Thanks Granny!

(from Eli)

Dear Granny (really my Great-Granny),

Thank you so much for my new walker. Even though my feet don't quite touch the floor yet

I still loooovve it!

Thanks for my awesome Christmas present, Granny!

As I'm sure you figured out from my post yesterday, J.C. and I are having another baby! Little Zannis #2 is due on August 1, 2009 which means that our children will be just over 14 months apart. And yes, we planned it that way (I know I'd be wondering that if someone else had babies so close together). Please pray for a healthy pregnancy and a full-term healthy baby!

On to a different subject. J.C.'s mom showed me some of J.C.'s six month portraits the other day. The resemblance amazes me!


So, it definitely appears that Eli got his good looks from his daddy. Lucky guy! :)

Thoughts on a Thanksgiving Morning

Yes, I know that we're a little past Thanksgiving now, but I wrote this on the morning of Thanksgiving and am just now "getting around" to posting it :).

Dear Son or Daughter,

I learned just this morning that God is blessing us by bringing you into our lives. I can't tell you how excited and grateful your Dad and I are (and Eli and Layla, too, though they don't quite realize what's going on yet). You are already such a blessing to us and we can't wait to meet you! Happy Thanksgiving and welcome to our family.

Love, Mom

Could anything possibly be more disgusting than this?

Flame-broiled meat scented cologne by Burger King. Barf.

The website is pretty funny, though. Keep clicking to make it spray. You won't regret it.

I had the best of intentions...

Well, if you haven't gotten a Christmas card from me yet, then don't hold your breath. Despite my best intentions of being a good and domestic wife/mommy this year, I never got around to getting a good picture taken of us and ordering the cards.

So, Merry Christmas! I truly hope everyone has a wonderful holiday. Maybe I'll pull off getting the cards out next year. Maybe....
