Snow Day

We were surprised to wake up this morning to lots and lots of snow!!! Jack has been wanting it to snow for weeks so he can play in the snow!
I am suppose to be taking it easy but couldn't resist going out to play with Jack in the snow and having a snowball fight! It was a blast!
After we warmed up with Jax favorite-hot chocolate!
Then Jack was lucky enough to get to go out with Daddy and build a snowman when he got home from work!!

I have been having a few problems the last few weeks of my pregnancy. Nothing too serious. I have been having headaches and stuff and now high blood pressure. So doctor took me off work and ordered me to take it easy and rest.

He also did a sonogram to check that fluid levels and everything were good- they were. He let me see Ava's face and confirmed that she is definitely a GIRL!! Here is the picture he gave me- this shot makes her look like she has had lip injections or something! They are huge!! Is this my baby or one of Angelina's babies???

Anyway- of course I think she is adorable and it was exciting to get to take a peek at her.

I go back to the doctor on tuesday and if I am still feeling crummy we are going to schedule the induction. Doctor really wants to try to get me to 39 weeks though which would be next friday.

We are ready- that's for sure!!

Happy Birthday Becky!! 11.22.77

I get the priveledge of sharing my birthday with one of the kindest, most loving and most unselfish people I know. My twin sister, Becky.
We've been best friends now for 31 years and I couldn't imagine my life without her! Not only is she a wonderful sister and friend but over the past 3 years she has proven to be a fun, loving and caring aunt to Jack. He absolutely adores her as well!
She gave me a gift last night as we celebrated our birthday at Biaggi's that was full of pictures from our childhood. Unfortunately my scanner isn't working so I took pictures of the pictures. The quality is poor but I just love looking back at these pics!!
Happy Birthday Sister! I love you more than you'll ever know!!

Happy Fall Ya'll!!

We found "Mr. Turtle" walking across the road at the park! We kept him for a few hours but then put him back where we found him.

Don't you just love fall pictures. The colors are so pretty. Jack didn't particularly like the leaves- they hurt him. But I bribed him with a trip to the park and ice cream!!

Did you Vote?

In the past I have never been interested in politics and have never voted before. This year was the first time that I voted. I have to say- it felt really good. It's good to know that I did my part. Although I think Mark and I cancelled each other's vote out. :) Oh well.
Hope you are all able to get out and vote today! Tonight will be an exciting night as we find out who our next president will be!

Family Time

We had a great weekend up in Lake Zurich with my family. My nephew Oliver was being dedicated on Sunday and my brother had his family and Amy's family up on Saturday for food and fellowship. It was a great time. We shopped and visited and enjoyed the service yesterday. Sky preached and it was awesome. Little Oliver is so loved! He is such a happy little guy.
We had a blast! No pictures to post though- I didn't take my camera- can you believe it!?
