Christmas Cookies

We just got finished making sugar cookies. Dad even got in on the action. Here are some pictures.

Bryan with his huge Ginger bread man!

Daddy helped add the final touches to an even bigger Gingerbread man/Angel.

My mother-in-law (Nonny) took the kids for two whole days! I got all my errands run yesterday. It was so nice to run into a store and run out. I headed out to the doctor about 8:00 yesterday morning and I didn't get back from running errands until 2!! Everything went well with the doctor. He said that he was fine with me doing a v-bac (delivery after a c-section). He didn't mention my weight, but I know that I have gained too much. I will have to be more careful in this last trimester. He said that Bailey was measuring right at 28 weeks and my tighters are still measuring zero!

Jonathan and I decided to open one gift from each other last night. I got him the new/old Super Mario Brothers for the wii and he got me a new camera. My camera was still one of those 4 mexapixel kinds. The new one takes much better pictures! We played Mario Brothers for a while. It brought back lots of memories and it is actually a game that I will play.

This morning I worked on Kylee's room. I have been putting the clothes that don't fit her in her closet since she was born. There are lots of clothes in there! I have needed to go through them to get ready for Bailey, but I knew that was next to impossible with a little helper named Kylee around. It took me almost 2 hours, but I finally got it done. I put 4 huge crates of clothes in the garage to be put in the attic until they fit Bailey. I went ahead and hung up clothes for Bailey while I was sorting them. Now they are ready for her arrival even though I have three more months.

Please keep my mom in your prayers. She was put in the hospital Monday night with pneumonia. She got to go home today and seems to be doing well, but I am worried that she will over do it. She needs to rest!

I hope that all of you have a very Merry Christmas!!

Nine Years

Yesterday was our 9th Anniversary!! I can't believe that we have been married that long. Our sweet friends kept Kylee and Bryan for us so that we could have a night out. We went to the Olive Garden to eat and then headed over to the mall to a watch a movie. We saw "The Blind Side." I highly recommend it!! It's one of those stories that really makes you thankful for what you have. I only had to go to the bathroom twice, so I saw most of the movie. It was so nice to have a night out without the kids, thank you Locklins!!!! I love you Jonathan and I look forward to many more years to come.

The directionally gifted

For those of you who know me well, know that I am very directionally challenged. My father-in-law is getting me a garmon for my birthday to help me with this challenge. Bryan is very good at directions. Sometimes he tells me how to get places in Belton that I have been to before, I just don't remember how I got there.

Kylee apparently has his gift. For those of you who are locals, you will know where I am talking about. Kylee knows that after we drop off Bubba at school we turn right to go to "class" on Tuesdays and Thursdays. If I turn left to go home, she cries for class. I figured this was probably normal for a kid her age since we do it so often, but little did I know how gifted she was.

We had to run to Hobby Lobby yesterday to get some things for work. After we finished our shopping, we had to go to the teacher store to get some things that Hobby Lobby did not have. I pulled off of Scott street and took a left onto 31st street. Kylee cried in the backseat, "No Mommy, home!" She knew that in order to get home we were supposed to turn right! After we finished at the teacher store we headed back toward the loop at which time she said, "Daddy, Daddy." I was trying to figure out what she was talking about. Then we turned right onto the loop and she was very upset and started screaming for Daddy. She knew that John Deere was to the left and we were going the wrong way. If only I could have inherited some of her sense of direction!

Birthday fun!

Last weekend we celebrated Bryan's 11th birthday. His actual birthday was in November, but we couldn't get the gym at church reserved until this month. I think it was a great success. I was definitely exhausted at the end of the night, but that means I did my job, right?

My camera died in the middle of the party so I don't have very many pictures. Here are the ladies making pizza! Thank you to all of my family for the help!

I am feeling very pregnant lately. My scholiosis has been bothering me so I started wearing my inserts again. I am hoping that will help. I am also trying to not carry Kylee as much so that means that we will have a lot more spankings around here. She really like to run from Mommy! Please pray that I will do what I need to do, spankings are hard for me. Here I am at 23 weeks.

Jonathan and I got to do all of our Christmas shopping on Sunday. My mom was in town and kept the kiddos for us. We actually only had to go to two stores and ordered one thing on line. We still have to get some other little presents, but we are done with the kids!! One thing that made shopping so easy this year was that I took Bryan to Target with a clipboard. I told him to make his Christmas list while we were there. So he wrote down everything he wanted and I came home and looked at all of it online before we went shopping. So we knew how much everything cost and what we could get.

Kylee loves to cook. I got her some pots and pans for Christmas and she woke up from her nap right as I finished wrapping them. I had gone in the other room to put something away and I came back to find that she had unwrapped them and was saying, "Oooh!" Luckily she quickly got distracted by something else and I re-wrapped them and put them away. I guess I can't put the presents under the tree as a I wrap them this year!

And yes I know that I am up at crazy hours, yea for being pregnant!
