2011 Christmas

2011 Hochgraber family Christmas

Thanks to everyone for making it so special!

Audrey had to try out her new roller blades and why was 40 degrees that afternoon!

Baby's Update We are @ 34 Weeks, 4 to go!

Our goal is to make it to 1/25/12.

Baby A - 4lbs, 3 oz

Baby B - 4lbs, 4 oz

8 and 1/2 lbs together.....and I still have 4 weeks.

Can you believe Audrey was only 4lbs 15 oz!

Baby A cooperated, Baby B was facing the wrong direction.

New cookie recipe FUN night

Tonight Audrey and I tried a new Healthy Banana Cookie recipe.

It's a "healthy" cookie but it tastes more like a granola bar!

I love to cook, but I'm not a huge baker but I'm trying.

What you need...

3 ripe bananas, 2 cups of oatmeal, 1/2 cup of raisins, 1/2 cup of crasins, 1/2 cup of chocolate chips, 2 oz of walnuts, 1/3 cup of applesauce, a 1 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract.

Peel & Smash Bananas

Mix in the rest of the ingredients.

Spoon onto cookie sheet and pat them down a little - they don't spread at all.. AND WAIT!!!

Because they are so nutritious and yummy, Audrey and I had they for a snack before bed!

Baby Update!

We are at 32 weeks! Goal is 36 weeks - January 11, 2012!

Baby A - 3lbs 10oz (25th percentile)

Baby B - 3lbs 6oz (15th percentile)

It's starting to get crazy with weekly doctor appointments, two ultrasounds a week, resting more and just preparing ourselves for their arrival!

Pictures are tough because they are crammed in there, but it's better than nothing!

Getting into the Holiday Spirit!

This weekend, G & G Hoch came down for a weekend of Christmas activities.

Friday night we started off by going to the Holmes Theatre for a Christmas Concert. Audrey was on her first date with Thomas! I wish I could have taken a picture, Josh was holding Audrey's left hand and Thomas was holding Audrey's right hand. After the show they walked up the aisle holding hands - super cute!

Saturday we baked and baked and baked! We tried a new recipe - as you can see by the picture, the dough was a little sticky! Audrey loves to help me in the kitchen - even if it's helping cut up veggies for dinner.

Grandma and Audrey created a gingerbread house, it will probably be our center piece until Christmas! She loves looking at it while we eat.
