Catching up...








I finally caught a little bit of Christmas spirit and decided to order cards (and had to pay for expedited processing and shipping...I guess that's what I get for waiting for the last minute), actually send the cards out (along with the moving announcements I've had since March), start Christmas shopping, wrap presents (okay, Ben did this part since I spent 3 1/2 hours putting together a play kitchen), and pretend like I'm excited for Christmas. Needless to say, I've been a crazy person trying to get everything done with less than a week until the 25th. Somebody please remind me next year not to wait until the middle of December to start any of these things! 

Morning sickness is kicking my rear, so that might be one of the reasons I've been so lacking in Christmas cheer. I'm now 11 weeks and everything is going well--Grayson is so excited and tells anybody and everybody that mommy has a baby in her tummy. :) He insists that it's a sister, so we'll see in a few more weeks. 

I'll be back next week with lots of new pictures of the kiddos. In the meantime, here are a few taken over the past week--Grayson and Emma Claire outside enjoying the nice weather (it's been 80 degrees here lately!), and our faux-Christmas morning yesterday when Santa delivered their kitchen a few days early. Merry Christmas, everybody!

So sorry you have been sick with this baby! :( Hopefully that will fade within the next few weeks. Love the kitchen. We got one for my boys last year. They use it all the time. My husband was not keen on getting one, but I insisted. LOL

Love the new pictures! The morning sickness can definitely put a hinder on the Christmas spirit. That is exactly how I felt the year I was pregnant. Luckily, my awesome SIL did the majority of my shopping for me! Hope you are feeling better soon!

Let me know how you like the kitchen. I was thinking about getting Molly the one I posted about yesterday, but I like yours too and can't ever decide.
I've had my "Just Moved" cards since June, so your not alone. I figure by this point they can just get our new address from the back of our Xmas cards. How lazy is that? Hope you feel better soon.

I hope your all day sickness eases up soon. Honestly, there is nothing worse than that. Love the kitchen. Rebecca and Christopher got one when they were EC and G's ages and Alexander plays with it now... all the time!!!!
