My brother Patrick and his fiance Michaela were married on December 27th - such a nice celebration with close friends and family. Welcome to the family Michaela (and baby J too of course!). Hopefully the photographer got a picture of Cameron and I together - because judging by this slideshow Cameron's brother Andy was the most photographed baby-holder of the event!

Christmas in Flagstaff was so much fun this year! Our nephews Jameson (10 months) and Charlie (8.5 months) were really into opening all their gifts. We ate like kings at both the Wheelers and Wyatts, tried to enjoy the snow/freezing temperature, and got to see Patrick for probably the last time before he is deployed to Afghanistan.

Here is the belly shot for 25/40 weeks! Our baby is kicking a lot now and has favorite times and a favorite position she will make the most movements. I've seen my belly twitch only a little bit - I can't wait for more powerful kicks as she gets bigger. Cameron has felt her kick some too - but she's saved all her really crazy movements for right after he falls asleep. I've woken him up at 11pm, 2am, 4am - but I'm sure that game is getting old and I'll just have to be more patient - I just want her to kick daddy so bad! It's my Christmas wish! Right now she is about 1.5 pounds and about 13.5 inches long! The first week in January (28 weeks) we go for another elaborate ultrasound so stay tuned.

I hosted a wine tasting and cookie exchange party for the East Valley Married Women's meetup. Fifteen ladies attended and I had a great time having company over in the new house - the kitchen worked so well for this type of event! Feel welcome to come over and help me eat some cookies:)

The SES Christmas Party is always something I look forward to each year. All those Irish employees are so nice - they always have an open bar - and they know how to throw a good party. This year was no different. It was a formal 1970's theme at the ultra-snazzy W Scottsdale resort. We had a 4 course dinner, a full bar (Shirley Temple for me please), and a band that encouraged lots of 1970's grooves. We left before the tequila shots started - but it was still fun to meet all the SES people that so admire Cameron and all the hard work he puts in.
