Dah dananah!!!

Here is a sneak peak of our new little guy. He was born on December 28th at 9:50am.


'Tis the Season

I LOVE Christmas!! I love all of the fun decorations I get to put up, the treats I get to make and receive, the music, the lights, the parties and the hectic Holiday shopping.

Seeing as though I am due a short 13 days from today, Derek and I will be spending Christmas in Northern California. It will be our first Christmas by ourselves, but we have been making the most of it. We started things off by getting a Christmas Tree (5 tree lots later we found the perfect tree....while still negotiating a deal), and figuring out what kind of lights and ornaments to put on it.

We then got together with some friends for dinner and Gingerbread House decorating. Brittany Tanner and I teamed up against Shannon and Brooke... and guess who came out on top? Why the two Brittany's of course :) However, when I came home, one side of the roof had slid off. ...I'm still debating whether or not to hot glue it together.


Thanksgiving Weekend

Last weekend Derek and I drove down to Southern California and sent Thanksgiving with the Simmons family. All of his brothers and family members flew in for the occasion. It was great to be in Orange County and enjoy some of the things we've missed: the beach, a shopping area that stays open past 9:00 (Irvine Spectrum), Laguna, friends, and of course family. We had a fun-filled weekend of Turkey bowl, Turkey dinners, and helping to decorate for Christmas. On top of the festive weekend, Derek's mom and our sister-in-law Chris threw me a baby shower! I was thrilled at the chance to see some relatives and close girlfriends that I never get to see enough of. Thanks everybody for making it such a fun weekend!
