Well hello there! It's been a while. Welcome back!
This Christmas season has gone by so fast I can't even believe Christmas is in 14 days. We don't even have our tree up yet! (me pulling my hair out...) However we have been listening to Christmas music since the middle of November. And when I say "We" I mean me. MacKay refused to listen to Christmas music until Thanksgiving is over. I on the other hand, think Christmas music is too amazing to only have 1 month to listen to it. So sue me. I love Christmas! (even if you wouldn't know it walking into my house. It's shameful, really.)
Anywho! This year we got our Christmas cards done early. We have some really exciting news, Check it out!:
(I ordered my Christmas card on Etsy. Go HERE for the Shop I ordered them at!)
The designer just so happens to be one of my friends as well, she is seriously amazing at designing! I gave her my thoughts and she made this! So much better than I had pictured in my head. I am thrilled with the design. I have also had so many compliments on the card, and people asking for the designer, so I am just jumping the gun and giving it to you now. You're welcome.
Alright, I guess the secret is out!
Yup, we have chickens!
hehe. Ok. Yes we are becoming a little family of 4! (holy smokes)
I get so excited/nervous/terrified out of my wits!
But don't forget. We are SO excited. Eek!!
Now that we have sent out our Christmas cards, and everyone should have them by now, we thought we should announce it to the internet. We are Pregnant!!!
Here is a little bit of info on this pregnancy:
I am currently almost 16 weeks(on Saturday) and have heard the little heartbeat twice! The first time we were all in the Dr's office (Me, MacKay and Brent) When Brent heard the strange and wonderful sound of the heartbeat he said really excitedly: "Choo-Choo?!" Brent is obsessed with Trains. So there ya have it. We are having a TRAIN! (;
We will find out the gender in 4 weeks, and we couldn't be more excited. With Brent, we waited until he was born to find out what gender he was. But this one we both agreed we wanted to know. MacKay thinks it is a girl. I think it is a boy. We shall see.
Brent pats my growing belly a lot saying "Baby!" and gives him kisses. (yes, I said HIM, I am 80 % sure it is a boy.) hehe
I am just getting past the sick stage, however I still have the terrible gagging reflex and will occasionally throw up because I am brushing my teeth. It's as terrible as it sounds.
I am showing a lot more than I was with Brent, but have only gained 1 pound. How does that work?!
We get to go on a cruise in January, and I BARELY made the cut off! WHEW! MacKay's work is sending us on a Western Caribbean Cruise. It has been in the planning for 2 years, so when we found out I was pregnant, that was one of the first things I checked. "Can I still go on the cruise?!" I will be 21 weeks, and the cut off is 24. So we are so excited about that! Although, it's funny. I was working my butt off to get in shape for this cruise, and I will be a shape for sure! Just not what I thought I would be! haha! We had to buy some more swim suits to accommodate for the growing belly, but it was fun, I got to shop more! hehe.
Yes, this was a bit of a surprise, but we are welcoming it with open arms, and cannot wait to find out what we are having.
Thanks for all your support and kind words already! (:
Oh, and here is my first pregnancy photo! Yes, I'm huge, you don't have to tell me. (;
XOXO- Shanna (AKA soon to mama of 2, holy cow!)
