I know I haven't posted anything in a long time but I have been up to my ears in diapers, bottles, Dr appointments, and not to mention the upcoming holiday season!!

Megan is still doing great. At her 2 month check up (it was actually a week late...12/2) she weighed in at 8 pounds and 20 1/2 inches long! Yep, she belongs to our family....she loves to eat. LOL Although what she does eat usually comes back up because she has acid reflux. Dr. A. has put her on medicine 3 times a day and changed her formula. The combination has seemed to help some but she still has a couple of bad eruptions (like Mt. St. Helen's!!) a day. Other than that she is really a good baby. She really doesn't fuss least without reason like immunization shots.

Mac is still waiting to have his ear surgery. He was supposed to have it done back in November but a "tiny" problem arose. Mac had a seizure when they went to put him under anesthesia! He was telling me not to freak out but at the same time I wasn't allowed to see him for a few hours so they could make sure he wasn't going to have another seizure. So the surgery was put on hold till Mac could see a neurologist and have an EEG done. Well, the EEG came back fine and the neurologist has cleared Mac for surgery once he has a MRI done (that is on Monday). I am a little nervous about the MRI because they might have to sedate him if he can't lay still for it. They told me to plan on being there at least 4 hours...sigh....more waiting.

Allie got invited to join the junior honor society for her school. Last quarter she made straight A's and so far this quarter she is doing the same. She currently has a major obsession with the Jonas Brothers. Anything that can be covered with a poster has one of them staring back at you! (you can not see her bedroom walls!)

Krissy is all about drama! LOL...what can I expect from a 15 year old girl in high school? You could not pay me enough to be 15 and in high school again! Her grades are good, a little down from last year but nothing to worry about.

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Renee came to visit that week and we had a blast talking and stitching. We didn't get as much stitched this visit compared to other visits. We were too busy playing with Megan. :)

I have noticed that Megan won't really let me work on anything too big so I have been stitching up lots of ornaments. That actually works out for me because I was behind on my Christmas stitching. However, I did start Fairy Roses by Nora Corbett while Renee was here but I haven't gotten enough done for a picture yet.

Here are my finishes while I have been absent from blogging. :)

Renee's mom was sweet enough to send Megan a box of clothes and at the bottom of the box was this beautiful quilt.

Renee made this cute ornament for Megan. :)

I love them both!!

I hope I didn't bore you to death! :) Have a great night!

Your ornaments are adorable. I love the little dragon in Santa's hand.

Megan's new ornaments are very cute too. Love the beaded edge on the last one.

Sounds like you have a very full plate right now. I'll be sending good vibes Mac's way.

I was thinking of you just the other day, wondering how everything is going....
Sorry to hear about Mac,hopefully everything will calm down with him soon.
NOT envying you the teenage girls...oh no....mine will be there before I know it...ugh!
Megan is a sweetie and so happy she's doing well....I understand about Mt. St. Helen's - My Jacob was the same way...will they let you thicken the milk cereal?

My, you don't post for a while but you certainly did make up for it. With everything going on, and Christmas on top of it, no wonder you've been so busy. Glad that Megans's doing so well, and sounds like the rest of the household are too. Hopefully Mac does fine on the upcoming test and they can then go ahead with his ear. Loved all your ornament finishes, they're all adorable, your fingers have been quite busy too.

Megan is a doll! Glad to hear things are going good with her. Sorry to hear about about Mac-that had to be scary! Your ornaments are beautful! Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Your entry was far from boring. Megan is such a beautiful baby - hope the acid reflex calms down soon. Love all you stitching pictures too. It's always so much fun to see what others are doing.

It must have been a terrible scare when Mac had a seisure. Hope all goes well now.

Wishing you and all your loved ones a Blessed Christmas and a very happy 2009.
