Sugar and Spice....

Well I don't have access to a scanner today so there are no pics yet BUT......We had our ultrasound yesterday and we are halfway done growing our little girl- Gracelyn Rae Hosford. She is very healthy, has all her parts and pieces, and is VERY active. She was twisting, turning, and playing with her toes the whole time we watched her. We loved the experience. We are just absolutely thrilled to be parents and can't wait to meet little Gracie. We have a video of the utrasound and so we had the entire Hosford and Carlson families over for a dinner party last night so they could see their grandndaughter, neice, and cousin. It was such a special time and it was just the way we imagined. God Bless our little Gracie as she continues to grow.

20 weeks!

Well I definitely stole the pic from Tom and Laurens blog but it's the only one we have right now. Baby Hos is growing RAPIDLY!!!! I am feeling stellar and loving this new phase of pregnancy. The first few months were kind of slow and sluggish but this part is much more fun and I have tons more energy. I can feel baby move quite a bit now, mostly just kind of floaty feeling but sometimes definite somersaults and thuds. FUN, can't wait for Dan to get to feel it. One week till our ultrasound and hopefully we can find out of this is a Gracelyn Rae or a Bryant Thomas. Still doing things that fall under the pregnancy retardation category- stop by and I'll tell you all about this. Loves to all!!!

Buffalo, NY

So we were in Buffalo, NY visiting the Incorvaia family. What a wonderful vacation we had, no agendas or plans just fun and visiting non stop. So this pic is from Thursday at Niagra, Falls. Gorgeous rainbow- a promise form God- taken of the American falls from the Canadian side.
Our fabulous forever friends Nick and Alyssa. What a blast we had with them. They are so special to us. Our friendship is so real and natural. Everything just seems to gel. Love them bunches.
So this is a pic taken of the whole falls area, including the horseshoe falls in the back. Get a load of that mist. I took this photo from the Rainbow bridge that connects the US and Canada in Niagra. B-E-A-Utiful!!!!! We had a fantastic time and the drive wasn't bad.

Aubs was back in town!

So Aubs was back in town, what a treat. We spent two separate afternoons together and it was lovely as usual. What a dear friend she is, and so much fun to hang out with. It was lovely to see her and share such a special time in my life with her. She is so in touch with these things and it was great to have her with me. I wish she could stay longer, or come home more often. I don't know, I suppose it is also nice to have some connection through a loved one to the inside world of Asia. Whatever, Love you Aubs and Happy 25th Birthday on the 1st. Sorry we didn't celebrate together. Love you lots!!
