I love the first real snowfall of the season. It always makes me giddy. And it's fun that Kayla shares that same feeling. I get out with the kids to play as often as possible, but it gets tough, cuz the babies only last like 10 minutes (on a good day) Still, it's always worth it:)

Merry Christmas everyone!! Anyone who is a parent knows just how difficult it is to get family pictures with all the kids actually looking at the camera. It has NEVER happened for me. I won't give up though:) Christmas time has all the extra pressure too, with the hope of giving out cards and photos with perfectly posed kids. So... here's my best attempt.
Grandma Campbell was wonderful, as always, and bought all the grandkids some beautiful Christmas outfits. The pictures don't do them justice. I know I'm biased, but they were all so gorgeous. I feel so lucky to have such awesome kiddos.
I'll keep trying...

I know, I know. It's been almost 3 months since the last post. I have no valid excuse except for the little parasite I have growing in my belly. Speaking of the parasite (aka-baby) we had our 20 week ultrasound. Everything looks fantastic! Ultrasounds never cease to amaze me. Our little one had a perfect little heart, all 10 fingers and 10 toes. It was so fun to see. Also, some of you know that my original plan was to not find out the baby's gender, so instead I had the tech write it on a piece of paper and seal it in an envelope. My plan was to just show the grandparents because I could trust them to keep a secret. But.... the very next day Nick and I got so excited that we caved in and looked. And SURPRISE!!! It's a girl! We are so happy and excited. Poor Nick and Charlie, though... Way to much estrogen floating around for them. They'll have to just stick together I guess:)
Here's a few pics. The twins and their crazy sleeping positions, and Kayla showing off how fast she's growing up...
