Our Thanksgiving...

WOW! I can't believe Thanksgiving is already over, the leftovers are pretty much gone, and December starts tomorrow!

We stayed home this year since my due date is so close and John's parents drove down on Thursday to join us. I did most of my grocery shopping Tuesday night then picked up some last minute items Wednesday night at another store. I got the kids Chick-fil-a for dinner Wed. because I was going to start preparing some turkey day food that night and didn't want to add to my work load :)

Wednesday night I was able to get the dressing put together as well as the sweet potato casserole. I had to make a Target run that night so my cooking didn't get any further.

Thursday morning I got up and was on my feet for pretty much the rest of the day. I made the cranberry fruit conserve (real cranberries people...not that jellied stuff from a can), cupcakes (to celebrate my mother in law's birthday (the kids got to decorate them), apple crisp, and the turkey went into the oven. When he was done I got the stuffing and sweet potatoes and green beans (with caramelized onions and sliced almonds) done and I think we ended up eating at about 5:30.

John's parents stayed at a local hotel and took Abby with them Thursday night so she could spend the night with them. John and I let Max stay up until 9 to watch the Charlie Brown Thanksgiving and Mayflower specials that were on t.v. I also spent some time sitting with my feet up and the heating pad on my back (got a pulled muscle in my back from all the late night episodes with Lucy over the past couple of months).

Friday, John's parents and John took Max and Abby to the Fire Museum and Lucy and I stayed home. I had thought about doing some Christmas shopping on Friday but I didn't want to take Lucy with me since she hadn't slept too well the night before. I didn't think a toy store on Black Friday would be the place to test her staying power! She went down for a nap after lunch and everyone else came back but I was not feeling very comfortable by that point so I didn't make it out. Friday evening we had an early dinner and then we piled into the car with our warm clothes and jackets and a bag full of graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate and headed to the Festival of Lights at one of the county parks. It took us a while to get in the gate but once we did the kids were loving the Christmas Light displays! We finally got to a parking lot that wasn't full and were able to park and get out and walk around. They have these fire pits by the gift shops and you can roast marshmallows. So we made our s'mores then headed back to the car to drive through the rest of the park.

It was Max's turn to go to the hotel with Grandma and Grandpa so he went with them in their car and John, the girls, and I headed home. That night was a good sleeping night for Lucy (she didn't get in the bed until after 9) but unfortunately the same could not be said for me. I was awakened at midnight with a horrible case of heartburn. I usually head down to the couch when it hits so I can prop myself up. By the time it started going away at 2:30, the contractions started. They were coming at about 10-12, then 8-10 minutes apart. I tried walking, laying down, drinking water, and sitting up to see fi they would go away and they still kept coming.
Skip to 6am and John comes down the stairs with Lucy and I tell him what is going on...he only freaks out a little :) (and he wondered why I didn't wake him up to tell him what was going on). I went up to take a shower to see if that would help then laid back down on the couch. By this time John realizes that I have been up since midnight and sends me back up to bed to get some sleep. I slept until about 9:30 and the contractions had settled down. I still had them throughout the day but not as bad as they were during the night and not as close together either.

John's parents and Max came back to the house at about 10am. Then they took us to lunch for shrimp before they headed back home. I took a good nap after I put Lucy down and was able to avoid watching Clemson temporarily forget how to play football against the Gamecocks! Yesterday I was finally able to get to Target and pick up a couple of things but it was basically a hang out/chill out day. My parents made it home safely last night from Indiana :)

So now it is Monday and the kids went back to school and I have had sporadic contractions throughout the day. Nothing quite as intense as the ones Saturday morning but hopefully when I go for my checkup on Wednesday I'll find out that this weekend was productive in more ways than one :)

So now we are on the countdown to Christmas. I have just a couple of gifts left to get and then get them all wrapped before our biggest gift of all arrives...anyday now :)

Safe Travels...

My mom and dad are heading to southern Indiana today to spend Thanksgiving in their hometowns. My mom is having her 40th High School reunion on Saturday so they will be able to enjoy that as well as visiting with their brothers and sisters and my Granny (my mom's mom). My dad will also be able to spend some time with his oldest sister who is currently battling lung cancer.

They will be traveling a new route this time due to the rock slide on I-40. I hope the drive goes smoothly for them on the way up and on the way back! Enjoy your trip and visit mom and will be missed around here :( I will pray for you to have a safe trip and that Baby Girl doesn't decide to show up early!

