Christmas Recap

It's hard to believe and a bit sad that another Christmas has come and gone, but it also means that baby's arrival is that much closer! We had a wonderful little holiday visiting lots of family, lots of fun, and LOTS of food!

Christmas breakfast at the Kesslers
We thought it was pretty funny how the baby got a stocking bigger than the rest of ours! Needless to say Bushman jr. is already getting spoiled by both sets of grandparents!

Family pics with the Bushmans, we had so much fun spending time with with our niece, Emma and our new nephew, Logan!

Our last Christmas as a family of two!

I have finally started to work on some of my baby projects, the first being getting some baby blankets sewn. I was able to catch some sweet sales at Fabricland and some online stores and I am looking forward to putting them to use! My next project will be out of my new Amy Butler sewing book that my mom and dad got me for Christmas, so excited!

This one for a boy, although daddy says that he's wrapping baby up in this no matter what the gender :)

This one for a girl, I love how plush the inside is!

And last but not least, a belly pic....

Christmas is coming!

December is nearing and I find myself ahead of the game in terms of getting ready for Christmas. I am pretty much done shopping for gifts and most are even wrapped sitting nicely under the tree! I figured I should take advantage of the evenings when I finally have some energy to accomplish something after a long day at work! I will be 18 weeks tomorrow and I can finally say I am starting to feel better, making life a lot more enjoyable!! It's also been very exciting to feel the little one moving around these last few weeks, what a joy to know a life is growing inside of me!! God is so good! I go for my second ultrasound this week, so we are very much looking forward to that. I will post some belly pics soon!
This weekend has been very exciting for us, we are an auntie and uncle again!! Tanya and Aaron had their baby Saturday morning and we went up to the hospital yesterday afternoon, so exciting!! I won't spoil the details, I will let the proud mommy and daddy share the news first!!
Well, I better sign off... it's just about gametime, GO GREEN!! (wow, never thought I would ever mention sports in this thing... my hubby will be so proud!)

I have an announcement to make, I guess the picture says it all! We are going to have a baby! We are so excited, God is so good! I'll admit, there was a time when I wondered if I would ever see that sight, my patience running thinner than it should've been. However God always seems to surprise me with His power when my faith seems to be lacking the most. We had been hoping for this miracle for quite some time and after a few visits to the doctor I was more-so anxiously anticipating a surgery date than a positive pregnancy test. But God had other plans, for which I am so thankful! My due date is May 2 (the day after my birthday!) and I am 10 and 1/2 weeks today. Yeah!! I am so excited for this adventure!

A Summer so Sweet

I can't believe summer is over, it's September already, the days are shorter and the air so much crisper. Every year, summer seems to slip away so quickly and this year was certainly no exception! I am grateful, however, that we were able to build so many memories this summer, I look back and realize how much we were actually able to do!

We loved being able to spend time with our niece, Emma! It didn't take her long to learn what a big goof her uncle is! We are also really excited to meet our niece/nephew due to arrive in November to Tanya and Aaron!

Daniel had the opportunity to meet up with Jordan Hendry from the Chicago Blackhawks when he brought the Stanley Cup to Nokomis.

We had an awesome opportunity to go to San Diego for a week in July. I had found
an unbelievable seat sale a couple of months prior and we asked my sister,
Steph if she wanted to come with us! We were able to see and do lots of stuff,
many adventures and laughs
were had!

We celebrated our two year anniversary shortly after the trip and we also took a couple of day trips to the lake with friends/family.

On the August long weekend my Dad took Daniel to a Riders game in Regina while Steph and
I hit the malls!

The next day we took a trip to the Crooked Bush with my family. It was probably one of the
strangest things I have ever seen, every tree in that bush grew crooked and there is
no explanation! On the way home we saw a funnel cloud which was really amazing to
see but somewhat scary at the same time!

In August, Daniel's dad took his staff from the store to see the Home Hardware car at the NASCAR races when they came to Saskatoon.

We also took a long weekend in August to go up to Madge Lake with Daniel's family.
Good times were had, boating, tubing, golfing, eating, and just hanging out!

Just this last weekend, we added another guy to the family! Miranda and Josue were
married in my parent's backyard! I tried my hand at making a cake and did a bit of decorating, it was really fun and I was honored to be able to do that for my sister! It turned out to be a beautiful day and we wish them the very best in their years to come! We love you guys!
After all the festivities we went up to Saskatoon to see the fireworks!

Although this year may not have gone exactly how we wanted or anticipated God is good and his blessings are abundant! I am so thankful for all He has given me and I look forward to all He has planned for us!

What I've been up to lately...

I bought a sewing machine with my Christmas money a couple of weeks ago and I have had a lot of fun trying to figure it out. I decided to make some curtains and pillows for our bedroom as my first project. It's been awhile since I've done any sewing and I am very much a beginner but I am excited about learning! Here are some pictures;

Nothing too advanced but I'm pretty happy about how they turned out, now what to do for my next project?

I haven't posted for awhile and I thought I should probably post some pics of my niece! Emma Rayne Bushman was born on December 15th to Daniel's brother and siser-in-law, Derek and Lindsey. She is such a precious little miracle and we are loving being auntie and uncle!

Proud Uncle and Auntie
Uncle Daniel's influence of course!

Well that's all for now...
