The BIG SECRET is finally out!

Can you guess what it is?

This cute pic says it all!

That's right, Gracie will soon be a Big sister! Woo Hoo! We have decided we have waited long enough and are ready for our world to be turned upside down one more time. lol.

We are excited to announce baby #2 is on his/her way! Doris is 12 weeks (3months) pregnant. So come this July, we will welcome a brand new baby to our family. Gracie is already pumped about being a BIG sister. She is already telling us she is going to feed it, put it in the carrier, and take her/him to the park. What a sweet girl! Gracie is constantly patting mommy's tummy and asking when the baby is coming out? She even told her daddy to be careful and not jump on mommy's tummy because there is a baby in there! What a smart cookie. She will definitely be mommy's little helper!

The BIG day is July 12, but there is a fairly good chance this baby will come a couple of weeks early if mommy has blood pressure problems at the end of the pregnancy again. The doctor says there is absolutely nothing we can do to prevent this from happening. The body is going to react to the baby how it wants to. And since Doris's mom had blood pressure issues with all 3 of her pregnancies, her chances are much higher. Boo! So we are keeping our fingers crossed that he/she does not come too early so they can be as healthy as possible! Please keep us in your prayers. We will keep everyone posted.

We feel extremely blessed and can't wait to meet this new little person!

Gracie has breakfast with Santa!

We got up early this Saturday morning to head down for our 2nd annual chicken and Santa at Chick-fil-a, and chickens there were a plenty (a.k.a Gracie, Isaac, and Emma)! All three toddlers screamed and held on to their mommies for dear life. Gracie wouldn't even look over the booth at Santa because there was a big cow. So we decided to warm them up by eating breakfast close to Santa so they could watch the other kids sit on Santa's lap. Finally after eating breakfast, getting a balloon, and playing on the awesome playscape together, they decided to give Santa a try. Two out of three toddlers decided the big guy in the red suit was not too scary as long as their mommies stayed close by. They pretty much have a love-hate relationship with Santa at this point. Oh well! Maybe next year they will love this jolly ol St. Nick.

I'm sitting here for my mommy, but I don't like it!

Get me out of here!
