After a long day of shopping (getting up at 4am!) I was in the Christmas spirit so we decorated the house! The tree, the garland, the stockings...you name it! We put on Christmas music and went to town! It was fun! We even made hot coco! Then, Chad nearly had to carry me upstairs cuz I passed out on the couch!

This is my new diaper bag! I had to stand outside a baby boutique for about 30 minutes on Black Friday to get it. The store didn't open until 8am, but Chad and i got there early. Good thing because there were a few other cars in the parking lot, but no-one standing in line. So, I walked up to the door after scoping out the competition (yep...they were all waiting for the boutique to open.) I even called the lady inside the store and asked how many diaper bags they had. I told her I was waiting outside by the door for it so she didn't think I was some weirdo...but, well it was black Friday and that's what people do on that day! Anyways, I was contemplating waiting in the car, but when she said she only had one...I stayed put. Then, as Chad would describe it "pregnant women came out of the wood works like vultures circling their kill" to get in line too!
When I found out another lady wanted the same diaper bag (cuz us prego women all ended up chatting outside the store!) I was soooo glad I had got in line instead of waiting in the car! I was first in the store and first to check out. Then I quietly walked out of there so there wouldn't be any confrontations. Can you imagine!
FYI: Chad tells the story with a bit more drama...he adds that I held up my fist and scowled at the other cars intimidating them as I scoped out my competition. I deny the fist shaking and scowling...but I don't deny looking at all the cars to scope out my competition.
You're thinking...it's just a diaper bag. And yes it is JUST a diaper bag, but it was 1/2 off! Very cool!

So I ordered 40lbs of apples...Why you ask? I don't think I realized how many apples were in 40lbs. My intentions were to have enough apples to make applesauce to hand out during the Christmas and to make a few apple pies. Well, I have more apples than I know what to do with. I'm beginning the apple sauce today, but I have a feeling I'm going to be bonding with my pressure cooker and canner all weekend! Seriously, if anyone wants some home-made applesauce...just let me know!
Note to self: Next year...split the 40lb box with a friend!

Here's another pic of my bump. So this week I've discovered that my peripheral vision isn't quite as good as it used to be! I've been running into things and accidentally bumping into my cats. I realized that I can't see what's near my feet cuz my belly is in the way of my peripheral vision. One time I walked into the garage and kicked a power tool that Chad had put on the ground. I kinda hurt so I instinctively got a little annoyed because it was left out in the middle of the garage floor. However, when I looked back at it, it was off to the side and grouped together with other tools. So really, I just walked right into it...it wasn't chad's fault at all! He such a good husband though...he moved them a little more out of the way (although they were out of the way to begin with!), just to be safe!
I love him sooo much!
Roman's been doing his pushing thing more and more! It seems as though he likes to push in a certain place so I've been getting used to the feeling and am really enjoy it! I'm still not sure if it's his knee or his bum. However, I'm thinking it's his bum from the size of the surface area that is covered during the push.
So I think Roman might turn into a circus performer cuz he's constantly moving throughout the day. He's a wild one! Wooo Whooo! Thank you, Lord for my beautiful baby boy!

This pic was taken last night...I'm in the middle of my 26th week. Roman is growing so fast. I love it when he wakes me up in the morning with his little gentle kicks. He doesn't kick at night...just a little before I go to bed, nothing at night, then he wakes me up with kicks in the morning. Maybe it's his way of saying that he's hungry! He is such a good boy. I love him soooo much!
