In honor of the snow...

I changed up the blog for a little bit! I cannot believe how much snow we've gotten and it just keeps coming down! Maybe some more pictures to come if I don't freeze trying to take them...

And so begins the 9th month...

Our last Dr. appointment (Friday) showed us that Paisley would rather be standing up than resting on her head... She's in breech position and that doesn't make the doc real comfortable. (What about me?!)

The crazy news is that if she hasn't flipped by this Friday, they want us to seriously consider having her manually turned the week after Christmas. (Doctor manipulation of my baby belly!) When - if! - she turns after all that pushing, pulling, and kneading of her comfort zone, they'll want to induce me to begin labor before she changes her mind. If all of this happens...we'll have our little girl in 2 weeks rather than 4!

Anyway, it suddenly feels like lots to get ready for! But on the other hand, I've heard story after story of babies flipping on their own right when they're supposed to! So we'll see how it goes. If she stays breech and we wait for her to flip but she doesn't, then she'll soon be too big to flip and it'll mean a c-section, which I'd really rather avoid.

So it's not all that big of a deal, and God's will will be done, but if you think about it, could you send up a prayer that Paisley turns on her own so I can go into labor naturally and at the proper time? Thank you!

We Need A Little Christmas!

It's incredible to me that we're already 4 days into December! So much to do, so much to think about, so much going on...!

We spent a wonderful Thanksgiving with my parents, 3 of the brothers, and my uncle, aunt, and cousin at my parents' house. What a spread it was! Everyone had a hand in making the festive meal. We had more rolls than we could eat, and so many desserts, they lasted for days!

We have so much to be thankful for this year! I am so grateful to have Andrew home, for one thing. And now we have a baby on the way and a new life outside the Army. Lots of uncertainties, and that's the only certain thing sometimes... But it's such a wonderful life!

We're already moving into the Christmas season. The tree's up and the cinnamon candles are burning. Our Netflix queue is full of Christmas movies and we've been practicing Christmas songs for our church ensemble for weeks, now.

Our first performance was last Sunday as a kick-off to the holiday series at church, A Charlie Brown Christmas. And every Sunday through December, our ensemble will be caroling in the season, both on the stage, and after church during the fellowship/mingling time. "We" are my dad, Andrew, me, Jenny, and Tyler & Shelley Cook. It's been lots of fun so far... It even "snowed" at church when we sang White Christmas!

Ooh...I haven't made an advent chain, yet...
