Next Week

I can't believe Christmas is already next week. And to think there's only a couple weeks of 2010 left; it just blows my mind.

How is it possible that my 30th year of life is rapidly coming to a close, and in no time I'll be in my 31st. (YIKES!)

I do love this time of year, even though it is always insanely busy and I start to feel a bit stressed, a bit stretched too thin.

Mom & I finished our holiday baking yesterday - a whopping 102 dozen cookies. We may just be a little insane, but when we've got a list of family, friends, coworkers, etc that we give cookies we have to keep some around for us to indulge. Oh, and of course we need some for Santa!

Thankfully my shopping has been done for some time, and my wrapping is just about complete. I've got 3 gifts left to wrap, just as soon as the last two things I'm waiting on to complete 2 gifts come in the mail.

We also just celebrated my boy's NINTH birthday. How that is possible, I don't know.

And last, but not least -- an update and a great big thank you for those of you sending up prayers for my friend. Baby is growing with a wonderful heartbeat, and while my friend has been on bedrest due to a subchorionic bleed, it has clotted & gotten smaller. So thankful for that! I am just so thrilled that I get to be an "auntie" to so many fantastic kiddos, and that there's 2 more coming in 2011 (another friend is expecting her 5th!)!!

Calling All Prayer Warriors....

I told you all about my good friend that has been down quite the road to get pregnant.

They just found out the good news last week & this week they saw their itty bitty little baby on ultrasound, measuring a happy 6 weeks.

However, today they found themselves in the ER due to bleeding. The good news is that they DID hear the baby's heartbeat (such a HUGE step!), but it was lower than what the doctor wanted. More good news is that her HCG levels increased again, but they were told it really could go either way.

So if you all could take a moment and pray for that baby to hang on. In my heart I feel that everything will be okay, but some extra prayers never hurt, either.
