I have been feeling pretty good the past 2 weeks. Jack and I both got over our colds for the most part, and started getting our energy back. We attended a marriage retreat with some of our church friends in San Antonio 2 weekends ago, and that was a wonderful getaway. Jack has been busy hunting every weekend (except that one) and so far has had luck with 1 deer. He is definitely trying to get all the hunting in before next year rolls around....I think he realizes it will not be as easy to leave this time next year. Oh, and I got a new car!! White Chevy Tahoe....my hubby did so good finding a great deal and working with Sandlin in Mt. Pleasant was easy as ever.
Thanksgiving was wonderful. I spent the first part of the week with family in East Texas and really enjoyed seeing friends and family who I had not seen in a while. I was able to see my precious nephew Will and visit with my Dad and Denise. By the way Will calls me "Aunt Sissy" and it has to be the cutest thing I have heard yet! I also got to spend more time with my step sister and she bought me my first baby gift....a diaper bag!! I am so excited to get it in the mail. I know you are thinking "really, you are excited about a bag," but those who know me know I love bags and picking this out was just fun. I decided on a backpack style, as I figured with babies in arms it will be difficult to be weighed down by a bag. This one has major pockets and is not gender specific, it was hard not to go with the pinks!! Here it is!! http://www.shopjujube.com/Product.aspx?l=00010001000000000000&p=JJB01239 Thank you Misty!!
At the end of my East Texas trip I also got to visit with some of my girlfriends and just hang out. I got some great mommy tips and ideas for the nursery. I also came home from this trip with a day bed and lots of great baby to toddler toys. My Uncle Kemp and Aunt Dana blessed me with some things they had in storage. I am so grateful!! Thank you!!
Thanksgiving was yummy and the food stayed down...success! I had a great time with family and enjoyed watching the Cowboys and the A&M game. Here the picture Jack took before I stuffed my face with Thanksgiving lunch.
And, while the game was not in the Aggies favor, we at least gave t.u a little run for their money. I was a happy Aggie.
I ventured out later in the afternoon on black Friday and started my registries at Babies 'r Us and Wal-Mart. Let me tell you...this was quite the experience. I was at Babies 'r Us for nearly 2 hours just making sure I didn't over scan or under scan...tried to think of needing 3 of everything is quite overwhelming. It was fun though and it is a good start.
We head back to the Dr. this coming Wednesday, and HOPEFULLY find out if we have boys, girls or a mixture. I can't wait! I will post when we get new pictures. Thank you for all the love, prayers and support.
