What Andrew Got For Christmas...

A big brother T-shirt! We got it in size 4 so that it would fit next fall when our new baby arrives!!!! It doesn't really look that big on him right now though, does it?

We hadn't told the girls yet, we put the T-shirt in Andrew's stocking and let them figure it out :). We are all super excited!!! Well, I don't think Andrew and Bethi quite get it, but the rest of us are thrilled :). 

The baby is due August 25th, another fall birthday! Unless Baby is early (which I'm not counting on this time!) that will be six out of seven birthdays within a space of six weeks! August 25th is my mom and dad's anniversary and the day before Lee's and my birthday, that would be a neat birthday gift!

Lee has given his blessing on planning our first home birth.  More research to eat up my computer time :). Things seem to be going really well so far this time. I love going into a new year knowing it will bring a new baby!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas as well!

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. ~James 1:17

    I pray you are all well and that you are blessed in the new year.


  9. Thank you for sending me the address of this site. I loved seeing the pictures of your precious children. I didn't realize you are such an accomplished coupon clipper. I could have given mine to you when we lived next door.

  10. Wonderful news! Congratulations.


  11. I'm so happy for you (and a little envious in a good way)!



  12. Hi there. I've enjoyed quickly catching up to all the news on your family. I enjoyed the vacation picts (I miss SC - though I was there in October!)

    I also enjoyed seeing how your little guy is growing. I am sorry about the loss you had a few months ago....but happy you are expecting and things are going well now. I'll pray for you.

    thanks for the coupon info! I go to some of those sites but havne't heard about the other ones! I need to go check them out
