While my camera is still waiting to be mailed back from Utah I justed wanted to give a quick glimpse into the highlight of our holiday festivities: COUSINS!

If Matts' face looks a little splotchy in the Newell picture it's because he had to take 2 sets of cousin pictures in 2 days! The horror! To add insult to injury, my Dad ever so helpfully took my boys shirts to the dry cleaners and returned them beautifully pressed and STARCHED. You can only imagine how well it went when we tried to put my no-seam, organic cotton, loving boy in a white collared shirt that could literally stand up on it's own. Happily, Uncle David, an experienced jedi/GI Joe/ranger photographer, agreed to take Matts' cadet pictures if he smiled nicely for the cousin pics first.

...Or not. In what may be the most obvious post EVER we're thrilled to announce that we will be adding our last little Peterson BOY in May. So, all those who have been wondering about our sudden reclusiveness and my ever increasing plumpiness; don't worry, it's just an awesome combo of morning sickness, way too many doctor visits and other occupational hazards involved with growing a human.

We had our 20 week ultrasound yesterday and everthing looks "perfectly normal", "just what we like to see" and "all boy". We could not be more relieved or happier. Honestly, I'm reconciled and even somewhat excited to becoming the crazy boy house.

Happy New Year!
