Criminally Late

I asked Katie Rowten to make Ben's 30th birthday cake in December and she did such an amazing job. Unfortunately I came down with a 102 fever and strep throat on the day of his party and we had to cancel everything. But the cake was amazing and I so appreciate her doing it. Ben loved it!!

Thank You!

I just want to give a quick shout out to my husband who made sure I had a great birthday yesterday even if he wasn't in a celebrating mood. He fed me yummy food, bought me perfume, and took me to not one, but TWO bookstores and let me browse to my hearts content. Fortunately for him I get tired pretty early these days.

Thanks Ben, I love you.

One of the reasons I can't blog right now...

There is a lot of bad stuff going down this week. I can't turn on the news without crying, wanting to punch someone, or adopt 7 Haitian children. Meanwhile my best friend's family is being put through the ringer.

Lailah's sister-in-law Jamie has been serving as a Peace Corps worker in Kazakstan. Instead of sitting around on her butt and complaining about the world she's been out there trying to make it a better place. Jamie was in a car accident and is in a coma. She's been flown from Kazakhstan to an Air Force Base in Afghanistan to Landstuhl Military Hospital and now she's getting flown to Bethesda in the morning. Lailah and her family will have flown thousands and thousands of miles before the week is up and I know they are so exhausted. Please keep Jamie and the rest of the Morris family in your prayers.

Also please give to Haiti, there's not a person in this country that's worse off than anyone in Haiti right now. And you can tell Rush Limbaugh I said so. In fact you probably should, because I would punch him.

Halfway Mark

Surprise! You're getting a sister! Ben and I found out at the end of December that we're having another girl. We're really excited and Aidan has seemed more interested in this whole baby thing since we told her about getting to boss around a little sister. I don't think I could have handled giving Aidan's little baby clothes away, I cried just putting them in a box. They will be almost exactly 3 years apart.

I was 20 weeks yesterday so I'm already halfway through this pregnancy. It's going by so quickly this time! Probably because I don't have time to sit and think about it. I feel pretty good except that I am sooo much sleepier this time around.

Christmas in Fort Worth

Aidan loved helping decorate the Christmas tree at our house.

We got to have the first white Christmas in Fort Worth in 80 years! We didn't bring any snow clothing so we wrapped plastic baggies around her shoes.

The only thing Aidan wanted from Santa was a pink necklace, but Santa got her a doll house too.

Dear Disney marketing department. You win.

Aidan had so many presents she had to take a break from all the hard work of opening them.

Aidan is pretty sad Christmas is over. In fact every night before she goes to sleep she asks if Santa is coming in the morning and she cried when I took down the Christmas tree.
