Santa Pictures

Blake had his picture made with Santa a couple of weekends ago. I wanted to take Haley, but she informed me he wasn't the real one and she was too big to get her picture made with Santa. It's so depressing...

Haley's Christmas Party

Today Haley had her 4th grade Christmas party. They had tons of food. They mostly ate and got treat bags. They made a sled with candy canes and a hershey bar. It was cute. The kids at Haley's table let Blake play go fish with them. He loved it! He also got treat bags too. One of the mothers also complimented me on how good he was! I was so proud!

Haley's 4th grade play

Santa Goes Green! We went to Haley's play tonight. It was about teaching santa how to "go green". Haley was an elf. The play was really cute and she did very good. Blake fell asleep though and drooled all over my shirt! Also, I went to the dr yesterday. I'm 31 weeks today. Kate weighs 3 pounds and 8 ounces. We tried to get some 4D shots but she had her face buried in the placenta. I'm afraid we won't be able to get a good look now that she's getting so cramped, but Dr. T said he would look again when I go back in 2 weeks. Here are some pictures from the play.

Blake's Christmas Party

Today Blake had his Christmas party at preschool. He had so much fun! First they made little candy canes and jingle bell bracelets. Then they got to play pin the nose on Rudolph. After that Mrs. Joyce read a book to them while the moms put the food out. They had cookies, fruit, donuts, goldfish, pigs in a blanket, bagel bites, cupcakes, marshmellows, juice, and milk. Of course Blake wouldn't eat anything but the goldfish. He's so picky! When they finished eating Santa came to see them. They all took turns sitting on Santa's lap. He talked to them and then gave them a present! When they all had their presents they got to open them. The boys got a set of Hot Wheels cars and the girls got a Barbie. Blake was so excited! They also got 2 books from Mrs. Joyce. As soon as we got home we had to open the cars and read a book.

Christmas Party

Saturday night we went to my hospital Christmas party at the Chenal Country Club. Nana watched Blake so we could go. Thanks Nana! We had fun. They had appetizers and a band. I won a $500 gift card to Home Depot and we have painted our kitchen and living room! We're hoping to redo our kitchen floor and still paint our room and the kids rooms. It's a lot of work, but I know once our little princess gets here we won't do anything but hold her. I go back to the doctor next week and I'm having another ultrasound. I can't wait! Here's a picture of me and Chris from the party.

Reese's Birthday!

Saturday Reese had his 2 year old birthday party! I can't believe he's getting so big. There were so many adorable little kids there. The theme was Transformers. He had this huge thing of ballons and that was the only thing he wanted to play with. Ashley sat in the floor opening his presents while he played with his ballons. He got through a few of them and then got sick of it. Liam sat with Ashley and helped her. Blake wanted to play with all of the toys and Reese put him in a headlock to get his Power Ranger back. It was hilarious! Neither one of them share very well. Here are some pics from the party.

More Thanksgiving!

I want to start by saying-GO RAZORBACKS! I'm so happy they beat LSU! Saturday we had another Thanksgiving meal at Chris's parents house. It was so good and we had a lot of fun. That afternoon we did a little bit of shopping(I got baby Kate a couple of outfits) and Rhonda fixed up my bedding for me. It looks so good! I'm so excited! Thank you Rhonda! I'm glad we get to see everyone again so soon. Julie is a little over 8 months pregnant now and she looks so good! I'm so happy for her and Chad. We're going to Dallas the day after New Years to have Christmas with them. Here are some pictures of the weekend...

Thanksgiving and Deer Hunting

We had Thanksgiving lunch at my mom and dad's house(Nana and Poppy). There was so much food and it was so good! My cousins Karissa and Kristin came over and Karissa brought her little boys Wesley and Parker. The kids had fun playing outside. After we left there we went to Chris's aunt Carolyns in Hamburg. Blake was so excited to see Annabelle. We ate AGAIN-which was also very good. After we visited for a little while we went back to Pappaw and Mammaw's house in Monticello. We're staying for the whole weekend. Chris woke up early this morning to go deer hunting and got a 9 point! Blake thought it was really neat. Saturday we're going to have another Thanksgiving at Bruce and Linda's and Chad and Julie will be here also. I'm so thankful for all of my family!

I got baby Kate's bedding in and I'm so excited! I love it! After Rhonda and I get it all fixed how I want it I'll put some pictures up. Hopefully I'll have it done right after Thanksgiving. I've got several things planned for the room so I can't wait to get started. We got the majority of our Christmas shopping done so I'm feeling very accomplished. We plan on putting up the Christmas tree this weekend, so now all that's left is wrapping all the presents and putting them under the tree! Blake is so excited about Christmas. He wants everything he sees on TV. It's so funny! I'm getting so big. Kate is moving around all the time and waking me up at night. I bought her some cute little hair bows the other day and my favorite sister, Ashley bought her niece a cute outfit. It has little Kitty feet. I just can't wait to see her!

Kate's Bedding

Thanks to the help of my wonderful sister-in-law, Rhonda-I finally found some bedding I like that is priced great. She is going to help me fix it up a little. Everyone tell me what you think!

Speaking of wonderful sister-in-laws, Julie called me tonight out of the blue to see how I was doing. It was a wonderful surprise. She also told me she has a blog now, so I'm really excited about that! I am so blessed to have such a wonderful family! Kate will be so lucky to have the best grandparents and aunts and uncles in the world! Not to mention the best big brother and sister ever. Haley and Blake are so excited. I'm about 6 1/2 months now and she is getting so big! I can feel her moving and kicking all the time now. We can't wait to see her and hold her and love her!

