Well, tomorrow's the big day. We are scheduled for an US and hope to find out whether we have a little boy or a little girl here. I'm excited, into it, gung ho, operation go. And if we have a girl...our Christmas card next year will be out of this world, cause we'll name her Mary.


Kidding though. We will not name our child based on pun usage. Cruel and unusual punishment. That's bad.

Anyhow, I don't have much for pictures this week. I did take this blurry picture of our yard.

The lawn guys were here one day and our yard was spic and span- all the leaves were sucked up and carted away. And that picture is approx 15 hours later. Depressing? Yes, considering that the exact same thing happens inside this house on a compressed timescale. I can have everything in its place, no cracker crumbs or jam handprints in sight, all toys and books in their ranks, chairs pushed in around the table. And then Anna wakes up from her nap and 15 minutes posthence, the above picture says it all. Ho-hum, and I have only one.

Other news, Chris and Jonny put up crown molding in the kitchen this past Saturday. Chris is finishing up painting, but I'll post a picture when it's done. Along with his project in Anna's room.
"Suction, please."

And lastly, Anna is developing a love for shoes. Everyone's shoes, especially Dad's.

We're down to MD tomorrow after the ultrasound, for Thanksgiving and Christmas all rolled into one. Does that mean we're having Turducken? No, thankfully. But we are excited to watch Anna enjoy opening her presents this year instead of contentedly eating wrapping paper. We'll post soon if we find out baby's gender.

    Love Aunt Katie

  2. Please don't name (if baby is a her) her Mary...than non of her aunts or uncle will be able to "correctly" say it!

  3. If you don't post the findings, please call me!! I can't wait to find out. I'll have my cell phone on. :)

  4. LOL Beth. Don't forget to thank Jon for that. You would be in trouble if Mary ever wanted a sniper rifle for Christmas.
