Parties, Parties, and more Parties!

It's still several days until Christmas and we have already been to 3 Christmas parties. We are worn out. Not only from the late nights, but from coordinating babysitting! It's been fun though. What a treat to be able to spend quality time eating and talking with good friends. All of the parties have been different in their own way. With our Home Team, some of us went bowling after dinner. We had such a good time! It has been forever since we've gone bowling. It wasn't the best workout for my hernia, but the granny roll proved to get just as many pins down as my regular throw. I've uploaded my pictures for all to enjoy.
I hope you are enjoying the holiday season as much as we are!! The tree is up, the wreaths are hung, and we even put lights on the back patio doors. Noah has only pulled the tree down once, so we're hoping that's all. He is very curious about the ornaments, and has had many trips to timeout for pulling on them. Such a beautiful temptation! He loves it when it's plugged in and lit up.

We have already been to see Santa! Noah didn't know what to think, but it was a better experience than last year. We don't expect perfection, but atleast a good laugh for the parents when we plan this trip! A picture perfect memory. He's starting to understand Santa and today he said Santa was going to bring him toys and a trailer truck. Big dreams this boy has! Hope and Hannah Chayse say they want Santa to bring them candy! I like their thinking.

Enjoy the Season!

It's December and Snowing Outside!

I love the snow! LOVE IT! It brings back awesome memories...begging to go sledding (even into my college years!), hot chocolate, popcorn, snow angels, snow wars, and most recently sharing it with Noah. As I get older, it's easier to worry about snow and the dangers, but I try to let the little girl in me still get giddy with delight when I see it falling from the sky!
Well, as of yesterday, Nathan and I have been together (started dating) for 7 years. What a long time! Are we really that old? He never fails to remind me that I am, and I guess I am starting to feel it! Life catches up with you...work, kids, mortgage, utilities, etc. Where did the time go and how did I turn into an adult? I wouldn't trade it! I love my life and am so blessed. I have the man of my dreams and I still love spending every moment possible with him. He is such a great husband and father. Sorry for the gush- but who really reads this anyway! It's just a cool online journal for me and I guess I don't really care if anyone reads it or not. I love being able to share the moments of life with others, funny or not. We will be adding more video soon. I'm so glad so many of you got to watch the last one. Noah is a trip. You will not believe the things he comes up with.
I started writing the blog 2 days ago and I never seem to be able to sit down and finish it. So, I'll add the latest news. London Royalty was born today. She's a little cutie with lots of dark hair. Welcome London!
I'm 27 weeks pregnant now and into my 3rd trimester. March seems so far away, but 3 months is nothing! I really should start working on her room. She already has more clothes than she needs, but every little girl should have a closet full, right? And she better have hair, because she's stocked up on hair accessories! Thank you KK.
Hope you enjoy the snow like I do. Next time, just remember how beautiful it is before you start fussing about having to drive in it.
