Amelia at 28 Weeks

My little girl is beautiful. The technology to see her before she is born amazes me. We took the kids with us for this visit too. They couldn't believe how "real" she looks now. More than ever before, they want her to come home. I keep telling them that we have to keep her safe inside mommy for two more months and then we can hold her. She is worth the four times a day that I am having to check my sugar levels. I feel like a human pin cushion. The doctor put me on medication for Gestational Diabetes. Fingers crossed this goes away after she's born. With my history, I could be one of the lucky few that keeps the condition even after the baby is born.

Almost Christmas!!

Everyone in the Tingle household is excited about Christmas this year. I can't wait for Santa to visit. I love this time of year. The lights are beautiful and I love the Christmas carols and the old Christmas movies. I've watched several of them already this season, including three different versions of A Christmas Carol.

Papa Jerry

I snapped these pictures when Daddy and Momma came by to pick Destiny up for their Thanksgiving trip. The girls hadn't seen Daddy in a while so they were just being crazy and wild. I kept calling im Daddy and tey kept telling me that he wasn't Daddy. It was so funny explaining again that I was talking to MY Daddy not theirs.

Happy Thanksgiving

It took me forever to get around to posting everything that has happened since Halloween. We spent Thanksgiving at Neil and Jennifer's new house. It's a beautiful house and it's perfect for entertaining large groups...loads of space for everyone. We celebrated Riley's birthday too. Destiny went camping with my mom and dad and for a whole week at Indian Springs. They had Thanksgiving dinner at the campsite. I took a couple of days off of work and really enjoyed my time with Peyton and the kids. We even put up the Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving. The girls are so excited about Christmas this year. I love this four year old stage. They are still very cute as they discover the world. Sabrina is writing letters, numbers and making beautiful drawings. Samantha is still making up her own songs and playing on the computer. Destiny is doing well in school. She is learning her multiplication tables this fall. I am disappointed that I didn't take more pictures over the Thanksgiving holiday.
