Christmas Week!

Hi friends. I made it through finals and have maintained my 3.5 gpa, so I'm happy! I've done a few things on my list... like I've spent a significant time in my sweats and have watched way too much tv. I also decided to clean some bathrooms... and I'm not sure how Caleb's been showering in his shower... gross! Well, not now, so we're all good. I've finished my shopping, and have done most of my wrapping. Cole and I baked sugar cookies (yup, I bought a rolling pin!) and we've eaten most of them. I've spent time with friends, my little brother, and by myself. It's been nice. Oh, and Cole has his Ikea tent set up in the front room, cause there's a tree set up, so it's sorta like being in the woods! :)

I'm now really looking forward to Christmas with my little guy! He had just 3 things on his list, so Santa is being totally obliging! I know he's going to love it.

Also, update on my pregnancy, it's going good. There's really nothing to report. We are going to find out the gender in January and will tell as soon as we know! I also need to snap a belly picture-- I can't believe tomorrow I'll be 15 weeks. I'm not looking so much pregnant, but rather like I've gained 10 pounds in my gut since Thanksgiving-- it's really cute.

OK, well, that's the update here. Hope you're enjoying your Christmas week and I'm looking forward to spying pictures of Christmas on fb.

Merry Christmas!

Finals, Finals, Finals

I really should have my nose in a math book or be editing my final essay.... but I'm not. Try as I might, inspiration isn't coming to me, so I thought I would share all the fun things I plan on doing over the Christmas break!
-Visit with friends
-Take Cole swimming at the YMCA
-Purchase a rolling pin and then make sugar cookies (who doesn't own a rolling pin? Seriously, how can I be in my 8th year of marriage and not own one!)
-Read meaningless books
-Watch silly TV and movies
-Go to the movies with a friend (Tara?!)
-Meal Plan and then make real dinners (which is possible now that I'm past the "food is so nasty" stage of pregnancy)
-Actually clean my house-- I'm talking basic stuff, but stuff I've put off far too long, and now I'll have a bunch more time to do it!
-Finish my Christmas Shopping as well as the few hand crafted gifts I've been making for MONTHS.
-Go on adventure walks with Cole
-Go to the library for story hour (again, for Cole!)
-Sleep in and have at least 1 PJ day

Ok, so that's the list I've decided on currently, but I'm sure there's time to add more. I just have to study for a few hours tonight, take a final tomorrow, finish my essay and then take another final on Sunday/Monday.... I can do it. Easy peasy. I guess the best motivation is realizing that life will be so much more fun in a few short days.

I've talked myself into studying, so night all. See you next week!

I was thinking that it's been a long time since I posted pictures... so here are a few.
