Welcome to Baby Rueber's Blog

Welcome to our blog, we are hoping that this blog will help keep our family and friends who live far away a chance to stay in touch and watch our family grow from 2 to 3!

It is so great to FINALLY share our news with family and friends! It was fun for a while to have this great secret, but we are so happy to share our news! We are currently 10 1/2 weeks pregnant and due June 29th, 2010.
10 1/2 weeks pregnant.

We got to share our wonderful news with our families on Thanksgiving. We hosted Thanksgiving again this year for two reasons; 1.David had to work and it is easier for him to wake up and have dinner at home rather than driving and 2. because we wanted to share the news with everyone at our house.

We wanted to tell our parents before we told our siblings, so we gave our parents a "gift for helping cook and prepare Thanksgiving dinner." We gave both grandma's-to-be bibs that say "Grandma loves me".
We had both of the grandma's-to-be open the gifts at the same time (since they were the same). Maureen (Dave's mom) was confused at first, she thought we got her bibs for Aftin (our niece) and was thinking why would they buy bibs for Laura she doesn't have any grandchildren? Then went OOOHHHHH!!!!! My mom said, "Really!" and my dad said "Your kidding!" To say the least, everyone is very, very excited!

Onto Black Friday....last year the girls (My mom, Maureen, Amy, Kathy and myself) started a tradition, we go boutique shopping in the cities. It was a very fun day looking at Christmas decorations and NOT fighting the crowds. We made stops in Stillwater and St. Paul MN. We did manage to fill the back of Maureen's car with bags. Sorry no pictures, we forgot!

My mom found a gift for the daddy-to-be at one of the boutiques. It is an owner's manual for baby's! It is totally written in "guy language"! Too funny.

To cap off the weekend, we went Christmas tree hunting. Now most of you know that our "normal" tree hunting consists of trekking through the Nicolet National forest looking for the perfect Charlie Brown tree. With all of our lives getting busier and busier, we decided to try something new and maybe make a new tradition.

This year we cut trees on the West side of the state at Pleasant Valley Tree Farm. It was a fun filled morning!
We started with a wagon ride out to the trees. "Well trained" dogs are Paisley and Izzie got to come along.

We found the perfect tree, here it is!
We took our time putting the tree up and decorating it. As I mentioned before, I am very tired so I can only do so much at one time!

Notice Paisley...this is her new favorite spot to lay, on the tree skirt! She is not interested in the water, the tree or the ornaments...Thank goodness! She can lay there all she wants, it is kinda cute!
