Rachel and my mom joined me for the ultrasound on Tuesday where we found out we're having a GIRL!!!! We went out for a cup of coffee afterwards to celebrate:
While in Oklahoma last week the children and I got to meet Michael's maternal grandmother for the first time. We were so happy we could finally see her in person:
The children had so much fun being at Grandpa and Grandma's. They didn't want to leave and wondered if we could go back for Christmas.
Michael's brother took a lovely photo of the 2/3 of the family that were present for Thanksgiving. Such a great picture! If only we had the other two families pictured too!
We celebrated Rachel's 9th birthday the weekend before we left for OK. On Saturday she and I headed up to the Knit Shop to let her pick out some yarn.
Two days before Rachel's birthday we attended the International Festival in Indianapolis. It was great fun -- visiting booths from many, many different countries. Here is our friend Alex, who is of Lithuanian descent. The kids and I enjoyed a bit of Chinese food and some German Chocolate cake. I think we'll try to go next year.
