3D/4D Ultrasound

Saturday, December 18, 2010


December has flown by. I can't believe we are only a week away from Christmas! Beth and I haven't been doing too much lately, but have found enough stuff to keep busy. Last Friday we had my work Christmas party at The Mayo Hotel in downtown Tulsa. It's a semi-formal (suit and tie/dresses) event which is kind of fun to do every once in a while. Plus I think it's great that my company still does a Christmas party at a time when a lot of companies are cutting them.

On the baby front, we are moving in the right direction. Although Beth and I both feel like we are majorly slacking thus far. We've started clearing the baby room out and have decided on a paint color. We've also selected the type of crown moulding we want to do. The crib and dresser are here (although in boxes) and hopefully by the end of January we will have the baby room complete.

We have also started receiving baby gifts which is awesome. Beth's cousins Jen and Kelly sent us the sweetest package yesterday. It was a baby "starter" kit with tons of stuff that we will use right away. It was so thoughtful of them and Beth and I are super appreciative that they would think of us.

Beth and I had one other Christmas party last week as well. It was hosted by a vendor that my company uses and although I don't work with them directly anymore, they were nice enough to invite Beth and I. It was at a steakhouse called Mahogany Prime and it was great!

Other than that, we are just getting things ready to head down to Houston for Christmas. With the way the holidays fall this year, we'll be able to spend a good amount of time down in Houston with Beth's family. And we are both looking forward to that as well as seeing some of our friends that we haven't seen in a while. Beth will also be having her baby shower in Houston on the 31st which I know she is looking forward to.

First Big Baby Purchase

The only real thing we've accomplished today is we made it to Babies R Us to buy the crib we picked out when my parents were here. We had a 20% on item coupon that expired today, so we used that on the big item. My parents are nice enough to buy the baby furniture for us, but we won't have them up here again until January so we went ahead and got it today. This is the one we picked out.

We slept in until 9:30 today because we've had a pretty busy week. We went out running, 4 miles for me and 10 for Tony before we went out to Babies R Us. It decided to go from 70 degrees yesterday to 45 degrees today, so it was a windy, chilly run, but a good one. I also talked to Andie, Tony's sister, and her kids on Skype this morning which is always fun! Her littlest, Alice, will be 2 in a few months, was saying "Aunt B" to me. It was pretty cute. The day was pretty much gone before we knew it though. After Babies R Us, we wanted to get some "lunch" that we brought home and didn't eat until like 4. So it wasn't really lunch by that time! We bought a Groupon deal for Mr. Goodcents (a sandwhich place) a few months ago and had $10 left on it, so that's what we had. We spent some time putting up some of our outside Christmas lights too. We only did the front ones because it started getting dark and it was cold! We are going to camp out in front of the TV tonight and watch OU play in the Big 12 Championship game...Tony says "Go Sooners!"
