It's here

Today is Dec. 11. While this date may not seem like anything, today is my daughter's due date. It's weird to think that after all that has happened, most of it wasn't "supposed" too. Silly Heavenly Father! I am so thankful for HIm, His plan, His love, His mercy. We have been blessed beyond measure and have been closer to Him thru this whole thing.
On a lighter note, I FINALLY have pictures of Isabel's room, all done, a little messy but done. She loves her flowers and shows everyone, and I mean everyone her flowers, she's so proud. **** I forgot to give credit to Cheyenne for helping me with the flowers! Sorry Cheyenne!****







This past week we also took Isabel to see Santa, she didn't like him much but she enjoyed the crafts that they made. Snowmen on a paint stirring stick that you put in the ground to measure snow fall, playdoh galore, and the pool filled with cotton. She also learned something new....


We also made cinnamon rolls for some friends and she is a little helper, when she can stay focused.




And lastly we went to a remembrance service at the funeral home and Katie babysat Isabel. They played piano, Isabel did a light show since she can reach all the light switches in their house and made graham cracker houses. This is Isabel's after the ride home, the roof fell in, but she loves it and still talks daily about it.


Last night our cousin Chelsea came over and had dinner with us. She is awesome and I loved having her come! We talked and talked all night. I have picture but this is getting long and there are SO many pictures to run thru. We did a 20 min photo shoot because it would be torture for Isabel to actually look at the camera and smile. So I'll post those in a day or so!

I was so caught up in my end of the term crunch yesterday (everything was due at 5:00pm) that I didn't call. It was on my mind, too.
On the other hand, it's about time you post those pics! Though I guess I will see those flowers in person in a few days. Along with someone to show them to see over and over. It will be so much fun to see her in person rather than waiting for you to post pictures. And I am still telling people about the excited call I got from Isabel on Monday. That was such a pick-me-up.

Like the flowers. Girls are fun that way. It's harder to be cute with boys. oh well.

Aw, shucks, Tracy. You only need to give me credit for helping you leave a project unfinished. You're the one who made it presentable ;)
