My bump, my bump, my lovely baby bump....

Baby Don is finally starting to make an appearance to the rest of the world. This picture was taken at 20 weeks and 4 days, which was also Christmas Day. We had a great day at the Hussey house spending time with family. More Christmas pics to come...

20 weeks...halfway to meeting our baby boy. Yesterday I had my 20 week appointment and the doctor said that everything is looking great and his growth is right on track with my due date, May 10th. It was so great to see him yesterday. And to top off a wonderful day, Richie was able to feel him move last night for the first time. It was pretty soft, but he said he was certain he felt him:). I have been feeling him move around for the last couple weeks, but Richie had yet to feel it. I keep getting emotional this holiday season because I feel so blessed. My family is healthy, my husband and I both have good jobs, and now this baby boy growing strong and healthy!!! How could one person be so blessed when others are suffering????

This Christmas I am thanking God for all that He has given me and praying for those less fortunate.

Baby Don, I love you soooo much already. I hope that the next 20 weeks goes as fast as the first 20 because I can't wait to meet you sweet boy.

Merry Christmas everyone!!!!

When PittBulls Attack...

Yesterday I witnessed a vicious pittbull attack!!! Below you will find a picture to prove that it happened...this is a DANGEROUS dog... Ha! Yesterday my wonderful little brother came over to weed my front yard flower bed so that my homeowners association would stop charging me. It ended up being a GREAT day. Joe, Janice, and Marie stopped by and while Joe was outside working Marie, Janice, and I had a little holiday party. After all the work was done and my front yard was looking amazing, we headed out to El Sarape for some yummy Mexican food.

To end a wonderful day, Richie brought home my birthday present and insisted I open it a day early because he thought I would want to use it today...and he was right!! He got me a Nook, so I have been reading most of the day. Such a great gift...I love my hubby!
Lady also had a wonderful day with all the company. She was exhausted by night time from all the snuggles and kisses that she was "attacking" everyone with:).

Love this Girl...

So this picture is from a few months ago and I meant to blog about it then, but never got around to it. Since I am currently running low on blogging ideas, I will blog about this now:).

This picture was taken one weekend (I think back in September or October) that my Mom, Sophs, and myself headed up to watch Abby one night so that Kim and Zach could go to a friends wedding. It was such a fun night with the girls. My Mom's good friend Mary Beth came over to hang out with us as well, so we all got some good girl bonding time in:). Sophia is such a little character and always entertains us with her never ending questions and quirky comments. She is such a smart girl and always amazes me with the things she thinks of.

The next day my Mom, Sophia, and I headed over to Paulsbo on the ferry for my cousins baby shower. At one point Sophs asked us, "uhhhh, is this boat going to flip over???" It made me laugh, but I quickly assured her that NO WAY would this boat flip over. After we snapped this picture, Sophia said, "Let's go back's a little scary out here!" It was so much fun to get some time with Sophs without all the other Aunties there. I love this little Lady!!!!

I think I have been replaced in my own bed!!! Richie and I had a great, relaxing day yesterday and spent most of it vegging in bed, which was very needed for both of us. Of course Lady and Baxter wanted to snuggle with us most of the day as well. At one point, I came back into the bedroom to find a Lady in my spot. She was actually sharing Richie's pillow with him!! It was too cute. I hope everyone had a great weekend and was able to get in some snuggle time with the ones they love (fur or no fur!!).

My Big Ol' Family

On Thanksgiving my family decided to dress in either brown, cream, or red, based on some cute matching outfits that my Mom found for the kids. It is really hard for us to get a picture with ALL of us in it so we wanted to take advantage of this opportunity. I just thought I would share one of the pictures will all of you. Every year we grow a little more:). It was such a great weekend...I already look forward to next year's Thanksgiving!
