Baby #3

Yes, you read that right.
I'm officially announcing that we are expecting our 3rd baby this next summer!!

This may come as a surprise to some, but, yes, it was planned and we are very excited!! My due date is August 9th but I had my others three weeks early, so we will see how this goes! I'm about 8 weeks along and I've been dealing with morning sickness the last couple of weeks, very normal for me. I just have such a hard time doing anything when I feel like this. I keep reminding myself that it is so worth it to have these sweet babies come to us. Luckily I'm only sick til about 14 weeks. 6 more weeks, that sounds soooooo long at this point, but I will survive!!

Christmas Pictures

We got a lot on video this year, but here are a few pictures.



Isabelle did not want to cooperate for most of the pictures. See my smiling boy in the background, so good to work with .

ANTICIPATION!!

Tomorrow is Christmas Sunday and I'm so excited to dress my babies up for church. I absolutely love Isabelle's Christmas dress, its so festive!! I've had it in her closet this last month waiting for tomorrow. I also have hair clips, a bracelets, and her black tights and shoes. (So fun to have a girl!)
I got this sweater for Jakob from the Gap. Doesn't look as good as the dress in the photo, but it will look great on Jakob tomorrow! It wasn't the one I originally wanted, but I waited to see if they went on sale. When I went back they had gone on sale, but the sweater I wanted was gone! I did get this one for a great price and I actually am quite pleased!! Jakob's favorite color is green and he is very excited to wear it. Sometimes my shopping strategies do work out for the best, sometimes. Can't wait to see them all dressed up.

Cousins

As promised I'm posting pictures of the cousins together. I'm so sad that I didn't get any with Noah. They didn't make if over the last night, Aaron wasn't feeling well, and of course I saved pictures until the very end.

Jakob was so good with Michael Dunn and Michael seemed facinated with all of his older cousins. They all really played well together, just needed a couple reminders to share and be soft!!

Such a good one, so serious.

Christmas Cards

Finally!!
This stack of envelopes makes me so happy!
They will be going into the mailbox tomorrow and heading out to arrive at your doorsteps. HOPEFULLY they will make it before Christmas.

A Wonderful Visit

Sorry it has been so long!! We have been visiting with our family from Texas. Michael, Laurie, and Michael Dunn have been staying with us for the last week and I am totally enjoying their company. I took this opportunity to take a mini vacation from life, anything that I didn't absolutely have to do I put on hold. It has been so good to spend time with them and be together as a family. I appreciate them coming and driving so far to see us!! They are so wonderful, so fun to be with, and so good to hear all the happy things they are doing in their lives. I love watching the kids play together. Jakob, Isabelle, and Michael Dunn have played so well together. Jakob has been so sweet with him and Isabelle has been throughly entertained and she TRIES to be soft!! I have actually been quite impressed with how gentle she has been with him. We have also had Noah over with Melissa and Aaron and he has been thrown into the mix. So fun, all the Huish Grandbabies playing together. I will post more tomorrow and try to get some pictures up.

What A Day!

1 Sick Baby, 3 Trips to Safeway, and a Little 24

That was my day in a nutshell. Steve and Isabelle were sick all day yesterday with that stomach flu that has been going around. Isabelle just laid around and slept all day!! (So unlike my little busy girl.) I made three seperate trips to Safeway. I was getting ready for the young women activity last night and had to get some things for my sick people at home.

All in all, it was a pretty productive day!

Tuesday are always a little crazy with Young Womens, but Isabelle slept all day with her dad, I was able to get some things done while Jakob played quietly, and nobody was hungry for dinner so I just warmed up some chicken noodle soup. We also got 24 season 6 in the mail and we started watching that last night when I got home from Young Womens. We love that show and get a little into it when we have a whole season of DVDs at our disposal, but we were good last night and got to bed by 11:30pm.

This morning everyone woke up feeling better and I just pray Jakob and I don't get it. We just got over our colds and I really am feeling good. I need all the energy I have to get ready for Christmas in just a few weeks!!
