Doctors appointment went great today..well, if you think great consists of waiting another week! Blahhh!!! At least he is healthy and happy....I just keep telling him he would be so much happier out here! I will go back in next Wednesday and we'll see how things are progressing at that point. Guess I wont have a Christmas Baby, but for my sanity I hope he makes it by New Years!! :)

JoElyn drew my name this year and got me the fabulous Fiesatware Relish/Utility Trays! She didn't even know I had been wanting them! They are being discontinued after December 31st! They are the perfect size for a cob of sweet corn or a hot dog :) Soo cute! She also gave me the Cowboy Night Before Christmas book...it is sooo adorable! Can't wait to read it to Merritt!! The Farmer's parents gave me the Wise men set to my Willow Tree Nativity (below) They have been giving me a set every year since we got engaged..only a few more pieces and it will be complete! Love it!!! All the girls also got purple tool sets! And we got some other fun stuff in our stockings! AND we ate and ate and ate!! :)
They brought him this super fun soft farm block set by Galt!
They are sooo cute!
I'm pretty sure the elves found these on Zulily, not sure where else you can get them :)
p.s. I go back to the doc in the morning! My blood pressure has been good at the last two appointments, but I am still on the modified bed rest just to make sure it stays down. Hopefully he will come soon! Only 11 more days until my due date, but he is fully cooked at this point, so anytime is good with me :)

These are from me and the Farmer...
V-Tech Push and Learn Pony
V-Tech Sit-to-Stand Farm Walker
And The Little People Nativity!! I got this one off Ebay, because I liked the look of it better than the new one they have out!
No, I'm not gonna wrap them...I'm sure he won't mind!!! ha!!
This is what Santa is bringing him...he decided to drop it off early! hehe :)
'Twas The Night Before Christmas Little People Set! Soo cute!
Of course the Elves are coming to visit too, but you will have to wait until the week before Christmas for that!!
The appointment went GREAT!! My blood pressure was back to normal!! The bad news is I have to continue the bed rest routine in order to keep it normal...blahhh!!!! At this point we are just taking it week by week, so STAY TUNED!!! Maybe I will have a Christmas Baby afterall :)

You see that big box in the corner wrapped in blue/white snowmen?!?! That's to me from the Farmer!!! He just brought it in one day and put it under the tree....umm who are you and where is my husband?!?! Can't wait to open it!!! Speaking of the Farmer, he has been such a trooper since I got put on bedrest. He cooks, he cleans, he picks up all the things I drop (never thought I could get more clumsy!), he comforts me when I cry over the dumbest things, he even puts on my shoes & socks when it's time for my daily walk (no! I can't put them on by myself...we past that point weeks ago!!) He basically waits on me hand and foot. Not sure I am gonna be able to go back to doing things for myself when this is all over! What a sweet boy I married :) Last night he put together the swing and the stroller that have been sitting in my office in boxes since this summer...things got really REAL when I decided to push the stroller around, i felt like a Momma!!! :)

I have some super cute Christmas decor pics to share as soon as feel like uploading and editing them! So stay tuned :)
Ohh on another note, at my shower, my friend Cora had on this AMAZING sparkle OPI red nail polish that just screamed Christmas/Holiday Season. I had been meaning to pick some up at the salon, but didn't have a chance before I got put on house arrest..I mean bed rest, ha! Anyway, the Farmer and his little sis JoElyn made a Wal-Mart run for me on Saturday, so I wouldn't have to get out. Thank goodness JoJo went along, she picked me up some rubbish celebrity magazines along with a couple of fun Christmas romance novels to try and ward off the boredom! They also, so sweetly, swung by the salon and picked up the FABULOUS nail polish I had been wanting!! It's called Gettin' Miss Piggy With It, from the Muppets OPI line!
It's sooo holiday, right?!?! No, those aren't my nails..although I have to say, thanks to pre-natal vitamins, my nails have never looked better!! She also picked me up some plain OPI Red nail polish to put on as a base coat. I think this makes the sparkle more intense! I did my nails last night and they look sooo cute!! I hope my doctor likes them, since that's the only person I'll be seeing anytime soon..hahaha!
I'll keep yall posted on the baby cooking and try to post those decor pics soon!! Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving...December, here we come!!!

They also got Merritt another farm book, bath toys and alligator towels/washcloths!! The Eric Carle horse is from my Aunt Jan and cousins Hollye and Renae...I had no idea he made a horse either!

Me at 33 weeks...I put this pic on facebook and everybody is commenting on how good/small I look...for the record I am a photographer and know my angles, in real life I actually look like a mix between a wildebeest and shamu...no chance I am posting an unposed/candid pic of me ANYWHERE!!! haha! p.s. I HATE it when I ruin a good pic by doing the "stretch neck excited face," soo unflattering!
Me and the fabulous hostesses!! Love these gals :)
