The BIG Test

Okay, so I didn't reveal the news lastnight because I didn't want to get overly excited and set myself up for a possible dissapointment but today I feel much better about revealing-Jenna AND Blake had their sleep study lastnight!!

Needless to say, we have a couple of last minute things to do......cutting it short. More later.
