Florida=Pure Excitement!!!

So we leave for tomorrow. This will be my second Christmas in Florida! It's not like we where going to have a white Christmas anyway... i mean there is a chance of snow here but it's been such an awkwardly mild winter... no icy roads... or parking lots for that matter... no slipping and almost falling on my butt... which i could always do without (they don't sand or salt the road... why bother it's just going to rain and wash it all away and then snow again)! No just rain... since after Thanksgiving it's been mild here! We actually re-insured my car, you see during winters here my car couldn't even make it to the center of town and we live a block away! Don't get me wrong the few days it was bad here Becca crashed her car (on my street actually) and Amy crashed April's SUV (that's right a 4- wheel drive car can slide too) but that was made apparent last year when Bryan crashed our 4- runner into his truck... kinda ironic actually!

Anyway it makes it kinda nice cause then i don't have to take my poor baby out in the freezing cold! I bundle him up like crazy when it's snows but still run from the apartment to the car to the store to the car back to the apartment... poor guy i don't want him to get cold! He has some of the cutest snow suits ever though lol!!!

Well we leave for Florida tomorrow with a stop in VA in the middle! I am so super excited i cannot wait!!! Oh i miss all of my family in the lower 48 so much!!! I am so excited my Mother-in-Law and I are going shopping as soon as we get there and then sometime while where there we are going to our yearly Spa Trip! I can't WAIT!!!

~BTW it's almost five in the morning in FL and it's 78 degree's!!!!!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHH YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tommy Update

So as some of you know little Tommy had an enlarged Kidney during his 20 week ultrasound. This ultrasound sent us to Anchorage a couple weeks later. We where told that it wasn't that bad and it was likely that it would correct itself before he was born. So he had an Ultrasound on the day he was born and all looked normal... well you must be asking yourself why i bring it up now... Well we had another ultrasound and it is Enlarged again... i guess babies are dehydrated when they are born and that is why his kidney looked normal.

This completely scared me... so many things went through my head... luckily we went and spoke to one of the doctors and he explained everything. And there is nothing we could have done to prevent this and there is a 1 in 10 change that he will need surgery but it usually fixes itself. So we won't find out wether or not he needs the surgery until the 28th of January and if he does he has to be 6months old to have it... Also this is pretty commen and it's nothing to worry about... so we'll just keep praying and be thankful that he is healthy otherwise.
