Baby Surprise!!

On Christmas Megan went into Labor.
She wasn't feeling the best kind of all morning and afternoon not thinking to much about it,
but soon enough Dev and Meg were at the Hospital because she was having contractions!!
All of us were at Debbie and Scott's waiting anxiously by the phone to hear more and more about what was going on.
We couldn't believe our ears when we heard she was already dilated to a 3.
They gave her some meds to help slow down the labor.
It worked for a few hours but the next morning she was up to a 7.
So instead of slowing it down they decided to speed it up!
So as soon as Griff got off work we headed straight for the Hospital to see them.
They both were in such good spirits it put a big smile on my face!
After we saw them we sat in the waiting room and waited for our cute nephew to arrive!!
At 6:53pm little Beau Scott Bland was born.
He was 4 pounds 11 ounces and around 17 inches long.
I could not wait to see him.
Devin came out to tell us all about it!!!

The next day we headed back up to Hospital to meet him!
For being 9 weeks early he is doing really well!!
Good weight and length, and is feisty.
He is Jaundice so he does have to be under some lights.
But other then that and what I know is that he is doing really good!!
He no longer has the cap on his head and only has some tubes to help him breath and feed him.
Proud Uncle Griffin!!!
He couldn't get enough of him.
He just starred at him and soaked him all in.
Touching his cute little foot!!
He loves to have his foot out of the blankets!!
No longer all hidden!!
He is adorable.
Love him so much!!!
(ps Meg I stole these from your blog! I couldn't resist they are just so dang cute :D)
What an experience for Meg and Dev!!
You guys are parents.
We are so excited for you both :)
Hope things start to settle down for you and you get to relax a bit more!!
We love you and are so excited and proud to be an Aunt and Uncle to your little Beau!!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas


Everywhere you go!!
We stayed the night at the Bland's on Christmas Eve and woke up around 7 to do gifts!!
Boy did Santa spoil us this year :D
Griffin's Puma Golf Shirt from me!
He sure has gotten into golf this year so he got a lot of really nice golf things!!
My cute boots and pants from Griff!!!
He picked it out all by him self.
He did such a good job I love them and have already worn them.
He loves his Cherry Chocolates!!!!

After the Bland's we went over to my families house.
and we were very spoiled/loved their too!!!
We got some amazing gifts!!
We got my parents a Computer Chair!!
Then we headed over to my Grandma Paynes house for her annual Brunch and Gifts!!
The White Elephant Game with Apples to Apples for Gift Cards!!!
We ended up with Red Lobster!!!
Can't wait to use it.
Once we were done with Grandma's we went back to Griffin's families and hung out had dinner then back over to my parents for another dinner and more gifts!!! Yes more gifts!!!

Wow Thank You to you all!!!
You guys all spoiled us so much.
We couldn't have asked for anything more.
It was a crazy day running around and seeing everyone but we did it.
I am sorry if we missed anyone or didn't spend enough time with some of you.
It is so hard to share Holidays with multiple families.
I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas!!

On the Eve of Christmas...

Griff and I went to my Grandma Anderson's for our annual Christmas Eve party.
We had a very yummy dinner and did gifts.
Thank you Grandma and Grandpa for the money it will be put to good use :D
When you are younger you get to exchange gifts with the cousins but as you get older you don't get to do the gift exchange you get to play in the White Elephant game.
We put in a movie with a blanket and candy for our gift.
And after many exchanges we ended up with a nice snow scrapper and Cold Stone gift card!!
So excited about it!!
Once the party was over we went over to Griffin's family for our Eve Sleepover party!
We had a funny White Elephant gift exchange here!!
So we had wrapped Tampons and Sexy Love Spray!!
It was so so so funny...
.. Grandma Call was over with us and she picked one of our gifts to unwrap!!
Griff and I both knew what is was under the paper so we were crying from laughing so hard.
As she was unwrapping she said "maybe grandpa can use this!!' Made it even more funny.
Once she got it unwrapped her mouth dropped and she started to laugh!!
It was the Tampons!!!
Hahahha Highlight of the night!
Dev got the Sexy Spray and loved it so much hahah jk!!!
What a fun game I haven't laughed that hard in a long time.
We stayed up pretty late playing Curses and a form of Murder in the dark.
Then off the bedy by we went!!!
What a great Christmas Eve!!!
