On another note, my heart is so full because my parents were able to make the trip down to celebrate Thanksgiving with us! We were so excited they could make it work and spend 3 full days together! They arrived Wednesday night and left Sunday morning. We had such a fun time soaking in the last time of hanging out as the 4 of us because next time I see them we will have a baby (crazy!!). Thank goodness my mom was here to help make the Thanksgiving meal....there's nothing like her cooking. We had a FEAST for 4 people (but that was intentional so we could eat leftovers all weekend and freeze extra food)...we had turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, corn, veggies, rolls with cinnamon butter, mom's homemade applesauce, and of course pumpkin pie. We also dived out into some of the black Friday shopping- it's a tradition that my mom and I have done together for as long as I can remember and the past few years we have brought along my dad and seth- which makes it even that much more fun. This year was great- because all the stores opened at midnight or before, when we went in the morning there was practically no lines and no crowds to work through- it was great! We just have fun seeing if we can find good deals and spending the time together! We also set up our Christmas decorations and took a hospital tour with them. I was so happy they could come down and so thankful we had those few days to spend together with them, they were priceless. Here's some pics:
Now begins the wait until Gracie Mae makes her appearance. I have a feeling these last few weeks are going to FLY by and before we know it our lives will be forever changed in so many ways!
This is about a week ago!
