Recap from the past few days

Believe it or not, we've had a very relaxing four-day weekend. On Wednesday night, we had our first childbirth class. It wasn't as scary as we thought, but I know we'll both learn a lot. Out of the eight couples in our class, we were the only ones expecting a surprise baby. We think it's neat that we're waiting to find out, so we thought a few more people would do that, too. I guess we're a novelty! We had a great Thanksgiving with our families. Chris loves having two big meals on one day! We spent Friday morning decorating our Christmas tree and setting out our other decorations.

Next year, three stockings will hang on our fireplace!

We spent Friday afternoon watching a few movies. It was a much-needed break from the busyness of life. Saturday morning, while Chris was mulching the last of the leaves in our yard, my mom, Karen and I added some items to Cheeto's baby registry. I'll make one more visit to the store with Chris' mom later this week. Then our registry will be complete. Yesterday we also chose the carpet for Cheeto's nursery. It should be installed by Christmas. Then we'll have to buy the furniture and set up the room! After that, there are only a few minor things left on our Cheeto to do list. Friday also started the final trimester. I can't believe I'm in the homestretch. That means Cheeto will be here in about three months. Wow!