Also, safe travels to my in-laws as they travel down to our house tomorrow to spend Thanksgiving with us. Drive safe and we are looking forward to seeing you :)

Anyone else traveling during this week...Be Safe and Have a Wonderful Thanksgiving!!!!!

Baby Update 36 1/2 weeks...

Baby Girl and I had another checkup this morning. John's working different hours this week so he was finally able to go to an appointment with us and meet my doctor.

Baby's heartrate is great and my BP was 120/78.

The doctor checked me again...I've been having some pretty good contractions since this past Friday...apparently they are doing something. I am 1cm dilated!

I have been telling Peanut that I don't want her to come before Dec. 5th. I'm going to root for Dec. 11th because my doctor is on call that weekend :)

Happy Birthday!

Hope you have a wonderful day Charlotte and we are looking forward to seeing you and Jack on Thursday!

Getting Some Stuff Done...

Thanks so much to my super duper awesome Mom and Dad for keeping the kids this weekend so John and I could have a much needed "Home Improvement" weekend! I have been wanting to get some painting and organizing done around the house for a while but it was never a good time with 3 little "helpers" running around the house. Now that I am in full blown "nesting" mode I was itching to get it done.

I sorted through 3 boxes of baby girl clothes, got Lucy's dresser painted, the living room carpet steam cleaned, and the playroom purged of some useless odds and ends and broken toys and rearranged! John got the grass cut and spent the rest of our quiet time painting our bedroom :) Although I did not sleep as soundly as I thought I would, it was wonderful not have to get up multiple times during the night to a screaming Lucy. I was definitely able to catch up on some MUCH NEEDED sleep! For that alone, my parents are my heroes (there are many other reasons as well :)

Next on the list is to get Lucy's dresser into her and Abby's room and move her clothes into it so I can finish sorting through the baby clothes and getting them into the changing table. I also need to clean out the closet in the baby's room and make sure I have supplies ready for her arrival. WHEW! Oh yeah, I'm cooking Thanksgiving dinner this Thursday so I need to get out my recipes and write out my shopping list then figure out when I'm going to do the shopping. I got the turkey last night so at least I'm good there. I keep having nightmares that I won't be able to find any sweet potatoes or green beans!!!

I changed my next OB visit to 8:40 on Wednesday morning since John's hours changed for Tuesday and Wednesday he would actually be able to go with us (the kids are off so we'll be making it a family event). John hasn't met my doctor yet so I figured this would be a good chance to do that. I was having contractions off and on all day Friday and Saturday so we'll see if they accomplished anything! Just praying she hangs in there until Dec. 5th. After that I'll be ready :) Of course she'll probably come on that day during the Clemson vs. South Carolina game! That's more Tiger fan entering the world :)

Thanks again Mom and Dad...what you did for us this weekend is SO SO SO SO SO appreciated! Even if you did let Abby wear Lucy's dress as a shirt ;P

Baby Update...

I had another checkup this morning. I was supposed to go last Friday but since both the girls were running fevers and coughing I had to reschedule.

Peanut is still doing great. Heartrate in the 140's and my BP was 100/60. The dr. checked me again and I am NOT dilated at all right now but she is pretty confident that Peanut is in the head down position! YAY!!!!!

My GBS test was positive so the dr. said that she would like me to try to call sooner rather than later when I think I am in labor so they can try to get the antibiotic into me before she is born. The dr. mentioned something about 4 hours worth and I laughed. I told her that with both the girls my contractions were extremely sporadic throughout the day and then only got more consistent when they were about 6-7 minutes apart. At that point the contractions would get more intense and things would start moving much quicker and birth would usually happen within the next hour.

We'll have to see what happens. I go back again next Wednesday!

Also, Abby had her follow-up visit with the dentist this morning and he said everything was looking good! I'll make all 3 of them an appointment for their regular teeth cleaning in January.

Dear Santa,

This year for Christmas I would like some good sleep. Not only for me but for my 2 year old daughter who keeps waking up at least 1-4 times a night hollering, "Mommy I need you!". She will NOT let her Daddy hold her and comfort her at night even though he tries (bless his heart). At least one or two of the middle of the night wakings involve sitting with her in the recliner for an hour to an hour an a half before she decides she's ready to "take a nap". If you have a book that will help us figure out why she is doing this and ways to help her overcome it that would be great too.

