Are you taking advantage of Black Friday today? Our phone has been busy this morning. Katie's aunts were calling me trying to get ideas on what to get Katiebug for Christmas. Susan decided to spend the night with Leslie last night, so they had easy access to the mall. It sounded like they were having a blast. Maryann made it out and about a little after 5:00 or something like that. Doug is doing a little Christmas shopping this morning as well. He said he would be back in time to help me with a little Christmas decorating around the house. Katie stayed with Millard and Peggy last night, so I'm hoping to get a lot of the big things done before she gets home. She is so excited about Christmas this year.
I hope to hear that everyone had a wonderful day yesterday. We spent our day with family, 1/2 the day with my family and the other 1/2 with Doug's family. All the food was delicious! I had to make me a little plate to take home for the dessert because I just couldn't eat it all. We had the traditional smoked turkey, dressing, cranberry sauce out of the can, pumpkin pie, pecan pie, fudge and etc. I hung in there pretty good and we didn't get home until 8:00 p.m.
Katie had a blast aggravating her cousins and acting silly. I've warned the kids in the past that anyone laying in the floor are fair play with Katie. Sure enough, Nicholas was laying in the floor watching a movie. Well, Katie looked like she was re-enacting WWE on television. For some reason, I think Katie won the wrestling match with Nic. He would pin her down, in hopes that it would make her not want more. Wrong! Katie kept coming back for more of the NIC. I told Nicholas that paybacks are heck. He announced that he didn't think he was this bad. I have to disagree because he is still aggravating.
Announcing The Baby's Sex On Thanksgiving Day
We played our little game with the family yesterday after lunch. It was so much fun because I bought a bib that was trimmed in blue and had a "C" embroidered in the center of it. I had the bib wrapped up in pink tissue paper to throw everyone off. Sure enough, Susan and Maryann (I think) were going crazy when they saw the pink paper. They both wanted a boy, but they just knew it was a girl when they saw the paper. I didn't say a word as Mom was still unwrapping the bib. Susan turned to me and asked me if I was pulling her leg. I acted like I didn't know what she was talking about. Then, she claimed to have seen the blue trim on the bib. LOL! The screams and ahhhs were in a uproar when they finally saw the bib. The majority of our blogger fans and family members just knew we were having a girl, but surprise IT'S A BOY!
If you don't already know, we will be naming our baby boy Colton Lamar.
The history of the name goes as follows: I had a small list of boy and girl names that I really liked. I was tossing around the name Colton Douglas. One Saturday, Doug was watching Texas playing football on television. Their quarterback's name is Colt. He told me that he liked the name Colt, he never knew that I was tossing around the name as well. It's as if God has a plan for this baby and He put the name on both of our minds. So, it is meant to be. Doug liked Lamar to be Colton's middle name better than Douglas.
Laura wants to know - If I let the cat out of the bag? No, I didn't let any cat out of the bag. I noticed that the boys went up by 2 points after I posted the baby's ultrasound pictures. Maybe someone saw something that we didn't. Who knows?
What does Katie think? When we first told her during the ultrasound, she got a little upset because she wanted to call the baby "Dora". I told her that she could but I didn't think her little brother would appreciate it too much. LOL!
Susan told me that the results came back as pre-cancerous. So, she will have to keep a watchful eye on the two spots on her face.
