We just spent a great week away from life enjoying family and great food (a little more food than usual on my part). I feel especially thankful this year as I ponder becoming a mom - feelings I'm sure pale in comparison to what I'll feel when she arrives! K and I met my Mom for a "girls shopping spree" in Oklahoma City on Monday. We hoped to get most of our Christmas shopping done, but somehow ended up in Babies R Us and maternity stores more than anywhere else. . . By the way, K officially announced that she is expecting a baby May 29 - just ten weeks after us! We are thrilled to embark on this journey together - we know it will be crazy, but if you've known us for long, you already know that's how we tend to do things! We spent most of Thanksgiving day giggling at our cousins as they "wrestled" with their kids over food, naps, and playing on the stairs, the whole time thinking that this is very possibly one of our last holidays before we find ourselves in the same shoes. We also had quite the Black Friday experience, which involved the craziest Wal-Mart scene I've ever experienced in my life. We always promise each other that we will NEVER be this stupid again, but those deals always seem to get us out of bed in the middle of the night, pushing and shoving with the rest of the crazies to get the limited quantity item we've decided is just too good to pass up. Saturday was the highlight of my week - baby girl has been very active lately, and both my niece and R got to feel her move! It was very exciting to share something that only I've been able to feel so far. I'm starting to think that my kindergarteners are rubbing off on her - she always seems to be moving! I can't believe that we're already at twenty-three weeks, and I can't wait to see what the coming weeks bring. . .
