Thanksgiving 2012


Well, we had a very quiet Thanksgiving this year...it was just our little family.  We were very thankful to be able to spend the day together playing by the fire, cooking YUMMY food and not have to rush off somewhere or get our house all fixed for company.  We stayed in our pajamas all day...yes, we even ate our dinner in our pajamas.  We did take out our nice dishes and flatware, but decided that we just didn't want to get all dressed up.  It was perfect for our little family.  Chris cooked a beautiful...and tasty turkey.  I did all the sides--green bean casserole, sweet potato casserole, mashed potatoes, stuffing and rolls.  The amazing thing of the night was how much Kyrie ate!!!  Chris and I decided that she ate more than everyone else when you consider her age and her size.  I am telling you, this girl can eat!!! 

We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving...and now let the CHRISTmas season begin!

9 weeks


Well, we have been growing buddies for 9 weeks now and my waist is already showing it.  The last week or so has been kind of rough for Mommy....I am very tired...all.the.time....and have been so nauseous...all.the.time.  Whoever came up with the word morning sickness doesn't have a clue...I think I would name it morning, noon and night sickness...or MNN for short.  When I have my moments of being frustrated with feeling yucky all the time, I just remember that this MNN sickness means that you are growing and doing what you need to do.  We go to the doctor on Monday, and I can't wait to hear your heartbeat for the first time...that sound never gets old...no matter what number child you are.  After our appointment, we will call our siblings and let them know that they are going to be an aunt and uncle again and we will let your siblings know...it is a careful balance of not telling them too soon...we don't want them to spill the beans! Laughing  Then we will let our church family know on Sunday.  It has been super hard hiding my growing waist line...thankful for over-sized sweaters and the fact that it has been cold enough to wear them! Well, know that we are excited and can't wait to meet you and to see who God is creating you to be.
