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!
