You may remember that I kicked off my third trimester on Thanksgiving. I am sorry to report that even though I was eating for two, I was unable to make it to thirds. I did have a particularly hearty plate of seconds so I’d call that a victory.
We have a lot to be thankful for this year. We took time to jot down a few of these things throughout the month in our Thanks Jar. Here’s a sampling of some of the random things that made the cut. Oh, and if you’re wondering who Emily is, I’ll let you figure that out by process of elimination. ;-)
For IKEA – Jessica
Garfield’s nail trimmers – Eric
For our happy sunlight-filled home – Jessica
For being woken up at night by coyotes howling in the desert – Eric
I am glad that Garfield keeps me company in the kitchen – Jessica
I am thankful that Emily and Jessica are healthy and doing so well – Eric
For feeling Emily kick! – Jessica
For lazy Friday nights at home – Eric
I am thankful that I was able to go for the “big” walk – Jessica
Jessica is going for longer walks with me – Eric
For Danny – Jessica (regarding our nephew)
That our house is getting cleaner and more organized – Eric
For Eric’s hard work around the house – Jessica
Janelle and Wes are getting married (soon!) – Eric (regarding his sister and future brother-in-law who will be wed on 12.12.12!)
I’m so glad Emily is going to have such a fun dad! – Jessica
While it probably won’t snow here this winter, it’s going to be a flurry of activity around these parts as we take our prenatal classes, decorate the nursery, stock up on baby stuff, celebrate the holidays, and try to get as much done around the house before our little Valentine arrives.
Yes, it’s official, we’re nesting.
But don’t worry, there’s bound to be time for some holiday baking somewhere in there. I am eating for two, after all.
This week, however, I’m taking a break from food blogging and will be giving you a sneak peek into our desert abode (you know, other than our kitchen) with two posts featuring let’s-get-this-done-before-the-baby-gets-here projects that we crossed off our list over the long weekend.
me Eric a hammer.
