Baby Bumps

Jessica is a good family friend of ours. We grew up together and have many memories playing on the golf course and having family gatherings at Fun House pizza. She is having a baby at the end of March so our due dates are two months apart. She lives in California so I was glad I got to see her this weekend at her baby shower. We just had to pose with our baby bumps together. Love you Jess! You look so cute and we can't wait to meet the little guy!

Christmas is Coming!!!

While I was out shopping today the Santa Bus came through our neighborhood. Ben said she was really excited to see him but of course didn't talk to him and was timid when she saw him. She LOVED talking about seeing him after and especially liked the candy cane and teddy bear. We will see how our santa visit is at Bass Pro this year. Last year she was not a fan at all. We will see!

Christmas Tree is up and lights are on the house. Ben worked so hard on the roof to get the lights perfect. It looks great! :) I absolutely LOVE this time of year!!! We look forward to this day every year because we play Christmas music really loud and put up Christmas decorations all day long. It is so fun! Ben and I are both like little kids!

Happy Thanksgiving

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year. We spent the morning with the Richeson family and the afternoon with my side of the family. We are so thankful to have both of our families here so we can always share in this wonderful holiday with both of them. We really cherish these holidays together and know how lucky we really are.
We hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving!!

My Little Worker

Alivia has become quite the little worker. Often times she is coloring and practicing writing her name instead of playing with her toys. She still LOVES playing with baby dolls and her new obsession is princesses or fairies. I had to take this snapshot of her working so hard to write her name. It is so cute!! My little girl is growing up so fast!

I have really been missing blogging lately but I have been bogged down with my research class and have been pretty sick. My dr. gave me zofran to help with the sickness and it has helped a bit. I am hoping since I am almost 13 weeks that the sickness is going to be over soon. It is definitely all worth it though. I wasn't even nauseous with Alivia so with this pregnancy being a lot different I am definitely calling boy!! ha! I have also been having really weird dreams this time. I have had numerous dreams that I am having twin boys. It is pretty crazy how real the dreams seem. Our sonogram is scheduled the first week of January so I guess we will have to wait until then. We will see!! Crossing my fingers for feeling good soon! Also, yesterday was my last research class and I have a break until January with no classes! YIPEE! I am really looking forward to the relaxation and time with family and friends. :)

Alivia is going to be a big sister!! The due date is May 28th! :) We are so excited! Alivia is already planning out everything she is going to do for her "little sister" (she is determined it is a girl). She has even kissed my stomach already. It is too cute. I can't wait to see her in action with the baby.  LOVE HER!
