Last night we went to my nephew's 8th birthday party. They did a mad scientist theme, had experiments, a scientist, the whole bit. It was amazing to see these little kids so easily amused and in awe of everything from the black light to the fire tricks... those were the days! Then we hopped out to Wylie for our friend Ken's surprise party. It was at a place called "THE RANCH HOUSE" it was a pretty cool place, dance floor, great band, etc. I was a little nervous to be walking into a bar with Phil being pregnant! But i had a blast, it wasnt smokey, and my water on the rocks tasted excellent. I realized last night I have a great group of friends. All though we didn't party the night away, everyone is so much fun, and at least two of them have had a kid recently, so they know what its like to be prego and still try and be social! Although I can honestly say we haven't cut back much on our social life, this baby loves to be out and about!!
We got our test results back from our quad screen last week, all clear and all normal. Even though I didn't doubt we would be fine, I will not deny being scared out of my mind for 4 days until the doctor called to tell us everything is ok. No matter how healthy I eat, how much I walk and do my videos, some things you have no control over, and its a scary thought. Regardless of the outcome we would still be thrilled for this child and our future, but man was it great to get the A+ from the doc! Now we just need 10 fingers and 10 toes and we are all set!!
Holidays are here and going full steam ahead, I cant believe its a week before christmas, actually only 5 days, and next thing you know it will be 2009!! Well, to all my family and friends and everyone else.. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year! See you in '09!
