Decorating for Christmas

Well, we're putting up stuff now, but here are some pics from the process. We really do have a lot of Christmas decorations. This was really before everything was out. But, since we didn't host anything, we never really finished making it look nice and it stayed messy. Oh well.

Soccer party

Gracie had her soccer party at Mazzio's a few weeks ago. We were the only parents (I think) who didn't bring gifts for all the girls. It was nice. There was some pressure to play again. Not sure we're going to be able to do that.

Our Thanksgiving was busy, then not. I had a conference for school on the Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday before in Dallas, so I was there. Then I came back Saturday night and Scott, Grace and I went back up to visit his parents Sunday. It was a nice trip, but a lot of time in the car. We listened to Snuff by Terry Pratchett, which was good. We came home Tuesday. Grace went with my mom Thursday to visit her aunt, so we were alone for Thanksgiving day. I worked for about 6 hours at school, then we went to a friend's house, which was nice. I got sick, which sucked. It's the first time in a long time that I've had sinus/allergy crud and I had it bad. I went to a movie Friday and did some mystery shops, then spent a lot of time in bed. It was nice. My sewing machine is finally back in session, so I was able to use it, but didn't really. Gracie had a good time with mawmaw, but we were ready for school to start back.

I really am not good at updating this thing during the school year. I'm tired. The tadpole is sucking the life out of me. Not really. Some days I feel great. Other times I feel like lying in bed with the heating pad all day. We had our first bout of cold weather here and we're about to have another. Cold for here is pretty mild for most folks, but we're not used to it.
The tadpole is good. I went to the doctor last week and he was pleased. I've gained 3 lbs. The heartbeat was good. The height of the fundus was good. So I posted it on facebook. We're going back on Jan. 3 to see the ultrasound. Can't wait! Boy? Girl? We don't really care. A boy would be different. A girl would be easier - materials wise because we saved a lot of stuff from Gracie. We're just grateful either way - but we are going to find out. We have to plan!
