What we've been doing

The Huffman kids came over to play last week and we had so much fun!

The Week

Lunch with Aaron last Friday
I completely forgot that a week ago today we had "snow" because within 48 hours it was 75 degrees!  Abigail's teacher let the kids go outside for two minutes to experience the snow and get a picture.  Aaron didn't get to go out.  

But they were soooo excited to go out when they got home.
Abigail's Snow Angel.  She came in after 30 minutes, but I eventually had to force Aaron inside.
Lunch with Aaron on Monday
On Tuesday he got sealants on his teeth and don't let this brave face fool you, he does not do well at the dentist!
I had lunch with Abigail that day
Aaron asked me to stay and have lunch with him again.  He was still a bit shaky from the dentist.

Abigail made gingerbread cookies


Today we are 37 weeks pregnant with Andrew!  We are seeing the doctor every three days now to have fluids checked and monitoring his movements closely!  His delivery is officially scheduled for January 30, but our doctor doesn't think we will make it that long, so we are just in a waiting game.  Everything is ready for his arrival!

Back to Life

 We had a very low key New Years.  On New Year's Eve morning we had breakfast at Cracker Barrell and then bought some rocking chairs for our front porch.  We had been planning to get them before we found out we were having Andrew and then we bought nursery furniture instead!  But my boss gave me a really nice Visa Gift Card for Christmas and they were on sale so it worked out beautifully.


After breakfast Grandad came over with Christmas gifts.  Aaron got Walkie Talkies and the kids love them!  They can use them several blocks away from the house and still be heard perfectly, so it's so fun.

And Abigail got a scooter that she has been riding incessantly.  It is seriously crazy how obsessed she is. 

New Year's Day was church and hanging at the house

 Abgiail wearing slippers Kim's friend made for her a while ago.  And a nightgown that used to be mine.
 The day before the kids go back to school is usually a really fun last day of break, but we spent this one getting ready for Andrew while Abigail scootered and Aaron played outside.  Hospital bag is packed and in the car, car seats installed, etc.  Less than three weeks to go!
 Lunch with Sis this week

 Getting her haircut

 She loved her braid and glitter!
 My husband randomly leaves me Southern Living recipes on the kitchen counter.  I finally got around to making this one.  Candied bacon sweet potatoes.  Yum.  The kids ate this up!

Friday, December 30, 2016


Today has been the first day of Christmas Break that we haven't left the house at all.  Usually we don't leave much so this has been unusual.  The kids are loving be home and in their PJs.  Sis wanted to bake so she found a cupcake recipe in her Strawberry Shortcake book and did it mostly all by herself!  She just loves this stuff!









Christmas Break

We've had so much fun over the holidays!  I love having the kids home and I just adore their ages!

 This was from the day we went to Trains at Northpark.  We ate lunch at Bread Winners and it was great!  The kids' menus were inside children's books that the kids could read after they ordered.  Genius!


Baking cookies for Santa


We went to Christmas Wish at Chick-Fil-A on the 23rd


Baking Christmas Morning Bread in her swimsuit and underwear on Christmas Eve. Her dressing for December was the red velvet dress she wore to church that night. On Christmas Day she wore a black velvet dress to church.
 Finished his Hover Tank from his grandparents!

Painting up a storm!
 Decked out in her new stuff!
 Seeing Moana on the day after Christmas at the Dine In Theatre

 She didn't Dress for December this day so she wore her new Frozen PJs to bed with the snowflakes on them.  I count that!
 I loved this display Jory did this year


On the 27th Jory was hunting and I took the kids to lunch at Spring Creek with a gift card I have had for a LONG time
 Sis LOVES corn on the cob


That night we went to 12 Days of Christmas at Night at the Arboretum.  The kids love this!!!



Aaron loves the map and leading us through the displays
