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...
