We will be 36 weeks prego on Friday. It seems so close and so far at the same time. I had my baby shower a few Saturdays ago and man, Ryder is SPOILED!!! He got so much stuff. I think we are set on diapers for a while! He got so many cute clothes! We took a tour of Banner Gateway, the hospital we will be delivering at. They just showed us around to the different rooms. It was very helpful, but I still am a little nervous. Chase was able to get all the wrong turns out of his system so when it's go time he'll know exactly where to be:) Now time to pack the hospital bag. I'm thinking that will be fun for me because just another thing that means it's coming closer!
Chase is busy, busy, busy!!! He finished school and had a great semester! Got the highest GPA he's gotten... like ever! I like to think it's because he is working harder for his family now that we have a baby on the way. He took a long vacation from Dominos so he could do training for MPS Transportation. From the way he talks he is really liking what he does. He seems to enjoy it. I think it will be perfect for our family.
This time of year seems so busy, but we love it! We've been getting our Christmas shopping done and can't wait to see everyone's reaction. We hope they like them:) This week especially we have a lot going on in the evenings.
Tonight (Tuesday) Brittany & Emma (Bryan's Family) are coming in town for Christmas so we are going out to hang out with them.
Then Wednesday we are going to see the Temple lights. One of my favorite things to do around Christmas. We'll see how it goes this year, I've been having a hard time walking too long with these pregnant feet of mine. All this shopping is wearing me down.
Thursday night we are having our somewhat new tradition of like 3 years and celebrating Christmas with the Walkers (my mom's sister's family) We'll be having Mexican food and playing a few games!
Then Friday is Christmas Eve so we'll be fun, some of us are spending the night so it'll be just like when we were kids!
Christmas day is almost here! I'm trying to think of someway to have the kids be reminded of why we celebrate Christmas, but not quite sure waht to do. Thought about having them act out the Nativity, but not sure how easy that would be. I guess we'll see what I can come up with.
Then Sunday we will be at the Gibson's! Cannot wait! We are bringing rolls for dinner and I want to do home made ones, we'll see... I've never really done it before.
This last Saturday I went to a Cookie exchange. It was my first time doing one and it was a lot of fun! There were so many good cookies! I will definitely do things differently next time. First off, I have not quite figured out the purpose of seran wrap. 2nd off cookies aren't as fun as other treats! and don't volunteer to bring someone else's cookies:)
We hope you all have a very Merry Christmas with your family!!!
