The Good Wife's Guide

Take a look at this Good Housekeeping article from 1955. It's pretty darn funny! You'll have to click on the picture to read it. It'll put ideas into your man's head so don't let 'em read it=).

So, I'm taking a poll for any of you interested in voting. The ultrasound is on February 4th and we are so excited to find out the gender. And so is Lydia! Up to this point, the baby's "name" has been HECTOR. Lydia even prays for Hector, the baby in Mommy's tummy. Kate's just oblivious to the whole thing--either that or in denial, I don't know which. We'll keep you all updated when the time comes! In the meantime, vote people!!

Morning (Afternoon and Evening) Sickness

For those of you plagued with mourning (I mean morning) sickness like I am- STILL, here's a little article I read that I found a bit interesting about GINGER.

And I'm all ears for anyone with any other ideas. I'm flat OUT and despairate (I mean desperate).

Winter Wonderland (a week late)

Well, we woke up to 9 inches of snow this morning. Derrel thought all along this holiday break that he started back to school on Jan. 2 and as he was braving the snow down our treacherous driveway, he turned around and thought, "This is NOT worth it." Luckily, he checked again and school doesn't start until tomorrow. We were SOOO happy! We had a fun snow day. Santa brought new sleds this year and we made good use of them today!

This is Kate's first sled ride by herself. She did awesome!!