I know that if she were to sleep through the night restfully and peacefully then the rest of us would be able to follow suit. Please Santa, I don't need expensive electronics or jewelry or clothes...JUST SOME COTTON PICKIN' SLEEP AT NIGHT!!!!!!!!!

I'll take care of getting her some toys to put under the tree if you will take care of the sleep issue. Bring along your friend, Mr. Sandman if you have to...I'm getting desperate here. New baby coming in less than 5 weeks so my sleep time is going to be cut drastically short anyway.

Okay, Thanks Santa. Have safe travels on Christmas Eve...I'll probably see you when you stop by...I'll be up with someone I'm sure!

One Tired (and slowly losing it) Mama

Happy Birthday to my Mama!

Today is my beautiful, wonderful, fun, "young" (she's only 20 years older than me)
Mama's birthday!

I know this post is a little late but I had my hands full today.

Love you so much Mom!

Hope you have had a great day so far and the rest of the day.
You are very loved by your children and your (almost) 8 grandchildren!
Thanks so much for everything you have done, and continue to do for all of us :)

A Little Late...Lucy's 2nd Birthday Post

Okay, so it's more than a "little" late. Better late than never though...right?

Waaaaaaaay back in September (the 16th to be exact), our little Lucy turned the ripe old age of 2! We had a small "Monkey-themed" party with a monky cake, banana bread, monkey bread, banana puffs, and frozen chocolate dipped bananas on a stick! I'm pretty sure Lucy had a great time. We had a couple of family friends over and her cousins Jack, Molly, Sophie, and Macy joined the fun as well. Nana, Papa, Mimi, and Shea-Shea were here too :)

The monkey cake I made...

Our little monkey getting ready to blow out her "2" candle

Hangin' out with Nana in the back yard...

So, even though it is now 2 months past her birthday, this is what our little Lucy has been up to...
~ Vocabulary is amazing and I can't even begin to list the words she uses (in correct context no less) and says. She will carry on a meaningful conversation with us and understands and responds to questions. She LOVES to sing and since Abby sings the songs she learns at school around the house (non-stop), Lucy has picked up on them and will sing "Jesus Loves Me", "America the Beautiful", "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star", "Life is a Highway" (from the Disney movie Cars), "Onward Christian Soldiers", "the ABC song", and a couple of others from her music cd in her room. She will repeat anything she hears someone else saying (gotta be careful!). When she sees or hears something that she really likes she will say "Holy Sacasoly" or "Oh.My.Gosh." She also loves to say prayers with her daddy at night and asks for the specific prayers by name and can recite them along with John or finish the sentences.
~ Sleeping is...hit or miss would be the nice way of putting it. She is still fighting sleeping in the big girl bed at night but does well in it for daytime naps. She does still (most of the time) take a
morning and afternoon nap, just because she gets up at the crack of dawn and has been waking up 2-3 times a night, sometimes staying up for about 1-2 hours. We have tried the one nap thing and she just doesn't get enough sleep to make up for what she is losing at night. Since she has been sick this week, sleep at night has been even worse. I am praying that she will outgrow this before the baby gets here in a few weeks.
~ Potty Training? Ha! Let's not go there right now okay? She has ZERO interest in it and may be the first child in history to go to college in a pull-up! Seriously though, I am just trying to make it through the Holidays (and child birth for that matter) and we will begin to get down to "business" (pun intended) in the Spring.
~Pappies (aka pacifiers)? Yep, still has them. Yeah, I'm a bad mom for not taking them away sooner but for now the whole sleep situation that I mentioned above would be a MILLION TIMES WORSE without them! I keep thinking that I am looking at another 3+ months of sleep deprivation once the baby gets here (if she follows in her brother and sister's footsteps) with nursing so I'm not going to take away from the little sleep I will be getting by fighting Lucy back to sleep without her pacifier! That can wait for the Spring as well.
~ Eating? She would eat all day if I let her! Unfortunately, unless chips, pretzels, fruit snacks, crackers, or cookies become official food groups, she doesn't have the best eating habits. We do limit what she gets but if she were given HER choice ALL the time, she certainly would not be choosing salad :) She is getting a little better. She loves green pepper strips and apple slices and grapes. She also likes yogurt but will only eat it when she is in the mood. She will ask for other things like carrots but then takes bite and spits it out saying "I don't like that". She is definitely a "snacker" like her sister. I told John last night maybe that is why God chose not to give us another boy. The way Max eats now (pretty much head to head with his dad), if we had another boy with his appetite we'd both be working 3 jobs just to buy groceries! Lucy will eat what I serve her but it is usually in very small amounts.
~ Playing? She is into her baby dolls BIG TIME! She loves to play with Max and Abby and is crushed when they try to exclude her from doing something with them. She will play on her own for short periods of time but when she gets too quiet I have to inspect because she is usually making a colossal mess (pulls all the the hairties out of the bathroom drawer, pulls all of her pull-ups onto the floor, gets a hold of a box of baby wipes and pulls them all out of the box!) She likes pushing her babies in the stroller and putting her "best friend" bobby (her lovey) in the high chair and "feeding" him.

