Christmas is Over!

We had a busy, but great Christmas. At one point, I thought it would never end. Colson had so much fun, but I think he was totally wiped out by the time Thursday evening rolled around.

All the festivities started on Wednesday by going to Jeremiah's grandparents at noon, then to my memaws that night. (I forgot my camera at home for the first event.) Also, Jeremiah and I open our presents that night after Colson has gone to bed so that on Christmas morning we can concentrate on Colson.

On Christmas morning, we woke up, let Colson open his presents, get dressed, head to my parents, eat breakfast, open presents, clean up, then (this is where the plans change) we are supposed to be heading to LR to Chris and Aimee's house to have Christmas with the Kindy's. Like I said, the plans change.... Chris and Aimee both caught the stomach bug Christmas Eve night and were sick all thru the night, so at 845 Christmas morning, we are having a slight change of houses. We end up going to Jody and Lyndsey's house and everyone but Aimee was able to make it. (I also forgot my camera for Kindy Christmas...)

(Santa left a letter for Colson, telling him that he had left something in Daddy's shop, and that he needed to go look in there, and Colson was "reading" this to me.)

We also have another Christmas tonight and I'll post some pics of that soon!


Colson is going to be a BIG BROTHER!

That's right, we have another little one on the way! We are so excited and cannot wait for our first appointment with the Dr. I will be going back to my same doctor who deliverd Colson, which was Dr. Clint Henson at St. Jospeh's in Hot Springs.

As for me, I am already showing, believe it or not, but I wore some fabulous maternity pants to church on Sunday. I am not feeling too terrible, but I am very naseous. Other than that, everything is good. We are thinking I am about 7 or 8 weeks, so our new bundle of joy should be here around the later part of July. Colson is very excited and cannot wait for the baby to crawl out of mommy's belly. We will keep updating as we know more!!

Christmas Tag

I found this Christmas Tag on several peoples Blogs and thought I would start a tag! At the end you will find who I tagged to keep this going! Enjoy!
