We did have a wonderful Christmas though! It's the first year the girls actually get the concept of Jesus' Birthday and Santa Claus! It was so much fun playing Santa, well Jeff mainly built the "toy" Santa brought the girls! They got a HUGE swing set! one of those wooden ones that took poor Jeff AKA "Santa" a week to build! But oh was it worth seeing their faces on Christmas morning! It didn't matter it was 5 degrees below freezing that morning, we stayed outside nearly all day long sliding and swing our little hearts out!!!! I knew they should open all their other gifts before we showed them the swing set. We opened all their gifts first, then they read the note Santa left next to the empty plate our cookies once were, it said "Look outside for the gift I brought you!" It was great!!!! I feel so blessed to have such polite, gracious children! They sang Happy Birthday to Jesus all weekend long and thanked him so much for all the gifts! Every person who gave them a gift got a very quick thank you before ripping the paper from the present! I was filled with such pride and joy watching these little girls have the time of their lives! Oh how I wish I was 3 again!
Here are a few pics from Christmas! Enjoy:
My C-Section is scheduled for Jan 7, 2009! I will keep you updated!
Until next time.......

I think I am very very close to having this baby boy! Thursday I went in for a regular apt and the Dr ended up sending me to Labor and Delivery because I was having contraction every 6 min. The contractions kept coming and by 5:00pm they were every 9o sec. However, the contractions were not doing anything to my cervix, so she held me overnight to observe me and everything just stayed the same. The next morning she gave me the option to stay in the hospital and wait and see or go home and wait it out, so I am at home waiting this labor out. He will come in God's time! I am having steady, hard contractions today though so I may go in and have them check me to make sure everything is okay.
I wanted to update everyone on Jack's situation and Wish everyone a Merry Christmas! I will end with a family picture by Red Barn Design. I will update again as soon as I get a chance! Love you all!!!

Yes...we LOVE Santa! The girls just can't get enough of the Jolly Ol' Man! We have plans to see him again at the annual Christmas parade this coming Sunday! This picture was taken by my friend Candice May-Thurmond with Red Barn Photography.....www.redbarndesign.net! She takes awesome pictures and did these particular photos as fundraiser for the Relay for Life/ American Cancer Society. We just donated $10 and got a free 8x10 from an awesome photographer, how awesome is that? I love her work...be on the look out for my Maternity/ Family Christmas pics she took last Sun! I just have to get the pics from her and get her permission to post them here! I think they turned out great, other than the fact that I am HUGE!!!!! Only 31 more days until I hold my baby Jack! If I last that long, the Dr said today she would be surprised if I last until Christmas......which is fine by me! I just may have my very own Santa Baby....ya know, I've really been an awful good girl!
Until next time........
