Baby Magee!

Ryan and I are so thrilled to announce that Baby Magee is on his/her way and arriving in June 2018! We found out about this little one the day after we signed the contract for our home! Needless to say there was a lot going on but Ry has been super-husband lately in terms of packing and moving us all while the baby took every ounce of energy that I had! Here's a little bit about how my first trimester went:

  • I was truly only really nauseous early on- week 5 saltines were my jam but I was so lucky that I never actually got sick
  • I really have had more aversions than cravings- there were even a couple of nights that Ryan made dinner and it wasn't until I looked at the plate and realized that I was just not going to be able to eat it- sorry hun 
  • Fast food has been my weakness- literally never ate it before I got pregnant and now I can't stop- PDQ has been saving me. 
  • My sweet tooth that I lived and died by? Like totally gone. I can sneak a cookie here and there but baby magee is definitely a salty one. 
  • I am hungry ALL THE TIME- guys, this is not an exaggeration. I eat constantly. My stomach is a bottomless pit. 
  • The exhaustion has been real- I'm kind of terrified that it is never going to go away and I'm just going to be tired for eternity.  

All questions, comments and suggestions are welcome from here on out.

Christmas Traditions

One of our favorite Christmas traditions is getting matching pajamas on Christmas Eve from our parents. The boys gave mom's elves a hard time this year for buying them pants 4x too big (see picture above), but I have to say we outdid ourselves with the girls' pjs. The bottoms are from Gap and the tops are from Old Navy. Gap is sold out of this Christmas light pattern, but they have 4 other patterns and 40% off! Gemma and Edie's pajamas are also from Gap. Can you believe Edie fit into a 6-12 mo already??

Christmas 2017 was so much fun with the whole gang together. Be watching for more posts about Ryan and Christine's big reveal, family photos, our trip to Disney, and the Christmas video!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to you and yours from the sisters! We have the whole crew together this Christmas. It was the first time we got to gather around and watch our Christmas video from LAST year (oops, I procrastinated again)! We enjoy putting this together, mostly because our dad loves it so much, but also for the lifelong memories it captures. And now we will leave it here for you to watch if you want a peak at our crazy clan of clampetts celebrating Christmas in paradise.

And as Gemma would say, Happy Merry Christmas! And happy birthday, Jesus!

best holiday wishes,
