Christmas Collage

(For those of you who receive email updates when this blog has a new post, my apologies!  Your letter is in the mail and you will see what I am up to when it arrives.)  

For all of our new visitors who have received our letter this year - welcome!  Please click on the collage to make it bigger.  For those who would like to print the collage (grandparents, obsessed aunties, Uncle Tommy) please follow the link to Flickr.  Once there, look above the picture of the collage and find the button that says, "all sizes." Click on that and then choose the "original size" and download that.  It should be on your computer then.  Then you may print it out from there.  I suggest doing it at your place of business - they owe you, right?!  

Happy Holidays everyone!

Bump Watch!

Here's a bump update for you all.  I'm 15 weeks today, so I thought I'd take a pic.  Only 5 more weeks and I'll be half way done with this crap!  Today, I counted FIVE underground zits (ya know, the giant painful kind that never come to surface, but look and feel like crap) on my face.  FIVE.  I mean, is that really necessary?  Seriously, five?  Anyway, she/he is coming along nicely - apparently bones are forming this week.  Break out the milk and cheese! Oh and also 5 more weeks until we know if we have a she or a he.  Anyway, enjoy the pics.  I also included a few of Dyls from the past few days.  He made me ride the sled with him and wanted mommy to lay on her belly and zoom across the ice like he did.  Yeah, not happening this year!  And also a pic of Dilly painting.  He's been wanting to do that pretty often lately....such a fun cleanup.  NOT!  Ok, thats all! 

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

Well, our first winter storm is upon us!  Forecast was/is calling for 8-12 inches, and I think we probably have 8 or more by now.  Just thought we'd feature it here in the blog.  Not much else is going on today...just holed up in the house.  We did go to church this morning (not my idea, but crazy Erics....driving in a blizzard is ALWAYS a good idea) and they were having their Christmas program.  At one point, baby Jesus disappeared from the stage and Dylan says to us (and everyone within earshot), "where'd baby Jesus go?!?"  So that was our funny for the day.  Tonight we are grilling (another crazy Eric idea) some brats and baking some onion rings, so this pregnant mama can't wait!  : )  Dont worry, I worked out today.  It's all good.

This is a drift....the actual depth is not that much.
