The girls new ride

This is of the girls enjoying their new stang. Arwen got to drive a little and still needs to get a little longer in the legs and learn to move the wheel while mashing the gas pettle so that she does not run into things.

Below is after a long time riding and Arwen falling asleep while Tori rode her around. She stayed like this and slept for about 30 minutes. She was using the pillow that we had stuffed behind her to help her with reaching the peddles when she got the chance to drive eairler.

Picture of Lexi

Here is the updated picture of Lexi that I had done at the 32 weeks check up.

This is of her with her eyes closed facing you. her left arm is up by her head and hand above her head. She has the sweetest looking face with chubby cheeks and long forhead like her daddy. I think that her nose even is like her daddy a little on the large side and that little mouth is cute too.

32 week OB appt today

We went in hoping that since Lexi was transverse (sidways) the last time that she would be back head down, SUPRISE she was head up like she loves to be. Dr. CHartrand even said that she is being a bit diffucult and refuses to stay in the best position.
We talked about c-section and doing it early if she is still head up at the next 2 appts. which will put me at 36 weeks and if she is head down talked about doing us a favor and inducing me at 37 weeks so that she is out for sure when company plans on being here. I told him that Velvet and Jesse will be here the week I am due and that we also had Greg's parents talking about coming out and my parents coming out also. He understood since everyone has to buy plane tickets.
I am really praying HARD to not have a c-section, I have been a little scared off by one friend telling me that it SUCKED major and I DO NOT want one if I can help it.

I got a profile picture of her today and boy is she a cutie. She has a long forhead like Greg, chubby cheeks and a nose like Greg's (big). As soon as I can find the cords for my printer I will scan a copy and post it for you all.

Our Christmas Weather

Ok, for today we had an mazing day with it only getting to 60 degrees with a light breeze and tonight it will be down to about 28 degrees. This is all also with no humidity.
Tomorrow it is to get only up to about 63 degrees and down to 42 degrees that night.

We really wanted snow for Christmas, but that is a lot to ask for in this area of Texas. Maybe at our next base we can get snow for Christmas!!

the girls

I took these pictures the other day of the girls

Tori in her new outfit that we were given when we lived on base. We got a few bags of clothing and I forgot about them until I was unpacking a few things and found them.

Arwen in her new cowboy hat that we got at a Christmas event in the park here in town. Tori also got a cowboy hat, but would not let me take a picture of it on her that day.

My 10 year anniversary gift

I LOVE my rings. Greg got a better ring a few years back for our 5th anniversary. I got these yesterday at the mall and LOVE them. I was able to wear them for a short time until my hands began to swell again. I can't wear them much due to that, but look forward to when I have Lexi and wil be able to wear them full time.

The center diamond is actually 4 smaller square diamonds and then all over the wedding band and other band its small square diamonds. Its about 1/2 ct more in total wight then my first ring, which I still have. I was not going to trade it in for anything in the world since it means so much to me.

Baby Update

We had an appt today and the doctor said that Lexi looked good, but was on the small side for her weight, that is a good thing for me since I have them on the large side of 8 + pounds or way more.

We will have another appt in 2 weeks on the 26th of December. She did move from head down to now being sidways in my tummy, so we hope that she will move back down.

Strange Texas Weater

Ok so it was around the 80s yesterday by mid day, but by the time it hit 5pm it was almost 50 degrees. Today it only got to 50 degrees if that and tomorrow its to be in the 70's. WOW, I am SO ready for a steady temp instead of going back and forth between spring type weather and winter.

I hope that the next time we move stations, we move somewhere that we actually get winter for a few months instead of this quacky weather we have here.

29 week pregnant picture

Not sure if I look any larger or not from my 22 week picture, but here it is. I know that I am finally gaining some weight and it shows more in my face, but I am also having swelling issues in my hands, feet and face. This is also a new outfit I got during black Friday on the internet, since I was not about to get out super early to shop.

Arwen was trying to be silly today with this picture of her. Not sure what she was really doing.

Picture of our Tree

This is our tree for 2007. The girls this year helped in putting the decorations on the tree. When it got too hard they helped by handing the decorations to daddy to put on. This is the fullest we have ever had the tree with decorations.
