It's a BOY!

   We had an early ultrasound just for Christmas. We found out that we are expecting another BOY! I am very excited that Garrett will have a little brother to grow up with! We ordered cupcakes from Take the Cake bakery and had them fill the inside with blue icing. The outside looked just like regular cupcakes. No one in our family new we were even having the ultrasound, so they had no idea.
   We went to my parents house on Christmas eve. We all sat around and ate snacks. When everyone was finishing up, we told them we had the early ultrasound and in order for them to find out the gender of the baby, they had to bite into the cupcakes. Dad was acting so silly in this photo! He had to be dramatic. They were happy with the results. They were all hoping for a girl but just want a healthy baby!
   On Christmas day, we went to Clint's parents. I let him do all the talking. He did so good! He told them the same thing about our early ultrasound. He also made them all get a cupcake and take a bite at the same time! They were excited! The cupcakes were a big hit!
   We decided on the name Logan Cole Johnson. I named Garrett and Clint named this baby. I love the name. I think having 2 boys has a lot of pros! I hope they grow up very close and will take care of their momma when she gets old!
   Garrett had a fantastic Christmas! Santa brought him lots of goodies. The only thing he wants to play with is his new train table! He also loved the snow. He didn't want to eat breakfast, lunch, or dinner because he just wanted to play! He said over and over last night, "I wuv my twains!"

   Helloooooooo Camera! This is the Kodak Zi8.... and this is what I would like for Christmas. It is a HD video pocket camera. My principal has one and it looks so amazing. I could stick it straight in my pocket or throw it in my purse and go! I've read all the reviews and they all say this camera is much better than a flip camera. It holds 10 hours of HD video. I can also download my videos onto Youtube or Facebook to share with friends and family.
   On another note, I am finally 14 weeks on Friday. I am over the 1st trimester and feeling fantastic! I can't wait to find out if we are having a boy or a girl. I feel like my stomach is much larger at this point than it was with Garrett. I've heard you "look" larger with your second child. I have my next doctor's appointment on December 22. I hope to get another great report from my doctor. Garrett says he wants a "sissy". Daddy would like another boy. I just want a healthy baby either gender. :)
   Christmas is getting closer and closer and I am so excited. I can't wait to see Garrett's face when he wakes up on Christmas morning to find what Santa has left him!!! We plan on starting a family tradition by baking Santa cookies on Christmas Eve.
   Garrett's birthday is getting close so I've got to start planning his 2nd birthday party. All he wants is Thomas the train. Thomas party it will be. A friend of the family gave us free Thomas birthday invitations. He is going to be so excited.
   I hope everyone has a blessed day!
