Poor Old Blue

Of all the many cars I've owned, my truck was by far my favorite. But she was getting older and needing some work (don't we all?) So many tears were shed when we traded her in.

Now meet Frieda. She is German. Sie ist sehr hübsch, ja? (That means she's a looker.)

Our happy dilemma: how to fit three car seats in there.

Anatomy 101

My girls know that in a couple of months we'll get to have an ultrasound and find out the gender of their new little sibling. Pea's instructions to her sister on how to interpret the results, "If it has a pink dress, it's a girl." Makes sense to me!

While on the subject, Rae solemnly informed her sister that she wouldn't have much time to play with her when the baby came, because she would be far too busy helping Mama and Daddy with him.

A Peek

Our 11~week old baby!

Raegan insists on having a baby brother; Morgan says, "No, it's a 'her'!" Guess we'll find out in a couple months...

Here's to new beginnings and new ventures! I love a clean slate, a fresh start. And while most of my resolutions fizzle out in a couple months, I am hoping to spend more precious time with family and friends. Maybe I'll even blog a little more often (sheepish grin). But don't hold me to it!

How about a sneak peak of one of my new ventures? I began a class a few weeks ago to learn a new "skill". I am so excited to say that I designed this and made it entirely with my own two hands. Can you guess what it might be? I'll give you a hint: it isn't finished yet, but when it is I'll wear it on my wrist.

May each of you have a wonderful new year, full of unexpected blessings and surprises!
