London shared his latest news on Facebook last week. His favorite color is now PINK!!
Speaking of thankful, Happy Belated Thanksgiving. There is so much to be thankful for this year-but I could fill a blog post with things from just this past week:
1) We spent Thanksgiving dinner with the Middletons'. Renee and her sweet family live about 10 minutes down the road from us, but the "small world" thing about it-Renee has known me my whole life. We grew up next door to each other back in Delray Beach. For as long as I can remember Renee babysat Ryan and me. She was that babysitter that a little girl looks to and hopes one day she can be just like her. She went off to college, I grew up as well and our parents remained neighbors for quite a while longer. About 15 years later we live in the same place again, just this time its in Virginia. What a small, crazy world.

3) There are so many gracious people who love this sweet
Baby Girl and have been spoiling her already. I am trying to snap
pictures of everything since those are guaranteed to last longer than
my memory... just a few of the goodies:
|As soon as J's co-workers found out we were having a little girl, they set her up-going to be a daddy's girl.|
|Shelley, one of the cheer coaches bought Baby Girl her first dress.|
|Aunt Shelly send a sweet lovey.|
|Mom (Claudia) has been sewing her heart out as soon as there was news of a Little One. She has made Boppy covers, buntings & nursing covers. So awesome.|
|Mirian (another co-worker of J's) & Carlos brought us this sweet pink set.|
4) J's parents have been in town this past weekend. It has been such a treat having them up here for an extended weekend. They have been working their tails off during their stay. So much for a vacation. They have been such a great help getting some major tasks checked off our list. Thanks to them we have a newly painted front door, house numbers you can see from the road, plenty of fire wood for the winter, a beautifully lit Christmas tree, & the start of Project Nursery. More than that has been done and it is so helpful. We took Sunday off and enjoyed brunch before we attended "A Christmas Carol" at Ford's Theater. We have been hearing that if you live in DC you have to experience that show in that venue. So glad that we did. For a history/government dork like myself, it was pretty awesome just to see the play in Ford's Theater.
The thankful list is endless, but most of all we are thankful to God for our family members and friends. You are each so special to us and we could not be more appreciative of your love and support for growing family. xoxo
