Its a .....


no- not really :)
but that is our "code name" this time around (some of you may remember that Zeke was "cletus the fetus" when he was of unknown gender in utero.)

A couple weeks ago we had an ultrasound planned where we would get to find out the gender if we choose. We didnt decided to find out until about a week before the ultrasound.

Once we did decide that we were going to tell people the gender the next thing we decided was to not tell names and we would tell our parents at Christmas (about 2 weeks later)

I then had to decide how we were going to tell the parents. We actually managed to not even have them know if we knew or not. That was a bit tricky- especially when they came right out and asked us "so did you find out the gender?"

I went to the baby section in my local walmart and found some cute bibs and booties to wrap to give the parents as the last Christmas presents of the day.

Here are their reactions:

First my mom and sister

 then Daves mom and sister

This picture was followed by some giddy schoolgirl feet stomping with a gleeful "ohhh! now I can buy pink yarn!"

So if you havent guessed- we are having a GIRL!

I cant wait to get home and start pulling girly fabrics for a quilt!!
only one problem of having to move all my quilting stuff to the basement- I guess it will be my first project there! (motivation- right?)

A Big Help!

Zeke has been a big help today.

first he brought his rolling back pack to church and brought in his own diaper and drink etc.

Our car was showing a low tire when we were heading home so Zeke helped daddy "fix it"
 We then went up the mountain to Blowing Rock where they had some snow on the ground

 We came home and after Zekes nap he helped daddy sort out the laundry.

By the way- my hubby is awesome to start laundry without me even knowing it took it downstairs!!

And this picture just makes me laugh out loud!

Zeke kept opening his mouth like he was going to bite you. I just looked in at his teeth but Dave got a tad "nervous" and so Zeke kept doing it and getting closer and closer.

We told him no biting so instead he decided licking was the way to go.....

Google Christmas Party 2011

So my husbands work has an annual Christmas Party.

Each year it has been in a different location and I think this was the best one by far.

We went to the Grove Park Inn in Asheville NC where we had dinner followed by a dueling piano bar, a stay overnight and a wonderful breakfast.

The Grove Park Inn hosts a gingerbread competition every year. Some of the requirements are that there must be gingerbread and everything must be editable. There was tons of gingerbread sculptures! even the youth ones were pretty amazing :) I dont think we got to see them all.

After breakfast we headed into Asheville and took a trolley tour and grabbed a couple geocaches (ask dave who found them!)

This was the very first time BOTH Dave and I have been away overnight away from Zeke. We had a good friend come and stay over with him and they had a blast together. Although I hear he was a little put off by us not coming to get him in the morning :)
Thank You very much Courtney!! We wouldnt have been able to go without you!

I hope you enjoy these photos our our mini vacation.
