Gobble, Gobble

We have great Thanksgiving memories from this past week. Aside from me feeling like a stuffed turkey, we had lots of fun with friends and both sides of our families.

Family of 3...soon to be 4!!

The Davison family

Special K helping Abby finally get to eat the "big meal"

Abby & Abby enjoyed the day we made pinecone turkeys, cookies, and played pin the red dangly thingy on the turkey...

House for sale...know anyone??!!!

I know I don't have a wide reading audience, but my hubby has convinced me that word of mouth helps out a lot usually. So anyway, most people have no idea we are even moving! We found a place really close to Stephen's office on some decent amount of land so we're relocating after the 1st of the year. So our lovely house (I really do love it!) is up for sale by owner as of today. If you know of anyone moving to the area or looking for a charming old place convenient to downtown, send them our way! Thanks!

Battle of the colds...but so thankful

Our family has been battling the cold season head on already this week...just one of the perks of being married to a pediatrician right?!! Not much fun and we're all trying to get well before this baby boy is born. AND we want to feel better before both sides of our family join us for Thanksgiving in just a few days. We are so thankful our families get along well and enjoy getting together for the holidays. It sure makes it easy on us!!

Not to be ridiculously cliche, but we truly have so much to be thankful for...even in the midst of a fallen world, a yucky economy, and a swimming head. God is so gracious and merciful to us. We praise Him alone for the blessings in our lives.

Hope you all have a very safe and happy thanksgiving with loved ones!! I cannot wait to get my grub very small portions however thanks to lovely pregnancy reflux (TMI sorry). Hopefully we'll have baby boy arrival news soon after thanksgiving!!

Abby's 2nd haircut

Finally we went in for the big 2nd haircut. Abby did really well at Snip-its and I was thankful for our coupon. Bunny of course went with us to help ease any worries. The lady took about 2 inches off to get rid of split ends...and b/c I wasn't sure when we'd get back in for another cut since baby boy will take up some time.


Our nice lady

Bunny along for the fun!


The face of what's to come!

Here's our little boy's sweet face at 36 weeks!! We can't wait to meet him soon!

Good news for my hopes to attempt a VBAC today. Baby boy Jones is head down where he's supposed to be!! We were excited to see him on the ultrasound and got some neat 4D pics of his face. He's already looking chubbier than Abby. They estimated him to be about 5lbs 5ozs right now so we'll see how big he gets after all my thanksgiving eating!! They weren't able to further confirm the boy status because of such cramped quarters. But I'll go ahead and start washing his clothes soon and hope he's really a HE!! Can't believe he's due a month from today!

Black Mountain trip

A big thank you to Big Daddy and Special K for a wonderful long weekend at a beautiful Montreat home!!! We enjoyed being someplace so nice and enjoying all the fall colors. The whole family went to the Western Carolina Nature Center one morning...which was even better when we figured out we could get in free with our zoo passes! Abby loved following Blythe around and seeing the "big bad wolf" since her new favorite book is the "Three Little Pigs."

My new favorite picture of Stephen & Abby!!!


Since we were in Black Mountain at Montreat for Halloween Abby got to go trick-or-treating with her cousins in one of the dorms. She was a butterfly/fairy with her cousin Blythe. Cousin Grant was an adorable Indiana Jones. Stephen got talked into being Michael Phelps and his sister Jennifer does a great Sarah Palin impression. They were all really cute...and since Abby is allergic to milk I got to eat lots of her chocolate. Her new favorite food item from the weekend is marshmallows!!

Family pre-baby pics

We're getting asked this question a lot..."so will you all be done after this baby?" Well, we don't know the answer to that, but we did decide to have Special K (Stephen's mom) take some pics of us as a family with my belly this weekend in Black Mountain. And here are some of my faves.

Copied this idea from the Osborns...was it copyrighted?
