I am off for Thanksgiving break! So far it's been a wonderful time off. Clint and I went on a much needed date last night. Thanks Sara and Terry! We ate out and went to see The Blindside. Excellent movie!

This morning Clint went hunting and Jack and a stayed in our pajamas. This afternoon I made a dress for Sydney and I have fabric bought for two more. This will be a wonderful week!

Nursery is Coming Along

Well....the shopping for the nursery is coming along. Not a single thing has actually been done in the room.

First of all, today I bought these cute outfits. Don't you just LOVE that giraffe onesie?

Here's a closeup of the sheeting for the crib bedding (which I ordered today by the way). I just love the outdoorsy, girly theme with the owls and birds and trees. Don't worry, we are painting the room a very light pink to make sure it looks feminine!

I was at Target today, and would you know that they are now carrying a girls' bedding that has Owls and Birds and Trees? I was ecstatic because they had all sorts of accessories that will go with her bedding!! I found this wall decal at Pottery Barn that I fell in love with, but of course it was outrageously expensive. At Target they had this set for only $15!! It includes 78 pieces!

I also bought this lamp that goes perfectly with the theme! I can't wait to have this lamp on her changing table for all those middle of the night feedings and changings!

I'm so excited to see everything put will probably be the end of January before it's all done. I'll update as I go!

For now, I'm pumped about an entire week off to hang out with family, cook, sew, and NOT TEACH TEENAGERS!

Ready for Delivery!

I have been so busy making pumpkin rolls and a few sticks of ribbon cake over the past couple of weeks! Thanks to all of you for your orders. Tonight I'll be packaging them up in Thanksgiving or Christmas fabric and tomorrow I'll deliver!

Family Pictures

I've been trying all week to get the pictures the Nguyens took last weekend to upload. Emily suggested that I change their size and Poof! It worked! Aren't the pictures WONDERFUL?? They really did a good job capturing our little (growing) family!

I also went for my 22 week appointment this week. Everything looks great! I'm growing and gaining Sydney is very active! I will go back at 26 weeks to do the dreaded glucose test and get another ultrasound. They found placenta previa on the last ultrasound, and if it hasn't moved they'll be doing a C-Section. NNOOOO!! Oh well, I'm so glad we live in a time when we can have ultrasounds and do C-Sections to keep babies healthy!

Character Breakfast

This morning we went to The Very Merry Market Character Breakfast. They had breakfast for the kids and then all the characters came out and visited with everyone and we could take pictures. Jack didn't care too much about the princesses, but when Mickey Mouse came out, his world was turned upside down. It was so precious. He's also starting to figure out this thing about Santa Claus!

Jack's face when Mickey Mouse came out.

Mickey was so sweet to let Jack follow him around and hug him multiple times throughout the breakfast.

Such a great Santa Claus!

This afternoon we had family pictures taken by the fabulous Nguyen family. We might actually get out Christmas cards for the first time this year! Don't hold your breath....I'm not good at that kind of thing. I can't wait to see the pictures!

This afternoon I went back to the market and got a little Christmas shopping done! I also bought Sydney Kaye some frilly monogrammed bloomers. I can't wait to see her little diapered bottom in these, can you?

Last, but not least, her bedding!! I made a final decision! I found this bedding a while back and Clint and I fell in love with it, but it was a little out of our price range. However, this week I got 50 (yes, count them, FIFTY) pumpkin roll orders, and they haven't stopped coming in! So, I decided to buy the dream bedding with the money I make from pumpkin rolls. Now, what color should I paint the room?? I'm thinking buttercream yellow.

Now, I need to get off the computer and start making those 50 pumpkin rolls!
