Dad’s b-day dinner, Thanksgiving, Christmas tree and 28 weeks

On Tuesday we braved the weather to head to Twin Falls to spend the night with my family. All the kids made it out to the house for my Dad’s birthday dinner-he’s 51! It was so much fun to be able to be there with the entire family and spend the night hanging out. Happy {late} birthday dad-you are the best dad any kid could hope for!
I think Carson licked all 51 candles
Love you dad!
 Wednesday we made it to Raft River where we spent Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving really is one of the greatest holidays. You get to eat, relax and be with family. It was Terry and I, Nicole and Jordan and Cheryl and Kenny. I think we forgot how many people were actually coming because there was a TON of food! Cheryl is probably the nicest mother-in-law ever. She asked Jordan and me what we usually have at our family’s Thanksgiving and I said pretzel salad and Jordan said pies. There were 3 pies and pretzel salad!! Definitely a great Thanksgiving!
Our feast

Thursday night I met my parents and Jill in Burley where they picked me up so I could go Black Friday shopping with the girls. That sounds really ridiculous typing it out but wait it gets better. Laura, Jill and I were at Wal-Mart at 11:45 shopped till about 1 came home and tried to sleep till 4:30 when the marathon shopping would begin. Waking up twice was rough! We shopped from 4:30 till around 11! This is probably our craziest tradition-but half price socks?? You’d be crazy not to get up! Ha at least that’s what we tell ourselves. My parents and Carson brought me back to Burley around 1 and I loaded up my treasures and set off for Raft River. Thanks so much for driving me!! I probably won’t do this again some traditions just have to change-every other year of Black Friday will probably we better for our budget anyway!

We cut down our first Christmas tree!! Our little Charlie browner tree is just that-but we love it. I’ve never cut down our own tree before and it made for a super fun day. We loaded up with Jordan and Nicole and set off for the mountains. We couldn’t make it up to where there were trees right off the road so we took to climbing the mountain. I think I would have been dying even if I wasn’t pregnant! The boys cut the trees down and then Nicole and I dragged them down the mountain. Feel pretty good about getting my workout in for the month :)

{love} this boy!

Thanks for letting us tag along!

yep, this is how far I could zip my snow pants up. I should have worn suspenders!

1st Christmas tree!

28 (almost 29) weeks down and maybe less than 10 to go!! I can’t believe how fast time has flown by! It’s hard to imagine that in just a few months our little man will be here. I think you can finally notice right off the bat that I’m pregnant, either from my big belly or chip munk cheeks. Terry has to tell me to smile really big in pics or else my cheeks swallow my whole face! At church 3 or 4 people commented on my growing belly-thankfully in nice ways. Someone asked to touch my tummy and I said no that’s ok thanks. I felt bad but I’m still not up for someone I barely know rubbing my stomach…it’s just weird! Even someone I know-Ryan you better keep your hands off next time! My feet and my back hurt more and I still eat like a little piggy but other than that things are great! I have to do my sugar test thing this week so we’ll see how that goes. Oh and I had a job interview today…ha at 6 ½ months pregnant!! But I got a second interview-woo hoo!!
28 weeks

  2. Your holiday weekend sounded fun, and cutting your own trees too! I'm glad your doing well for the most part, put your feet up often, eat all you want, and i'm sorry about the aches that come with pregnancy; just tell that little nephew of mine to behave and be nice to his mummy. We can't wait to see you all in a couple of weeks! P.S. your a very cute prego girl!!
