Here's where things started to get a little crazy.
We thought we'd try out an old family tradition. It's something we like to call The Lingle Pile. We all lay on top of each other, from oldest to youngest. Keep in mind, this began when Garrett, the youngest, was probably around four or so. So it's definitely gotten harder over the years. Poor Steve. And obviously, I was not able to participate as usual, due to my delicate condition, so I just stuck my head in between Brandon and Ryan. :o)
Then I had the idea to try a Lingle Totem Pole! This was a little easier.
I think we all had a great time. We chose to do our Christmas gift exchange also, since we all won't be together for Christmas.
The plans for our trip were supposed to be that Chris drove home Sunday and I stayed in Florida with his parents until Thursday. Unfortunately, due to some unusual, and pretty painful back issues I was having on Sunday morning, we decided that I should be home with Chris and near my doctor. So we're back home now, and we're thankful that we could spend time with our families.
Now it's time to decorate for Christmas!!
Grandma's helping Laura Anne down the slide.
Yes, this was spinning while she was sitting. :o)
Crawling through the tube!
After meeting up with the guys for dinner we went to visit Chris' sister, Nellie, and her family. Laura Anne thought it would be fun to push cousin Camila around the house in a doll stroller. It caught on; Barbara pushed Laura Anne for a little bit, too.
At the Castleberry reunion, the youngest girls play a game together.
Here's Sheri with Joshua and Steven, looking so cute in their matching shirts!
Laura Anne spent some time playing with Grammy. Mutton is in the background.
And what's Thanksgiving without Charlie Brown? Laura Anne has fallen in love with Snoopy. She giggles at everything he does!

This is the instructor, Miss Geri.
Trying out the balance beam
"The Pit" is so fun! But it's really hard to get out of!
Jumping on the trampoline is one of her favorites!

The baby was awake so we could see it moving its arms and legs, even tilting its head a little. The funny thing is that first the arms and legs were down in front of the baby's body. Then all of a sudden the arms were by the head, and while we were looking at the baby's head we saw a foot come up above the shoulders! This baby is flexible!
This first picture is a view of the baby's front. From right to left, you can see the brain, eye sockets, tummy and leg! The blobs on either side of the chin are the hands.
This is a view of the top of the baby's head! The big white blob in front is a hand! We could see all the fingers including the thumb! It was awesome!
One of my favorites!! This is a picture of the bottom of the feet!! Aren't they adorable?!
Another picture of the feet. On the left is the bottom of one foot. On the right is the side view of the other foot--a little bitty ankle!
Oops, this picture is backwards. The baby's head was on the right. Anyway, this is the beautiful profile. We can already tell that this baby's nose is different than Laura Anne's!
And in case anyone's wondering, the sex of the baby IS still a secret!!

She's saying "weee!" because the daddy bunny is swinging the little bunny high over his head.
Okay this was adorable. You may be able to see that in the book the daddy is kissing the baby on the head. Right before I snapped the picture, Laura Anne bent down and kissed the book! It was so sweet! A few minutes after I took the picture she came and gave me a kiss too!
