a little more christmas...

a little tea party with frog. she also had her baby and gorilla bank at the table.

Christmas dinner. Right before we had a big orange juice spill.

We had a great Christmas. It was just the three (almost 4) of us, and was a nice, relaxed day. Maggie was so excited for everything, but was especially excited for the chocolate. She really liked opening presents, and it was fun for us to watch her. We mostly just relaxed during the day. We had a ham, mashed potatoes, green beans, fruit salad (with whipped cream) and rolls. I was excited to use as much butter as I wanted to, and I did.
We missed family, but hopefully this baby will be here soon, and we will see them then.
Maggie was looking out the window this morning saying "baby sister? where are you?".
Yesterday we took all our Christmas stuff down and totally cleaned the downstairs so that we will be ready when baby sister decides she is ready to join us. So now we wait...

Maggie and baby sister

Maggie is starting to talk more and more about "baby sister". When we were at Costco a couple of weeks ago, she was talking about how baby sister would sit next to her in the cart, and there are other times when she is talking and it takes me a minute to realize what she is saying, and she is telling me something about baby sister. It is really sweet.
Speaking of "baby sister" I am anxious for her arrival. I am occasionally terrified at the thought of having two children, but mostly excited. We only have a few weeks left, and I feel it...

Latest Happenings

Well, we had a great thanksgiving split between the Creason and Olps families, with some Miltenbergers and Fergusons thrown in...
We drove up to Helena on day 1, and got to spend a little time with Uncle Rich and Aunt Katrina and Addie and Jeromy and kids. Check out Lucille's blog for pics. The drive was great. We have a van now (with a dvd player), and plenty of room in the back to pack without restrictions... The weather was beautiful both driving days, and we were entertained by listening to Harry Potter on CD while Maggie watched movies in the back.
We had a wonderful time, but it was too short, and we wish we could have seen more friends!
Unfortunately my camera ran out of battery power (sometimes I miss the old days of film...)
So this is the only picture I have.
