Christmas Day 2008

Another Christmas done already? Wow...time sure flies when you're having fun and working full time and married and having a baby!! I hear it only speeds up once the little ones come, too. Anyway, we were all spoiled rotten this morning at Mom and Dad Hosford's house, as you can see from the pre-gift-opening shot above (which wasn't even all of it!). This is Austin and I's last year as "Austin and I", so we're going to relax the rest of the day and enjoy the quiet. :)

Thank you Mom and Dad for another incredible Christmas!! And the Barney Wipes were my favorite gift ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Barney has been very spoiled already between last night and this morning. Also, take a look at Lauren's belly!! Holy Moly! I have some serious catching up to do!!!!

Christmas Eve 2008

Oh, what a night!! We got to spend another wonderfully memorable Christmas Eve at Grandma Klingerman's house last night. It's always so nice to see family, and always guarenteed for a good laugh or two when you put us all in one room! Austin played Santa again, which he does so well, even though he tells every single kid that they'll get whatever they ask for.....laptops, cell phones, anything! Thanks for another great Christmas Eve to all! :)

Barney's Blossoming Bump

Yup...Barney's still growing!! Austin and I actually got to see him/her on Monday night via ultrasound, and he/she was waving it's arms and legs all over and bouncing around! By far the coolest thing we've ever far. And no, Chester is not one of those "crotch smelling" dogs, as it looks in the pic. He actually jumps up on me and "bumps" the baby bump (he's not a "kisser", but he "bumps" us on the mouth as his way of kissing). It's so cute! Hoonis literally looks the other way when I point to my belly, and LuLu tries to jump all over it, so at this point, I think Chester is the only animal in this house that's excited for a baby!
Two more trimesters to go!! We love you Barney Bibler!!

Look at This Mug...

This is Lucy TenBrink. She was Hooney's sister/littermate (can't you tell-they look so much alike). Anyway, she was euthanized this morning due to several complications of cancer-the number one killer of boxers. For any of you who know any of the TenBrink's (Mike, Linda, Mike Jr., Carrie, Kristi, Graham, etc.), please let them know that you're thinking about them, as this was extremely hard on all of them. They are nuts about dogs, particularly Boxers, just like I am. They still have Matilda, aka Tilly, who is Hooney's real mom (but don't tell Hooney that...he thinks I am his real mom).

R.I.P. poor Lucy.

117 Days....

...until we get to put our feet in the sand again!! That's right, I'm already counting down, but I have been counting down since 225+ days, so it doesn't seem that far away now! This year, Austin, Barney (who will still be in my belly, but he/she counts too!) and I will be flying down (thanks to Dr. Pete's pre-approval, of course!) to sunny Gulf Shores, Alabama on April we get an entire 10 days! WOOT! Right now, as I sit here and am freezing and looking out at SNOW, I seriously cannot wait...:)
