Well friends, we are going to be in need of a new name for our blog address. Guess why? We are no longer going to be the "Douglas Family of 4"!!!
Yes, that's right. We do, in fact, have one more reason to be thankful. Baby Douglas #3 will be here in July. Big sister Mary Margaret is already consumed with the thoughts of having another sister. I tried to prepare her that it just might be a brother, but she would have nothing of it. "Mommy, I'll handle it. I'll just have a talk with God."
We are overjoyed and are praying for a healthy baby!

MM was so excited when she saw her cake!
Grandmarmie came to visit us yesterday. She brought lots of goodies. She loves to spoil our sweet girls!!!
She brought the girls matching Pottery Barn Snowgirl PJs. They will so be wearing these soft snuggly pajamas Christmas morning (and many other mornings in between)
She also surprised Mary Margaret with a gift that both she and her little sister will enjoy. The Pottery Barn play tent. How cute is that!!! The girls moved right in and loved "peering out the windows"! What a fantastic surprise!!!!

Halloween 2009 was a huge success. We started trick-or-treating around 2. We visited with family first. Then we went to a Halloween Party held at the Simmons' household. It was oh-so-fun. Chassey is the ultimate hostess. We went on a hayride and all the children LOVED it. Halloween was indeed a fun night!
Mary Margaret wanted to be "Annie" once again this year (yes, for the third year--she was "Annie" when she was 2 and 3 years old). Her first "Annie" costume was too small. It was made by one of my gifted students at the time, "C". "C" was in the 4th grade when she made it. Seriously. This little girl has talent! It runs in her family (C's mom was the one that painted MM's nursery). MM needed a new "Annie" costume so we got in contact with "C" and her mom and a new precious costume was created. Check out C's mom's blog --- Yelli Kelli. Both C and her mother, Kelli, have Etsy stores and are highly talented and creative. You'll be amazed!!!

Here is the living room. We had the wall heaters taken out all over the home (there were 15 total--wow). We kept the fireplace mantle but did have new tile installed. We also were able to keep the cornice boards, though I did not use them in the living room (I painted one and am currently using it in the dining room). We also added an overhead light fixture. The floors were chipped up and the hardwoods underneath were restored and refinished. The walls, ceiling, and trim were all painted.

A sweet little one that secretly enjoyed the many M & M's that she found in the pantry (and she is wearing her Build-A-Bear's Halloween shirt).
