Baby News

We have officially scheduled an induction for the 19th!  So if little Campbell isn't born before then, he will- Lord willing- be born on Wednesday, Dec. 19th!!!  And we are so grateful to my mom who will be coming up to stay with the girls while we are in the hospital.  Please keep us in your prayers.  We are very excited and ready to meet our son, but there are always so many unknowns- even when you induce. 

Merry Christmas to you all if I don't write again before then!

I don't have a picture of this, but today was our first snow flurry during the day!  We have supposedly had some snow at night already, but we haven't seen any until today.  Taylor was beside herself with excitement!  It is always fun to see what kinds of simple things can make this girl soooo happy. :)

Creating Memories

Once again, I messed up and you have to look at the next set of picture first, then these. Sorry 'bout that.

One of my favorite fall memories growing up was carving pumpkins with my dad. So when my parents planned to come up and visit us in October I knew that was one thing we were going to do with them. The best part was always getting the gooey, slimy insides out. That proved to be Taylor's favorite part too! We let the girls help decide what kind of pictures we would carve out of the pumpkin. So after many good- yet advanced- ideas were given, we settled on a butterfly, a flower (which looked more like a maple leaf) and a fish. It wasn't beautiful, but it was fun!! :) Thanks, Mom and Dad, for the good memories of childhood that I now get to pass on to my children.

This One's for Mom (Nana)

The Past Six Weeks (or so)

Well, a lot has happened since I last posted. So I just posted a bunch of pictures so you could kind of see what we have been up to! The only thing is that you have to start from the bottom or it will be backwards. Sorry about that! So you want to start with the pictures of Aubrey's party and go up from there. I hope it makes sense! I'll do better next time. :)..............

Taylor had SO many great ideas for the photo shoot. One of them was that I should take pictures of her dancing. Because this is one of her favorite things to do, I thought that was a pretty good idea! So here they are.

After Mimi and Granddad's visit we randomly decided to take a road trip to New York! We saw Niagra Falls, drove through upstate NY and made our way down to NY City!...In this first picture at Niagra you can see my expanding belly as our little guy grows bigger and bigger. :)

This is Aubrey getting ready to get into the boat to see the Falls.

And here they are! Yes we got very wet even with the raincoats. It was quite amazing!

When we got back home from Colorado, Josh's grandparents came to visit us. We had a great time with them, and the girls had fun playing with them too- and introducing our ducks to them. :)

More Colorado pictures...
I love the aspens!

My Mom came in town for Aubrey's birthday. Then a few days later we all decided to drive to Colorado where we stayed at my uncles house and also got to see some good friends from Covenant who are now living there. These are just some shots I took driving in the beautiful Colorado Rockies.

This was back in August when we came to Texas for a few days for Grandma's 90th birthday. Caitlyn and Micah came to Nana and Papa's house and everyone had a sleep over with Papa on the 3rd floor...until about 10:00pm when they got scared and decided Nana and Papa's bedroom was better.

We celebrated Aubrey's 2nd Birthday with a teddy bear picnic at our favorite park.

School Days Have Begun

Taylor is now in her 3rd week of school. She is going three half-days a week to Central Christian School which is connected with our church. We are interested to see what the year brings. We are still seriously considering home schooling, and have actually officially begun that too. But this is somewhat of an experiment to see which kind of "setting" she works best under. Whatever we do decide about Taylor's future schooling, we are thankful to God for this great school and for Mrs. Burzinski, Taylor's amazing teacher.

This is Taylor on her first day of school....

Here is her classroom.
This is where the kids wait before they are allowed into their classrooms. We only did this the first day. Now I just drop her off straight into her room.

Do Taylor and her new friend remind anyone else of some people named Deb and Napoleon?
And here she is in her room with Mrs. B showing off one of the class hermit crabs. They also have a Guinea pig and a beta fish.
