It's Thanksgiving!!!

Gosh I love this time of year and this year I have so much to be thankful for!One of the main things of course is our new baby...only 8 more weeks till I get to meet this little one. Gosh I can't wait! Then some other things are Colby's amazing job, my 2 wonderful kids, mine and Colby's marriage, our church family, our's and the kids health...the list could just go on and on. I've always loved Thanksgiving...when I was I think 13 my grama started making me my own stuffing-since i'm such a picky eater :o)-and my mom has continued the tradition even though i'm grown. It's a small thing but every year makes me feel super special...i'm spoiled I know!! haha!

This thanksgiving is going to be so much fun though because my Uncle John and his family is coming to town for a few days! He is the favorite person in my family so when he comes to town the world kinda stops and we all hang out and eat non-stop till he leaves! :o) He is the one the got us all playing poker a few years ago and so every time he comes to town we end up staying up till all hours of the night playing poker, but i'm hoping this year we'll be able to play Apples to Apples too! The kids are even excited about him coming, the whole family kinda hypes it up! haha!

Last night Lexi found one of my 3-D sono pics of the baby and was instantly attached to it, it was the cutest thing! She finally for the first time said "Logan" and she was kissing the picture and talking to it and kept showing it to both Colby and I and making sure we saw "Baby Logan". This poor baby will probably forever be called "Baby Logan"! haha! It was just so cute because up until now she hasn't really cared about the baby it's all been Konner, she's just kinda been oblivious, so it was really neat. Colby even got a video of it in his phone...we're such dorks!! Konner's still just as excited as ever about the baby and keeps asking to make sure that the baby will be here after Christmas! He's so excited!

I still can't believe I only have 8 weeks left! I'm honestly a bit nervous about having 3 kids running around here...although Logan won't be running for a while-thank goodness! I'm so excited though and can't believe it's almost time. I talked with our children's director today and am going to finish out December in the nursery and then take a few months off so i'm excited about that. I'm also a bit nervous because Colby is going to a photography conference 2 weeks before my due date! He'll only be gone fore about 3 days but since it's so close to my due date i'm going to be taking it very easy while he's gone. I so don't want him to be gone when I have the baby, i'm planning on doing this one all natural so he and I have been going over all the different relaxation stuff and getting all ready for it. I'm sure I can still do it if he's gone but I really don't want to have to!

Well I did finally get copies of our family pics that we got done a few weeks ago so i'll put up the main ones we got. They turned out sooo great! I love that Colby is a photographer, we are able to get family pics done every year plus we can go take pics of the kids whenever we want. They grow so stinkin fast! I couldn't believe how grown up Konner looks in these pics, I mean I know he's almost 4 but he's still supposed to look like a baby right?!? haha! Anyways here's the pics...

This week..

Gosh this has been a busy week! We had so much going on and i'm finally getting a chance to breath now that it's Saturday!

I had another doctor's apt this week, now that i'm 30 weeks pregnant i'm going every 2 weeks so that's tons of fun. Everything looks good for both me and the baby, my iron is a little low so i'm now taking iron pills but it's nothing really major. I am really ready for this little one to get here though, it's torture not knowing if we're having a boy or girl. I guess it was my bright idea though so I can't really complain. :o) It actually has been kinda cool and at least we can say we did it with one of the kids so that's kinda fun. Konner is ready for Logan to get here though, he's always talking about the baby coming and now he likes to sit and watch my stomach move. :o) It's so cute!

I'm so excited right now because it looks like it's supposed to snow this week! I absolutely love snow!! I love to stay in warm jammies all day and watch movies and drink hot chocolate on the first snow day of the's just one of my favorite things of the whole year! I pulled out my christmas music this week and the kids and I have been listening to it alot...poor Colby! He doesn't like it all that much but the kids and I so enjoy it so he puts up with it for us. :o)

We actually got our family pictures done this week too. Since Colby works at a photography studio we're able to get our family pics done every year plus we can actually send out christmas cards. The pics turned out so great!!! I'll have to post some once we get them but I was really excited that they turned out so good. I was a bit nervous becasue with me being 7 months preggo I didn't want to look huge in the pics but you actually can't even tell that i'm pregnant! They just came out so great!!!

Also Lexi's birthday was on Thursday, she is now officially 2 years old and talking like crazy. We had her party at Mr Gattis so that was so much fun. I'll put up some pics of it...everything went so well. She had to much fun opening her gifts and eating her cake but I think one of her favorite parts was when everyone sang "Happy birthday". She got the biggest smile on her face and absolutely loved it! Here's a few pics...
