Happy Thanksgiving

So, we began Thanksgiving with our annual tradition- sausage balls and a big 'ole parade. My thoughts this year: Xanadu? On Broadway? What producer in his right mind takes a massive flop on the big screen and thinks that somehow it will translate to gold on the Great White Way? I don't know, but those roller skates got my T-Day off to a trippy start. It was saved however by "Mary Poppins," "Young Frankenstein" and Al Roker. Have I mentioned that I love this man? I really think I have a secret crush on Al Roker. I guess it's not so secret anymore.

Then Rob and I went to my brother in laws house for Thanksgiving with his extended family, plus ours. It was a wonderful day and next year little Bennett will have to join Mommy and Daddy on the hayride. Maybe it won't be as cold.

The rest of the weekend was spent with my family celebrating my mom's birthday. We ate a lot, took long walks, watched movies, went and saw a play, and ate some more. It was a wonderful weekend and I am constantly amazed at how much I have to be thankful for. God has blessed me beyond measure, and I don't say that lightly, but am truly sincere in my gratitude for all He has blessed me with.

Happy Halloween

So, we aren't as cute as kids in bunny costumes, but what can you do? Here we are as royalty bowing down before our queen.

So, Willow Creek, has come out and stated publicly that the way they do Church today is not working all that well and that they aren't making disciples as Jesus intended. Whether or not you agree or disagree with the questions they are posing, you should definitely check out their video. I am interested in seeing the reaction from Willow Creek's announcement. Regardless of the outcome, I think Hybles and the other pastors were very brave to publicly admit mistakes in the way they do church and that honesty and sincerity should be commended.

I'm a slacker..... I know.

Maybe it's the lack of sleep, maybe it's the writers strike that has captured all of my attention, maybe it's the fact that my friends are the best bloggers in the world, and I can't keep up... I don't know. However, I know that I have been sadly negligent in updating our blog and so tonight I am going to remedy that.

Thoughts on Pregnancy:

You know how everyone talks about being in a crowded room and feeling completely alone? That's sort of how pregnancy feels. Now don't get me wrong. If there is a woman within three feet of you who has ever in her lifetime

a. Been pregnant

b. Thought about getting pregnant

c. Known someone who was pregnant

then she will have an opinion. I guarantee it. And usually the result of these conversations is that I have not experienced any of the symptoms that she or her Aunt Gladys did and so now I am convinced my baby will be an alien. Or I am having symptoms that she and her Aunt Gladys never had so now I am even more convinced my baby will be an alien. So, that's why I am in a room surrounded by people and I am tired, grumpy, and probably in pain somewhere, but I don't dare mention it else I be swarmed by the ABC option above, or my Mom will make me go to the hospital. It's an interesting journey.

So, Rob doesn't like it when I yell at the dogs. He thinks it scares the baby. He promised her last night he would get her out of there soon and is working on a plan to spring her from her jail. He has no idea how narrowly a shoe flying through the air missed his head. I forgive him though because he writes funny songs about our baby and our dog. They make no sense and don't ever really have a melody, but they make me laugh, and that goes a long way these days.

Four more months until the baby. So far the name count has been narrowed down to Caroline, Bennett, Laney, and Hey You. I would ask your thoughts, but really, I am too confused as it is. This was just for those of you out there who are dying to monogram something. All shall be revealed soon enough.
