Heading to New York...

No updates coming soon... I'm heading to New York in the morning to visit Jarrod. He doesn't have Internet, so I won't be on unless I head to a coffee shop or some place with WiFi. :) I'm so excited to spend some time with him. We're flying to Cincy for Christmas. I'm hoping the snow stops long enough for my drive.
On another note...Lindsay welcomed Carson Riley yesterday. I got to visit him briefly (briefly since Gavin wasn't allowed in, so her husband played with him in the lobby for 10 minutes or so and let me hug Lindsay and hold baby Carson.) He's absolutely adorable! Makes me miss the newborn phase.

Daddy time & Santa time

What a great weekend! Jarrod surprised us and came home a day early. He got here just as Gavin was getting ready for bed on Wednesday, so needless to say, bedtime was later than usual. He's so great...I came home from work on Thursday and the house was so clean. He even did dishes, which he doens't usually do. It's so nice to come home to a clean house. Gavin got to have some much needed Daddy time on Friday. They hung out all day, went up to Beavercreek to visit some people at Sam's, then came to school so I could show him off.

We finally started some Christmas shopping on Saturday and Gavin sat on Santa's lap for the first time ever. I thought he would be scared, since he's starting to get a little uneasy when I leave him, but he did so great. The pictures turned out great. Later that day, we went down to Cincy and spent some time with Gigi. She is so incredibly weak. It's sad to see her that way, but I love just sitting in her bed with her and talking to her. She asked me this weekend if Grandpa ever got to meet Gavin. I had to reassure her that even though Grandpa died months before we were even pregnant, his picture's up in the house and Gavin sees him everyday. We hung out Saturday night with Travis and Doni. Quinn is going to have a little sister in April!

Buckeyes were not successful this year. Jarrod wasn't home when I tried to make them, and Gavin wasn't too interested in letting mommy make them. So, I only got about half a batch done, and they still aren't even dipped. I'm so behind this year for Christmas. It sucks!

Maternity pictures

Lindsay let me take some maternity pictures of her. I've always loved taking pictures, but I'm definitely getting more into it now. What do you think?

Mommy's got a brand new car...

OK, so not brand new...but new to me and definitely newer than my 15 year old Honda! :) As much as I didn't want to do it financially, it was time for the Honda to step down. I went and picked up my '05 Toyota Highlander today. It's so pretty! I can't wait to drive to New York in it. Finally a car that has a working radio, a window that can be rolled down without coming off track, and doors that lock! :)

Finally some pictures

Just before I started this blog, the computer crashed, so I haven't had much of a chance to get pictures on here. Here are a few from the last month now that I have my computer back :)
