Alright so to describe this ultrasound picture the top right hand is the head and then down the left side is the back and the butt. You can see the start of a arm and leg and the long cord you see is the umbilical cord and the round thing at the bottom is the yolk sac (the yolk sac is a membranous sac attached to an embryo providing early nourishment). My next appointment is in 4 weeks and I will have another ultrasound so it will be fun to compare both pictures. Then I will not get another ultrasound until I am 20 weeks and at that time we will be able to tell what it is if we want to find out. That will be my last ultrasound unless they need to check on something later.
Today is also a great day because it is my last day of work until January 5th, yep I get 2 full weeks off and I am pumped!!!!

Last night was suspost to be Trevor's first ever Christmas concert at his school but because of the weather they cancelled it. The worst thing about this is they are NOT going to reschedule it, how can you practice with these kids for so long and they where getting so excited and then cancel it and not have it at all??? Trevor was very upset because he was excited to show us he could sing. I did find out that he was not the only one that was upset when I dropped them off at school this morning. How can they do this to 3 and 4 year olds???

Lately my cravings have not been that bad. It has mainly consisted of fresh fruit like strawberries, raspberries, pears etc. But last night I had a weird one I went to the store just to buy dried apricots and they where soooo good, yes I went out in the freezing cold and that was dumb but so worth it. At least I am not craving something bad for you like McDonald's Big Mac or a Whopper. Another thing that is really good these days is SDSU Ice Cream, we buy it by the half gallon at Hy-Vee. When I was pregnant with Trevor I ate pickles by the gallon and this time around I really do care for them that much. Weird I know.

Yesterday Jon finished up his gun cabinet and I think it looks great! Here is a picture of what it looked like the last time I posted something:
Since this picture he has added felt where the guns rest against the wood, in the picture it was half done on the right side but now it is all finished. Also in this picture there is no glass in the doors and he has added that and the thing he has worked on the most is the handles for the cabinet and he made those out of deer antlers. This took him sometime to figure out how to do it but it looks soooooo good, I am very impressed with him most days and how he does stuff. He then decorated the inside with pheasant feathers of Trevor's first pheasant and some shot gun shells.

Another weekend has come and gone and it is that much closer to Christmas, do you have your shopping done?? I went on Saturday with Kelsi and we got a lot done, she is all done and I am 90% so we are getting closer. Jon worked most of the weekend but when he was home Trevor was glued to his side. Friday night they laid on the floor and watched TV.
Saturday night they had a pillow fight and played trucks and last night they took a shower together and had another pillow fight. It was nice to just have a relaxing weekend at home.

Happy Friday to everyone, I hope you are having a good day!!! I am not sure why I thought of this last night but I was thinking of this pictures I took of Trevor when we lived with my brother. He was so tired and refused to go to sleep but I put him in his crib and he fell asleep standing up and last night I thought about it and laughed for a good hour about the whole situation.

This year Jennifer and I decided to do something a little more for Christmas. Last year we talked about this and never got around to it but this year we made it happen!! Jennifer found what is called Project Joy which is out of Brookings. What is Project Joy you might ask?
Project Joy is a charitable, non-profit organization, dedicated to providing children and families living in Brookings County , who are in need, an opportunity to receive holiday gifts through the generous donations of individuals, business, and organizations.
Jennifer e-mailed them and got a list of 4 kids in need with their age and first name. We then bought each of them a toy, an outfit, a hat and gloves and a coloring book with crayons. I am going to put everything together today and drop it off. Each of the kids is assigned a number and I will put that number on the present so that child is sure to get the gifts we bought them.
Black Friday we shopped in Aberdeen to purchase everything and had a fun time doing it together. We will forsure do this again next year!!!
They have a website if you are interested in helping

Part 2 of our weekend was very big so I thought it would deserve its own post. We announced to all of our families that we are expecting another baby, yep that's right I am 6 weeks pregnant. Right now the due date is set for July 25th and we are very excited. We let Trevor tell everyone the news and he told everyone that "there is a baby in mommy's tummy"!
We told our parents with a shirt the weekend before. Trevor wore a shirt that said "I am going to be a BIG brother". Of course the grandma's saw it right away!!

This past weekend was a quiet one. Jon worked almost all weekend at my mom and dad's house finishing their garage so Trevor and I stayed home all weekend and got caught up on laundry, cleaned house and finished putting up the Christmas tree. I know now at looking at it that I need more stuff to put on it but I will wait until all the sales after Christmas to stock up for next year. For the most part I am happy with what I have and Trevor had a great time helping me decorate it.
Today if everyone would say a little prayer for my aunt Sheryl as she is under going open heart surgery. Sheryl is my dad's brother Scott's wife and they have 3 boys. Last week she had what they thought was a galbladder attach but they ran some tests and found out it was more then that when they found something wrong with her heart and her pancreas so they rushed her to Sioux Falls Heart Hospital on Thursday. What they found was a tear in her main valve that needed repair immediately. They could not do anything until her pancreas was under control so they held off with surgery until today. They are telling the family it is a very long surgery so most of the family is down their to support them, depening on how things go we may head down there tonight also. Please keep her in your prayers!

Yesterday Trevor and I stayed home all day and did lots of fun stuff. The day included art and practicing letters and understanding what they ment like J is for Jon and A is for Amber and T is for Trevor. Then Trevor traced my hand and did a really good job!
Then when Jon came home for the day I needed a break so Trevor helped him fill bullets for his upcoming hunting trip (yep again this will be 3 weekends in a row). Jon built this little room under the steps for his loading room and Trevor thinks its the coolest room ever, he calls it a fort!
