Best Christmas EVER!

Just wanted to share this with you....  I wrote it two days ago....


"It is 4:56 a.m. on Christmas morning...  I heard Kohen crying over the monitor so I got up to check on him.   I walked quietly through the living room where Scott and Kristin were sleeping (and where Santa had definitely come to visit). I opened Kohen's door and could see through his window that we left the Christmas lights on all night.  His head was too close to the railing of his bed so I scooted him back and he fell right back to sleep.  I walked back to my bathroom to pee.  I grabbed a pregnancy test.  It was the second test in a box of two.  I took the first test two days ago.  It said "NO".  After I took the test I carried it and placed it on my nightstand.  I crawled back into bed. My feet were freezing.  I put my freezing feet on Jason's legs.  I checked the pregnancy test and it showed a little clock.  I checked the monitor and saw my sweet baby boy sleeping.  I was glad I turned up his thermostat one degree after leaving his room.  My feet were warm by now.  It crossed my mind, "what if I really am pregnant?".  I layed there for a little while longer.  I grabbed my phone and pressed the button so that it would light up.  I put my phone over the pregnancy test.  It said "YES".  I covered my mouth with my hand.  I absolutely could not believe it.  I laid there not knowing what to do.  I wanted to wake Jason up SO bad and tell him.  I wanted to run through the whole house yelling it!  My whole family is at my house for Christmas!  How can I keep it a secret?  So, what did I do?....  I grabbed my lap top and am now in Jason's office blogging! LOL!  I have a baby in my belly!!!! HA!  Has it hit me yet????  I don't know....!  How am I going to tell everyone?  I think I might put the pregnancy test in Jason's stocking....  I'm SO excited to tell him!  Oh my goodness.... How do I tell my sweet 26 month old that his mommy is going to have a brother or sister????  I just can't believe it!
Ok... I HAVE to try and get a little more sleep before all the kiddos wake up and want to see what Santa brought them...  This is the BEST Christmas ever!"
