it's a GIRL!!!!!!!
before you go, "oh, i knew she couldn't wait till christmas!"
hear me out... today is my papa's 91st birthday and the whole
rogers side of the family were alllllll at my parents house.
we were all together and enjoying a great family night and we thought
it was a perfect time and to share it on a special day.
so...there you have it! jordan is in a house full of girls!

our dr. signed the pink side with, "merry christmas, john"
we really like our dr. now lets just see if he is right. he told us he is a little paranoid
(since his brother got it wrong last pregnancy) he is double checking at 36 weeks, lol!

well.....i would like to know too!
at our appointment today the dr. will write a smiley face on the pink or blue shape
and seal it in the envelope. (i wonder if it will be right this time)
we will open it up on christmas morning to find out.
it will be sooooo hard to not take a peak at the appointment, but this will be more fun!

thanksgiving 2010 in okc

Friday, December 17, 2010

i realized i never posted pics from thanksgiving, better late than never!
this was our attempt for a family pic(i know how you feel sarah)

paytie helped a lot before dinner. she was beating the eggs for the dressing the old fashion way.

she ate way too many olives before dinner and daddy had to talk to her about it.
after dinner she sat on nana's lap and ate spoonfulls of whipcream!

my first pecan pie, i take an empty pie plate was a success.

early christmas with great grandmother nannie.
she got a whole treasure chest of princess gowns and jewelry.


first cookie exchange

i went to my first cookie exchange at dionne's home.
it was a fun girl evening filled with laughs and yummy goodies, that i brought home.
check out those adorable strawberries. they are a coconut type cookie then rolled in strawberry gelatin. thanks, dionne


surprise visitors

lisa and layla surprised us on their way from okc to san antonio last week.
paytie was so happy to play with layla.
thanks for the visit, lisa!


picky or not?

Wednesday, December 8, 2010

we went to our neighbors to deliver their christmas card
and ask for a tomato for our quiche and this is what it looked like by the time we got home.
i don't like to admit this, but paytie is a picky eater at this stage, but for some reason she will eat a tomato like an apple?

gotta love plumbing problems during the christmas season!
well...at least it wasn't in the thousands like mr. plumber said would be the next step.

oh, 60 year old cast iron pipes. is this a reason people buy large new homes for the price of smaller old homes?


christmas is up

Wednesday, December 1, 2010

decorations have actually been up for about 3 weeks. i was pretty excited to
get things out!

we moved our picture wall into the living room

payton loves our german christmas pyramid. this is special to us,
we bought it when we lived there in 2005.

this is our new advent calendar. our friends from church gave us these little
mittens from his days at starbucks(they were gift card holders). i asked for a few and i got 3,000!
i'll be stuffing them each night with either a bible verse, stickers or a little treat for our little miss.

i am waiting to receive our first christmas card of the season.....who's it going to be?
