There really hasn't been much to report. We went to see the Pain Management Nurse this week and continue to gather information about having a natural childbirth. I had a Sunday School Women's Dinner last night, so Jory spent the evening in the nursery. He's got the room taped so that he can start painting and he put up our pack n play. Ann found us the pack n play (in the box) at a consignment sale for maybe $15! It's wonderful!

I am getting very excited about Christmas. I am going to start on Christmas Cards this weekend. We are going to Ohio for a week over Christmas and I can't wait! It's been too long since I've seen the family and those precious nieces and nephews! I will also get my very first baby shower while I'm in Ohio!

We are flying to Ohio on the 20th (A day of traveling for my birthday!) and then we are driving a U-Haul back after Christmas! We are SO blessed that we can do that. We have a piano I need to get from my brother's house and we were renting the U-Haul for that. THEN, people started offering other goodies we could load up! My friend is giving us a crib (!) and a travel system stroller. My sister-in-law has the bassinet I was in as a baby AND Dad and Sheri have several furniture pieces that are going to be awfully handy. One of them is a TV. Ann - you will appreciate this - I am pretty sure that you can turn theirs off when you are done watching it!

The drive back will be a long one, especially at seven months pregnant, but I'm actually looking forward to it. I think Jory and I will enjoy the alone time. And Mindy has reminded me that she made the same drive (both ways!) when she was eight months pregnant and had two other kids in the car!

You definitely have some fun and very special things to look forward to! I'm going to work on Christmas cards this coming week, too. I look forward to hearing all about your special times with family and your road trip. There's truly something wonderful about just getting in the car with my hubby and enjoying each other's company along the way. Happy Thanksgiving!
