To say Macy was a bit unhappy would be an understatement. I only wish I had a picture of her face when we told her that her sister was actually going to be a brother. She quickly regained composure and decided a boy wouldn't be too bad.
Due to an unexpected trip to the OB/GYN we found out earlier than expected what was cooking in the oven. While I honestly didn't have a preference....I must admit that daddy is happy.
Well....Crystal's next appt. is Dec. 29. The next scheduled photo session is in late January.

Being at home does have it's advantages....like getting to spend time with Macy. We went to Tryst Falls park this morning to play on the jungle gym and I took the opportunity to snap a few pics. I have driven by this little park for the past six years and never pulled in. It's really neat, with the waterfall being the whole point of it. She already wants to go back, so maybe I can get some more pics when the trees turn green.

The Christmas Cards have all been stuffed and addressed. We have a James family high of 58 this year.....seems like I should know more than 58 people. But on the up side, it saves me money on stamps! I really wanted to take a good picture of Macy and make our own cards (like everyone else on the face of the planet does) , but I couldn't get her to pose to save my hide. I even tried bribery, but soon realized she already has everything.
The coming week has us preparing for Macy's Christmas program at church, which is Saturday at 6pm. She will be in the choir dressed as a sheep. Now I just need to figure out how to teach a 5 year old 7 songs in 6 days. Next weekend also brings us another round of rifle hunting for deer...seems how the sausage went over so well, we need some more meat!

We had the pleasure of lighting the first advent candle at church this morning, which was great. Macy will be performing in the Christmas program as a member of the choir. This means we have about five symphony length songs to teach her in the next two weeks. Lucky for us she likes to sing.

Today is national turkey day, so we're off to Chillicothe to celebrate at my moms house. Tomorrow we jump back in the car to have dads family dinner at Mary's house. We actually went to Crystals family dinner last Sunday to make room for it all. The joys of having divorced parents.....
Yesterday we went to the OB-GYN for Cris' twelve week check-up. Everything was good and we got to hear a heartbeat. Macy thinks it sounded like a little sister heart, but I'm not painting the walls pink yet. For those who don't yet know, the baby is due June 18th.
Well, Happy Thanksgiving to all...and we hope everyone survives Black Friday.
