Glas Family Christmas 2009

Thursday, December 24, 2009

We are still here, and Bowen is not yet!

I have had many phone calls and emails wondering what is going on with us, thanks for being concerned!! We are fine, lets just say I have been very tired and uncomfortable lately!!!
My kids are just a beautiful and sweet as ever...
We have the cradle ready to go...
Bags are packed and ready to go...

Everyone is ready for Bowen to join us...

And Bowen is growing...

I have been 2 cm and 50% effaced for 3 weeks now, so that is frustrating!!! At my doctors appointment yesterday everything looked good and I have gained a total of 21 pounds. They are still saying Bowen could come any day and if he is not here by Jan 5th they are going to induce me that morning, at least we have an ending point now!!
I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas!!

Ready or Not...

Ready or Not, we are on the final countdown now!!

Align Center

A lady in our church made this beautiful bow for my hospital door and then mailbox.

We have cradle together, the car seat installed, everything washed, closets reorganized, pantry stocked, and bags packed!! At my Dr. appointment this week I was already 2 cm dilated and 50% effaced, which I know does not mean Bowen is coming tomorrow, but scared me enough to get ready just in case!!!

The kids and Jason are hoping for a Christmas Baby.

Catch Up Post (Pregnancy Pictures, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Tree)...

This is a catch up post!!!
Since we did not travel home this Thanksgiving some of our family came in shifts. We had a wonderful time with everyone and we are so thankful for the company! But I have been completely wiped out since everyone left, I hear that happens when you are in your 8th month of pregnancy!!
So, first are some pregnancy pictures to see how much Bowen is growing.

I am 34 weeks now and have gained a total of 19 pounds. Everything is going "perfect" and Bowen is doing wonderful. But then again how could I ever complain about anything! My favorite thing about the pregnancy so far is that Bowen goes crazy everytime he hears his Daddy's voice!!
Thanksgiving was wonderful and enjoyed having people in our home. I did very little cooking and cleaning, so that made it even nicer!! We also went Christmas tree shopping and got that decorated - Just incase Bowen wants to come early!!
We have so many things to be thankful for this year, it is some times overwhelming to me how Great our God is to us!!

Happy 4 year Gotcha Day to our Guatemalan Prince

Yesterday we celebrated Harrison's Gotcha Day!
We eat cupcakes and tell the story of how God brought each child to our family on their Gotcha Day. Harrison can tell you his story himself now, but he loves to hear about Guatemala and all the things we did on the day God blessed us with our first child!
Enjoying a cupcake.

I can not believe it has been 4 years!!
The picture below is when Jason held his son for the first time.

He will always be my baby boy!!!

So glad that God brought Harrison into our family!!!

Trunk or Treat

We had a bitter/sweet time at the Trunk or Treat this year held by our church.
Harrison and Mary Elizabeth had a wonderful time and looked so cute, however poor Harper was sick and unable to dress up in her costume. I was going to stay home with Harper, but was called to bring somethings to the church. So, we let Harper look around so she would not miss out on everything. Some friends that took Harrison and Mary Elizabeth around also filled up a bucket of candy for Harper. I was happy to be able to get some pictures of the event!
Mary Elizabeth went as a butterfly!
Harrison went as a fighter pilot!
(If you ask Harrison what he wants to be when he grows up, he says fighter pilot!)

One sick little Princess!

Our Sunday School class choose to decorate a car with the theme of Daniel and the lion's den. So, we used Jason's truck as our den, Jason as Daniel (since he is the teacher), and Dixie and Shelby as the lions. I called it the "Redneck" Daniel and the Lion's den!!!
So, this year not only did I have to get 3 costumes for kids, I also had to make Jason and the dogs costumes (all while being and FEELING 7 months pregnant)! Just part of the many blessings of being a mother!
Dixie and Shelby LOVED all the attention!!

Kids getting candy.

Daddy spending time with the sick one that night!

What a great event!!
Also, Harper is much better and back to her happy little self!!

Time on the farm...

We made one last trip down to South Georgia to see family and friends before Baby Bowen is born.
We had a wonderful trip and enjoyed our time on the farm.
These are just a few of my favorite pictures!
This was my grandmother's wagon that she used to haul wood to her house in the winter.

Playing in the cotton field.

Baby Shower in Georgia

We had a great time visiting family and friends in Georgia. We are so blessed to have received so many wonderful gifts for Bowen!
