I (apparently) am not technologically savvy enough at this point to get those pictures to you. I am trying to get still shots from a DVD if anyone has any ideas!

Yet another thought about friends. I was reading this book by Kate Jacobs called The Friday Night Knitting Club (highly recommended) and came across this quote:

"The thing is...that when you're young, you always think you'll meet all sorts of wonderful people, that drifting apart and losing friends is natural. You don't worry, at first, about the friends you leave behind. But as you get older, it gets harder to build friendships. Too many defenses, too little opportunity. You get busy. And by the time you realize that you've lost the dearest best friend you've ever had years have gone by and you're mature enough to be embarrassed by your attitude and, frankly, by your arrogance." (pg. 137)

Wow, this really hit home for me! I have felt in the past that if a friend really wanted to talk to me they would...after all a friendship is two ways right? As I have gotten older I am starting to realize that sometimes, oftentimes, it is up to ME! I have gotten lazy and arrogant in my friendships and before I know it, they will all be gone. I love all of the wonderful people who have surrounded me in at various times in my life, and I miss the support system of my great friends. Thank heavens Steven and I are bound by eternal ties, or who knows when I'd talk to him next because I'm busy!

Take some time to think of those friends that you haven't heard from in a long time. Those friends that you love and miss. Email or call or contact them in some way because chances are they are missing your friendship too! Looks like I have some catching up to do this week!

It's A....

GIRL! On Wednesday Steve and I were able to go have an ultrasound and find out that another little lady will be joining our family in February. I am so excited, and although Steve is acting somewhat stoic about the whole situation, I know he is very excited too. I think he's just worried this little girl will have him wrapped around her finger!
Besides seeing our precious baby, we were able to see that things are looking good at this point. She's developing nicely and has beautiful long skinny legs and feet just like her mom and dad....ahem, I mean just mom. The ultrasound was the coolest thing I have ever seen and I could have stayed in there all day just watching her move around. I thought I would be emotional at seeing my baby but I was just in awe of the technology!!! Hopefully I will be able to post one or two pictures from the ultrasound. We'll see if I'm that technologically savvy!
