Saturday we went to a birthday party for Luke....he turned one!!! The girls were soooo excited! All they kept saying was "Birthday Party"...."Birthday Party"...."I love Luke"...."Luke is my best friend"! Luke is the son of one of Jeremy's employees....this was the first time that the girls have met him. Everyone had such a great time. The girls played with the huge balloons and ate lots of cake! I think Luke was a little overwhelmed with all the people....but he was still soooo adorable....handsome little guy with the prettiest blue eyes!!! (sorry no pictures)
Because I don't get out much I am always confused at what day it is...today I pulled out the milk and the date on it was 11/29/08!!!!!!! Oh my goodness, time is flying! I overlooked the fact that the milk jug serves as my calendar...and realized that the holidays are here! The holidays are serving as my safe zone with Addison. "If I can make it past the holidays". Well we are making it! Pretty soon our home will be full of baby bottles, dirty diapers, lullabies and the sweet smell of a newborn!

Sunday was Jeremy's day to get all the trees trimmed and grass mowed. Well, he didn't realize how much help he would actually have. Faith and Grace helped him trim all the bushes (using mommy's kitchen scissors), pull all the vines off the house and pile up all the trimmings. Here are a few pictures of our yard work day!

I am having a hard time narrowing down what I want to get Faith and Grace for Christmas this year. My mom, DeeDee, said that Grace told her that they needed lots and lots of toys for Christmas. That is exactly what they need....lots and lots of toys!!!One thing I did pick up was board games......ya know....hungry hungry hippo, candy land and chutes and ladders. All the fun beginner games. I am really excited about these gifts....I love playing board games!!!!
I was thinking about getting them an electric car. Maybe a jeep they can ride together. I did find this one at a shop in the DFW area.....I love it!!
I can picture all of us girls taking a walk....me pushing Addison in the stroller and the girls riding their little car. Then the agonizing thought of keeping twins in a motorized car and a stroller all on the same sidewalk made me wonder if I was thinking clearly today.
I am just so torn. I don't know what to do for Christmas!! I need ideas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My sweet hubby. I took this picture right as he was walking in to vote. Yes he thought I was crazy and yes it embarrassed him...but this was a historic election year and I wanted a picture to commemorate it :)

One great aspect of a closely monitor pregnancy is the fact that we get to see Miss Addison every two weeks. Yesterday she was very calm.....until I drank some juice and had a tootsie pop on the way to the doctor's office. This time we laughed out loud watching her. She had one hand on her head and the other holding her foot. Every time we tried to see her profile she would turn away from us. The one time she turned towards us.....she stuck her tongue out!!!!
Can you see her little face?
Miss Addison gained 11 ounces over the last two weeks....she is now 2 lbs 12 oz!!! I won't be commenting on how much I gained :)

Today Jeremy had some friends over to play cards and watch the Texas - Texas Tech game. So....my mom and Meme came over to hang out with me!!! It was so nice to spend time with them. We picked up some pictures that were ready for Addison's room, had lunch and then they just sat in bed with me. Mom rubbed my belly, which by the way is the greatest thing in the world, and Addison went crazy. In fact, she was very active today.....all day. I am hoping this means she will sleep all night so mommy can get some rest. It was so nice to sit and just talk to mom and meme (and of course listen to the strange sounds and funny smells that come along with a house full of guys)!
