Christmas 2009

We had a wonderful Christmas. My mom came up and spent Christmas with us and Reuben’s family. I made pot roast for Christmas Eve dinner and we enjoyed the company of his parents, my mom, and his Grandma.

Christmas morning we went over and had breakfast and then opened presents. It was a lot of fun, laughter, and love. The rest of the day you could say was spent eating way too much. Eating lunch, dinner, snacks, dessert… etc. We had way too much food.

Reuben and I treated ourselves to a PS3 this year. Well it is more for him of course, but I will get some enjoyment out of it too.

Evelyn still has not made her appearance yet. We are hoping she will wait until Friday (1/1/10). I have been feeling some contractions, but nothing very strong. It wont be much longer and she will be in our arms.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Baby Bump Session 7

We are getting so close to Evelyn making her appearance. I am so excited to hold her in my arms. What a miracle of life it is to have watched my tummy grow knowing it is her growing inside.

We finished the nursery and are ready for her. We have a theme of baby animals and mainly pink and green for colors. I also wanted yellow and as you can see, I snuck it in there too.

Here are some pictures of the nursery. (Willy wanted in the photos too). Only 17 more days till she is due!!! YAYAYAYYAYA!

So Thankful!!!

My husband has been wonderful this weekend. He got up on Friday and decided to finish the kitchen. We have been remodeling for some time now and finally have our kitchen finished. Well almost, but it looks finished to me. One really does not realize the importance of knobs on cabinets until one is 37 weeks pregnant, bending over to the floor just to get out something from the cabinet. It is so wonderful now just to pull the handle. I just love our little house now!

So it seems not only am I nesting… but Reuben is too :)

To thank Reuben for all his hard work and for being such a great husband to me, I made a fancy fondue dinner for us. It was SOOOOOO good! I definantly think we will be doing this again soon. Maybe as a date night.

We are ready for Evelyn to arrive. The room is all set up for her (not complete on decorations but ready for her arrival). We are hoping she arrives on 1/1/10. It would be a great New Years gift for us.

We hope everyone enjoys their Christmas this year.

Many blessings!!!
Love the Betts
