Christmas Has Arrived

It smells so good in here. Not sure if it is the tree or the candle that smells like Christmas tree that is burning. Who cares! It just smells like Christmas and I love that smell!

Thanksgiving in Merced

We headed to my parent's house for Thanksgiving on Wednesday with our good friends the Costello's. It was fun to see them and to see how big Liam is getting! We had a great time with my family and friends. I can't wait for Christmas time now to be with more family and friends! It all started with the best dessert Wednesday night-peach cobbler and Blue Bell Ice Cream all the way from the Lone Star State or the Promise Land as my parents call it.

Liam in his Christmas outfit. He's so cute and smiling a lot now.

Emmie-this is the pose she chose to do. Don't remember what she was eating...

This was the IT department that the guys set up. This is where they were most of the time!

Liam liked my dad. This was their bonding time until my dad said he thought Liam needed a diaper change:)

Annette and I on our Thanksgiving walk. This is how it works in the Nelson house. We eat at noon so dad can watch his Dallas Cowboys play and then the women go for a walk so we can eat pie during half time. You got to love working the holidays around football! Good thing I have never known anything different.

More Visitors-Steph and Suzie!

November has turned into the month of visitors. I have loved it because I have been having a rough 1st trimester so being with family and friends is always a good and helpful distraction when I am not feeling so great. Steph and Suzie came up from Santa Clarita for four days. It was so much fun to hang out with Steph and to see Suzie. Suzie is so big now and can say words and wave goodbye and blow kisses. It is just so precious for me to see this little girl and always remember that she is a gift from God. It is also fun to see one of my best friends as a mommy and really loving it. I am so thankful that Steph is one step ahead of me in this area so I can learn so much from her. Here are are attempts to try to take a good picture with a 1 year old!

She's only laughing because mommy is making fun faces behind the camera. Suzie is Steph's biggest fan, well besides her husband, Kyle:). I love how she thinks mommy is the funniest person in the world. I think Steph is funny too so Suzie and I agree she is pretty entertaining.

Thanks for coming to visit Steph and Suzie. I already miss both of you!

June Bug

Andrew and I are very excited to introduce to you the newest member of our family. As many of you know there has been a lot of waiting and praying for a baby and we are so overwhelmed with God's goodness to bless us. I am 9 weeks pregnant and we had our first official doctor's appointment today. Everything is looking good and we are just so thrilled to be parents. Please pray for the health of our baby and for me to endure through the first trimester of not feeling so great. We will definitely keep you posted throughout the months until our little June bug comes!

Birthday Weekend

This weekend my mom, sister, and I got together for our annual birthday weekend. We had a great time eating and shopping and then eating and shopping. Micah came along for the weekend-the only boy allowed! We had a great time and it is so fun that we have this special way to celebrate all of our birthdays together. Thanks Mom and Ang for a wonderful weekend!!!
