Happy Thanksgiving to all of my American readers!!! I hope you enjoy a wonderful day with those you love. Remember all the things you have to be thankful for. We will be having dinner at my mom's house with the family. I am looking forward to my mom's delicious stuffing and turkey. And I'm very glad I don't have to make anything but the rolls lol. No worrying about how much potatoes to mash or how much atlantic salt to add, or getting a turkey done in time. My mom makes such a yummy Thanksgiving dinner too. Soooo good!

I am thankful for:
*My wonderful husband, Nate. He is such a great guy who helps me with the kids and the house and loves me no matter what. Love you honey!
*My 3 little boys- Jason, Jacob, and Nathan. It is such a joy to watch them grow up and see their personalities. They are all so different but I love them all for who they are.
*The 2 little boys growing in my belly, Isaac and Caleb. I feel so incredibly blessed to be the mommy of these little boys and am so excited to meet them in a few months.
*My parents and siblings. They helped shape me into the woman I am today. I love spending time with all of them, laughing and sharing stories and just being together.
*Family, extended and non-related. I have been blessed with some great inlaws and extended family on both sides. Also, all those who aren't technically related but have still become family.
*Friends. I cherish each of my friendships and am thankful for those near and far who I call friend.

Thank you, Father in Heaven, for the many blessings I have been given!

28 Week Belly

OK, I promised a picture. Here I am at 28 weeks pregnant. I am almost as big as I usually am at full term lol. And obviously that shirt is getting a tad on the small side. Today it feels like these boys are trying to claw their way out through the top of my belly, it is so sore. It'll be so interesting to see how much bigger I get. And since I'm gaining more weight than normal I hope it comes off as easy as my others have so I don't have to worry about reading diet pill reviews to take care of it. Now it's time for me to go to bed and rest my sore belly, it's been a long day.

Digital vs print

I keep telling myself that I really need to organize all my digital photos and get some printed. We have no photo albums or anything. We still haven't even printed out any of our engagement or wedding photos from 7.5 years ago! I want to get some photo albums made (not scrapbooks, I am not a scrapbooker!) but with the thousands and thousands of digital photos piled up for years, it's a daunting task. And then I have to find the best photo printing for less sites. I know a lot of sites offer free prints for new customers so I intend to take advantage of that whenever I do finally get around to printing some.

Party time

Tonight we had my youngest son's birthday party. Tomorrow he will turn 2! I can't believe how fast the last 2 years have gone. He is such an adorable little guy and I'm so thankful for him. He's still not talking a lot, but he's starting to say a few more things. We didn't buy him much for his birthday because he doesn't really need anything. He doesn't need toys or clothes or mbt shoes. I finally picked out a toy phone and a few easy puzzles. He got some fun gifts from family too and the party was fun. I may or may not post some pictures from the party. I make no promises lol.

Gonna pop!

So I am feeling so huge! Not sure how I can grow any more over the next few months lol. These little boys are so active too. I'm glad that we've decided to visit the inlaws just after Thanksgiving this year because there is no way we are going up at Christmas. Not only does the dr not want me traveling at that stage (so no point in looking up flight deals to get away from this freezing weather) but I can't imagine how uncomfortable it would be to sit in the car for 5 hrs at that point. I'm sure it'll be pretty uncomfortable in 2 weeks. Some of my maternity shirts are already getting too short, and I think all of my non-maternity shirts have been retired for a bit by now. And pants, ugh. I have a few pair of maternity jeans and they are all uncomfortable. Thank heavens for my 2 pair of maternity yoga pants. They are my favorite pants ever!

I will be taking a new belly pic tomorrow (if I remember lol) and will get that posted.
