Walk for Life - West Coast

we went to the Walk for Life - West Coast this past Saturday in San Francisco... I have been going since 2005 (the first year) and have only missed one year - I have enjoyed going while pregnant, while nursing, and now with two kiddos :) Mom and Dad surprised us and joined in the walk!! What a treat! There was a major rain down-pour right at the beginning of the walk, but then the skies cleared and it was a gorgeous day in the city. Here we are in the midst of the walk - right after the rain cleared up - I am holding the blanket and poncho that I had rigged up around Luke to keep him warm and dry!

You can sort-of see the amount of people from this picture... upwards of 30,000 +
(Luke was singing)

Mom and Dad treated us to an anniversary dinner of chippino ... awesome!

Luke being cute

we were on the look-out for a booster seat/big boy seat for Luke (since the baby will be occupying the high chair in the near future) ... we found this awesome (and very clean) seat at a yard sale for $1
(obviously it will usually be used at the table, not quite sure why he was on the floor facing the kitchen cupboards) ... anyway, Luke has been as cute as ever lately - during his time reading stories before bed with daddy tonight he requested his milk cup ... when I asked why (this isn't normal) Greg said that Luke had "Santa envy" because they were reading a Christmas book and in it Santa got milk and cookies... apparently he needed his milk to read through the story as well - cute kid (and hey, at least he wasn't asking for cookies right before bed, too!)

update on baby #2 - we are about 30 weeks along and getting very excited/nervous :) baby moves a lot, which I LOVE!!! and I am getting big, but not too huge yet... I am measuring right on and we are really pleased with our doctor. we are planning on a VBAC, while at the same time putting all of our labor and delivery concerns in the Lord's very capable hands! I have been on a crazy nesting spree lately - organizing nearly every room in the house top to bottom - although I don't believe that means I am going into labor anytime soon... with Luke I wanted to clean (not organize) - and I have definitely put off cleaning the last couple days ...

Christmas Morning

This is the second year in a row we have been blessed with waking up at our house on Christmas morning, just the three of us (well, the four of us - counting baby inside me this year!!) ... what a wonderful morning :)

(the pictures are in reverse order - sorry)

opening presents (thanks uncle Francis and aunt Gail!)

our little tree

he was more excited to see the tree - he didn't even notice the presents

catching up...

here's a picture from when Luke and I were getting out Christmas decorations and it started snowing outside!!
