Christmas Morning for Jared....

Jared is heading to the shooting range with the guys today, and he couldn't be any more excited. He loves to try to teach me which guns are for which purpose - you can see he had all the bullets lined up to explain to me which gun they go with. It probably has been two years since last time he went to the range, so he is really happy to go!

31 Weeks

Here I am at 31 weeks - could that belly get any bigger? I am starting to feel like we are ready for Anthony to come, though hopefully he won't be too early. But a little early I'd be okay with. Thanks for the new sweater, Mom - it's nice to have something that covers my belly completely!

I tried to convince my logical husband that we should adopt a rescue puppy....Lynda sent us an email about a dog who needed a home and I'm such a sap for that kind of stuff. Thank God that Jared is thinking in his right mind all the time (because this third trimester I most certainly am not!). Just what we need is a new puppy (it was a German Shepherd so would be about 100 lbs full grown), a new baby, and Roma. Thank goodness Jared said no because looking back I see how that was a ridiculous idea....;)

I've also been in the office all day today (something I rarely have to do). Just do not see how pregnant women could possibly work in an office all day at this point. And I still have two more months to go. Today I am very thankful that I get to work from home most days. I am exhausted!

Colby and I started sewing bibs for Anthony & Lucas this weekend. We had a lot of fun figuring out what we are doing - it's been at least five years since last time I used a sewing machine! We were a little slow to start, so have only finished 4 out of 10 bibs so far.....

Nursery....in progress

We have done more work on the nursery. Hopefully close to finished.....Jared is going to hang the letters that say "Anthony" above the crib tomorrow. Hopefully Anthony likes Bernese Mountain Dogs as much as Jared and I do! We are sure that Roma and Anthony will be inseparable.

Kaitlyn & Caleb

Our niece and nephew came to visit this week - we love to spend time with them (and Jody!)!

Pike Place Market

We went to the market this week while Jody was in town and had a fun filled day of shopping, coffee and lunch!