~ Is she ready to be a big sister? Some days I think so but others I am not so sure. I have been babysitting for the past couple of months for a 1 year old little boy. She loves having him come over but I also see spurts of jealousy there when he needs my attention and she wants it. She talks about her baby sister but we'll have to see how she does once the baby is actually here and taking up a lot of my time. Lucy is DEFINITELY a Mama's girls right now!
And there you have it! Lucy has embraced being 2 years old with gusto! She is displaying her temper with frequency when she doesn't get what she wants or just when she feels like it. Time outs are becoming more and more frequent for her as she is learning (I hope) to get herself under control. She likes to lash out at Abby when she's mad and will pull her hair or smack at her for now reason. We are trying VERY hard to nip this behavior in the bud quickly and make her see that she needs to use words when she's mad and not hurt someone. Max and Abby did not do these behaviors so it's new territory right now. They were kind enough to just scream at the top of their lungs and throw themselves onto the floor in a fit when they were mad. Lucy is most definitely her own person and we love her (and her siblings of course) just as they are.
Peace and quiet is highly overrated...don't you think? :)

Fevers + Coughing = NO SLEEP!

We're still fighting the great Swine War in our house. Last night has probably been the worst (sleepwise) since I came down with it Saturday night. Lucy has had a little bit of a cough all week but other than that was fine. Last night, after I was finally able to doze off on the couch (I've slept there the past two nights since John has been sick I wanted him to be able to have the whole bed...I know...I'm too nice), I heard Lucy starting to fuss. The past few nights she has been only waking up once then goes back to sleep until about 7:15am. Last night however, as soon as I sat up to go up to her I heard it...the croup cough (insert my fussing here).

I got her up and held her in the recliner for about an hour and a half. I cracked the living room window beside the chair because it was SO cold outside I didn't feel like dragging us both out into it. I was extremely uncomfortable during this time because Baby Girl has been trying out new positions lately and the one she was in last night was NOT conducive to a reclining position on my back!

I got Lucy back up to bed but after that I was up for a few hours doing my own coughing. I decided it would be a good idea to take a couple of puffs on the inhaler when I started coughing so much and couldn't catch my breath all the way. After that I was coughing (much more productive) a lot more and I couldn't get comfortable. That's about the time Lucy woke up again. John took a turn with her this time and I was able to catch a nap for about an hour and a half. By then it was time for John to get up for work and I had to get Max up. Lucy was awake by this time...grrrrrr.

I'm not exactly sure how we made it to Abby's school this morning and then back home again but I plunked Lucy down for a nap as soon as we got home and then crawled into my bed. I set the alarm for 2 hours hoping Lucy would be accommodating...well, I got about another hour and a's something.

I'm expecting tonight to be bad again then hopefully tomorrow night we can be doing better.

When it Rains it Pours...

For today that is certainly a true enough statement! Ida has decided to dump some rain on the Southeast coast this morning...WOW! I just saw my neighbor walking his small dog down the sidewalk in a downpour and I wondered why he didn't just pick the poor dog (who now looks like a drowned rat) up and run :)

It is also now "pouring" sick in our house (not sure if that analogy made sense or not but who cares?). Abby is on her 3rd day at home from school with a fever and a cough and guess who else is home sick today and on guessed it...John! He came home early from work yesterday because he was starting to go downhill fast. He's taking the day off today and hopefully the Tamiflu will kick in enough to make him feel better by tomorrow. We were praying he wouldn't have to use his last sick day for an actual sickness because it was the ONLY day he was going to have to take off when the baby comes. I guess I'll be jumping right in with both feet and 4 kids when I get home from the hospital. At least he'll have 2 long weekends in a row with Christmas and New Years.

