The Countdown Begins

In case you are wondering I HAVE been counting down the weeks until I have this baby.  I have a little over 9 weeks left.  I have had several people tell me that being pregnant in your 30s is different from being pregnant in your 20s.  Boy, were they ever right.  Being pregnant with my boys seemed easy. This baby is a WHOLE different story, though. My body hurts, its hurts to walk, my feet, ankles, and fingers keep swelling, I have little energy and feel like I have to lie down most afternoons, I just feel huge and uncomfortable--yup, I'll be glad when I get her here and I can hold her in my arms and not have to be pregnant any more.  Jacob has been doing more things around the house to help me and he has been very understanding and supportive through all of this.

When I felt up to it over the long holiday weekend we tried to make some fun food and also hit some sales at Hobby Lobby.  Jacob did a lot of hanging and we just enjoyed being together as a family.  It was nice.

One night we splurged and made Juicy Lucys with cheddar bacon fries.  Not the healthiest of meals, but its fun to splurge from time to time.

The "All Star" hat rack we purchased for half price at Hobby Lobby.  We have been looking for a hat rack for the boys' room for a while now and this one was perfect.  It was even more exciting that it was 50% off!

The boys' backpacks are always on the floor and in the way.  I found this double hook for half price and bought it to hang the boys' back packs on.  We hung it in the hallway at the boys' height so they could hang their back packs and get them for school.

Another day we made taco salad and made mini tortilla bowls by using an upside down muffin pan.

Finished products.  Alex loved these!
