It's a BOY!!

Well, the fabulous Dr. New squeezed us in on the 26th, and we confirmed 100% that we're having a boy! Hope you guys are all enjoying the rest of your holiday season. We're in Nashville right now, and I'll try to post the video of the ultrasound whenever I can figure out how to get it to load. Yaaaay for boys! :)

Boy or Girl??????

I have to say, I woke up this morning with a bit of an extra spring in my step. I mean, I've been counting down the days till this Dr. appt. for about 2 weeks. I made it through a crazy day of 7th graders and booked it out of school to make it for our 4:30 with Dr. New. I had my DVDs in my purse, swung by to pick up Adam, and we were on our way.

The excitement was building as we waited in Grapevine traffic. The moment arrived, and we pulled into the hospital parking lot. I showed Adam the way, and we punched the 3rd floor button for the office. We walked up to the door, went to push the handle, was locked. The lights were off inside, and the waiting room was suspiciously absent of patients. I looked at Adam, and he was reading the sign on the door that said the office was closed....was always closed at 12:30 on Fridays.

A bit bewildered, we headed back down to the elevator, down to the 1st floor where we got back in the car and drove home. I have no idea what happened. I looked at my calendar, and there was the appt.....4:30 on the 21st with Dr. New. So, for all of you who were will be just a bit longer. Who knows when my appointment is/was supposed to be. Pregnancy 1, Kristen 0.

This year we had our 2nd annual Spencer/Dean/Spencer Christmas tree farm extravaganza. We are currently looking for a new title for this prestigious event, so if you have any suggestions...we're open. We chose Kadee Christmas Tree Farm in Greenville, TX this year, and, although it was warm, it still felt a bit like Christmas. Below is the proud specimen (no, not Adam...) that we took home with us. It looked perfect out there.... And then they shook all the dead needles out of it, and it looks a bit lacking all decorated in our apartment....somehow less of the tree we thought we were getting and a bit more Charlie Brownish...This ornament, however, could make even the scrawniest of trees shine. This ornament was won in a white elephant gift exchange 2 years ago. Lane Brown, I believe, had been the previous proud owner. I'm pretty sure it's a collector's item and worth a fortune.
The rest of the picture are Adam playing with Avery. I'm sure it violates a "blogger code of conduct" to post so many pictures of another parent's kid, but I just couldn't help myself!! I mean, how cute is she!!

Adam taught her all kinds of neat tricks!!

I'm counting down the days till the 21st...possibly THE day when we get to find out the sex!! I can't wait!!!
