So, yes... I am expecting #3!!!! I am about 10 weeks along. We are so excited! The picture above is of the announcement that we had Brandon's parents, and my parents open as a Christmas present. It was so fun to see the looks on everyone's faces. 2009 will be busy in the Bonewell family. With two of my sister-in-laws pregnant before me, our baby will be grandchild #13. On the Coon side, our baby will be grandchild #32.


Showing off the new watches they got from Santa.

On the 23rd we went to the Magical Forest which is a little Christmas village. It's all outside and it was really cold. We enjoyed a ride on the little Christmas train and the kids loved all the lights.
On Christmas Eve we had a nice turkey dinner, then we went to mystic falls. In Sam's town there is an atrium type thing with trees that they decorate with lights. Then they have a free show. Their inside waterfall turns into a waterfall/dancing fountain/laser light show with Christmas music. It snows down on you while you watch the show, and we were still warm in the end, which is the part I liked. Then we went home to let the kids open presents from the Christmas mouse (pajamas).
On Christmas morning, we heard Denton get up at about 6 and we heard what he was thinking because he was talking out loud while he thought he was the only one around. "Where are the stockings? Santa must have come!" Then he sees the stockings... "I hope there's chocolate in there!" We had fun opening our gifts, then we drove to St. George and opened more gifts from the grandparents.

Depressing Christmas Songs

There's a Christmas song by Kenny Chesney that's been around for a few years called "Christmas shoes for momma." I remember the first time I heard it I was coming home from the hospital after just having had Denton. Anyway, everytime I hear that song I start crying. I only have to hear to first few notes to recognize the song and the waterworks start up. Now, I'm ok with songs that have real deep stories to them, but let's not play them on the radio. Seriously, it's embarrasing to be out driving around, wiping the tears at a red light and seeing the person next to you watching you to see if your ok. I just turn the station every time now. I want to be happy at Christmas time, not bawling my eyes out.

My Little Boy Turned 4!

Denton has been asking for months when his birthday is. Well, it finally came. Since his birthday was on a Sunday, we celebrated Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. On Saturday Grandma Bonewell got Denton ice cream and a dinosaur cake. Alisha, Zack, Katie, Taylor, William, and Joshua, and Grandpa Belt came over to eat cake and celebrate with Denton.

Sunday, we drove home and it was pretty uneventful, so Denton said it was his "pretend birthday." On Monday, we went to ChuckECheese and we all had fun eating pizza and playing the games. Denton finally agreed that he was 4 now that we had been to ChuckECheese.
