Baby Shower for Kristi

Babies, babies, and more babies!  I feel like everyone has a baby on the way...it's so exciting!  There are 4 girls pregnant at work and my friend, Kristi from church (along with 2 others) are also pregnant!  Kristi's baby, Alex will be here soon so Whitney, Pam, and I put together a shower for her.  We decided to make the cupcakes, which turned out to be a lot of fun, however, getting them to the church turned out to be a little harder than we thought!  We snapped a few pictures of us icing the cupcakes (please don't judge for the hideous hairnet).  Ryan ended up being our quality control, while Jason wrangled Ansley (somehow he always gets out of the dirty work).  Here are a few pictures from the cupcake decorating party...soon I will post some from the shower.

Jansen is Here!!!

Thank you Lord!  Little Jansen Edward arrived on January 21, 2010 at 11:08 p.m. weighing 7 lbs. 4 oz. and 21 inches long. It is confirmed, Laura is wonder woman and puts ALL of us to shame...after about 4 pushes Jansen came out without a hitch! He is healthy and beautiful! We are all so excited for them! Here are a few images from the whole experience.

The Flu Bug Got Me :(

I've been a little under the weather recently and just haven't been posting very much.  I couldn't even drag myself to work, which is unlike me.  I pretty much have to be dying for that to happen!  One of the reasons is I just hate getting a nasty occurence (the big O, we can only get four in a year)...so of course, this thing will hang over my head for the next 344 days!  Arhhh! 
On a better note, Ansley has been fun as always.  I thought instead of pictures I would post a video that I took a couple of nights ago.  Here the little bug is, however, she's the kind you want to keep around :). 
Disclaimer:  Sorry about my annoying voice, wish I could edit that out :) video

Christmas and Snow Fun

I snapped a few pictures of Ansley in front of the Christmas trees and in the snow we just had.  I've been late to post them, but I thought they were way too cute not to!  We put a tree up in Ansley's room this year and I'm glad we did!  She loved to look at the lights and of course, pull on all the ornaments she could reach!  Our next Christmas should be pretty interesting!  Ansley also had fun with her very first snow...she just wanted to sit and make snow angels with her feet.  She was amazed by it!
Here she is with her little Christmas tree

Bringing in the New Year with a Bang!

We decided to have New Year's Eve at our house this year, which was great because we were able to have Ansley with us (for awhile) and we enjoy entertaining at the house (I love how grown-up that sounds :).  The fun crowd was a follows:  Ryan and Whitney, Aaron and Marissa, Sheri (for a little bit), David Wyatt, & Matt and Kristi.  We had too much food and way too much fun!  Here are a few pictures from the crazy evening...
 Whitney provided the party hats

Girls night out!!

Jason dancing with his noise maker...don't ask.

Aaron was able to make snake charmer sounds with his noise maker and Marissa was the snake

Happy New Year!
