We played the smell-the-melted-candy-bar-in-the-diaper game. We all had to smell the brown candy bar surprise in each diaper and figure out which chocolate bar it was. It was AWESOME to watch all of the guests smelling away! The guests also had to draw their best "baby" picture, but there was a catch. They had to draw it with the paper on top of their heads. All of the guests were good sports and had a great time.
We received so many wonderful gifts from all of our family and friends. Tons of clothes, toys, "buttpaste", blankets, and many homemade quilts and afghans. Thank you to all of our family and friends who came in town from Colorado, Minnesota, Indiana, Illinois, Maryland, and various parts of Kentucky.

Since I have had SO many requests to see my belly...from those I don't get to see very often...here's a shot for ya! I'm finishing up week 21 and still feeling great! I find that by the time I get home from work, gym, grocery store, then cook dinner, clean up the dishes, and finally eat...I'm POOPED!!! A love one told me I resembled a snowman...not sure if I agree...but snowmen can be kinda cute! :)

The most recent news of our family is that we are expecting twin boys in February or March sometime. I'm due in late March, but these little baby boys are going to grace us with their presence much sooner than that! They are to be named Lefty and Righty until we see their beautiful faces and make sure the names we've picked out match their personalities.
I'm still working as the office manager for Utley & Knowles CPAs, but am currently looking for someone to take over at the end of the year. I will then spend the next 2 months taking it easy (at my doctors demand) while my coworkers slave through yet another endlessly stressful tax season. Those two months will be filled with nesting, sleep, reading, and quiet time because I won't remember what those things are after March.
Eric has been very busy the last few months furthering his military career!! He was one of the 25 graduates of EFMB (Expert Field Medical Badge) class in September. It was two weeks of intensive intellectual and physical training to earn this badge which, according to the General who spoke at the graduation, is one of the hardest badges to earn that the military offers. 176 soldiers began the course and only 25 completed the last task which was a 12 mile ruck march in under 3 hours. I was there to see him cross the finish line and was so proud of him!!!
Two weeks later, Eric packed up and headed to Ft. Benning, GA to spend 3 weeks training to become an Airborne Dentist. The picture above is him getting his wings pinned on by his good friend, high school classmate of his from Forest Hills High School, and fellow soldier stationed at Ft. Bragg, Russ Keyser. HOOAH!!!
Audra thought it would be funny to see how many squares of toilet paper it takes to go around my chest, and not my belly...since my belly hasn't gotten big enough to surpass the top! Come on babies...GROW!!!! Trish, 7 months pregnant with a little boy, and the future best friend to our babies, picked the exact number of squares. (It's 11 to those of you who are curious!)
