Christmas Flash Mob

This? Coolest. Thing. Ever. This gave me goosebumps. Just once in my lifetime, I would like to be a witness to a flashmob.

Nellie? Meet Christmas.

Clearly, she is thrilled.

Turkey Day

Today was Nellie’s very 1st Thanksgiving “on the outside”. This time last year I was massive with baby. I remember being so excited to eat my brains out, only to find that I was so pregnant there just wasn’t that much room in my belly!

This year, our 10 month old decided to boycott a morning nap. She toughed it out, though she wasn’t really interested in sampling any Thanksgiving cuisine.

Our tree is up, I baked some Christmas cookies (they’re not the best thing ever. I think I need more practice) and we’re about to settle in for our annual viewing of the Best Christmas Movie Ever: National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation! Pics will be coming of our holiday decor soon, so stay tuned. To everyone to celebrates, Happy Thanksgiving and to my friends in other countries, it’s almost Friday. Yay!


I think that, perhaps, my festive holiday tablecloth is a bit too large for my table. What say you, readers?

I normally don’t even dream of putting up Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving. However, we went to Wal-Mart tonight and picked up a few. My husband ripped into the tablecloth, and I gasped at him.
“It’s not Thanksgiving yet!”
He just looked at me. I looked at him. We were both thinking the same thing.
Do we dare put up Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving?

Clearly, we dared. I now have a few Christmas knickknacks merrily on display and there will be more to come. I am ridiculously excited for the coming holiday season and have been insanely eager to decorate.. Something I’m not usually overly zealous about.

What about you? Do you decorate before Thanksgiving? Are your lights and tree already up?

4th of July

This 4th of July, we’re going to a family cookout this Sunday at my sister in law’s house. Everyone will know that I’m pregnant, and maybe everyone will be talking about it and asking how I’m feeling, talking about the baby, etc. I will enjoy the attention, and the food.

This time next year, I’ll have a 5 month old to bring to family cookouts for the 4th of July.
