It's been a while since I posted, so I thought maybe I should let you all know the girls made it home safely. They didn't get home til almost midnight and school was cancelled the next day so it all worked out for the best.

We had a good Christmas. We celebrated it on Christmas Eve morning since the girls would be with their dad Christmas Eve until New Years Day. The girls and Joe got me a pair of slippers, 2 pairs of pajama pants and 2 jump drives. We also went and had Christmas with Joe's mom, sister, grandma & step grandpa. I got money from his mom & a gift card from his dad (they are divorced). Grandma gave us chocolate covered pretzels. yum! So we thought it all turned out well.

Joe and I went yesterday and signed up at SnapFitness so we could start working out a bit. I need to get some exercise so I don't gain a lot of weight during my pregnancy and Joe needs to lose some weight by delivery day to be healthier for all of us! I walked 10 minutes on the treadmill and rode 17 minutes on the stationary bike. I kept my heart rate under 140, which all the websites recommend when PG and working out.

Anyhow, that's about it. I'm 6 wks and 6 days along. I can't wait for my appointment on the 8th of January!

Happy Holidays!

Best wishes for a wonderful, safe, joyous holiday season to whoever stops by!

We have some very good news in our family. Joe, the girls and I are expecting a baby! My estimated due date is August 18. I have my first doctor appt on January 8 and will now a more exact date then.

The weather overnight has been pretty bad. It's snowed between 6-8 inches and the winds are blowing. The weather advisory is supposed to last til 7pm tonight with total accumulations of 8-12 inches with 20-30 mph winds.

The girls are expected to fly back from Florida tonight. They went with their dad & his girlfriend to visit their pampa. We'll see if the flights stay on time. Quite honestly, I doubt the airport will stay open, I just don't want my girls lives endangered!

Christmas presents are almost wrapped. I do still have to get a gift card for K's teacher, then I'll be done buying. Waiting for one gift in the mail. And need to do some baking today to make mini loaves of bread for teachers. That's about it.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Be safe, be careful, watch out for others while driving!
