Forgot to share...

I forgot to share with you all that we are temporarily a DIAPER FREE house... Paige is officially potty trained. We took the leap New Years Eve and she has done spectacular. She loves her big girl panties and we are so proud. It has taught me not to assume things when it comes to your kids because they will surprise you at any chance. She is so stubborn and hard headed I thought for sure it was going to be a super difficult task and it wasn't. GO PAIGE!

20/22 week appointment a little late.

I will be 22 weeks pregnant this Saturday and I had my 20 week appointment today. All is well with Little Miss Claire. She has a super strong heartbeat in the mid 150's. She is measuring right on schedule and I have only gained a total of 2.5 pounds. YAY. I will update you all after our next appointment in 4 weeks.

And the world goes round and round... like a TUBE.

The kids had fun tubing. I think Paige enjoyed it more than Reese. Reese wanted to go skiing but she had to deal with tubing this year.

Sunday morning and its snowing.

We were all so excited to wake up this morning to see SNOW on the ground and falling from the sky. We ventured out side with the R's and to play with all the girls. I slipped and fell on the driveway and Katrina banished me into the grass. I was fine, and so was little baby Claire. Craig and Reese had already discussed a snow ball fight that would include hitting each other in the butts. I hope you enjoy the pictures, we had a lot of fun.

Evening at The Ghost Town in The Sky...

Sorry for the delay in posting here. I tried four times to add pictures to this post but everytime it didn't happen... UGH.. I am actually typing this as blogger "uploads" the pictures again. PLEASE WORK... We spent tonight (Saturday) evening up at the house of the owner of The Ghost Town in the Sky, thanks to Chris R.'s uncle Tim. The house was huge and gorgeous and is way up on top of the mtn.. with spectacular views. Here are a few pictures. Thank you Tim for a great evening of music and snacks. :)

Ok again no pictures... I will try again tomorrow.

Playing in the snow at Cataloochee

We decided to go up to Cataloochee with everyone today and play in the snow. We were there for about an hour or so while all of our friends picked up their rentals and bought their lift tickets. The girls had a lot of fun, and if it hadn't been so crowded we might have let Reese join the ski school for an afternoon session. Maybe tomorrow.

Just checking it out.

Rolling around in the snow.

Snow bunnies.

Paige has good aim, she had just got me in the face with a snow ball.. WATCH OUT!

Me hangin out watching the girls have fun.

Yay, we have hot water finally. Craig has been outside with the maintenance man for about 2 hours and they finally have unfrozen our lines... I think. :) That is good because its supposed to be 1 degree tonight. BRR BRR Brrr.

First Day of Trip and we have arrived....

We are here in Maggie Valley, NC at the Triple Play cabin. We love it. The cabin is so NICE, thank you Katrina for finding such a gem for us to play in for the weekend. One glitch at the moment, no hot water and the gas fireplace wasn't working, we have a fire now and Craig and the maintenance man are working on the hot water... PLEASE work. Other than that we had a pretty good 8 hour drive. The girls really handled it very well. We stopped a few more times than planned to let potty training Paige do her business. At one point we realized that we drove in VA, TN and NC all with in a hour. CRAZY. I think Craig is going skiing tomorrow and Reese might go to ski school. Paige and I might run down into Asheville to buy a new air mattress for the girls to sleep on, ours didn't make it through the trip, I think it got too cold. Here is a picture of the girls snuggling up in Mommy & Daddy's bed... watching TV.

Its a girl...

A copy of the 3D picture of her face and hand... I know its hard to see.. but you should see a jaw line, lips, nose eyes and at the middle to upper left of the picture near her forehead are a few little fingers... was amazing.
