"I enjoyed the picture of the baby but I must say my stomach looks about the same as Amanda's right now! haha no im not that fat."
I just hope I remember this when Mike's wife gets pregant... Here's to hoping!
P.S. I'm not mad -- I really did laugh.... Today must have been a good day! :)

Here is my belly but, just for the record... I don't think I am as big as I look in the pictures.(Here's hoping, right?)

Anyhow, while learning about communication disorders he had us watch this video. (Oh and I just figured out how to post youtube videos to my blog...)
After that, for "FUN" we watched this one! (You have to take yourself there, b/c I try to keep politics out of my blog)
Oh, and just to be slightly educational: Kids with communication disorders are often confused and frustrated because they don't understand why what they are saying isn't clear and doesn't make sense.
|You Are Checkers|
You're able to compartmentalize and focus on the essentials.
You appreciate simplicity. You can see the layers of complexity and beauty in anything.
You are also playful and good natured. You don't take life too seriously!

It isn't one of those things you go around telling people because you either hate it or love it! I think Black Friday is the marketing greatest scheme around but, I also know that there are some very good deals!
This year -- I get to go shopping in Raleigh on Black Friday (and I already have a date) and I am so excited. I wouldn't know where to start if we stayed in Charlotte so, going home is the best option.
Last year Dan and I joined in the glamor of Black Friday to get a Christmas tree. Wal-mart had really spectacular deals on Christmas trees so -- we saw the add in the paper, decided we wanted and we were going to get it. We drove all the way to Brier Creek (b/c they are bigger and we thought they would have a lot more) and waited to get it. We got in, got our Christmas tree and checked out. As we were carrying the Christmas tree to our car I saw printed on the box, $59.95 (or something along those lines) the Christmas tree was not on sale. It was not a black Friday special and though Dan and I laughed at our selves .... and still do I still love Black Friday!

I don't know how a person deals with a situation like this. I especially don't know how a 17 year old girl deals with a situation like this.
I wish I could say the "worst" was over but, I imagine that there is a point where it has to get worse before it gets better.
Just wanted those of you who have been keeping this family in your thoughts and prayers to know what was going on.
I really appreciate your love and support.

Unfortunately, she went into labor this morning and has already delivered one of the babies. It was only about 10 inches long and only lived a few minutes.
She hasn't delivered the 2nd baby yet but, things aren't looking so good.
If you could keep her in your prayers that would be great. I will keep you posted about the second baby...
The report I got from my mother-in-law was that she had hair like Audrey (the older sister) a prominent nose, big upper lip and a round head.... I don't know if I agree with all of that but, she's cute.
Here are some pictures (because we all love babies...right?)....
Oh... But, the sad thing is Dan and I probably wont actually see baby Claire until July. :(

|You Are a Blue Crayon|
You are a loyal person, and the truest friend anyone could hope to find.
On the inside, you tend to be emotional and even a bit moody.
However, you know that people depend on you. So you put on a strong front.
Your color wheel opposite is orange. Orange people may be opinionated, but you feel they lack the depth to truly understand what they're saying.

I am SO ready for the election to be over. I got an e-mail today say that Obama was going to visit our school. Yippie....
"UNC Charlotte announced today that its College Democrats student organization will host Democratic Presidential candidate Senator Barrack Obama for an election-eve campaign event on Monday, Nov, 3 at approximately 5:30 p.m.
The event will be held on the Hayes Recreational Fields in front of Duke Centennial Hall and Grigg Hall on the Charlotte Research Institute campus.
ENTRANCE ALERT: Vehicles entering campus on the day of the event, Monday, Nov. 3, should use the U.S. 49 main entrance, the John Kirk Rd. entrance, or the Mallard Creek Rd/Mary Alexander entrance."
There was more but you don't care. My thought.... Really? Today? I think this is just crazy. If I were running for president or any other political office I would not interfere with the traffic patterns of college students who run late for class on a daily basis. I'm just saying, I don't have class on Monday but, we only live a mile or two from the school and I come home from work around 5:30 or 6:00. Here is my thought -- go enjoy a day with your family and your kids. Stay out of my way and please, leave us alone.
(Granted -- my irrational state is not only a reflection of this election... but, its a good excuse.)
Poor Dan has class from 2:00-3:15...
P.S. I would not be any kinder about the subject if it were McCain... Now, if it were Barr --then they may be on to something... (Kidding)
