The days after....

Hi Ya'll! I can hardly believe that Thanksgiving 08 is behind us...we are now 21 weeks pregnant and are 90% sure that we are having a GIRL!!!! I am beyond excited, I know that I would be excited either way but....I grew up in a large family with 7 sisters so...girls well...it just seems natural to me to have a girl first. Now if this little growing one turns out to be a boy...well I have always wanted a lil' boy too, so either way I am a winner!

Thanksgiving this year was mostly quiet, Mr. Wonderfuls' parents came down and we all headed over to a friends house to celebrate the day with her and her extended family and freinds...YAY...I did not have to cook...I did make a casserole dish but that was it! And my in-laws came bearing gifts of Thanksgiving foods so the fridge is full and we are enjoying "leftovers" here in Paradise for the next week...and for that I am very grateful as I am dealing with a nasty head cold and would rather not cook anything if possible.

So....Christmas is here....at least it is starting to make it's appearance here in Paradise. New trimmings are waiting for the door wreath, a small tree has been purchased for my favorite ornaments and I am waiting on Mr. Wonderful to come home from a hunting morning so he can help me get the boxes out so I can get started. We are not putting the big tree up this year...at least I don't think we are....Mr. Wonderful seemed kinda sad that I was not planning on putting it up so..I'll let him decide...we just have to move furniture around and a lot of it I usually do and I can't this year...so rather than hassle with it I thought we would skip it...I guess we will see.

I hope you and yours had a wonderful Thanksgiving, I know we did...there is so very much to be grateful for...my heart gets overwhelmed with it all. If you drop by leave a note!
