Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope everyone had a happy and safe Thanksgiving holiday!
I went to the Cracker Barrel with Mama, Chet, and Dena for a late lunch. I did not eat with them, be we visited and had a good time. Then it was onto dinner with Josh's side of the family. We eat at his Mema's house and Josh always fries the turkey. It was very yummy as always. Then everyone came over to our house to see Kendall's room that is almost ready. If she was born today we would be fine, but there are still a few finishing touches that need to be done...I know, I know where are the pictures? They are coming soon I promise. I want to wait until all is done so that you all can see the entire process, and it was a long process thanks to me.

Sunday Shower & Update

Josh's family hosted a shower for us yesterday. Everything was very nice and we got lots of great gifts for Kendall. Josh's Aunt Sandy took pictures and I took my camera and forgot to take any (imagine that), so I don't have any to post.

This weekend I started having a few Braxton Hicks contractions, but of course I didn't know what they were until I explained what I was feeling to Carmen & Jessi. My feet, ankles, & legs up to my knees are so swollen that they almost feel bruised, kinda like they can't possibly get any bigger. I am hanging in there otherwise. The closer it gets, I am really ready. Not because I am miserable (just uncomforatble) but because I am really impatient and I can hardly wait any longer....I am ready to meet Kendall.

Dr. Appt

I went to the doctor today and all is going great! My swelling is still normal according to the doctor, but I don't recognize these feet or ankles. I am supposed to go back in 2 weeks, but that would be Thanksgiving, so I rescheduled to the Tuesday after. My regular doctor wanted to see me the first of December anyway, so this will work out perfect. From then on out I will be going every week until the big day when we get to meet Kendall. It can't come soon enough, we are very excited to meet her.

Barney Update

I talked with Barney's new family on Monday night and he is doing great! We are very excited to hear that he is adjusting well. It makes it easier to know that he has found a great new home.

It's Officical....

I have lost my ankles! I now have cankles, according to Josh...Isn't that a nice thing to say to your pregnant wife...
Over the past week my feet & ankles have gotten HUGE. The only shoes I can wear now are my Crocs. I thought I would tell all of you in case they show me on "What Not to Wear" for wearing Crocs with every outfit. I am a real fashion plate these days.

I also got to looking at how horrible my hair looked in the pictures from the baby shower last weekend and had it all chopped off. I am not loving it yet, as it is a lot shorter than I meant for it to be. I will post pictures soon when I feel a little better about it. It really shouldn't be that big of a deal to me, since about 7 years ago I lost all my hair during my mystery illness. I guess I need to look on the bright side....It could always be worse. I could be bald with cankles....

A New Home for Barney

Our cat Barney was not adjusting to the baby items in the house or the change from extra bedroom to nursery. (That room used to be his hangout)
We are very sad today at our house because Barney went to his new home today. He will be the only inside animal there, so I am sure he will be very spoiled. Please know that this was a very hard decision for us to make and we are hoping that we found him the best home possible. I am pretending that he has gone to college, since he is the oldest child we have. His new family has promised to email pictures and give us updates on how he is doing at his new home.

Baby Shower

Saturday some of my very best friends Carmen, Mollie, & Kristin hosted a Baby Shower for Kendall. Here are some pictures.
Here is me with Carmen...This is so not the greatest picture of me.

Here I am with some friends from high school. Alicia, who is expecting baby #2 (not that you can even tell) and Carly with her sweet little boy Davis. Is he not the cutest?

Here are some of the presents that Kendall got. Is she spoiled or what?
(I can't get these sized right, so sorry that they are so big. If you click on them I think you may can see a little more)

Thanks again to all who helped and came to the shower. Everything was perfect and we got really great gifts for our little girl.

Trick or Treat

Josh took Grady to Trick or Treat Friday night. Normally we all go, but that was a little too much walking for my swollen feet. I kept Bogey & Charley while they were gone. Here are some pictures of them in costumes.
This little piggy went to Trick or Treat....

Charley had to settle for a bandana...They don't make "big girl" costumes.

Here is a boney little Bogey with his skeleton shirt on.
