Christmas with the Petersen's!

We had a wonderful Christmas. It was rushed and at times a bit hectic. With both of us working, we were wrapping until 2 am on Christmas Eve, but hey, we were together and watching The Christmas Story on a loop, so it was all good. Here are some Hi-lights!

The Ballet at School

So today was Hailey's Winter Show. Her class sang some songs and the girls were all in a ballet. It was pretty darn cute. These pictures are all from my blackberry, so they aren't great. I didn't bring the nice camera of course because I was too busy taking video for Shon because he was at work! She did wonderful and looked adorable, of course!

The Christmas Tree is up . . .

So I always tell people that I long for the day when our kids are old enough to leave home alone and babysit one another. McKenzie asks to stay home alone all the time while I pick Hailey up from school and promises not to get scared. I obviously won't let her, but it's a nice thought. Well we are no where close to being able to leave them home alone yet, but last night, I was a bit spoiled and had a glimpse into the future of what it will be like to have some older children! Shon and I set up our very fake Christmas tree, and then just got out two boxes of ornaments. The girls did it all!! They opened every ornament box alone and put them on the tree alone! WE literally sat on the couch and watched. It was glorious. WE only had to add some to the top for the last 15 min. or so! Hailey was great at spreading the decor around, McKenzie needed some direction. She would put about 3 ornaments on one branch if I let her. It was wonderful, all the beauty, none of the work! Here are some pics:

Arizona Trip . . .

We packed up for a long weekend in Arizona this past Friday. Took the kids to the Grand Canyon and to the Polar Express train in Williams. It was fun and unusual to be cold! Hailey kept calling the Grand Canyon a Hole. She kept wanting to go look at the big hole and acted as our tour guide.
About to board the Polar Express in our Jammies. McKenzie getting her bell from Santa. Her face after he walked away, was priceless. . .

An add on to my previous post.

So here it is at 6 months exactly, with my little shadow, who just told me she doesn't love the new baby, by the way. Hailey loves to feel my tummy jump around, so at least one of my children won't try to smother this new little life!

Still Kicking . . .

So I didn't have any adorable pictures of my children and haven't done anything exciting except for work in the last few weeks, but thought I would post something anyway since it has been a little while. This is where we are headed this weekend:Yup, the Grand Canyon. We are just doing a quick trip with my whole family and I can't wait to get outta this zip code! We will only be gone from Fri. to Sunday, but I can't believe Shon and I both don't have to work! We are taking the kids to the Polar Express train ride on Saturday, which should be so much fun and get us in the mood for Christmas. I could use some stinkin Christmas cheer right about now.
Other than our big 2 day vacation that we are taking in 2 years, and possibly many more, I am growing. People can't believe I am only 6 months pregnant and ask often if I am having twins at work. This lady came in last night asking me for nursing bras, she was exactly the same size as me, height, tummy and all, but when I asked her when she is due, she said 4 weeks, to that I had to reply 3 1/3 months!!! Not cool, I am a petite girl, but apparently have the uterus of a woman about to give birth! Which reminds me, I should upload a new pic soon. Enjoy your week everyone!

Some Pumpkin patch/Halloween fun

This year, Shon's sister made these adorable Pixie Fairy cosutmes for the girls. They were wonderful and the girls were so excited to learn the day after Halloween that we didn't have to give them back to Aunt Brook. Thanks for sharing your amazing talent with us Brook!!

Some October Updating . . .

Life has stayed pretty much the same for the Petersen's! We are finally getting used to the idea of another girl in our house. I think after having two girls already and going through every little girl name the first two times, we have exhausted all girl names we can agree on. So we may just name her GIRL 3. Or 3 for short. So the girls are doing great, Hailey still loves school and McKenzie still very much enjoys her "alone time" while her sister is getting an education. When Hailey gets home, she tries to teach her things and it's cute.

I am growing, but feeling good. I wish I didn't have to work pregnant. Finding proper work attire and standing on my feet for hours on end is getting old. Here are a few pics of the October happenings around here.

This was crazy hair day at school, and this is about as crazy as Hailey wanted to get.

So . . . . The Verdict is in . . . .

It's a third baby GIRL for the Petersen family. I thought for sure we were going to have a boy finally. Crazy, I made the tech check a few times to make sure and it is indeed another girl for us. Hailey is a little upset, she wanted a brother. McKenzie could care less about any of this. Makes it easy on the parents to welcome another girl to the group, but the thought of us doing 3 weddings one day has me nervous. Wish us luck!
