All of my cousins on my dads side were in town last night. It was so nice to see all of them and I sure wish we were able to get together a lot more than once a year. Also wish Peyton was feeling better so that we could have stayed and visited with them longer.
I am now able to share some layouts I created for my mom for Christmas. Here are some of my favorites.

Luckily for you guys the picture from yesterday is blurry and you can't see my bellybutton poking out! It's so gross! My Dr. just laughed when I asked him if it was normal as I feel like its going to burst open!
Hope everyond is healthy and doing better than we are at out house. Peyton woke up in the middle of the night miserable with a high temp, Chris was up at the same time puking and my throat hurt and I thought my sinuses were going to burst from so much congestion pressure!

My mom was a life saver today and watched Peyton so I could go to my appointment. He has had a temp for a couple days now and a horrible cough and is a sick little baby. I feel so bad for him and hope the temp breaks soon and he gets back to his normal happy self.
Chris painted the chest of drawers last weekend for the baby room band they look great! I was able to wash what little clothes I have and get them in drawers. We have a few fabrics chosen along with a quilt pattern and mom is getting started on the bed set. Slowly but surely I'll get there!
Still no names picked yet. A few we are seriously talking about, but nothing we both really like. Any suggestions?

Finally, here is the basket I made for my mom. Pretty much the same as Linda's but with 12x12 layouts as that's what size I've been scrapping for her.I also made little wash cloth wraps and sets of cards for both of my Grandma's but once again, didn't take pictures. Doesn't look like much, but boy, it sure took a while to get done!

Mommy: "Do you smell Mommy's lotion?"
Mommy: "Does it smell good?"
Peyton: "Ahuh, you smell yummy yummy Mommy!"
Isn't he sweet? I think he got the 'yummy' smelling from me commenting about some tarts I just got! He's just too darn cute these days and oh so sweet.
I am really looking forward to tonight and watching all the little cousins play together! We are so blessed to have a great family and to be able to spend time together!
I hope you are able to spend some time with family over Christmas and enjoy the time together!

I was able to get a few layouts done yesterday! I just love the Doodlebug Alpha stickers (brown loopy letters). They are only $2 a sheet and can be found on my Memory Works website (http://mustangkayla.memory-works.com). I'll definitely be ordering the other colors in.

Chris took off running and rolled in the snow. Sedona thought it was wrestling time and Peyton wasn't too sure what to think.
Chris's cousins gave us a slide and swing set. Thanks so much girls. Peyton LOVES them and kept saying 'Those for me...those for me?" He is requesting that Taylor and Hannah come over and play with him on them. So hopefully over Christmas break that will happen.

We have a layer of snow outside now and more forcasted for the weekend. My mom doesn't have school today so I'm hoping she can come over and help me go through baby stuff and finish up a project this morning.
Hope everyone has a great Friday!

Last night I woke up to Peyton giggling. He must have been having silly dreams. I asked him when he got up this morning if he had good dreams last night. He shook his head yes. So I asked him what they were about. He said 'about silly hippos'. Too cute! I couldn't help but giggle myself.
Yesterday I had a few errands to run and when I got in the truck it was 0 degrees! Holy toledo was it cold here.

We are going over to my moms tonight for a going away party for some close friends of family. So sad to see them move away, but glad they can move closer to their girls!

This morning we picked out our Christmas tree! YEAH!
The bum deal part is that at my Dr. appt. this morning I found out that I am borderline anemic and one point off from having gestational diabetes, which according to my doctor, almost always turns into gestational diabetes this far into the pregnancy. Urrghh....he told me to cut out all sugar. Of course I had to say 'you mean I need to cut back on my sweets I am eating'...one can always hope for the best right? Well, not so much luck as he said not at all. So I feel like throwing myself a pity party. But I can't really complain as I have a healthy baby so far and am not on bed rest. I'm blessed to have a nice warm home to sleep in at night. Right?
Here is a layout I did over the weekend. The picture of Peyton just cracks me up!
I've also gotta let ya know about these amazing tarts made by one of my friends, Kat. She has them listed on ebay. Oh my, are the just as delicious as can be. If your a candle lover you definitely need to try some of her tarts. Her ebay name is randis*closet, http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQsassZrandis*closet.

I have a few other projects I have been spending lots of time on but I can't post them yet as the people receiving them check out my blog! So after Christmas I'll have a ton of projects to share.

I had another ultrasound first thing this morning, this one being concentrated on the baby. We've confirmed that we are having a girl. According to her measurements she is due February 27th (not March 9th like we've been thinking). So they either have the date off or she is a big girl, or both! Peyton did pretty good during my ultrasound but was more interested in the toys than in the screen showing the baby.
Hope everyone has a wonderful Tuesday!