New Hair Cut

Friday night after trick or treating Blake decided to give himself a haircut. Here are some pictures.

We obviously had to shave it all off after that! :(


Friday night we took the kids trick or treating. Haley was a devil, Blake was a red power ranger, and Reese was the flash. We started out at Nana's house then went to great grandma's. We went to Haley's aunt Mary Grace's house for her halloween party then took the kids trick or treating in her neighborhood. They had so much fun! After that, we went to Heather's house to see Jaycee and Jarad. It's been so hard to keep Blake out of his candy!

Pumpkin Carving

We carved pumpkins tonight at nanna and poppy's house. We ordered pizza and all carved our own pumpkins. We do this every year and have so much fun! Also, my glucose tolerance test came back normal. So that is really good news. She told me just to watch my sugar and they would retest me. Here are some pumpkin carving pictures-and me at almost 6 months!

Doctor visit

I went and saw Dr. Thibault today for my monthly checkup. He did an ultrasound which showed it is definitely a girl. Her name will be Katelynn Michelle Huffman. We will call her Kate. Haley got to come today and watch the ultrasound. Dr. Thibault said everything looked great with the baby. I am so happy for that. I know she will be so precious! It's so exciting to think about the new addition to my wonderful family. I am so blessed and I do not take anything for granted. Unfortunately, I did not pass my glucose screen so I am going in the morning for a 3 hour glucose tolerance test. I'll find out if I have gestational diabetes. I'm really nervous. Everyone please pray for me and baby Kate!


We got to spend the weekend in Monticello at Chris's parents house. We had so much fun. Friday night we went to the high school homecoming game where we watched the Billies beat White Hall. The kids had so much fun. Annabelle was dancing and cheering-it was so cute! Brad and Rhonda and Chad and Julie were in from Texas for their 10 year high school reunion. It was so good to spend time with everyone. Chris caught 2 t-shirts in a row that they were throwing in the stands so each of the kids got one. They were so excited!

Saturday night we went to Hamburg and ate at Chris's aunt Carolyn and uncle Jim's restaurant, The Catfish Inn.(our favorite place to eat when we're in town!) Sunday Chris sang in church. It was wonderful. Baby Kate started moving around as soon as he started singing. It was precious! My mom came down for church and Julie's shower we had that afternoon. The shower was great. So many people came! We had a lot of fun. Julie got so many presents. I can't wait to see baby Mabry! I know she'll be beautiful!

Kicking Baby!

The baby is getting much stronger now and Chris got to feel her kick tonight! It was so exciting. I've been able to feel her for a while now, but this is the first time anyone else has. She was kicking so hard my belly was jumping. It is so exciting. One of her favorite things is to kick me in the bladder.

Pumpkin Patch!

Ok so this is really late, but I've been so busy! On October 2nd Chris and I went to the pumpkin patch with Blake and his preschool class. We had so much fun! When we got there the kids got to watch pigs race while they had juice and pretzels. Then they went on a hay ride and petting zoo. Then, they got to pick out their own pumpkin. It took Blake less than a minute and he had the cutest little pumpkin! I remember with Haley we would go up and down all the isles and take about 30 minutes before she would find the right one. They played on huge bales of hay with a tunnel inside. Blake loved all of it. I think we are going back on the 25th so Haley and Reese can go.

Razorback Game

We got up early this morning and left about 5:30 with my parents to Fayetteville. We got there around 9:30. Haley stayed with her Mimi and Blake went to Monticello to stay with Pappaw and Mammaw. The game was fun, even though we lost 49 to 14. Baby Kate went to her 1st game. She moved around a lot at the game. I'm feeling her a lot more now. She's moving right now too. I can already tell she's going to be a night owl like the rest of the family. We did an ultrasound one morning and couldn't wake her up, but by that afternoon she was moving around. So we made the LONG trip home this afternoon and got back just in time to go watch Haley cheer at the Vikings game. They performed their dance tonight and looked so cute. Here are a few pics.

Haley's 10th Birthday Party!

Haley's game got moved up to 2:00 yesterday so they got to play. Although the Vikings lost by 6 points, Haley looked so cute cheering. The girls had so much fun. Right after the game was over the tornado sirens went off so Haley's cousin Olivia didn't get to cheer at her game at 3. We waited the storm out then took the girls to Chili's for Haley's birthday. After that we visited Nana and Poppy at their house then went home and played Rockband. We got it for Haley for her birthday. Olivia stayed the night.

Haley had her party at Play Time Pizza in Little Rock. We had so much fun. She said it was the best party ever. We had our own party room with pizza, cake, and presents. After that the big kids went and played laser tag then played games. Blake played a game he won 1,000 tickets on. At the end of the 4 hours we were there Haley and Blake had over 4,000 tickets so they got prizes. I hope it's a birthday she never forgets! Thank you to everyone who came!

17 weeks-It's a girl!

I had an ultrasound yesterday and it's a girl! We are so excited(well everyone except Blake). He really wants a brother. Haley started screaming when I told her. I'll have my official ultrasound with Dr. Thibault in about a month, so it may change again then. Haha. Haley's birthday is Sunday and I hope the weather doesn't get too bad. She is supposed to cheer at her first game Saturday night. I'm afraid it will get rained out. We'll see.