I was really hoping Abby was doing better yesterday since she played all morning but about 2pm her fever came back and even with Motrin wouldn't go completely away. I gave her more Motrin at bedtime last night and tried to give her some cough medicine to help her be able to rest and she promptly threw it up all over her bed! Once she fell asleep she was okay for most of the night but there was a chorus of coughing going on for a good part of the night between John and Abby and even Max (who has a cough but that is it...I hope that's ALL he gets)!

I just keep telling myself to look forward to next week because I'm sure (well, praying anyway) that everyone will be healthy again by next week!

I am feeling about 50-60% better today. I am still coughing which has torn up my throat and made my voice very husky. My head is also having a hard time deciding if it is going to be stuffy or not...don't know what's going on there. I have off and on headaches but haven't taken any Tylenol since 9am this morning :) Which means I haven't had a fever since this morning either. Up until then my temp would start to rise again about an hour before it was time to take more so I'm thinking this is good.

After my post on Saturday night I went to bed but was really only able to sleep for about 30 minutes. I woke up feeling worse and a little nauseous. I had bought somne Ginger Ale since my dr. had said the Tamiflu might upset my stomach. After about another hour I realized that I was having a hard time catching my breath while I was laying down. I sat up for a while and then started having pain in the center of my chest which travelled to my back and spread around me completely like I was being wrapped in bandages. I called my dr. back at about 12:30am and she felt like I should go in to the ER to have them check me just to make sure I didn't have pneumonia.

I got there and got checked out (my bp was 95/62...imagine that!) and they said my lungs were clear (YAY!) but that I was having bronchospasms more than likely caused by the virus. I was given a breathing treatment, which made me throw up about halfway through. Once the nausea was gone I finished the treatment and could tell a difference in my breathing and the pain in my chest was not nearly as bad. The dr. sent me home with a prescription for an albuterol inhaler. So I stopped at the 24 hour CVS pharmacy for the second time that night got my inhaler and headed home to bed.

Baby Girl has been moving around quite a bit to let me know she is doing fine;) She has been my biggest worry during this...well, her and the rest of my family of course...but she's the only one who can't get away from my germs.

I called our primary care dr (mine and John's) this morning to see if John should take Tamiflu as a precaution since he hasn't been able to get either of his flu shots yet. They are calling in a prescription for him. I am praying he doesn't get it because as hard as it is for him when I am's much much worse when he is sick ;P I love him dearly but he is one pitiful boy (read..."bad patient") when he isn't feeling well...

Prayer Request...

I have the flu. Don't know if H1N1 or Seasonal but I started coughing last night and the fever aches and chills came this evening. I called my doctor as soon as I felt the fever come on and she called in a prescription for Tamiflu for me. I took my first dose tonight and I am heading up to bed as soon as I post this.

I would like to ask for your prayers that it doesn't get worse than it is right now and that the fever, flu, or even the meds do not cause any problems for Baby Girl. Also, please pray no one else in my family gets it.


Finally!...Our October Activities

Alright already! I am going to share some of the stuff we did in the month of October. I know... you are excited :)

Every year during Fire Prevention Week, a local fire station (at the beach) hosts a Fire Safety Display. Fire trucks and even a couple of ambulances from all over the area come and park. In the past they have also had a rescue bus, a helicopter, rescue boats and jet skis. Once or twice they have even had the "Smoke House" that the fire dep't uses for training and demonstrations. We have been a few times in the past and Max loves it. The fire dep't has pizza and lemonade and cookies to eat (for free) and they also pass out the plastic fire hats (which is good because by every October our hats from the previous years are pretty beat up) and other fun stuff for the kids.

This year we went since we missed last year due to yucky weather and although it was fun, it didn't seem as big as it has in the past. They climbed on and in the fire trucks,

walked around on the rescue boats,

"drove" the jet ski,

and then took a turn on the giant inflatable slide (I don't have a picture of that because by the time Lucy and I walked to the other side of the slide to meet them at the exit they were already down).
John hiked up the hill where we thought they had parked the helicopter but it wasn't there this year. I didn't feed the kids before we left because we always have pizza when we are there. They were cleaned out of pizza within 30 minutes of the event starting! LOTS of hungry people I guess :) So, since John had to leave early to go back to work I walked around for a couple more minutes with the kids then we headed back to the car so we could go scrounge up some food somewhere.

