It's a.... BOY

Casey and I went to the doctor today for our 20 week sonogram. We were so excited to learn the gender of our precious second child. It took no time at all for us to see that baby Armstrong #2 is a BOY! We were shocked. I have felt, looked, acted, and gained the same.... everything has been the exact same in this pregnancy as it was when I was pregnant with our daughter Avery. I just knew that meant it had to be another girl. Everyone told me I was carrying "high" and it must too be a girl.... wrong. Guess you really don't know until you see the baby. We are excited to have one of each and can't wait to see him in person!
Baby Boy Armstrong 20 weeks!
Clearly, it's a boy!

Christmas Parade

Tonight there was a Christmas parade in Borger. It was so incredibly cold outside, but we thought it wouldn't last too long and Avery was so excited at the thought of going. We waited in the car with the heater on until it started passing by us.
Warm and cozy in the car with Dad.
Brrr.. my jacket barely zips now, but I was determined to fit in it for the freezing temperatures.
Avery and her friend Brynne had matching toboggans - cuties.
Picking up the candy.
Avery even got lucky and caught a bear thrown by someone that looked like Elvis???
Poor baby was sooo cold her face was turning red. At this point, she had to get back in the car and watch the rest from there.
Santa and his reindeer. Merry Christmas. What fun - even in the cold weather.

Horses and Oreos

So two of my daughter's absolute favorite things as a 2 1/2 year old are horses and oreos. She ALWAYS wants to go to the barn and ride "Little Buddy" or help dad with anything horse related. We have been trying to take her riding when the weather permits and the wind isn't blowing us over. She automatically grabs her boots and hat while heading out the door.

I believe that Casey's love for oreos and milk has been passed down to Avery. Anytime she sees him get them out of the pantry she is right there ready for him to share. She eats them just like dad, dipping and all, except insists that he open hers before she dips so that she can lick all the icing off!
