The December that got away.

What an insane month it has been! Wow, it has totally flown by. We've had a lot going on and to say that is an understatement. A few things....

*I am now 34 weeks pregnant. I went to the Dr. last week and was kept for over 2 hours for my blood pressure. I never have high blood pressure, so they were a little concerned. Ended up being told to REST, REST, REST. I have really pushed myself this month. I keep getting these bursts of energy and think that I must do things. I have a hard time saying no. You probably knew that. :) I just really love this time of year and I love being a part of everything. It's pride, I'm sure! So, I have been taking it easier these days. It pains me to leave some things undone, but I am learning in the midst of it.

*Jason turned 34 on Sunday. We had a really insane weekend with a wedding and worship rehearsals, but on Monday we got to celebrate and I surprised him with an iPad!!! It was the best gift I've ever given. Jason is SUPER hard to surprise and because he handles all of our money I didn't know how I was going to make it happen without him knowing. It worked out fabulously and I was so glad I had the opportunity to bless him. My favorite comment of the whole weekend was hearing him say, "I think a light went off. I have never felt this blessed or joyful in my life." I loved that. So glad he had an awesome birthday!

*I had zero Christmas shopping done until Saturday. It's been so crazy and I have been so tired, that I had no time to get out there. As of yesterday, I am 80% there. I have to go today and get a few more things and then I am done! I've never been this late. I remember my poor mom having to go out on Christmas Eve and do shopping when we were kids because her bonus check didn't come till then. I totally feel her pain and now realize why she was such an emotional wreck that week. I am grateful!

*Jackson & Reagan have gotten to spend a lot of time with their cousins this week. I loved this picture. I found him in the garage like this. He said, "What?? I am waiting for my cousins to get here."

*This picture TOTALLY cracks me up of Reagan. She got a comb stuck in here hair and was just as happy as could be. Ha.

Oh my kids....

And one last thing...

this was Jack at his Christmas performance. He is the 2nd to last on the right and the loudest, of course. You won't be able to miss him. I don't know where he got this desire to sing in front of others, but it wasn't me.
