Tidings of great boy

Poor Olivia and Sam weren't quite as excited about playing
outside Monday as I'd thought they'd be.


Isn't this a happy, great time of year? The only time in the winter season where people might actually like snow for the Christmas-y ambiance it provides. Me personally, I could have it in Jan-Feb for a while as long as the temps stay in the 30's and 40's so we can play in it comfortably. And everyone has to go sledding at least once a season! But by March, snow needs to be on the way out.


We love going to the Christmas Parade every year! I think we could use the same picture every year, as well...we are going on 3 years with the girls' coats. It's awesome. I'm not sure about Russell's pea-colored Shrek hat, though it was free with some Kellogg's proof of purchases.

Me and my little reindeer! So if you can't see my pregnant belly in this picture, then you are missing out. We found out today what we're having and we're excited things are going well in there for the little boy. Sam is pumped to have a little brother. Don't feel bad if you didn't know- sometimes I'm not sure how to fit my reproduction into conversation. Any which way, the lines are open for discussion now!

I find it incredibly easy to talk about reproduction. "Hey, eggs are on sale at Smiths this week and speaking of eggs....!" see, how easy it is?
I was kinda wondering about the Shrek hat too--good to know you didn't spend any money on it.

I grabbed what I could on the way out the door--what can I say?

Let's put "fuzzy hat" on my Christmas list.

congrats on another bundle of boy!

That parade looks fun! I will have to go to it some year

Speaking of reproduction, it is so not my turn. Unless one of you wants to come live with me and take care of my responsibilities for five months, my reproductive days may be in the past.

What?! You're pregnant? You really NEED to work that into conversation! You have a blog-just shout it out!!

Congrats ERIN!!! :) I'm so excited for you guys! :) I have to say, you make pregnancy look so incredibly good... it's almost not fair to the rest of society! I can't believe you're THAT far along already! Where are you hiding that child??

Maria said...

I was wondering if you had said something about being preggers! Congrats to you! That is so exciting!

Jen said...

Yay - a boy! Lucky Sam. Congratulations :)

Jennifer said...

Congratulations!!! We've heard rumblings via Mormon grapevine. So excited to hear something concrete! Happy for you guys. Sammy is a lucky guy someone to wrestle with!

Where are the comments from the rest of the fam???? This is exciting stuff. I hope you got some emails, at least! Maybe you could show some belly pics!

That is the classic snow picture-- I love it. Way to capture the memory so perfectly! That way they can remember all their happy moments together.
