Christmas at My Parents House.

Just a little update during my Christmas break (from work and blogging) to show you Christmas at my Mom and Dads! So beautiful - like walking into a picture!
























Stockings for my brother, his wife, me and husby! Santa filled them with some fantastic things! :)





Momsy made BABY LOVIE A TREE! (We have settled on a name, by the way! I will reveal next week!) This was in my room and it was absolutely amazing!!! I think he lept in my womb when he saw it. He felt so special and so loved.




Since we didn't know if he was a Boy Lovie or a Girl Lovie until 2 days before I came home for the Christmas festivities, she made it both pink and blue!




She also had this little tree next to my side of the bed, and I slept with it on each night - until Husby came to bed and unplugged it. It was SO soothing and SO wonderful.



On the top of the tree was a picture with his ultrasound. I couldn't get a very good picture of it.



The tiny lights changed colors so slowly and softly. Ahhhh....




The tree in my Brother's room was a dog tree - so cute!



THIS tree was amazing! It was in the bathroom for all of us to enjoy - filled with lotions, bath gels, loofahs, face scrub, bath bombs - it was awesome!





I don't know how, but I forgot to get a picture of the kitchen decorations and the Old World tree in the Den! I thought I got everything - oops.



Pretty Momsy and Pretty Gramma. Love 'em.



The Sis-In-Law and Me in our annual Christmas Jammies Photo. :) These were sooo comfy!

The week was fabulous - filled with Christmas traditions like "It's a Wonderful Life" Night, lots of cooking and laughing, one night of getting dressed up and seeing the Rockettes, shopping til we dropped, lots of Starbucks hot chocolate and being together for several days. Twas wonderful!


And lastly but not leastly, my tummy pic in front of Baby Lovie's tree. 15 weeks.

  21. Wow, if you have a bump like that at 15 weeks I can't wait for mine! I'll be 14 weeks on Thursday. (they think it's a girl, but it's so early that the u/s tech made me promise not to go buy pink. I told her I wouldn't but Kohl's was having too good of sales on super cute stuff. I left the tags on!)

  24. Your parents house is like a dream. How lovely. I can't wait to hear what name you decided on!! I love thinking about baby names. I've had "mine" picked out for ages, but, the husband has vetoed almost all of them...Mainly, because they are girl names... Hmm... Hope you had a very Merry Christmas!!
