we had an unexpected rescue @ 1am this morning in the house! i woke to bailey meowing like a crazy cat.... thought he needed food--but he would not follow me downstairs so i knew that was not it..... he just wanted to sit in the the hallway by our room!! so finally i went back to bed---as i lay there i could here this weird sound coming from the hallway-fianlly i got up and turned on the light! and in the vent i could hear some weird noises--i was thinking "MOUSE"....so i woke drew---and we figured out little miss asia had jumped in the open vent from baby b's room that we were painting and was no stuck in the hallway! so we got the vent open and rescued ASIA! she was hapy to be out and is more lovey today than most!!!!! that happened to me when i was young when i had gerbils! my parents we redoing my bathroom upstairs and my gerbils got out or maybe just one i dont remember!!! (chip and dale) but they fell in the hole and ended up in the wall by my parents bed! they woke up to crazy scratching and we had to put a hole in the wall and lure them out with cheese!!!! they were the rescuers that day! chip and dales hero!!!
- still not feeling too good---hope this does not last till baby b makes his appreance in this world!
- one random thought----wrapping paper. this year i bought one only one roll--it was a big one. only a couple of inches left and it was expensive but so worth the money! i will enver buy the cheapo stuff again. this stuff made the wrapping process nothing but easy! it cuts so nice, folds so nice and just made all the presents look no nice! it might look kind of boring since they are all the same--but i did use many different ribbons! but it was well worth the money! maybe next year i will go crazy and buy 2 of them!! :)
Merry Christmas everyone---enjoy the holidays and be safe! we are getting another storm here in MN/ND!! we just can not seem to get enough snow and wind this year!
i love these videos... i remember them from last year but forget how funny they are! so go ELF YOURSELF!!!! and giggle like we do. i have been seeing them on friends blogs again and also getting emails.... i always giggle!
i have been sick since tuesday and feeling better now and then!! well today we went to the hospital..... nothing like a dry run for what is to come in a couple of weeks!!! we hung out for about 6 hours.....getting iv fluids-tests and some rest on the comfy beds of St Mary's!!!! the highlight of the day was i got the great crushed ice!! i love that stuff!!!! feeling better right now! just hoping it stays this way now. but baby barker is as healthy as can be from what they can tell---we listened to his heart the whole day and nothing is abnormal! it sounds as if we will be doing another ultrasound soon to see how big he is since i am still measuring a couple of week ahead.... so that 47 days might be about 30!!! yikes stripes!
thanks to my mother in law for the soup it was wonderful!!! and the cookies.. thank goodness i am feeling better so i could have one or maybe two!!!
i can not beleive it is almost christmas.... time is flying by! we are now ready though---all presents are bought and wrapped up too! i thought it would be cute to buy bailey and asia some cute little santa jackets--since the love sitting under the tree i thought it would be the best picture!! well last night my friend megan was over and i thought i should put it on mr bailey---who is our cranky cat! well to say the least---at first it was funny.. he could not move he was mad-but i have never seen a cat jump straight up in the air like he did!!! then i started getting sad b/c he was dying to get out of it......drew and megan wrangled him down and got it off... still not sure how but it came off---he forgot already b/c he cuddled with me today on the couch! thank goodness he does not hold grudges... but wishing we had a video camera.... b/c it was craziness around here! he jumped so high he hit me in the nose... not even exxagerating!!
going to go watch COLD CASE!!!
to think i thought i was huge then...... we are getting so close and so EXCITED!!!! can not believe we will have a little baby boy here in about 50 days! still lots to do. i think that is our plan for the weekend! get his room all ready--- we are still waiting for the rocking chair---dad is making the crib, mom the bumper and i need to get to work on the dresser and the accessories too!
more just in the details.
this weekend when we were @ my sisters place for thanksgiving we took the fabric i thought i had wanted to baby chases crib to see how it would look.....well it is not as cute in between all the slats of the crib as i thought it would be----but the good news is she had some new fabric for burp cloths which i fell in love with! it will be perfect for the bumper. adds some more color to the room...... already got it in the mail from when i ordered it sunday too! looks so cute.
mom it is coming your way soon!
picked a paint color for the wall and also picked up the dresser from my parents house monday night!
and got a christmas tree too!!! the went and graciously cut one down for us on sunday--so monday night we wrapped it up----litterally in industrial wrap and put it on my car!! i looked like a clampit on tuesday driving around for work.... i had a dresser, all of my boxes for work stuffed in where they would fit... and bags and bags of stuff i need to return... plus my stuff for overnight!! i was plum full!!! i made it home and so did the tree!!!
drew had a great trip to SD with the boys for pheasant hunting! he does not know how he could top this trip..... they maxed out everyday easy--and had perfect weather and good company! glad thay all made it home safe! just another trip he will now add to his list of many every year! and he thinks scrap weekends are expensive! ?1!?!?!??!?!
he is now out for their first night of curling! back at it---we girls have he year off from bowling.. i miss it a bit---it was so nice always having a girls night every week! now with all of us so busy with babys and no for sure plans it gets harder and harder to get together regularly!!! especially now this time of the year!
had a docs appt yesterday and everything is good! so excited to meet him in about 9 weeks! i can not believe it is coming this fast. i better get painting! mb
