George's Birthday, Girls Party, Merry Christmas

Yesterday was George's 28th birthday. Last night we had his requested birthday dinner at my moms which included meatloaf, mashed potatoes, green beans, garlic bread, and a chocolate cake. It was very yummy and we all enjoyed a home cooked meal. I got him the Astros cap that he is wearing, an Astros ornament for our tree, and a "my first Astros tee" for Haley (I guess that's what happens when you become a dad, you get presents for your kids on your birthday..haha)

Thursday night I had our young girls group over to our house for a Christmas party. We had 18 people total and a fun time was had by all. We played some fun games and pictured below was one of them. We had to make reindeer antlers out of pantie hoes and small hard to blow up balloons. My team lost, but we laughed a lot so that was worth it.

After all of the fun we have had this past week, I am exited to announce that I have 17 days off from school! I don't have to go back until January 6th! That is why I LOVE my job! I plan on doing a lot of resting and preparing for a busy 2009. We are going to Houston for Christmas and then just chilling around c-town the rest of the time. We hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and enjoys the time they get to spend with family and friends. Love, George, Rachel, Max and Haley-(coming soon 2009)!

Baby Shower Post #2

So it finally let me upload my imagines. Not sure why its underlinning everything I'm typing, but I can't figure it out so I'm just going to keep going.

I got some great gifts as I said earlier. Here is a coat my mom made for Haley, a blanket my friend Alex and Mindy got monogrammed for her and a dress my mom made her. Since Haley is named after my great aunt Haley, I got some keep sakes from her since she passed away a month or so ago. I got one of her necklaces that has an H on it, and somethings that my grandmother had given her that Haley can have and keep forever.

Only 9 weeks and 4 days left until February 14th. The count down has really begun. Its hard to imagine that she will double in size in that time and that I will get even bigger. We are excited and ready to meet her. I hope she has curly brown hair, brown eyes and a big head like her daddy (JK about that one).

Baby Shower

We had a pretty eventful weekend. Friday night we went to the Christmas parade downtown Cleburne. It was really pretty good for a Cleburne parade. It lasted a good 30 minutes and Santa and Mrs. Clause even came by at the end. On Saturday night we went downtown Fort Worth and ate at Mi Cocina for George's Wells Fargo party. Sunday my church threw me a baby shower and we got tons of gifts. I will have to say that our little girl will be dressed in lots of pink for the first year of her life.

Here are all the wonderful ladies that have all been apart of my life since I was born.

Starting from the left:

Fairy George-Helped throw my mom's showers when she was getting married and having babies.

Betty Waits-I grew up with Erin her daughter and we have video tapes of us when we were 5 playing and at each others birthday parties

Jamie Williams-Taught me in pre school and I used to ride my bike to her house pretty much everyday after school to play with her little grandchildren when I was in elementary school and they were like a year old.

Amy Jones-I was in her wedding when I was 6 or 7 and I passed out the rice before they left.

Aunt Lisa-Well what can I say, she is pretty much my second mom and she headed up the whole shower! Thanks Aunt Lisa! It was great!

It is so fun to have showers and you forget how important it is to give gifts and go to showers to make the person feel special. George and I sure did feel pretty special unloading all of our gifts and filling up Haley's room on Sunday. My sister came down for the shower and very special guests were my high school friends Melve, Audra, and Alex (and Mindy my other HS mom). I was so glad they came and they gave me awesome gifts. I think they were discussing the whole time how they couldn't believe I was going to be a mom. Kind of crazy how time flies and things change.

My computer is not letting me upload anymore pictures, so I'm going to do another post and see if it will let me.

Mavericks Game

On Thursday mom and I went to the Mavericks game. They were playing the Suns and we had a great time with awesome seats. We won which made it even more fun to watch. Thanks mom for taking me!

T.O. was there and he threw a couple of footballs out. Too bad we didn't catch one.


Nash vs. Jason Kidd

29 Weeks-Perfect

So I am not one to like to talk about myself, but its my blog so I want to get this on record.

Dr. Ford said today the Haley and I are both PERFECT! Just what a momma wants to hear (wow that felt weird calling myself a mom).

Why are we so perfect?

-I have gained 3 pounds since my last visit, 6 pounds total

-My blood pressure was 130/80

-My glucose test was 91 and Dr. Ford said that was better than his would be

-No swelling in my feet or ankles

-Haley measures perfect in my belly, not to big or small

-Her heart beat was a perfect 140 bpm

So there you have it, we had a short and positive visit. Being a dietitian, I get into the whole numbers and lab tests and it makes me happy when they are all right on track. Just hope I can say that after the delivery and labor. We talked about an epidural and he put me down for one. No natural, wonder woman for me. I go back in 3 weeks on Dec. 22nd. Hope my appointment is as good as it was today.
Merry Christmas!!
