Merry Christmas from the Seeley Family!

Merry Christmas to everyone! Here is  the card I designed for 2010. I thought it would be neat to make one that could double as an ornament for the family.

Why we need our new Minivan....and some other catching up!

So I realize I haven't been doing a very good job lately with keeping my blog up to date. But, this time I think I have a pretty good excuse. ;) Life became a bit more chaotic for me in November, shortly after learning the big news...

Yep, Ethan is correct. We are expecting another little bundle of joy in July! :) With that news though, has come the exhaustion...and the nausea. :( This has been a major bummer since I had such an easy pregnancy with Ethan and didn't have to worry about these things. Pairing that along with trying to care for a very active toddler this time too and I am one worn out mama! So, I have been sleeping a lot more and even napping while Ethan naps most days. I am almost 10 weeks along, so hoping that it won't be too much longer until I start feeling like myself again.

As the title of this blog suggests, yep, we got a new minivan! Once we have two kids plus Daisy, the 4-Runner will no longer cut it for those long drives North. So, Josh gracefully traded in his beloved sports car and sensible truck to get me a 2010 Chrysler Town & Country. I am in love with it already after just the first week. It is loaded out with all kinds of fun and useful options, including Ethan's personal favorite...the dual screen entertainment system complete with a few children's satellite TV stations! Sadly, he does throw a small tantrum if we go outside and it's not to get in the van, but I guess it's good that he likes it so much! Should prove to be helpful for those long drives.

Unfortunately I haven't gotten around to taking any pics of the new van yet, so I will have to update this later with those.

It has been a rough couple of months for Ethan with fighting an ongoing sinusitis battle. Two rounds of antibiotics and a decongestant and he has managed to come down with it yet again this week. :( He's a trooper, but the runny nose and congestion have got to be miserable for him. Unfortunately it seems I have also managed to come down with whatever he has this morning. Here's hoping we can get rid of this junk soon!

After a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner (including my first attempt at a stuffed turkey and real gravy) here at the house...

...we put up our Christmas tree for the first time on Thanksgiving Day too! :)

Ethan was able to help this year and it was fun to see the excitement on his face while he helped put on the garland and ornaments! :)

I even got the kids to pose nicely in front of the tree for me! :) Merry Christmas!!
