Thank you Cheri!

Well, the wanting to throw up gave up to puking my guts up, but Cheri told me her secret and if I suck on the lemon drops it seems to help stop it before it becomes too bad! You rock!

Take that back...

I said earlier that I don't get sick, well I should have not said that, cuz with this pregnancy.......I am sicker than a dog. I wish I would just throw up, but I don't----I just want to desperately. Jeff is being SO good with everything too. And David takes care of me and is always tucking me into my bed. I am thankful for my boys. They are very good to me. David told me he asked Santa for a baby so that way our baby would stop throwing up in my tummy making me sick and he could get out of there. It was very cute. We are very excited for Santa to come in two days and to see what he brought everyone! Merry Christmas everyone!

ok, blood is back

I don't know what to think, lol. My dr. called this morning and yep, my hCG numbers looked good. In fact, they over-tripled in 24 hours......so, he said to be aware that many times that means multiples. Lol, I cried, but the Lord knows what he is doing, and I am praying for just one healthy ONE! :) He said he just wanted me to be prepared JUST IN CASE, so I am preparing JUST IN CASE!!!!!!!!

New cat


Under the Christmas tree


This cracks me up, he sleeps like a dog!


Sprawled out on our bed. He is so huge!

I am such a sucker! We were at Petsmart, and this cat was going to be put down. Well, David and I fell in love with him, and "Champ" came home with us that day. I am so glad that Jeff just rolls his eyes at me when I do things like this! Here are some pics of Champ feeling right at home. He has ended up being a really good cat so far!

Surprise

For those of you not sure what to think of our baby countdown, I finally got the blood results back from the doctor today. The count was 695! I am getting more blood drawn tomorrow to make sure the count is doubling, but he is sure everything is ok.
We are very very excited. For those of you who didn't know, in early November we had a positive which didn't stick, so it was both sad and frustrating but this time we are good to go!
The due date, as of right now, is August 17th and we are very excited! Jeff is both worried and excited since he didn't even meet Nic till he was crawling because he was stationed in Japan, so this will be a new adventure for him too. I don't get sick, and so far so good. Just eat, eat , eating! We hope for a healthy baby, of course, but would love a girl. Jeff wants a boy, but I know secretly he would be over the moon with a little girl! David is so excited, which is a relief. With him turning 6 next month, it was a big, long decision as to have a baby at all. But, he is excited and loves to help me eat! :)

Ginger Bread House


Aunt Charity in charge of the frosting


My boys


Addison helping grandma. She is SO freaking cute!



The very start of the house building


The boys were very excited to build

Charity and the kids made a ginger bread house. It was fun and turned out very cute. We were able to have Nicolas for Thanksgiving and loved every minute of it!

Thanksgiving


Dipping the first Turkey


Oh my goodness it was good!


Reading the instructions before we started. He injected them both with some butter injection that was sooo good!

We had an awesome Thanksgiving this year! Charity and Jake came down and spent the week with us. We LOVED it. We wish they would move down here! Jeff fried his first (two) turkeys and oh my goodness! they were SO SO SO GOOD!!!!!! They were so moist and yummmy! We are sold, no more oven turkey's for us!

Alex



Every time Jeff is home we love to feed Alex. I invited him when he isn't home but I think he is still scared to come over! lol. Of course, everyone loves Uncle Alex and so, much to his dismay, I took some pics! I thought I had the latest ones on the computer so I will add those pics later :)

Jeff and David


David loves Jeff-anything and everything Jeff does, David has to do. He no longer wants to wear pajamas cuz Jeff only wears his boxers, so now that is all he wears. I found them like this the other night when I came upstairs from working out. Jeff is an amazing dad~I am really blessed.

Bailey







Bailey, our huge red Golden Retriever LOVES to push his babies and balls UNDER things and then fight to get them out. He whines and cries and barks, until we get up and retrieve the thing under whatever he has put it. This time, I caught him on camera! It really is quite funny, and annoying!

Halloween







I forgot to post Halloween! Shame on me! David went trick or treating with his best friend Kadin. It was the first year of his "whole entire life" that it wasn't cold or snowy! Karol and I actually were able to walk the streets with the boys. They made a haul! The good thing is, since we always have had a candy basket in the house, David isn't a big candy gorger! The bad thing is, I STILL love the candy! I wish he would eat it! :)

Honoring Winter, the cat


His favorite spot this summer. Every day he would sleep in the window sill. As he grew, it became a little harder to fit. But he did it!


Snuggling with the little kitten we had.


He was helping, I am sure.

Last night, our kitten Winter had an unfortunate accident with a car. We loved Winter and will miss him terribly.

David summer soccer and baseball (T-ball)


Being coached. We finally had a coach that knew what he was doing this year.


I dont' know where his glove is, but he is ready.


Another mom shot, so cute!


The Team Blue Sharks


This was right after a good dive for the ball.


Such an annoying mom I am, getting on the field to get him in action. He was embarrassed I think lol.


My boy!

I finally transfered David's soccer pics to the computer. He loves soccer and baseball. Who knows if it will last but for now, we are all over it!

Pumpkin Decorating


David LOVES the camera!


Cori concentrating on her pumpkin hair


David and his many eyes.


Too much fun!


She is SO cute!

My friend Jessica chose to do something different with her daughter this year and I had to copy her! Instead of cutting up the pumpkin she just decorated it. The kids LOVED it! So did the cats actually! :)

Sammi the cat


One of the many million reasons I love Jeff is his love of critters, just like I do. After all the nightly cuddle times and locking the house and all that, when I finally came into bed, almost an hour after Jeff, this is what I found. Him cudding up with Sammi. He pretends he doens't like her, but she LOVES him and the feeling is mutual, I know it! :) The picture is really dark, but I didn't want to wake him up since he had to drive at one in the morning.

Shoe Night





I have no idea what started shoe night, I think with David trying on Jeff's boots. But soon they had every single pair of my heels out, and were walking around and posing for the camera. Jeff and I were ROLLING, it was so funny.

Jeff's Truck





I should probably put some pictures of Jeff's baby up. This is his truck and our money maker. Although the six days home since we have been married is hard, but then again, absence makes the heart grow fonder right?

Brothers






So, we are starting to think of Thanksgiving, and inviting family and such to our house and I invited my brothers to come down here. I have four and I love them all very much. Well, so, as I am talking and texting them I remembered what they attempted to do on my wedding day and had to share pictures with all of you. Remember, I love them all dearly! :)
