Catching up...

The Saturday before Thanksgiving we had Brittany's Ladies Shower and it turned out beautifully.  My mom did another amazing job on making her a cake.  I don't have many pictures from the shower, because sadly my camera battery died.  I think from that one shower Brittany and Taylor have all the kitchen supplies they will need.

We had Thanksgiving at my mom's house with about 30 other friends and family.  It was a lot of fun to spend time together and eat really good food. 

You might think Trever accidentally closed his eyes right when we took the picture...but nope...it's on purpose.  

Then we headed to my dad's house for Thanksgiving up in the mountains.  It was really nice to get away and to be able to wear a scarf and a jacket.  We even were able to watch the small town parade welcoming Santa to town. 




My dad thinks it would be fun to have a float one year with all the grandkids on it...He is the kind of grandpa I bet he will do that one day.  



On Saturday we took the traditional weekly belly picture.  I turned 19 weeks and only have a few more days to wait until we find out if we are having a boy or girl.   It would be an understatement to say I am excited!!!

I can't believe that in just 2 more days I will be half way through this pregnancy.  I am really enjoying being pregnant and I can't believe how fast the time is going.  The first few weeks seemed to drag on, but now I can't believe I am almost 20 weeks along.  I absolutely love feeling the baby move all the time.  I am really trying to treasure each moment.

You look terrific! I always loved the babies moving also. I still have dreams about it. I have some important mothering information to give you privately, but the e-mail I sent you bounced it back. Please send me your e-mail.

hey hayley! no, i still have not had any luck with maternity jeans. my stretch jeans have been great, so, i think that's what i'm going to do. look for some low-rise stretch jeans that are a size or 2 bigger than what i normally wear and just buy those. in the meantime, i have maternity work pants and a few pair of trustee pre-pregnancy stretch jeans i've been wearing...but they are definitely getting tighter! and i too recommend the bella band. it really helps during that transitional period. well, i hope you have better luck than i've had!
