Yes, it does seem that Christmas comes faster every year. This year I am getting prepared early. Could be the fact that I am due in December! I would like to thank Star 93.3 for helping me keep focused. I love that they have started playing Christmas Music already. They started October 27th ish. Their reasoning is important. You can read it on their site.

Gatlinburg Adventures

Once again life as a Hickman is an adventure. (Names are hidden to keep embarrassment to a minimum)

1. Picnic Lunch - cooler set on top a bee hive near poison Sumac.
2. Papaw Hickman - face plant on the deck of the office for the chalet.
3. Hickman Family (minus Nana) Falling off the Mountain - okay not literally, but most members got freaked out while Papaw Hickman was turning the van around in the driveway. So much so that Nana Hickman jumped out of the car and Daddy Hickman screamed like a woman. All which caused Hickman Boy to react.
4. Hickman Boy Chair Plant - Boy Hickman was rocking his chair at the Hard Rock Cafe, fell to the side and crashed on the floor.
5. Hickman Boy's Death Scream - Driving up the mountain Boy Hickman's scream: "We're gonna DIE!"
6. Mommy Hickman's Question - "Who ate all my food? We know it wasn't me?!?" After eating a whole meal - something that has not been done in the recent past.

Baby Update

We are fortunate enough to have had another ultrasound. It was confirmed that we are having a little girl. After all the measurements she is weighing in at 3 lbs 7 oz. They didn't give us a length, but we were told that her size puts me at 30 weeks, not just 28.

This excited Keith because then if she is 2 weeks "late" it pretty much guarantees that she will be born in 2009. I got excited because it puts us at full term the beginning of December, not the end. Regardless of when she comes we know that she will come. We are just praying for an early December birthday over a late one.

Here is our first picture where you can actually tell what things are.

Kaitlyn Alexis we can't wait to meet you and hold you in our arms.
