IT SNOWED!, originally uploaded by brookiej1.

We went outside while Daddy was shoveling the first batch of snow off! Abby got in her little pink sled & Daddy pulled her down the road. Very cute! If I can figure out how to add the video, I'll do that later on!
Love, The 4Js

She cracks me up! She decided to like the snow...hahaha. That means she is willing to put all the clothes on & stand outside. She will not actually walk in it!

TAKE MY PICTURE!, originally uploaded by brookiej1.

Have I created a monster???

Abby is now requesting to have her picture taken! "Take our picture, Mommy!" She still doesn't like to pose on command, but maybe we'll get there!

Abby rarely wants her picture taken, but she asked me to take this one! Too cute!

Don't we look alike?

This is Daddy & Abby at the USO Santa Express. We had a fun morning...Abby got to see Santa & Mrs. Claus. She asked for a BIG dollhouse!! The USO was wonderful to provide this special event & the kids had a great time. We're just so happy Daddy is home this year!

Quick Update...

Hi all! We went for the follow-up news yet. I wish I could say that's because they would call if something were wrong; I'm not 100% sure that would happen! We will go back on Monday for my next dr appointment, so I'll report then.

It's supposed to snow tonight, so we're gearing up for that. I still need to get to the grocery store so we'll have food! Indy LOVES the snow & Abby has decided she will like it this year. It may have something to do with the pink snow boots...I'm not sure. Either way, we'll be wearing the boots! :) Abby is really into all the Christmas stuff this year. She talked me into getting candy canes that light up -- Daddy put them out front, so we're all set!

We're still working on getting our Christmas letter done & then the guy who is doing the drywall in our basement gets here tomorrow at 7 am. We will have plenty to do if we're snowed in!

Bye for now,

Christmas Preparations

Dr. Appointment Monday

Hi all!
We are doing great! Mommy is getting bigger by the minute...this baby sure likes to eat! :) It's amazing how much there is to do in December. It seems like every time I turn around, we are getting another email with yet another invite to something! We have 2 cookies exchanges & at least 2 Christmas parties coming up. Whew.

The main reason I am posting is that we have our follow-up ultrasound on Monday. The radiologist wanted to see the baby's kidneys again, so please keep that in your prayers. We are not anxious, but we will be happy to go back and have the doctor review the ultrasound! Now I have to tell them that we still don't want to know the sex. BUT I WANT TO KNOW! :P Well, part of me does & part of me likes the surprise. Abby is just excited to have a baby brother or sister. She is practicing like crazy.

I'll try to get some of our holiday pics up...we tried to take our family shot last weekend. My dad did the best he could. I had to crop out my big rear & Abby's pink slipper boots! Fun times. This is all while we paused the Bears game & tried to get Indy to act normal!!

Bye for now,
The Johnson 4
