Tis The Season......
We had many attempts this year at the "perfect" Christmas family picture and it just didn't happen. Ellie was totally into it, but Anna would not sit still for a minute and then on the second attempt she wouldn't let go of her blankie so I could only get her from her neck up! I got some good individual ones, but not to many family ones. I still like our cards as we used some other pictures from earlier in the year. I can't even imagine with three little ones next year!
I am now 16 weeks and just went to the doctor this past week. The apptmt. went great and I am feeling good. I thought I would have gained at least 4 pounds or so, but only 1/2 pound. I think it was a good day! I have been enjoying my Christmas food to say the least. We've had lots of fun parties to go to and they are all over with now. We are staying in town for Christmas Eve service at Watermark and then we are off for a few days to my grandpa's house. We are looking forward to it! I am so glad we are not flying anywhere this year. I am exhausted just thinking about it and our fun Christmas present this year is we got a mini-van! I am so excited and love it. Our pilot would not hold 3 car seats and the van is perfect. We looked for a long time and finally found a great deal and what we wanted. We went with the Honda Odyssey. It has so many mom features that make life so much easier. My favorite has to be the automatic sliding doors where all I have to do is push a button. I was also able to fit my whole high school girls small group in it tonight which was nice. Anyways, we have a fun week ahead and I am excited to celebrate Christmas with the girls. Ellie sings Happy Birthday Jesus so cute. I will post it on video soon!
