santa claus is coming...

*we sent our letters out to the big man...cam was in charge of the letter drafting...maybe never again. vannah "i think i'll ask for a dog" cam "great idea, let's put that down"...

*we made cookies and delivered them to friends and neighbors...the girls luved running them up to the houses. they have really been getting into the spirit. the other day i was putting gifts under the tree that family had sent us...savannah said "who are those for?" and before i could answer, lucy shouted out "jesus christ, sissy!" lol.

*yesterday morning i slept in til 8:30, record breaker. i walk into the girls room and both of their faces look like this chocolate mess. i knew immediately the quietness that allowed me to sleep in. me: "savannah what did you have for breakfast?" vannah: "just yogurt mommy."

me: "you know santa doesn't come visit little girls that don't tell the truth. you had some of the cinnamon monkey bread didn't you?" vannah: "really sorry mommy."
*cinnamon bundt cake anyone....have a very merry christmas!

no one mourns for the...

the WICKED!!!
yeah, it was just as phenomenal as everyone says! i was lucky enough to get to go to chicago for a long weekend to spend time with my sisters, amy & emily. we went to see wicked downtown at the oriental theatre...i luved the music, amazing storyline, and the set was pretty crazy cool!
but this little guy was the main reason for the trip. luv you will, you are the best baby ever. we got some projects done for amy...scrapbooking/picture organization, "flip this dollhouse", jewelry organization, some cleaning and just little things all mothers with new babies are in need of.
emily and i at the fox news station...me attempting the weather forecast "chicago, well it is absolutely cold here" and emily "what was the top story for tonight again..."

*thanks cam for taking care of the girls (and j-bird for helping out). the girls had a great daddy weekend, mostly consisting of chicken nuggets and swimming at the rec center everyday.

*35 Years*
"...a gentle love, a tender love, a passionate love with big plans, an everyday love with quiet moments, a love born of trust and faith -a together forever love."
Happiest Annviersary to the two people I love the most.
The two people that gave me life and then taught me all about it!
We celebrated over the Thanksgiving holiday in D-town with a fantastic tribute night...it was so fun to be all together, share our favorite memories, and have mom & dad answer all our fun questions cards (first times, memories, dates, births, etc).

*YES, I'm Prego...14 weeks and due at the end of May...
feeling great & I already have outgrown my regular jeans (YES!).
*P.S. I have been wondering lately why is it that one of the first questions that people ask you when you tell them you are pregnant is..."was it planned?"...
