Excitement Everywhere . . .

Sunday a strong cold front whipped into our region of Oklahoma dropping the temperature from 70 to 20. Around 9:30 p.m. heavy sleet started pelting down. At times we could hear thunder! By the time I made it to bed around 11:30, the streets and sidewalks were covered with thick ice. Ugh, here we go again! At least we weren't getting freezing rain, just sleet!

Monday morning Kari was scheduled to have an ultra-sound to check little Ethan's progress. We decided it would be a good idea for us to drive Bobby & Kari to the Dr's. office in the 4 wheel drive since it was evident that the roads were in horrible condition. Most of the schools were closed in the area. It took us 45 minutes to make the trip that should only take 20 under normal conditions. When we got a few miles from the office we started noticing that this part of town had received only a trace of precipitation, the streets were clear! Amazing. Speaking of amazing, Bobby & Kari invited us to come in the room & see the ultra-sound! Wow! How amazing! We found out little Ethan is about 3.9 lbs. The due date is still February 20. Thanks kids for letting us share this moment with you!

I received this wonderful award from Melissa at http://melissasheartandhome.blogspot.com/ !!

The rules say to pass this award on to other deserving blogging friends, so I'm passing it along to anyone who stops by to read my blog. All of my friends in blog land have really outdone themselves showing their 'Christmas Spirit' with their beautiful decorations & yummy recipes.
All you have to do is post 5 things you love about Christmas.
Here's my list. . .
I love celebrating the birth of our dear Savior.
I love the beautiful music I hear during the month.
I love decorating our home for the season.
I love seeing the excitement in the eyes of a child.

Wasn't it crazy how quickly the temp. dropped?
I didn't even wear a coat or jacket to church.
By about 2:30 it was so much colder.
Thankfully we didn't get any sleet. It was just windy and cold.

How special that you were able to be there for the ultra sound.
