Wonderful Holiday Season!

What a wonderful holiday season!

We have had so much fun. We decided to focus more on the activities associated with the season rather than big expensive gifts for each other. We've taken advantage of every opportunity to spend time as a family. It's been wonderful. We've been lucky enough to have both sets of grandparents come and visit for a few days each. We were able to go to Grapevine and saw the ICE exhibit at the Gaylord Texan with John's parents which was wonderful. It was 9 degrees inside! The ice sculptures were amazing and we all had a great time.

John, Maya and I in our Gaylord Parkas - SO COLD!

That blur is John sliding down an ice sleigh - note the reindeer - all ICE!

We were sad to see BJ & Skeets go on the 23rd. Christmas eve my parents came up from South Texas. We had a great Christmas day - Maya had a blast with all of her new toys and the four of us adults had such a great time just watching her all day.

Saturday 12/28/08 John, Maya and I went to Ft. Worth and rode the train in the park. It was so much fun!!!

We are anxiously awaiting for baby brother to arrive. He's been letting us know he will be here soon. I've been contracting more and more and I think he's "dropped". Yea! We are scheduled for a c-section on the 22nd of January, but who knows. He could come at any time!!! Wish us luck!

Have a save and wonderful New Years!

Santa still not my friend

Maya is convinced that Santa is still not her friend.

We went to our little public library today and had story time with Santa! She was great the whole time and then when they let us go and see him - have photos with him...she wasn't convinced she liked this guy.

We finally got her to not scream in total distress for a few seconds. Two librarians and myself stood in front of her singing "Open Shut Them" very loudly......I guess it worked.

Baby Brother Sonogram Day!

Today we went for a sonogram to see our baby boy. He looks great and even has hair already! I couldn't believe you could actually see it on the screen. He is 5 lbs 14 oz right now and we have 5 weeks and 2 days before we are scheduled for a c-section (January 22 @ 7:30 am). The average weight gain for babies at this stage is about a half pound a week, so by the time we deliver he should weigh around 8 lbs. Now, having said that, when we had a sonogram with Maya right before she was born, they over estimated her weight by about a pound and a half.
So, we'll see what happens!

New to this

So, I'm new to this whole blogging thing. I had a little website set up when Maya was on the way, but I just haven't found the time to write much now that "baby brother" is coming.
Hopefully this will inspire me to write a little and post some photos.

We had a busy weekend with several events going on at once. We went to our dear friend's graduation from TWU, a Christmas party at church, a model train show and then home for a nice evening with the family on Sunday. Whew! The photos are from the train show. Maya loved the larger trains that were laid out on the floor. She giggled each time they went by.

Not much else to report right now. We head back to the doc tomorrow to do another ultrasound. My OB thinks I'm measuring a little too big for 33 weeks, so we will see just how big little brother really is. Should be interesting.

I'll post something as soon as I can.
