Family Traditions - Winter Festival of Lights and a bump!

Last year, J, JOE and I all went to see the Winter Festival of Lights at a park not too far from us. While JOE was just over a year last year and wasn't really into it, this year, she was totally into it and kept saying "wow...beautiful" or "I love it momma".

It was so nice to see how excited she was to see all the lights and everything. We'll definitely continue to do this for as long as our kids enjoy it.

Anyways, here are some pictures from this year's visit. Its pretty much the same exhibit so I tried to post pictures that weren't the same as last year's.

 JOE now has a thing for lining all my hair products by our bed. Not sure why but she calls it her "choo choo train."

And then of course, there's her "lasso" to catch more of her stuff.

And here she is making sure her choo choo train is all set.

And incase you are wondering, she has a ton of real toys to play with but despite my telling her constantly "those are not toys", she would rather play with my hair products.

And here is my first bump picture with this pregnancy! I FINALLY have one. OK...if you look closely, you can make it out. Folks at work still don't know but I am guessing I'll have a real bump soon. Looks like I am definitely carrying the same way I did with JOE's pregnancy. 

The 21-week picture was taken the week of Thanksgiving. So while it does look a bit bigger than the 22 week picture, part of it can be attributed to bloat. I can't believe I am now more than half way there! It is going by so fast! 

Last Friday, J and I decided to go see a movie. We left JOE with her child care provider and did a little shopping before seeing Hunger Games. I love this movie theater because it has an Egyptian theme. Also, while there, I ran into Jamie from Handling with Grace. She has an absolutely beautiful family and she is just so nice in person! It was really good to meet her in person.

Hope you had a nice weekend! I am ready for my many blessings this week. Will post more on that later.


  1. Lol, Joe is soooo cute man. So much concentration going into that choo choo train. Wow already half way with #2. Time is going by so fast. The bump is sooo cute! Getting really excited for you!

    1. Thank you! Yup...she is into trains because she's seen a lot on Disney Jr. Hopefully, we'll be able to take her to see a kid's train show not close by us. We just need to find time to do it.

      Thank you thank you! The time really has flown by this time. I still can't believe that in a little less than 4-months, we'll be welcoming another member into our family!

  2. We're supposed to be going to the light show, too and I can't wait. It's always so much fun. Seeing how Joe plays with your hair care products reminded me of Christmas when my daughters were little, they liked the wrapping paper more than the gift... :)

  3. This looks like such a fun weekend. We are going to see the lights this weekend and I can't wait. This will be so much fun for the boys, can't wait.

    YAY for date night. I so want to see the Hunger Game but I might have to wait until it comes out on DVD :).

    What bump are you talking about? you definitely do not look pregnant, good genes girl, great genes.

  4. You definitely don't look pregnant! JOE is adorable I love all her Doc McStuffins toys!!
