I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas

Hello! It's been a few months since I've posted. There hasn't been much going on other than my random everyday life, but we have some new developments on the surrogacy that I thought I'd share with you. We have a date!! Yay!

We are using the ED whose eggs were originally scheduled to appear back in August. IM is ecstatic and I'm tickled that she gets to use the ED she is happy with. I'm getting back on meds and start Lupron again on the 30th. Incidentally, this is also the day that we will be arriving in Santa Fe to spend some time with my IPs!! I am thrilled about this trip!! DH and all the kids will be coming along and it's a 16 hour road trip. This should provide some interesting tales as our little ones are 6, 4 and 10 mths. We will be making plenty of stops to stretch legs, use the potty, take pictures, eat snacks and change diapers along the way. There should be snow while we are there too! If you know anything about the Texas Gulf Coast region then I don't have to tell you that it doesn't snow here...much. It has "snowed" twice since our oldest has been born and she seems to think this is due to her fervent pleas to Santa. Snow, to the kids, is 3 inches of the white stuff. A "snow man" is the little guy you make out of all the "snow" you scraped off the car (the neighbor's car, the mailbox, the driveway, etc.)

(Props to my friend, Jenny, for use of her snowmen pic) This year, we'll get to see real snow. I plan to make a snow angel. It's been at least 10 years since I've last done so. :) The kids are supposed to go sledding. By "the kids," I mean Albert. I might go too, depending on the size of the hill. :)

After we get back, on the 3rd, Al and Rachel go back to school (he works for a school district) and the rest of us go back to our reguarly scheduled programs. Then, we start to prepare for our Jan. 31-Feb. 3rdish transfer!!! This would make us due around the middle of October. A little pumpkin baby!! :)

So, that is what is new in our corner of the world. I will update more as we get closer. For now, I wish you all a Merry, Merry Christmas and I hope that 2011 brings you great joy. I'll be sure to take pictures of us frolicking in the snow like idiots while all of the New Mexicans stare at us.
