Christmas Tree Farm

This year we took a trip to a local Christmas tree farm to look for our tree.  We thought this would be fun for Tori but she ended up being pretty grumpy until we got to the petting zoo :)

Tori loved the goats and the pony!  She has no fear of animals and loves to get up close to them.  She petted them until it was too dark to see any more!
 She loved the pony!
 We got to make ornaments out of the tree stump slice and some stamps and ribbon.  The perfect craft for a toddler since it didn't take long to complete.

 The tree farm was a fun little outing that we will most likely do again next year with all three kiddos!

28 Week Appointment

I had my 28 week appointment last week and both babies are still doing great!  Lizzi is measuring 2 pounds 9 ounces and Liam is 2 pounds 12 ounces.  I go back next week for my 30 week appointment and imagine I will be going weely after that.  My goal is still to keep the babies cooking until at least 34 weeks.  I am still trying to work until after Christmas which would put me at 32 weeks.  I have been feeling pretty good except for struggling to get comfortable at night.  Maybe it's the body's way of getting me used to only sleeping for an hour or two at a time.

Here is our sweet baby girl Lizzi!!!!  We finally got a picture of her pretty face!!!  <3
 This one is a little hard to see but it's both babies' hearts.  The large circles are their chests, the small dark circles with the arrows pointing toward them are their hearts.
 This sonogram is of the top of Liam's head....he already has some hair growing!!  It is labeled on the left hand side of the picture and its the fuzzy white line.  The sonographer said that 28 weeks is the earliest they see hair starting to grow so he may have a head-full by the time he's born (and explain all this heart burn!). 
 Another artist's rendering of fraternal twins at 28 weeks.....getting big!!  I'm wondering where all my organs are now?

Festival of Trees

We took a little trip to the festival of trees so Tori could tell Santa what she wanted for Christmas.  She LOVED all the trees, especially the huge tree covered with candy :)

 She had to ride the train twice.....and cried both times when we dragger her away!

 She did great with Santa this year!  She told him she wanted a horsey for Christmas and gave him a big hug.

 She hugged and kissed the little gingerbread baby cut out while we waited in line to buy their famous cookies!
 Yum!  The best part! :)
