Needless to say we had a great time palying in our pool today:)

My Golfer

Austin has been golfing with his high school golf team. He has really been enjoying the break from hockey and getting to know some of his schoolmates better.

Yesterday his team golfed in Regionals. Austin did very well coming in third out of every golfer there!!!! He shot a 5 over par - a 77. The team came in 2nd overall and now moves on to States.

Mike and I are actually going to get to see him golf in States! We are going to Michigan next week for a week and next weekend is when States are. We can't wait to see how he and his team does.

Go Gabriel Richard Fighting Irish! Go Austin!!!

ps - Here is a picture of him golfing for his team earlier this season from the local paper.

Baby Watson - 16 weeks

I had an ultrasound on Wednesday and it was awesome. Baby Watson was kicking, trying to suck its hand, and trying to grab its toes. I just love watching all the activity.

The doctor said the baby is perfect and that all the blood work they have gotten back so far has been amazing!!!

I am having slight problems though. My placenta is curled up a little bit on the edge and a tiny portion of my membranes has not fused. The doctor checked my cervix and uterus by ultrasound also and those are just fine. Because of these slight issues he is going to be proactive and do another ultrasound on June 30th. The doctor said that these two things are really of no concern since it is such a small portion of both that are affected and the baby along with my blood work so far is perfect.

I am thankful that he is being cautious though and I look forward to meeting this little one in November.

Kolbe's First Holy Communion

Ok - So I am super slow! Kolbe made his First Holy Communion on May 3rd. He did such a nice job. The only disappointment was hat we could not take any pictures of them receiving because the previous year was so bad. That is a minor inconvenience.

We had a nice celebration afterwards with our dear friends and my mother-in-law. It was small but very nice. We had lots of finger foods, jambalaya. and a beautiful cake made by my friends Kim. The kids played and swam.

I am very happy for Kolbe. He is now receiving Jesus and all of His Graces. Kolbe is now excited to go to altar server training:) He sure is a go getter:) We are very proud of him and pray he always grows closer to Jesus and his Sacred Heart.

Happy 6th Birthday Nate

Today is Nate's 6th Birthday. He is such a sweet and gentle little guy. He is my cuddler and loves to suck his thumb and rub Maggie's hair:)

Today we just laid low and I made ice cream cone cup cakes for dessert. I felt bad for him because he got sick to his stomach this evening and went to bed very early. Hopefully he will be better in the morning.

We love you Nate and can't wait to watch you grow and change in the coming year.

We're Expecting Baby #9!!

We are proud to announce Watson Baby #9 due to arrive November 8th, 2008. I am now 13 weeks along and we are all very happy and excited. It is truly a blessing and we wanted to share it with you all. Also we would like to ask you all to keep baby and me in your prayers.

Just to answer everyone ahead of time - we are NOT finding out if we are having a boy or a girl this time - we are going to wait.

Here is an ultrasound pic of our little one at 11 weeks.