I guess we left at the right time because as we were leaving, several of the fire trucks started heading out as well. The kids had a blast walking down the sidewalk and stopping and waving to the loud, siren blaring, horn honking, lights flashing fire trucks as they drove by. I'm pretty sure they had a good time, but Max even commented that it wasn't as big as it used to be and maybe not as much fun. We'll see how it goes next year :)

Coming Soon in another post...the Pumpkin Patch and pumpkin painting...

Peanut Update...

My appointment went well this morning. Peanut's heartrate was in the 130's, my BP was 110/62. I had the Group B Strep test done today and will get the results next week. The dr. also checked my cervix and although it is softening it is still high and dilation :)

I told her that I was concerned after taking the hospital tour that the nurse had said we have to stop and check in at the ER desk first before we go up to L&D. I said that as fast as Abby came, there would have been no time to check in! The dr. told me that if I feel like I am having the baby right then to let them know and they will get me out of the ER and upstairs so fast my head will spin :) They don't wanna be birthin' no babies in the ER!

She did tell me that if I thought I would feel more comfortable about it then she would be more than willing to schedule an induction at 39 weeks. Although I would have jumped at the chance with Abby or even Lucy, I told her I'd rather go on my own. I labor very well at home and I think staying busy and doing my normal stuff actually helps my labor go faster. I took Abby shoe shopping the day I was in labor with Lucy :) I was making beds and doing laundry while I was laboring with Abby.

My dr. was fine with it and told that if I do turn out GBS positive then she would want me to come in a little sooner than later during labor just to try to get the meds in me before the baby was born. Yeah, I told her that I would NOT be waiting until the contractions were 5 min. apart for an hour before I bothered to call. 6-7 minutes apart for 15-20 minutes is about how far I can go before I need to waddle my butt out the door and get in the car and go :) Waiting any longer than that could put John into panic mode (he still gets chills when he thinks about how close he came to almost delivering Abby in the car)!

So, now I go back every week. I'll be 34 weeks this Sunday. The dr. said if I feel like I need to take a Terbutaline any time in the next 2 weeks that is fine...but she said after 36 weeks not to worry about it because they wouldn't go to drastic measures to stop labor at that point! I have repeatedly asked Peanut to PLEASE let me make it through Thanksgiving. We'll see if this little girl listens to her mommy :)

Yes, I know...I'm Such a Slacker!

Okay, Okay! I didn't do a post after Abby's Field Trip on Tuesday. My excuse? Walking a little ove a mile, pushing a fussy Lucy in the stroller, having to take her out of the stroller to see the animals in the "forest" then fighting to put her back in the stroller so I wouldn't have to carry her the whole way and then ending up with her peeing down the front of me as I was holding her just exhausted me. All I REALLY wanted to do when we got home was change clothes...yuck...and take a nap. In reality I had to do a load of laundry (obviously) and clean up the train wreck that is my house :)

John is taking Max and Abby camping this weekend and I plan to drop Lucy off at my parents' house and do some Christmas shopping...kidless :)...maybe I can talk my mom into going with me and let Lucy and Papa spend some quality time together :)

I have a Dr. app't this morning at 9:30 so I'll at least post an update on that later today. I will more than likely be spending a big chunk of my day gathering camping "necessities" for John and Max and Abby. Ha! It's not like they are going far away or anything. They will be right across the highway from our house at a campground that is in "hiking" distance (on a paved road) or a 2 minute drive to WalMart :) Yeah, they'll be roughing it :)

October Activities...Post and Pics coming soon...

Ummmm, where did October go? It's already November 3rd? Just 3 weeks and 2 days until Thanksgiving? Crud. Apparantly my energy level is not keeping up with my growing list of things to do (or my growing belly for that matter) before this baby gets here.

I do have pics from our October activities that I will try to post later today. Abby has a field trip this morning to Charlestowne Landing and I am going to try to remember to take some pictures there as well. However, since I have to take her and it will take a while to get there I'm just going to have to wait until I get home to do an official post.

I really should use my time better and get more organized with stuff. Maybe I should spend my time that I am up with pregnancy induced insomnia/heartburn/backache in the middle of the night to do some posts! There ya go...sleep is highly overrated anyway right? That's what Lucy seems to think these days (actually nights) anyway.

Okay, off to pack a picnic lunch! Catch ya later ;P
