thanksgiving with family

Luke & Jess came to visit us the whole week. It was GREAT having them here. Lily loved them.
As usual, I forgot my camera multiple times while we were out doing fun stuff, but here are a few pics from the week.

Lily & Luke doing some raking.

We had 14 family members come for Thanksgiving. . . me stuffing the bird.

Lily was the taste-tester.

secrets from Lily

I am almost done with my first trimester; currently 11+ weeks. Our official due date is JUNE 6, but we'll see if this baby comes 2 weeks early like Lily did. Maybe we'll have a MAY baby.

So far this pregnancy has been very similar to my pregnancy with Lily. Very nauseous & sick for the first 3-4 weeks, then extremely tired, then indigestion, back to tired & sick. We also had a 9 week ultrasound back when my parents were here. SO FUN to have Mom go with me. The baby only measured 7 weeks (exact same thing happened with Lily). All that to say...we'll see if this is a May or June baby. We are so thankful for God blessing our family of four!

Well, Lily just woke up from nap & is back there chanting "baby." The secrets out!

new boots

This weekend we got out all the Christmas decorations & decorated the house.

My two favorite reindeer. Notice the fire in the fireplace.
We also had Christmas music playing all day. . .but we've been doing that for months.

notre dame football

Jake & I went on a little weekend getaway Saturday to Sunday. Notre Dame was playing Wake Forest (which never happens). Jake got us tickets. The game was in Wake Forest (3 1/2 hours away). We dropped off Lily at Ed & Teena's Saturday morning. We then headed to Wake Forest. It was an 8 pm game & temps were in the lower 40's. Night games are SO fun & chilly. We came back Sunday by lunch. Here are a few pics:

The above picture reminds me of the below picture.
This same weekend (first weekend in November) 4 years ago (2007) Jake came to visit me, in MN, for the first time. See it HERE. . . . and the rest is history.
