Finally I can post this!

It's a GIRL! Well delivery is the only way to know for sure but when we did the ultrasound we saw the 3 lines :) I gave my mom and Piggy's mom an ultrasound picture for their birthdays. I hadn't seen my mom in a while so I ended up giving it to her Christmas day. I know she reads here sometimes so I wanted to wait until she got her gift before I posted.

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas! I am about to upload Christmas pictures so I should be back soon!! :)

Oh My Gosh... It's SNOWING!!!

Here in south Louisiana we have SNOW. Not the normal 'Louisiana snow' *icy rain* but actual SNOW!!!!!!

On a different note, KK has been battling staph infections. Yesterday they decided to lance one to test it and see what the deal is. I NEVER want to have to do that again. He SCREAMED!!!!!! I've never had one but I'm sure it's painful. I should probably mention, it was on his bottom so sitting down was not a very pleasant task for him. After fighting to get his prescription filled we came home and I gave him some pain medicine. This is how he looked after it kicked in.

And to end this.. I am going have my ultrasound this afternoon. We are hoping for a GIRL!!!!

My 'Plan'

I've decided I want to try something for a few months. Instead of focusing so much on budgeting I am going to start focusing more on planning. I am hoping that by doing more planning other things will begin to fall into place. I realized that I was putting all of my effort into budgeting and getting good deals, etc.... BUT what good is a basket full of cheap groceries if you can't put them together with the things you have at home to make a complete meal!?!? We would end up having to go back to the store and in the end we spent more money that we would have, had I just planned ahead of time.

I am going to try and be more faithful to menu planning. I make the plan and I try to stick to it but for some reason by the end of the week it just falls apart. I am going to start planning breakfast, lunch, dinner, morning snack, afternoon snack, and something for Piggy to bring for lunch. Good luck to me!!! :)
