A White Christmas

We had a very white Christmas this year. It made me very happy and the day more enjoyable! It was a challenge for my sis, her hubby, and kids to make it here from Challis that day, but after a 4 and a 1/2 hour drive (normally a 2 and 1/2) they made it and all was grand. Here are some pics from that day. We took a drive up Buckskin, in the mountains, since Jason loves to rally in the Audi's when it snows. I have to admit he is a pretty dang good driver. We almost got stuck when we got to a road where the plowing had ended, but my race car driver husband got us out. Thank goodness we got out as our phones had the lovely message on the screen, "no service."

Later on Christmas day I brought the camera to my Mom's, took 3 pictures, and then the battery pack died and we didn't have the other one with us. :-( So, there is only one of my youngest nephew Jacob (he is getting so big), and me, my sister Laila, and our Mom. I know, I look so big and pregnant in the pic (already, yikes!!).

I hope everyone else's Christmas was as jolly and fun as ours! Happy New Year!!

Almost Christmas!

Well, Christmas is almost here and as usual I don't have all my Christmas shopping done. I know, there is only 3 days left. Don't worry, I'll make it. I always do.

We got another ultrasound of our baby boy and he looks great! They measured everything this time and all looks good. The little guy weighs 1 lb. 6 oz. right now. I can't believe in 16 weeks he'll be up to 6, 7, or 8 lbs! Or, whatever size baby I'll have. :-) I love these ultrasound pics of his profile, and he yawned during the ultrasound and she caught it in one of the pictures. I think the yawn pic is so cool!

Well, Merry Christmas everyone! I wish you all lots of joy, peace, and laughter. Here's to a happy and healthy 2009!

22

I am 22 weeks today! So fun and exciting to be past the half way mark. But, then again 18 weeks left sounds like a looooooooong time. I'm feeling the little guy kick quite a bit more now so that pleases me immensely. :-)

I recently found out 2009 must be the year of the BOYS! I have six friends that are all having babies in 2009, and five, or six including me, are having boys, and one is having a girl. It's fun to know if we stick around Pocatello the little boy will have plenty of mates to play with!

That's about all I've got for now! Oh yeah, picking a name for a boy has been quite a challenge so far. Good thing we have plenty of time left to (hopefully) agree on one.
