In the meantime, here's a slideshow of pictures from my Mom's Club Christmas party. We had a Santa Claus from the fire department come hand out presents to all the kids. We had to buy a present beforehand for our own child so we could give it to the Santa to hand out. I actually got what Trent had already asked Santa for. It was a $6 monster truck from Walgreens! Easy enough. So Trent was a happy guy. I had a bag full of stuff that I was going to set out for him (from Santa) on Christmas day, but I went off and left it at our house! Dang it! So I had to improvise with some replacement shopping today. I'll give the other stuff to him for his birthday. Anyway, here's the slideshow...

I love the choreography!
The high note in this one is priceless! "...and it's all about yooooouuuuuuuu!" And check out the choreography on the part that says, "...make the holiday swell". So freakin' cute!

And...Oh my word, could it be? Even though Trent is getting a little bit sick with a cough and runny nose, we had to go out this morning and throw some snowballs. It's been a while since we've been able to do that, and I'm not even sure if he remembers Colorado at all!

And the girl, I must say, is adorable! Her forehead is a little large (probably from the picture of me), but other than that, how cute is she?!
P.S. I got a memory stick adapter today, so expect pictures soon!

Weight: 16 lbs. 13 ozs. (90th percentile)
Height: 25 inches (50th percentile)
Head circumference: 42 cm (50th percentile)
Whew! He's not quite as chubby as Trent was, but he's still gearing up to be a chunky little booger! Everything else checked out just fine. He had his 4 month immunizations, and of course he cried when he got them, but he was fine about a minute later.
In Trent news, I scheduled his 5th (yes, FIVE!!) birthday party at Jump N Jungle on January 3. I can't believe I have a 5 year old. Crazy.
I still don't have a memory stick adapter. I have checked at 3 different places, and none of them sells just the adapter. They all sell the adapter WITH the memory stick. I already have a memory stick...I need an adapter. I think Fry's Electronics has just an adapter, so I'll go there as soon as I get a chance. And then I can share some pictures of my growing boys!

We just bought this camera! We went to Circuit City since they're closing, and we got a pretty good deal on a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W170 in black. Here's the stats on it: 10.1 megapixel, 2.7" Clear Photo LCD display, Carl Zeiss wide 5x (28mm) Optical Zoom lens, Smile Shutter technology, Face Detection, Intelligent Scene Recognition, Super SteadyShot, HD output and HD slideshow
Pretty fancy. The Smile Shutter is supposed to find smiles when you're taking pictures--and you can set it to find any smile or to focus on a child's smile or an adult's smile. I'm not quite sure if that technology will come in handy for us, but I just thought that was pretty cool! The only downside is that we weren't sure if the memory stick we had to buy (we had an SD card in our old camera) had a corresponding slot on our computer. Sure enough, it doesn't, but I think we can get an adapter for it. Anyway, I have felt lost the past 72 hours without our camera so I am so excited to have one again! Our memories are saved!

Still faint, but definitely there.
And now instead of a pregnancy test, I am staring at this beautiful face.
The second picture was last weekend in Dallas before the a$$-kicking we suffered by the hands of the Oklahoma Sooners. (You know why Texas doesn't fall off in the Gulf of Mexico? Cuz Oklahoma SUCKS!) But I'm not bitter. Ok, yes, I am. I'm more heartbroken than anything. It literally hurts. I was so certain that this was our year to take it all. But it's okay. We'll live.
We've had a lot going on--again--the last week or so, which is why I haven't posted anything lately. Obviously, there's a shuttle in space right now so Aaron has had to work weird hours lately because they have to have someone from their office on console at all times. Luckily, this time he only had to work one overnight shift. Trent's class had their Thanksgiving feast last Friday before the Thanksgiving break. I got to help out with it since I am one of the "class moms". The kids were so excited and surprisingly, most of them filled themselves up on all the healthy stuff they had for lunch, so they didn't have much room for dessert! Here's a few pics from that day...
Trent and I made this t-shirt--it's not the prettiest thing in the world, but we had fun!
Last weekend, we trekked up to the Dallas area for one of Aaron best friend's (Nate) wedding reception. Nate and Angel got married in October in Curacao, so obviously not everyone could make it. So Nate's parents, who live in Coppell, had a reception for them at their house. Since many of the people in attendance are Texas Tech alumni, it mostly turned into a game watching party--which ended up putting a damper on the happiness we were supposed to be feeling for Nate and Angel, but we all ended up inebriated enough that we didn't care about the game anymore.

And a video of some sweet little sounds! He kind of spaces out at the end. I guess something caught his attention.
Here's a very sweet video of Trent reading "Winnie the Pooh and Tigger Too" to Drew. He's not really reading the words, but he's heard the story so many times, he pretty much knows it by heart. There's a better one, but it was kind of long, so it would take forever to upload.
