Have you heard???

We are very excited to announce that I am 12 weeks pregnant! We are due July 15. I'm not really looking forward to being 9 months pregnant in the middle of the summer, but I guess it could be worse and be in August. We will find out what we are having in February (I think that's when it is). I have my next appointment this week. So far everything has been going good. Mary even has sympathy for me. Last week she told me she was sick and pulled her stool up to the kitchen sink. She started coughing and spitting into the sink, then she got a towel and wiped her eyes and mouth---she was imatating me!! That is what she saw me do for about 4 weeks 3-4 times a week in the mornings. The next morning, she pulled up her stool to the left sink and pretended, as I was really sick in the right sink! Saturday was the first time I had gotten sick at night. The heartburn has already started, so I'll be packing the Tums around everywhere I go. And I can't believe how much sooner I am in maternity clothes the second time around. Pants that I wore last week won't even zip up this week!

I met Pearson!

Yesterday we went to visit with a my friend Trina and her little boy Pearson. It was so good to see you guys!!! We hope you come back to Texas for another visit soon! :)

Welcome home Lainey!!!

Lainey Roubique came home yesterday morning. We went over to meet her in the afternoon. Mary LOVES her!! When we got home she started to cry and we asked her what was wrong and she said she wanted Lainey. This morning she saw the outfit Lainey gave her yesterday and she said "I love Lainey" See their BLOG for more info on her arrival.

Citizen of the Year

Congratulations to
Citizen of the Year
The Lion's Club honoured dad tonight at their annual Christmas party. It was a surprise to him. He said he figured it out a few minutes into the background speech (or as he called it the obituary) of the Citizen of the Year. We're proud of you Pa-Pa!! That's pretty cool!

Gingerbread House

Last night we had fun building and decorating a gingerbread house. Mary did really good and only attempted to eat the candy a few times. After about 30 minutes, she had enough and wondered off to do something else. So, I finished it up.

Visit with Santa

Mary was so excited to go and see Santa today. She ran up to him and said "Hi Santa!" While they were getting the camera ready he asked her what she wanted and she told him, "I want a pony." He understood what she said. Then he was ready for her to sit on his lap.

Mary's Open House Night

On Thursday night Mary's school had an Open House. The kids had been practicing several songs and dances. Mary was very much into doing her own thing. But it was still fun to watch.
