the pre-production in spain. basically the company is not willing to move the williams (us) to spain, so we can't go. BUT kirby is still going to use ben in the pre-production. only he will be able to work from home, which dillon and i are very excited about. we are actually pretty excited about all of this and have seen how God has worked and answered prayers even though they have not been answered how we thought they would be. there's a lot of specifics to that i could explain and i will expalin if you want to know, but it's way too much to type. so, you can just call if you want to know ;). everything is going well and we are very excited about what Christ is doing in our life. thanks for praying for dillon, the film, and for us. please keep doing so. we love you all!
