29 Weeks and my 2nd shower!

Happy Thanksgiving friends! I can't believe it is already Thanksgiving! My family is all coming to our house on Wednesday! I have bought all the groceries, done some cleaning, and now tomorrow I will make the pies and a few other things. I also washed all of Burke's clothes and blankets in Dreft this week! Greg and I had fun folding and hanging up the little outfits that will looks so precious on our cutie!

I had my second shower this last Saturday given by Karin and Stephanie. It was great! I had a wonderful time seeing all my girlfriends. The theme was circus like Burke's bedroom. It was so cute! They had carmel corn, mini corn dogs, candy, peanuts, and the most yummy lemon cupcakes that Steph made! I received all the bedding for the nursery, the Papasan Cradle swing, diapers, and a few incidentals. I loved everything I received and I know Burke will too! My good and long time friend, Suzanne, made the trip from Ft. Hood. It was so special that she came to my shower! Her husband, Bill, is serving in Iraq, so I know it was a lot for her to load up three kids and make the three hour drive by herself. I am so grateful for this bunch of girlfriends. I played Bunco with them one time as a sub and they liked me so asked me to join, that was almost two years ago. They have become so special to me. I wish we could get together more often!

Tippy Cup Race! I must tell you, that I won!

The pregnant girls...Carrie is four weeks behind me....

I am starting to feel like I am in the home stretch. I had my two showers, I have Thanksgiving, then the railroad Christmas party, birthing class, then my first book club meeting, followed by couples Poker and then Christmas! January will go slow I am sure, but December should fly by. Greg and I are getting super excited! The anticipation is growing daily! How much will Burke weigh, will he be short, will he have Greg's blue eyes, will his skin be like mine (sensitive), will he need glasses, will he be cool and calm like Greg, will he have a nice smile, we must sit around and talk about this stuff everyday.

I think that is all for now. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
