By the Way...

I've been working on another little project lately...


It's been in the works for about 4 months now... and should hopefully be completed sometime around the middle of February.


Wow, do I ever not enjoy taking preggo pictures... so awkward and unflattering.  Almost as awkward as telling people you're pregnant... Oh well.

Just thought I should officially let the cat out of the bag.  Some of you local people may have been wondering about me lately-- yes, I've been gaining weight... but it's for a good reason :)

I already had an ultrasound at around 10 weeks as I'm not so good at remembering dates and such.  It was fun to get a sneak peek at the little babe... and when we eventually told the kids about Baby #3 we showed them this picture and said that the baby was waving at them saying "hi guys!!".


They totally bought it.  They loved it.

Anyhow.  Onto other things... like fun relaxing weekends!

We did pretty much nothing.  Sat around, played street hockey with the kids next door (they all think Doug's their new bff), had a lot of BBQ's and yummy food, and finished Sunday night off with a hayride at the farm.  I chose to stay off the hay wagon and take pictures.  A ride through the field-- can anyone say hay fever and allergies?  No thanks.


And 1-2-3 everybody look away... Except for Eme-- who's staring at the dogs coming out of the barn in terror.


Gorgeous nights... I love September on the west coast.  One of my favourite times of the year.


And after a day of eating outside, running around in the dirt, and picking blackberries... I had two dirty kids to bathe and put to bed.


But dirty kids are happy kids :)

Congratulations! What a cute ultrasound picture.

It looks like you guys had a great weekend. I think the weekends where we don't do much except spend time as a family are my favorites.

Grandpa told me about your pregnancy a few weeks ago, but I was waiting to hear it from you. Congratulations!

Yay for more babies. I am with Kelly - my suspicions were very high after Thursday. So happy for you and Doug. I hope you have a fantastic pregnancy.

Elissa, a huge big congrats to you and Doug. I was wondering if there was a #3 in the works just the other day... guess there is. So cool.

Wooohoo for baby #3! I had a sneaking hunch this announcement was coming. Not sure why but I was recently thinking about you and just thought, "I bet she's pregnant!" And I'm not even there to see you so I'd say that's some pretty crazy intuition ;) haha
Anyway... congrats! You look cute as ever!
