First of all, I got a new haircut the other day, as well as some highlights, which I'm very happy with! Here's a pic
of the new look:
Okay, here's the rundown on Christmas #4:
This was the Wolfe Christmas. Grandma sort of had an 'open house' feel for Christmas
this year. We went on the 25th for an excellent time of visiting with Uncle Henry, Grandma,
Grandpa, Uncle John, and Eleishia. It was very relaxing, and we even got to talk to Auntie
Lori on the phone for a few minutes.
This gathering was in Steinbach, which was a new thing for us, since Keith's grandparents
just moved there a few months ago. We enjoyed a huge spread for lunch! Meatballs,
cabbage rolls, chicken wings, chicken fingers, ham, potatoes, veggies, coleslaw, and on
and on! It was really yummy. Grandma always makes good food! We enjoyed a relaxing
afternoon of visiting and playing Phase 10. Unfortunately we had to leave early because
Christmas #6 was waiting for us back at home!
Thanks for everything Grandma & Grandpa!
Yes, it was really insane of us to fit in two gatherings in one day! Especially since we had to
drive 1 1/2 hours for the first one, and then home again! We arrived at my parents house for
the extended Thiessen gathering around 6 pm, just in time for supper! After a great potluck,
we visited with everyone, and things got interesting trying to decide who would host the next
gathering, for Easter. See, since Grandma died, all my dad's siblings that live in Manitoba take
turns hosting different gatherings. It was just getting a little bit confusing, and frustrating, so it
was decided that Heather (my little sister) would make a list, and if everyone was happy with
it, that's the plan for the next 3 years!
We did have some excellent dessert, thanks to Anutie Kathy and Auntie Anna! I think I ate too much...
(Disclaimer to those of you who wanted to hear this next part in person: I tried to call Amy K. and Anita (my cousin), but couldn't get a hold of you. I also couldn't find Auntie Brenda's phone number. Please know that I really wanted to tell you personally!)
SO, HERE'S WHAT YOU'VE ALL BEEEN WAITING FOR!! HAHA!!
The main reason why I'm finding it hard to think of what to post these days is because I have BABY on the brain!! That's right.... we are expecting our second child for August 6th! I've been so excited about it, and wanting to tell everyone, so I was just kind of waiting to post until I could say this!! We are a bit nervous about having two kids, but we are thrilled to have the chance!
I will post a belly picture (fully clothed, mind you!) on Monday, because then I will be 10 weeks. I'll try to post frequently, so you can see me change and get HUGE! So far, I feel pretty 'round' shall I say!! But I think a part of that is definately too much Christmas Dinner!! I guess we'll see!
Love you all!
