Snow Fun!

We had a big snowfall right after Thanksgiving and Kate and Daddy took advantage of the good packing snow!  Check out the two making snow angels and Kate's very first snowman.  It warmed up over the next few days so Frosty melted rather quickly.  I was surprised that Kate wasn't more upset since every morning she would get up and say "Hi" to him.

Thanksgiving Weekend

We had so much fun with Sara's family here over Thanksgiving weekend - Thanks everyone for making the trip to CO. I think we may have set a record for the number of games of Settlers played in a 3 day span. (Note: Uncle Bernie finally won at the Derdowski residence)

Kate thoroughly enjoyed the zoo on Wednesday and of course the day wouldn't be complete without a few rides on the carousel.

Turkey Day was celebrated with the 2nd Annual Touch Football Game and wouldn't have been played properly without a few injuries to its participants. Hope your finger (Aunt Leona) and big toe (Uncle Bernie) feel better soon!

Kate "ate" her traditional turkey leg for Thanksgiving dinner - Look at the difference a year makes!

Let It Snow!

We woke up this morning to a pleasant surprise - it was snowing! We ended up with about three inches by the time it stopped, but most of it melted by the afternoon.

Kate got all decked out in her snow gear to enjoy a good romp. She had a little bit of a hard time walking since she was so bundled, but she managed not to fall over. She was actually unsure about the snow at first, but eventually warmed up to it! We heard all afternoon about walking in the snow & how she made a snowball and caught it.

We are hoping for a big snow over Thanksgiving so she can go sledding with Uncle Bernie, Aunt Leona, Zio Brian, Zia Rita, and Grammy. Only 10 more days according to Kate's official countdown calendar.

We're Here In 3D ....

Appointment Update (28 Weeks):

Abigail and Eveline cooperated (sort-of) for 3D pictures. It is amazing what you can see with technology. Baby A kept putting her hand over her face and Baby B frowned if the perinatologist would jiggle her too much.

I have gained 35 lbs. so far and am measuring 35 weeks pregnant. Baby A now weighs 2 lbs. 12 oz. and Baby B weighs 2lb. 11 oz. The perinatologist was really pleased that Baby B had gained so much weight and had caught up with her sister. No wonder I have been getting more uncomfortable - there is a lot of baby in there. The Dr. said the only room for them to grow now is out! I have resigned myself to the fact that I will be quite a sight to behold by the time they get here.

We are so thankful that all of us are doing so well and that it is only a few more days until the reinforcements arrive (Yeah Grammy!)
