Christmas Cookie Overdose

21 weeks - I have insomnia but I blame the cookies. We are hosting a cookie tasting this week and I baked 10 dozen cookies so far. Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter Kisses and Berry Squares. That is all I smell around our place - cookies. Potter even put up a tree as a surprise for me. It was 80* outside but Christmas in our tiny living room - stockings, music the whole deal. We haven’t had a tree in years because we’re always somewhere else but it was a nice surprise to see all of my ornaments I got as a kid hanging there. Now if I can only keep from getting more as gifts, we should be all set. I guess having a kid will change our traditions or lack there of. His family are all getting together at his brother's house in Cincinnati for the holiday’s this year. Hopefully, Brooklyn and Zuko (dog) will get along. We are excited to see everyone, play in some snow, and relax...[lol - Brooklyn's ugly x-mas sweater]

The Announcement

This week we are telling work and announcing a “new member to the show” on Friday. One two people in the office know and they have promised not to say anything, however, they both said they are horrific secret keepers. That is not what you want to hear! Each day we thought it would be fun to give out clues on the air about who our new show member was. Some of the listeners got it right away and others thought we were re-hiring old co-workers. Finally, we announced I was expecting by having our intern read an Oscar envelope of the name. She read it an said, "Really? You are? You don't look it." She got a hug for that and if I could give her extra credit on her internship, I would have. 
 I also pulled a fast one on Potter. He didn't get to attend many doctors appointments so he hadn't heard the heartbeat yet. I recorded it during my last visit and sprung it on him. His eyes got huge and he said, "what is that...is...is that our baby?" [No, I broke into some other woman's appointment and said, "Can you hush for a sec? I need to record your child's heartbeat."] Needless to say, he was shocked and teary eyed. Everyone was so cool about it, our radio family was more excited than my biological family!
