LONG overdue update

I started writing this post almost two weeks ago and just never found the time to finish it – so I guess I might as well just start over!

I cannot believe it is already December and that 2009 is quickly coming to an end. The past few weeks have been very busy for us and have flown by. Since I last updated, we have flown out to California for our first baby shower, had our last Thanksgiving without baby, celebrated “Colker Christmas” and even found some time in between to finish our Christmas shopping!

To start from the beginning…

Back on Friday, November 13 – Brian, myself and my sister made the flight home to California for our first baby shower. After enjoying a delicious burger, fries and milkshake at In’n’Out, we got to my Dad’s house late that night to discover that my dad had flown out my Aunt from Ohio as a surprise for the shower – and what a great surprise it was! The last time we saw my Aunt was when Brian and I got married and it was so good to be able to spend time with her and catch up on life.

Saturday morning was spent preparing for the shower and watching the University of Texas game (go Longhorns!). The shower kicked off around 1pm and I am not actually sure how long it lasted... After some yummy food, the girls spent our time catching up, playing games and opening gifts – while the boys hung out watching football, playing pool, drinking beer/scotch and smoking cigars!

Below are just a few pictures from the day…

After opening all the presents that everyone brought for Baby McDermott – all I can say is how thankful I am for our family and friends and how LOVED our little one already is! Here is a shot of all the goodies that we brought home:


After recovering from a great weekend, we turned our focus to preparing for the holidays. We enjoyed a lovely Turkey Day, spent eating a TON of food and watching a bunch of Football – including the Texas game (and boy – was that a good game)!

While I was doing some cooking in the kitchen that day, Brian found it funny that I was “barefoot, pregnant and in the kitchen” – thus, he had to take the following picture:

I have more updates to share on the baby and my belly – but since this post is getting ridiculously long, I will save that for another post later this week!
