A look at our Christmas

We had a wonderful Christmas this year. We were able to spend time with everyone on both sides of our families. We always kick off Christmas on the 23rd at one of Trey's grandparent's house where ALL of the cousins get together, it is always so much fun. It was a little sad this year since it was the first Christmas without Daddy Frank but we all enjoyed the time together. On Christmas Eve we went to Trey's dad's house in the afternoon and then to church with his mom and her parents. After church we headed up to the lake to my parent's house. It was so much fun. My Grandpa, my mother's father, was here which made it extra special. He always lived in Chicago and is now in North Carolina so we don't get to see him very much. My brother and sister and their families were at the lake too which was so much fun. They each have two precious kids. I added some pictures from Christmas Day, I didn't take pictures any other time and my camera doesn't take the best pictures inside so sorry for the funny colors and blurriness. We had a great day, starting with the delicious breakfast my mom made for us to enjoy while opening all of the presents. After lunch, Trey and I-and the dogs of course- headed back to town to do Christmas with his mom, step-dad and grandparents on their side. It was a long couple of days but I wouldn't trade it for anything! I hope each of you had a Merry Christmas! (Oh yeah-we were able to have an ultrasound on Christmas Eve and heard the heartbeat, I have the pictures but can't get my scanner to work right now. I'll add them when I can)

it takes two days! Oh well!

I LOVE these next several pictures. Uncle Trey was teaching Hunter and Christopher how
to make spinner baits. Trey and Christopher both got new fishing poles for Christmas!

Sweet Sophie!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone! We are beginning our Christmas festivities in about 30 minutes and will be going full speed until late Christmas night. Tomorrow morning we head to the doctor again and are actually going to have the ultrasound! Once we get back from running around town and to the lake for the next couple of days I will post a picture of it, and hopefully pictures of the next several days. I'm going to have to get used to taking pictures all of the time with a little one on the way! I hope all of you have a very happy and safe Christmas!

Well, today was the day we went to the doctor...for what we thought was going to be an ultrasound. Poor Trey left work to come so he could be there to see the heartbeat for the first time, yet after and hour and a half we left after SCHEDULING an ultrasound for next week! I know it's not that big of a deal, I just thought that is what we were going for. Trey wouldn't have taken time off work to come today. Not only that, but I still don't really know what the point of the appointment today was, we didn't even do anything. Oh well! At least Trey was able to meet the doctor. We are now going Christmas Eve, so I guess it will be a nice Christmas gift.

Nothing New

I don't have much to write about. We haven't had too much going on lately. We did have a great trip to the beach over Thanksgiving weekend-of course I would have liked for it to last longer. I haven't been feeling too well this week. Hopefully that will get better soon. I have just read about several people who have tried the Psi bands and really thought they worked, I may get some tonight or tomorrow. Yesterday was probably the worst day that I have had; fortunately I had the day off so I laid around most of the day. Maybe if these "miracle bands" work I'll feel better at work.

We are just waiting to go to the doctor on the 15th. We are supposed to see the heartbeat at that appointment, I am so excited! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are enjoying my favorite time of the year, I love Christmas!
