A Merry Christmas with a Belly That Shakes Like a Bowl Full of Jelly!

We hope that you all had a very Merry Christmas and are gearing up for the New Year! Our Christmas was quiet and relaxing this year. This was our first time not having any family around. We sure missed everyone, but had a great time being lazy and taking it easy for the day. I stayed in my jammies all day long, which is not much different from most days when I can get away with it! It's so nice to have pregnancy as an excuse to stay comfy. The changing belly and ever shrinking wardrobe makes it easy to stay in p.j.'s!! Every year on Christmas Eve our girls get a new pair of jammies and they were excited to show them off. Emree especially enjoys "striking a pose."

For FHE one night our girls made gingerbread houses. Morgan and Emree also made some at school so our counter was overcome with their creations. Having five made it hard to sneak and throw them away. There was quite a void left on the countertop!
Emree was the one who let us know that we needed to for sure save her's. So far she hasn't notice them gone!

Here's our latest belly shot! Ross, I think I'm starting to pass you up. I saw your tummy on Blake's birthday photo's and you look great! Hopefully the last three months will be good to me, but that is very unlikely. I'm just hoping that Berkley doesn't weigh in over 9 lbs! Only time will tell!

We hope you all have a very safe holiday and want to wish you a Happy New Year! We look forward to seeing some pics of your family from your new camera Jean! You need to take a pic of Cassy and Grandma and post it so that we can see the growth spurt that has taken place!
We are having an 80's New Year's Eve party that Brackon has planned so we'll be sure to share pics. If any of you have any ideas of how to dress a pregnant lady in 80's I'd really appreciate it. We all know that there is NO WAY that I am going to climb into a pair of leggings at this point. I really feel that I should be excempt from the party attire, but I guess that would make me a party pooper! Love you all!

Marcie, your tummy is not big at all, you look great. The girls jammies are so cute. I can tell Kennedy's are from Old Navy because I wanted that pattern but they only had smalls and extra- smalls. I feel huge, I was happy to hear I don't look as big as I feel. My hips are killing me. I just have to tell my self 9 more weeks.

It looks like you guys had a fun Christmas! Your girls are getting so tall, it makes me sad...don't let them grow up too much without us! You look great Marc! By that time, my face and everywhere else has filled out! Lucky!! Should we start a pool for Berkley's birth weight?? :)

We can hardly wait to see Berkley(sp?). We wish we were close to you so we could see you more often. Your gingerbread houses are so cute. You did a great job! Hope you enjoy the rest of your Christmas vacation. Love you.
