No wonder our power went out-we had some snow drifts 3 1/2 feet tall. We are getting so much snow this year. And I don't know how that random picture of Cohen got in the snow blog- so enjoy more pictures of him!!

Christmas 2008

Christmas was great this year. Cohen woke up at 6am and the power went out at 6:30am and did not come back on until 10:30. It was finally light enough to open presents at 8:30 with outside light. Cohen loved all the presents Santa brought him, and mom, dad and grandparents. We all had a great morning- no homemade poptarts until noon when we could bake them at my parents house. We had a great progressive dinner that evening. Lots of snow!!!! We couldn't hardly drive down our street and kept getting stuck driving into our circle. Thankfully my brother-in-law Danny came by- it only took the both of them 2 1/2 hours to shovel the driveway together.

We Have an Announcement!!

No these aren't pictures of Cohen these are pictures of our newest member of the family- A BABY BOY!! It is a long story. Most of you knew I was pregnant. Yesterday was my first doctors appointment and our family doctor told us through blood work we were about 9 weeks along as an estimate obviously. So we went and got an ultrasound done and we were expecting to see this tiny olive sized baby and maybe get to hear the heart beat. Well when she put the ultrasound on Steve and I were both like holy cow that's a real looking baby. The ultrasound tech was like well you look a lot father along than you thought- 15 weeks and 2 days. I skipped 1 1/2 months of pregnancy- how nice is that. SHe said I might be able to tell you what it is. Steve and I were so excited- and sure enough Cohen is having a baby brother. I was excited for either and not even thinking gender for a while- so I am so excited to have another boy. And he was so cute in the ultrasound kicking his legs. I love boys!! We feel truly blessed and are excited for our new arrival June 6th!

The Carousel

We went to South Towne Mall last Saturday to do some Christmas shopping. As we were eating lunch Cohen was amazed by the carousel- so we took him on it for the first time. Before the ride was moving he was just patting the horse- then once it started he was shaking because he didn't know what was going on. By the end he was just looking around and loving it! I think it was just as much fun for Steve and I to see him having such a good time!
