Baby Bumbles Update

We are pleased to announce that on Christmas morning we opened our envelope and found out that we will be blessed with a ........Girl!

We confirmed it with another ultrasound on Monday, December 27th.  We are so excited for this new blessing and can't wait to meet her.  We have chosen to call our new little girl Bug.

The bottom of Kimber's left foot.

Even though we are high risk our pregnancy is going great.  We are at 20 weeks as of Christmas Eve, so we are half way through.  We received a 3D/4D ultrasound for Christmas, so we are excited for February when we will go and have it done.

Kindergarten Weeks 12 - 15

I'm sorry that I have been missing lately, but with the holidays I have been way to busy.  On top of the usual gift buying and wrapping Bee and I baked 20 dozen cookies and 4 loafs of banana bread.  Bee was my sugar roller and banana smasher.  I am going to do a quick wrap up of the weeks we missed in December.  Thank you for your patience. 

Week 12
Welcome to Green Eggs and Ham week.
Do you like green eggs and ham? That is the question of the week and the beginning of the silliness.

This book is great no matter how many times you read it and it's fun for the kids to help "read" too. The rhyming words make it easy.

This week for our craft we made a color wheel and discussed how mixing primary colors makes new colors.

Week 13
The Little Fir Tree by Margaret Wise Brown is a beautiful example of a father's love for his son.  The pictures are beautiful and Bee loved it. 

This week for Craft we made our own Jesse Tree. It was a new idea for us and we really enjoyed not only the pictures but also the daily readings that went with it. 

Week 14
What would your true love give to you?  A traditional Christmas Carol turned into a beautiful book.  Jan Brett illustrated the Twelve Days of Christmas.  Glory did enjoy the book, but some of the days were out of the order that she was used to.

For Craft this week we found a 12 Days of Christmas coloring book and Bee made her own book.  She loved being able to show off her book to the family.

Week 15
What happened the night before Christmas?  It isn't truly Christmas until you read The Night Before Christmas. 

This week we learned about reindeer and Bee drew a picture of one.

I'm sorry this post seems so crazy but I hope Week 16 will be better. Stay tuned for the week of the moon and bats.

30 Days of Thankfulness - Days 25-29

Day 25

I am thankful for this blog.  I enjoy being able to put down my thoughts and even vent my frustrations any time I want.  I also enjoy the comments that my AWESOME readers take time to leave.

Day 26
I am thankful for blog hops.  I enjoy finding new blogs to read and new readers for my blogs.  My favorite blog hop is Hip Homeschool Hop which is hosted by Sue at The Homeschool Chick.  I enjoy finding great new blogs about homeschooling.  You never know who has a great project that you might want to read some day.  I recommend you check out Sue's blog and join the Homeschool Hop every Tuesday.
Day 27
I am thankful for Netflix.  We don't have cable or satellite to try and save on money, but we have Netflix that we can watch instantly on our TV using our Wii.  It's nice to watch several episodes without commercials.

Day 28

I am thankful for our public library.  It is so nice to have a place to borrow books, DVDs, and CDs from.  I loving being able to go online and place our book of the week on hold for homeschooling.  The librarians at our location are very helpful too.


I am thankful for my cell phone.  I have T-Mobile's G1 and I love it.  I use the Google maps on it all the time and it helps me find where ever I am going in the Kansas City area.  I use the games to keep my daughter entertained for long waiting times for appointments.
