Thanksgiving in Florida with The Trossens

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving visiting The Trossen Family in Florida last week. Andy is a Marine and they have been stationed in Okinawa, Japan for the last 3 years, so we were thrilled to welcome them back to the states with Thanksgiving dinner and the Macy's Day Parade! It was wonderful to catch up with Andy, Crystalin and see their kiddos Madelin and Maddox, who have grown up so much since the last time we saw them. Plus, the perks of being in Florida, it was sunny and warm!

Brothers from different mothers, reunited! Chris and Andy grew up together in Indiana.

Watching a Christmas tree lighting at the Ritz Carlton at Amelia Island. Christmas lights, beach, hot cocoa and fireworks, does it get any better than this?

While we were in the area, we got to see Jay Ziegler, a longtime friend of the Duvall family! It was great to see him and catch up!

Is "Baby G" a He or a She? What's it Gonna Bee?

We had our 20 week ultra sound last week and were able to find out the gender of "Baby G!" Since we couldn't be with our families to share the big news, we ordered cupcakes and sent a note: "Is Baby G a He or She? What's it gonna bee? Take a bite to see!"

My parents came to Denver for a week to visit, and to be here the day we found out the gender of Baby G. Apparently, we didn't take any photos while the were here, but I did take a couple 19 week baby bump photos!
