All Is Well

We're still a family of 4, but expecting this baby any day now. Matt got a fortune cookie the other night that said:

A short stranger will soon enter your life with blessings to share.

We are still waiting.

Mollie is now officially on winter break. Saturday, she and I went to see the Nutcracker at USC Aiken. She had a great time and was pleased to get a lot of comments about how cute her outfit was (she picked it out). The camera is already packed in the car ready for the hospital trip.... I guess I'll have to pull it out and post a picture! We were going to grab a bite to eat and then head home, but decided to go see the Christmas lights in Hopelands Gardens. We had attempted to do this last weekend, but they were closed due to inclement weather so we decided to take advantage of the clear (but cold) night. Matt and Lucy met us for dinner and light-viewing. We also ran in to some friends we hadn't seen in a while... so it was a good visit.

Mollie and Lucy are both feeling good, full of Christmas spirit, and enjoying having grandpa here visiting. We baked cookies last night and plan to decorate them today.


  1. Hope that short stranger either arrives soon or in a week or so, talk about cutting it close to christmas! Hope you all are well and getting into the festive season!

  2. he/she will arrive on your birthday! love that fortune!

  3. I love the fortune cookie! Best wishes for the holidays.

  4. I love the fortune cookie message--it is so very appropriate. we are sending all our very best wishes, for the birth, for Matt's back, for Christmas and for a family that deserves all the very best in the new year!
