Picture taken on October 15, the day the doctor confirmed that I am pregnant.
Our first ultrasound. Baby measured 6 weeks 5 days (instead of 8 weeks 3 days so they moved my due date).
Almost 11 weeks. A friend of mine told me once, how she bought a fabric tape measurer for her pregnancy and would measure & write the weeks on it. Then you can use it for each pregnancy to compare. I loved that idea & have remembered it for years. So far my waist has grown 1 1/2 inches since we first found out.
We will be measuring Jake's progress as well. (He is purposefully sticking out his stomach here.)

Our 18 pound turkey, seasoned & ready to go in the oven.
Our Thanksgiving feast:
"Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good,
for His steadfast love endures forever."

I forgot to take a picture of the stromboli when it came out of the oven. It looked good & tasted even better.

I also wanted to show off my cute new sign. You can change what kind of coffee is in the mug as well as the date. Love it! Thanks Dave & Jenny.

Our friends Adam & Anna welcomed their first child into the world on Sunday evening. A sweet baby girl, Kinley Grace - 8 pounds 1 ounce and 21 inches long. I forgot to take a close up of Kinley, but here is Jake "holding" her - don't ask.

Today I made a no sew (board mounted) window treatment for the grey bedroom. I have these tea towels from Anthropologie that I LOVE. You may recognize them from here. I used my trusty staple gun & another one of our extra pickets, from the fence, for the board.

Our house was pressure-washed in July, but the North side of the house did not come too clean. There was still mildew & mold on the siding. Saturday morning we sprayed the side of the house with water & bleach. We ended up using a deck brush as well & TAaa-DaaAaa - it's WHITE . . .not grey.

The lettered balls were very picked over.
I ended up getting our anniversary & an F.

Jake got up & started edging the sidewalk on the north side of our house. I ran to the store to get some grocery's and then started painting this tile-top table. It was a pastel green. I taped it off & started painting.
Done. I painted it the blue we had in our main bathroom at the condo (Martha Stewart - Summer Cottage). Love it!
