It's a GIRL!!!

We had our big ultrasound on Monday, and it looks like we're having another sweet baby GIRL. We are SO excited!!! I have to say the suspense of not finding out during the ultrasound about KILLED me!!! I found out 2 1/2 hours after the ultrasound. I know that's not very long, but it felt like an eternity!!!

After the ultrasound we met my parents, Gracie and Emily (of course), Papa Bryan and Aunt Bill for lunch at Abuelos. I've been craving mexican food like I did with the girls!!! We had such a fun lunch. Mom's only request was that no one order anything that took long to cook. LOL!!! We finished up lunch, and Kris and I headed to Sweet Memories to pick up the 2 cakes. (One was pink with white icing. The other was blue with white icing.) We gave them the card that the ultrasound tech filled out and they placed it on the correct cake. The drive back to mom's house seemed like it took hours!

Mom had everything set up when we arrived at her house, and we cut the cake right away!!! We were so excited to see the pink. So much fun!!!! (In a tormenting kind of way!)

We will be naming this sweet little girl ADDISON CORRIE. Addison- because we like it. Corrie- after my grandmother (Addison's due date also falls on her birthday.) I'm not sure if we'll call her Addie or just Addison. Time will tell!

Happy 7th Birthday Gracie!

I can't believe my sweet baby girl is 7 years old now!!! Gracie received a new laptop for her birthday this year, so we decided to have a "family day" instead of a big party. We began our day at Chuck E. Cheese (or Chuckle Cheese as Emily calls it!) Afterwards we headed to the mall so Gracie could spend her gift card she received from Nana and Papa. We ended the day at the movies watching Toy Story 3. We all LOVED the movie!!! It was such a fun day, and Gracie said it was the best birthday ever. YAY!!!

Grandma and Grandpa came Saturday afternoon to pick the girls up for a little birthday shopping and dinner for Gracie's birthday. Gracie got a new bike with a kickstand AND a basket. AWESOME! She also got an i-Carly video camera. And, of course, Emily got a little something too!!! Thanks Grandma and Grandpa for all you do!!!!
On Sunday Gracie and I sat down at the computer so she could spend her Toys R Us gift card from Uncle Kevin, Aunt Laura, Beth and Jacob. I offered to take her to the store, but she REALLY wanted to shop online. Don't know who she learned that from?? HA! She ended up getting free shipping. W00-Hoo!!! She picked out a new Nintendo DS game, a wig, a craft kit and two packages of glitter pens!!!! Thanks guys!!!! You made her day! :-)

Grimes County Fair

This morning we loaded up and headed to the Grimes County Fair. We had some VERY sweet friends (Jennifer and Brandi) who asked Gracie and Emily if they wanted to help show their animals. Of course the girls wanted to. These girls LOVE animals. They were supposed to show pigs, lambs and goats. But, due to the HORRIBLE weather, they only showed pigs. They didn't seem to mind--though Emily REALLY wanted to show a lamb!!! (The pics aren't great. I used my "purse" camera.)

The girls were all decked out in their cowgirl gear. Emily was so excited to wear her "cow" boots.

Emily with her piggy trophy. She was so proud.

This pic is SOOO blurry, but it's the only decent one I got when Emily was showing. That girl was ALL OVER the arena!!! Poor piggy---Emily was not shy with the "whoopin' stick!!!!!"

Gracie did very well. Very CALM with the pig. She laughed because the pig got pee on her. HA!!! Brandi is in the black shirt. She was SOOO sweet to help the girls like she did.

We had SO much fun watching them!!
