Decking the Halls

Sorry it is picture OVERLOAD below...but maybe you'll enjoy it more than my rambling. We have had a very busy past couple of weeks. We had the birth of baby Amelia and trips back and forth between Birmingham were a must to see that little cutie, then we came home and finally got our house decorated for Christmas which you will see pics of below, and then yesterday we found out what this little baby bump is going to be come May! And you will just have to scan through all our pics and read to find out... 

Avery got her very own manger scene for Christmas last year and

Maybe we should get A a hair cut for Christmas?? I love how long its getting though...

Stoney got in on the festivities too.

We started off the night decorating with an entire outfit on and then ended up like this...

Avie getting to put the first ornament on the tree

Avery admiring her work...

Here is a finished picture of our tree and holiday advent ladder. Jonas helped me make this ladder, it was another crazy DIY from a blog i love and i like how it turned out!

And here is Jonas with baby Amelia. She is so cute a snugly and we had the best time seeing her for a brief 24 hours in Bham.

Big sister, Brooklyn, making sure Amelia sees her animals that are there for her entertainment :)

Avery and Brookie got to entertain each other/play around each other.

Avery has become obsessed with this blue ball and carries it around constantly tripping over this blasted thing. 

Look how big she is getting, she still seems so babyish to me sometimes and it's so weird that she is going to be a big sister soon!

These little guys were fun to make and are super easy as im sure you can tell. I made them for Jonas' cousins who just had a baby in November and they have two older boys who loved these things. 

And here are some more action shots of this little chick, she is so fun right now and keeps us laughing all day everyday.

And finally for the news you scrolled all the way down for...

It's a BOY!!!

When we went in yesterday morning, the second the ultrasound tech put the machine on my belly it was on the baby's bottom, and at first it looked like a girl but then when she barely moved it you could definatly tell it was a little boy! We were so excited/shocked, mainly just because we totally thought it was another girl, but we are very excited that we will be having one of each now! We went out to eat last night with our parents to Maggianos and told them with the dessert...

Thank you to all of you who prayed and  thought about us yesterday! We definatly felt it!
