We added another member to our little family last night!! We got a 12 week old yorkie!! His registered name will be Rockin' Rusty, but we're just going to call him Rusty :) Our other yorkie, (Chewbacca), already gets along great with him, and he was sharing his toys (a big deal for Chewy!) within the first 10 minutes!! So now I have an activity (house-training, & basic training) to do while I'm off work! Here's a pic of my little handsome guy:
We hadn't been planning on a new puppy, but we just came across a deal that we couldn't pass up, and we're thinking about breeding him with our friends female yorkies (when they all get old enough of course) that he just bought about a month ago... Not to mention it's nice for Chewy to have a friend, and me being home soon will make house-training so much easier!
Anyways, I better get back to work... Down to single-digit days here, so I gotta get this stack of work off my desk!!

On the home front, Christmas was great. We managed to have an "electronic free" Christmas. Only one gift we bought for the kids requires batteries, and it was electronic battleship for our Family Game Night. So at least it's still a game we can all play. R LOVES her doll house, and P loves his basketball hoop (even though it's not set up yet. S really likes his new bible and football inspired cover that I made for it. He got me a new cross necklace, and a new willow tree figurine (Love it!) We were also able to avoid going to his family's x-mas party for once which was nice. We finished up our Christmas morning with our kids, took P to his mom's house, and then we took a nap until about 11 am when we made the 1/4 block trip to my mom's house. S went to work around 1 and R and I just hung out there all day/evening with my family that came to visit. Not sure what our plans are for New Years. S has New Years Eve off, and I have New Years day off, but we'll have the kids, so I doubt we'll be going to a party or anything. My New Years Resolution (the first one I'm making in YEARS!) is going to be to work on my patience with the kids, and also I want to make it a goal to spend 20 minutes a night reading by myself. I love/miss reading so much, but I just don't seem to make time for it anymore.
Well, I better get some work done around here. Maybe I should also make a resolution to blog more :)

Some friends from church had their baby a little over a week ago. She was born early and has been in the NICU, hopefully she'll be released this week. What an awesome thing to be thankful for this Thanksgiving huh? Here's a pic of a Bib I made her over the weekend. I hand-embroidered the little details on the cat's face :) It was my first try... came out a little crooked, but hopefully no one will notice. I also made a onesie and some booties to match.
In other news, M&D are going to be coming down around Dec. 11th!! YAY!! I can't wait to hang out with them and show them around our town. They might choose to do a 3d ultrasound while they are here, so that would be exciting!

And just so we can compare... here is one from right after our first ultrasound confirming we had twins (around 6.5 weeks or so)
Quite the difference huh? I'm excited, but a little nervous to see just how much this belly can expand over the next 20 weeks to come!!
