"On the Road to North Dakota, it's a Long and Tedious Journey"

Our Birthday Bubba

3 Generations of Giedd Men

Another blizzard!

Can you believe it? When we headed out to Bismarck last Saturday, there wasn't even snow in the forcast. From the looks of it, we received around 18 inches of snow, but it's hard to tell because it blew so much. I stumbled into a 2 foot drift on our porch as I was going towards the door. We are so thankful that we arrived home safely. We saw literally hundreds of abandoned cars through Wyoming and Colorado. Our normal 12 hour drive took over 15. Boy am I glad to be out of that car! The kids are too!

We had a great visit with Tim's parents this past week and we were sad to leave them. I know they were holding back tears as well. We got to celebrate David's birthday with them a little early and that was fun too. Tomorrow is his first birthday! My big boy is one! He was so small and fuzzy and pink when we brought him home a year ago. I thank God for him and his sweet spirit every day.

P.S. I don't think you can tell from the above picture, but Grandpa Giedd and Dabney and David really did have a great time together. He and Dabney kept each other company most of the time and Grandpa got the biggest kick out of David. Just keep in mind that the picture was taken very early in the morning the day we left- the sun wasn't even up yet.

9 Weeks!

Look at those fingers! Can you believe we're 9 weeks along already? We'll make the big announcement at church tomorrow.

"I Can't See Your Eyes, Dabney!"

"Smile Dabney!"

The lighting was all wrong too. After I got home, I realized the camera was not on the right setting.

This isn't what it looks like...

The Giedd 5

Well, I guess I haven't said too much since we announced Baby J. I've been feeling kind of puny (as Grandma would say) and Christmas is coming and the kids are acting like toddlers (which they are). They make each other giggle and chase each other and David has now discovered how fun it is to unroll whole rolls of toilet paper. I got my first package- the biggest, too- out in the mail this morning and it is headed towards the island of Kauai.

We are so excited about Baby J. We will probably make our announcement on Dec 24th (Davey's birthday)- I'll be 9 weeks+ by then. And by the way, we've named our little bean Baby J because if it is a boy or a girl, the names we've picked both begin with J.

Last weekend we actually went to an actual movie theater to watch a movie that isn't on video yet! We saw The Nativity Story and we liked it a whole lot. Especially Dabney. She thought the camels were great!

Then we went to the mall to see if we could borrow the mall's Christmas props for a kids Christmas picture. David was happy as a clam, but Dabney didn't want to smile. Even ice cream didn't help. So we packed up the kids again and went home. And finally Dabney cracked a smile on the couch. So. I'm pretty disappointed in the pictures, but oh well.

I would be remiss if I didn't mention one thing. Of course, at the mall, a certain large man with a beard was sitting in a little Christmas house across the way from where we were getting pictures. This man had Dabney's absolute attention. She stared at him the whole time. Finally, he came over to see her. Somewhat reluctantly, she gave him a hug when he asked for one, and said, "Merry Christmas".
