Merry Christmas All

I just posted a link below to our Christmas card because if you do, Shutterfly gives you a discount on your next order - and well, if you know me, you KNOW I love a good discount. But, I decided I would quickly throw up a real picture. My good friend, Jenny Savage came over with her family and was able to get a few good images. We opted to stay inside this time because it is really cold outside. I think she did a fantastic job, as she typically does. THANK YOU JENNY! ;)

I hope to post more later when I don't have a gazillion things on my to do list. But ... real quick ... everyone is doing well. We recently went to the cardiologist for all three littles. Max and Ivanna still have very small PFO's (upper chamber holes) in their hearts - which really are of no real concern and should continue to close. Ivanna's VSD (bigger lower chamber hole) has closed even a bit more since being home. Justus has smaller arterial pulmonary valves than desired, but the thought is that we will do a cath procedure later. He also has a small PFO.

Ivanna now outweighs Max and weighs in at 37 pounds. That is a 17 pound gain in one year! Max weighs 35 pounds and that is a 13 pound gain for him!

Ivanna no longer has a cast, but is now relearning to walk, and is quite stubborn about it. After all, who wouldn't want to be carted around rather than walk? I just can't lug her like I used to, especially since I am now fast approaching my third trimester.

Oh! That reminds me! We are having a BOY! We will be naming him Christian Lee Browning. Lee is after my father who just passed away in June, his name was Bruce Lee.
I count it an honor naming a child after him, and am grateful for the opportunity. Christian will be born just 10 months after my father's passing.

God is better than good!

The rest of us are doing well. We continue to find ourselves busy with day to day happenings. School, piano lessons, fellowshipping with friends and family, outings to the snow, etc etc.

I hope to post more pictures soon. Have a blessed DAY!!!

Thanks for the card! Love to see all of you smiling on my fridge. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I can not believe how much Ivanna and Max have grown. I still remember her little bird legs when she first got home.
