Parties and more parties = BUSY!

Despite Carter catching a cold (no, we can't win over here) we had a busy weekend full of fun and he did great. Friday night we had the Top Christmas party (Brian's mom's side). Here Carter is entertaining Great Grandpa Top and Uncle John.
Opening his super cute and comfy camoflauge outfit...he wore it Saturday already!
Then on Saturday we went out with Tim, Jen and Liam to see Santa Claus and to the live Nativity at the Critter Barn. Oh and yes, Carter wore the same shirt all weekend...can only wear it for so long! Jen made them for the boys...adorable as always. The boys weren't sure what to think of Santa but didn't cry either. Doesn't Santa looked thrilled? :)
Between seeing Santa and heading to the Critter Barn my camera battery died and Tim and Jen's camera lens broke so I only have some pictures on my phone. Carter LOVED the animals though and wanted to touch all of them. We will definitely be going back. Then we picked up pizza and headed to Tim and Jen's for the boys to open gifts.
Carter tearing into his Eco friendly's so cool and the kid LOVES it.
We bought Liam some crayons, markers, paper and a magna doodle. Jen's trying to show him how to use it. Surprisingly he actually drew a little with the crayons already!
Phew...then Sunday we had the DeJonge Christmas party. Carter had to have Aunt Betty get out her matchbox cars. Such a boy!
Great grandma bought Carter a Handy Manny he is opening it with cousin Justin.
We played some crazy of which we all got a little dressed up (you could say!). To spare embarrassment from my family I'll just post the lovely glasses I got to wear. As you can see Carter loved to wear them too..
Here is the whole De Jonge gang...minus just a couple.
After such a busy weekend Carter and enjoyed our Monday PJ day. We did go outside and play in the snow for a bit and Carter wanted to play with his shovel and bucket but mittens just stink for the little guy so I took a bucket of snow inside...he LOVED it and it kept him entertained for a while! Maybe next time I'll have to color it a bit for some more fun!

And as everyone else....more parties this week! Merry Christmas to all!

Weekend Fun (& some not so fun)

Carter got to go to work with Brian on Saturday morning and then they came home and wanted to go sledding. So off to the OAC hill we went. Carter wasn't too sure of it at first as you can see, so Brian said we were going to send him down the hill by himself. Here he is ready to go down by himself!

Can you see his BIG grin??? Mr. Independent LOVED going down by himself. Crazy kid! He'll tell ya all about it too!
Saturday night we had the extended Meeuwsen party at our church. Carter got a Magna Doodle from Great Grandma and Grandpa that he LOVES! He loves to color so I thought that would be a good idea. And check out his CUTE shirt that Jenni made him....he has another cute one too that I can't wait for him to wear.
Then yesterday was a good day until Carter got up from his nap. He seemed fine so he went with Brian to wash my truck and when they came home I was helping him take his coat off and he started to throw up! Ugh, and I can't handle that so I lost my lunch too! Thankfully daddy our super hero was home to help! Carter threw up one more time last night but seems okay today. Not really hungry but drinking so hopefully it was just a little bug in his system.

Snow Day

Wow...I can't believe all this snow! Apparently there isn't near as much south of us but we sure got bombarded! Carter and I went out this morning to shovel and play in the snow. It's kind of frustrating for him b/c of wearing mittens but he did pretty good and thought the snow was pretty cool. Here are some pics I took this morning.

Our little babushka

This afternoon Brian and I were able to take a sneak peek at the little miracle inside of me. Just that first glimpse of the arms and legs moving is so incredible. It's amazing to see the heart, nose, lips, fingers, toes, etc. This babe, as did Carter, measured exactly to my due date and the baby weighed 11 oz. The baby was SUPER wiggly and always had his or her hands by the face so it was hard for the tech to get good pics and measurements but after emptying my bladder twice she was able to get what she needed. Her are just a couple pics. The first one is of the baby looking right at you (kind of freaky!) and the second one is a profile pic.

Can we say another Meeuwsen forehead? :)
Cute little nose!
And trust me...we did NOT find out. I don't know we could have if we wanted too! Probably shouldn't have had those smarties before the ultrasound. :) We will just have to wait and be surprised in April! Please continue to pray for another healthy baby!
