Unc is the coolest!!

Jim carrying sleeping girls across the
street is becoming a pattern:)
He even occasionally stops to take a nap
We took our nephews and nieces sledding at Hoodoo
last weekend!  They all seemed to love it.
Aunt Brea was boring and sat in the warm truck
with my book since I'm not allowed to sled:(

Jim bullying poor Wesley

Here's the gang! Jim's mom and brother came and
went for a few runs themselves!

I tried to be tough and watch them but I only watched them
each go once before I retired to the truck.  It was freezing!!

Little Mags was so bundled up.
She loved sledding and even went down the
hill by herself at the end of the day!!

Here she is with Grandma

The girls were excited to get doughnuts after our adventure!
Maggie did her best to get the doughnut in her mouth

We've been really enjoying the company of our nieces and
nephews! Unc (it's what they call Jim) is their favorite!
He builds them super elaborate forts, takes them sledding
and buys them happy meals.  What more could you want
from an uncle?!!

23 weeks!

Update to the world:  We are all still alive and well.
Babies are growing steadily inside me and I'm still
amazed at the whole process of life.  
I'm very healthy and my doctor is very happy with my
progress.  He thinks that based on my cervix length,
I will carry these twinsies for a while, which is
I've been feeling them move for a few weeks, but
Jim got to experience his first baby kick the other night
and he was pretty excited!  

Jim is doing really well with his business.
Many are suffering in the construction industry these days
so we feel very blessed that he has been as busy as he has!

I'm still managing the cafe and trying to plan out how this 
summer is going to look with me all of a sudden having
2 kids!!  I'm definitely going to be home with them,
but it requires a lot of planning at the cafe to make sure
all my ducks are in a row before I take off for a few months.

We've been very blessed to live next to Heather and Jeff
this year and we got to do the pregnant thing together.
Having another pregnant lady, especially one that's done this
before is really helpful because I'm figuring out all
sorts of things for the first time.
We feel each other's pain, and each other's cravings, so
lots of late night fro-yo runs and fresh pineapple :)

Pregnant ladies have to do something with their hair
or they just feel bad about themselves......we got feathers!!
Here we are in all our glory!
Heather is at 38 weeks and I'm at 23 weeks

She'll be popping any day now and I absolutely
can't wait to meet Dahlia Leona Heidrick!

As for our names, Jim and I are keeping those a 
secret for now.....also, we haven't agreed on them yet:)
