Halfway point, Christmas, pictures

Okay so I wanted to post this last week, but I never got the chance. BFF was in from Denver and it was a crazy busy week. It was a great time with great friends though. I was sad to see them go! B/c once they left....then it was just the family. Ahhh....I love my family to death, but sometimes you need them in small doses this time of year, ya know?!?

Last Sunday (the 16th) was 20 weeks for me. So now I am 21 weeks...only 19 to go! YAY!!! I am so darn excited right now. Superjayman took this picture of me while she was here and I was 20 weeks and a few days. I hate taking pictures of myself right now. I know I should, thus why I do it, but I feel like I look so FAT! I can't wait to take pictures of me shrinking again!!! Speaking of...I've decided I am not cutting my hair again (I will keep it trimmed up--I'm not gross!) but I won't cut it short again until I hit 159. That is my goal right now so once I get there, the hair will get chopped and donated! YAY!!!! I feel this little one move every day and he/she is a late nighter and an early riser. It's quite comical to me anyway!

Christmas was a blast and we had so much fun. All of my family was here on the 22nd for Christmas. We had a great time and lots of good food--too much, but I'll get to that later! There were games and movies watched. I spent all of Saturday night on the couch with an ice pack on my back b/c I was so sore from being up all day. Tile floors and cooking all day and being pregnant were not a good combination for me this year! But that's fine too. Here's a shot of my sister and her dog and my dog. Her dog is Tank--a miniature long haired daschund. He weighs about 8# and is 16 weeks old. He's freaking adorable!

On Christmas Eve, my dad and step mom (CC) came to visit and we baked and baked. We made monkey bread, cookies--3 different batches of sugar cookies, and muddy buddy mix/puppy chow. OMG! By that night, I couldn't even walk into my kitchen b/c the smell of all the sugar made me want to vomit. Oh it was gross!!!! But we had a blast. CC took this picture of us in front of our tree so this was a first and I just love it! DS is standing on a chair--just in case you were wondering! :)

Christmas morning was a BLAST! This was the first year DS really had any idea what was going on and he made it so much fun. Here’s a shot of him with all of his presents. He has LOVED everything Santa brought. Santa was pretty good to me this year too. I got a new necklace and a new Bluetooth for my cell phone (I washed my last one—OOPS!) and some pjs. Dh did pretty good but he always takes the easy way out with jewelry, which is fine with me! My brother got me a Coach purse. That’s a first for me so I was pleasantly surprised. How did everyone else do??

I am SOOOO glad Christmas is over though. I have ate so much CRAP this last week it’s not even funny. And I can feel it too. Yuck! I made dinner last night and it was so nice to eat healthy. I think all the junk is gone now, so it should be easy to get back on track with healthier than what I’ve been eating. ;) We even took our tree down Christmas night! And I had the rest of the stuff down on Wednesday.

DH got some really good news on Saturday. He bid on a project for the state of Washington (he has 2 other people he is working with). He got a call on Saturday that they are in the final 5. He has to make it through one more step and if they do that, then he has to go out there to demo it on February 8th. And if he wins this contract, we are talking mega bucks! The money doesn’t even matter to me (it’s a nice bonus, don’t get me wrong) but this would be his dream realized. He would have to hire a staff and really grow his company. I am praying he makes it that far. I really am. He wants this one bad too, I can tell. But you know what this means? I had to forego my trip to Cancun. We had decided to go to Cabo San Lucas instead and now that won’t happen. If my doctor says it’s okay, we might go at the end of February, but I will be 30 weeks, so I’ll wait to ask her when I go back on the 9th. I’m not sure I WANT to go being that pregnant, but we’ll see. It may be our only shot! I told him I would be happy with a weekend in Chicago (we’re in Indy) so who knows. He promised me we would do something, so we’ll see what happens.

We don’t have any major plans for New Year’s. DH just informed me tonight that he has to work on New Year’s Eve so there went any plans we had for the day. DS is going to CC’s house Friday night (we’ll meet her then and I’ll meet her again on Monday morning) so DH and I can go to the Colts game on Sunday night. We are so pumped! Then on NYE, we are going to hang out with our neighbor’s and let all the kids play. It should be a good time.

I think I’ve rambled long enough tonight. I hope you all had a WONDERFUL Christmas and I wish you many blessings and happiness in the new year!

Sounds like a wonderful Christmas. DS is so cute with his toys and PJs on, what a great memory.
WOW! Time is flying by, half way there!!! Yippee!!!
That stinks you have to put off your trip, but great for DH on his hard work and achievments! Hopefully you will get the weekend in Chicago, that would be a fun get away!
Have fun at the game and a great and safe New Year. I can't wait for all the happy blogs to come in 2008!!

Wow I feel so caught up, which I like. SOunds like you had a fabulous Christmas with family and presents. Beautiful necklace! Your DS is just adorable, I love the picture of him and his loot! You look great and I'm guessing another boy from that picture, but what do I know? Puppies are adorable and make me want to hug on them (I love little dogs!). All in all it sounds like you've had a great couple weeks and have fun plans for the rest of the year. Hope you get to go on a trip soon!
If I don't "see" you again before Monday, have a fantastic New Year!!!
