Before Christmas

Gavin and I are leaving for the airport in about 30 min. He is still napping so I thought I would hurry and post. My brother gets married tomorrow morning! I can't believe it, but I am so excited for him. I am especially excited to get to see all of my family today and then Zac's family on Friday! It definitely feels like the last few weeks have flown by! I was on the committee for our Ward Christmas Party and then I sang in the Choir Program and I have had book club, enrichment, laundry, shopping and a million other things, but I am ready to go!
We have been trying to help Gavin get the concept of Santa so he would at least see him at our Christmas Party. He didn't last long, but he actually sat on his lap.

On Monday we were able to go to an Avalanche game. It was so fun and they won 3 to 2 in the shootout. Zac's gave him tickets for box seats! Seriously, box seats! Zac was so excited he could barely contain himself of the way there. Gavin had a blast and has been talking about it since. He loved yelling with everyone and I appreciated that the box kept him a little more confined than regular seats. And considering it was an hour and half past his bedtime he was a trooper.

We hope everyone has a Wonderful Christmas!

22 Weeks

Well, I guess I better do a small pregnancy update. I haven't thrown up in a week! Hooray! I am really happy about that. Although, the nausea is still around for now, but hopefully that will go away soon. This little boy likes to kick a lot, just like Gavin did. So we will see if he comes out just as active. We are really hoping for a calmer child this time around, but we will just be happy if he is healthy. I am struggling with how much earlier my belly has shown this time around. I don't mind looking pregnant, it just makes me worried about how big I will be by the end.
I have a lot more back pain this time around, but I think that is mostly due to my active two year old, who wants me to walk around holding him every time we are at the store. Gavin really hates his car seat now. About half the time he will get in and the other half he screams his head off and fights me. Which means that I end up with one leg on top of him to hold him down while I buckle him in. (I am sure this is quite a site to see in the parking lot). Hopefully no one thinks I am an abusive parent.
This is actually at 21 weeks.

Last Saturday Zac took Gavin out to play in the snow for a few minutes. Gavin thought it was SO cool. Zac was just cold. It looks like we are going to have to buy him some snow pants. Everytime we walk outside he says, "SNOW!" Like he is so surprised it is there. It makes me laugh everytime.

I am almost done with Christmas Shopping, just a few more things to get. And only a week and half until Gavin and I leave town. I seriously can't believe that Christmas is only 2 weeks away. What happened to the time?
