I did some Christmas decorating this morning while Brett was at work.......I strung up the Christmas balls instead of a wreath; made a "Wordle" word art with words that remind me of Christmas, and printed off the "jingle" banner for free off the internet. :)

This year the tree is in the dining room. :)

Yesterday I waited in a forrrrrrever long line to get some flannel for Baby T. This is a green check, and I got plain brown too. I'm going to make our baby some blankets when I find out the gender. (sorry for the awful lighting in this pic.....we are buying a new camera for Christmas this year!)

Wednesday evening Brett and I celebrated Thanksgiving with a nice dinner at was so much fun! :) We had stuffed mushrooms, bacon-wrapped asparagus, pearl onions, sparkling white grape juice, and I had a fancy sausage from Richard's and Brett had steak. Plus pie for dessert!

Hey Sweet Baby! :)

We had our first ultrasound today and this little one was gettin' with it and moving it's arms and legs all around! :) (I think it was saying "Hi mom and dad! Look at me!")
We also got to hear the heartbeat......everyone told me this would make me "tear up", but nope, not here! I was (and still am) so excited (Brett too!) I just couldn't stop smiling! The dr. was extremely nice and friendly and very bubbly. She measured our little one and said things look great! :) :) :)

We meet the doctor tomorrow and get to see a pic of our little one (slightly more than 2 inches long now) :) :) :) :) :)
p.s.-I read our baby can do somersaults, stretches, and forward rolls now. Plus, their toenail and fingernail beds are forming.
Seriously. So. Cool.

Weekend: Stayed the night at the old house......woke up to breakfast from Brett :). The pics aren't great of the house, but the men were out putting all our shingles on today! I was trying to stay out of their way, so I snapped these pics real quick. The stairs are finished enough to walk all the way up to the 2nd floor on...but again, had to stay out of the worker's way. more pictures tomorrow!

Sweet times with my sweet husband.

"Hey Baby!" :)
This is a picture of me last night on the left (after eating, might I add), and first thing this morning (before eating anything) In the last week, I have really started to show. I am now 10 weeks along :).

House+progress+excitement=one word, HOORAY :)

It's "huntin' season" ya'll :) This is Brett, ready for his "camp out" with Daddy and Seth last night at the old house on the farm. The guys spent the night, cooked breakfast, and went hunting this morning. No luck with the deer, but sounds like they had a good time. And this is evidently what my daddy looks like at 4 a.m., picture courtest of Brett :)

Brett burned the pile from the bulldozer on our property today....and he and I worked on the fence behind our house. No worries-I didn't overdo it :). I was the trimmer gal :). Good workout!
This week I made Cooking Light's version of Loaded Baked Potato Soup-yum! :) I recommend going to to find some yummy, healthy recipes!
Another favorite of mine is for browsing, and finding yummy recipes as well, but not always healthy. This site is the most gorgeous and inspiring cooking site I've ever seen! It has rows and rows of food pictures (lots of baking!) and all you do is click on the picture and it takes you to the recipe (usually found on a blog). It's fun if you have time to look!
