On to Christmas!

We had a great Thanksgiving!

We spent it with Steven's family in Arco. We ate lots of amazing food, played SPOONS, watched football, and laughed a lot! It was a wonderful time with family!

On Friday Steven and I made the one hour drive to Idaho Falls at 5:30 in the morning to do some Black Friday shopping! I was so proud of myself, I had everything mapped out. I had found this website, where it has all the Black Friday ads online. So I was able to browse through all of them a week in advance and make a printable list of everything I wanted to get. So we stopped at Staples, Circuit City, Target, Best Buy, The Mall, Sportsman Warehouse, Wal-Mart, Home Depot and Auto Zone. I was able to get just about everything on my list and we were finished within three hours! And we even had breakfast somewhere in there. I was so proud of myself at the good deals we got and I had lots of fun shopping with Steven. It was the highlight of our weekend!

Now my goal is to get our Christmas decorations up tonight. My plan was to put them up a week ago but we got really busy. And now I'm kinda dreading it. I usually love to decorate, but this year I just don't have the energy to pull everything out of our shed and pick and choose what goes up, and only for 30 days! I'm especially not looking forward to setting up the tree. What a hassle! But, I know I'll be happy once everything is up, I just need to bite the bullet and do it!

Tomorrow I'll be 17 weeks along! To my excitement, I'm starting to get a little noticeable baby bump! Now I just can't wait until I can start feeling the baby move and kick. Five more weeks until our next ultrasound!
