i had the strangest experience yesterday. well ok not really but it kind of tickled me. a whole bunch of people were telling me that i look very small for 30 weeks. LOL. i think it was just the sweater i was wearing, because my belly is quite large! and my friend zhou said to make sure i eat a lot so my baby can come out fat and chubby! lol. as if i need to be told. when i’m hungry, i eat, and only then!
anyway, i hope everyone had a great weekend. ours was ok. i was feeling pretty bad off and on. i hope it is over now. this week is going to be kind of crazy for us. we have the newborn care class on wed night, then a dr appt. and the expectant parents’ class on thurs. on sat, the friends’ shower is here at my house.
i found out yesterday we’re having thanksgiving dinner at our house this year. we’re not having it on thurs though, we’re having it the saturday after. for thanksgiving day, mom, jannelle and i are going to find a place that we can serve dinner to homeless people. my brother goes with natalie to her family’s for thanksgiving day, plus jerry works on that day this year. (which i’m actually happy about, because it means that he has Christmas off!!) personally our family doesn’t care as much about the correct day of holidays, it’s just the thought of them, and being together that we focus on. we are thankful year-round for God’s wonderful blessings, but this thanksgiving will be so meaningful, since we are expecting the first baby on my side of the family. that is definitely something to be thankful for! 🙂
i know i’ve babbled enough, but i wanted to mention that jerry is working on this blog system. he has added a block ip function, and he’s working on smilies right now! soon you’ll be able to add smilies when you comment, and my posts will have smilies. 🙂 how fun is that?! he let me pick out a bunch that i like. there are some pretty fun ones! he was testing it the other day and said, ‘you sure use a lot of the plain smilie.’ lol and i know i do! i use it all the time! hehe
well anyway, i need to get off here so i can go say hi to everyone before my back gives out!!
huggles and blessings!

    It sounds like you have a busy week ahead.
    It sounds like you have a busy week ahead. I like your idea for Thansgiving. Dh and I really would have perferred doing that than eating on our lonesome (which we did last year.) This year we have a couple invites to peoples houses. So no more sad lonely Thanskgiving! lol.

    I just anwanted to tell you that when people start telling you that you are HUGE for 30 weeks… well, then you’ll feel a whole ‘nother range of emotions. hee hee. If one more person asks me if I am due… Errrrr.

    Hope your monday went well sweetie! IN my family we never could
    Hope your monday went well sweetie! IN my family we never could celebrate on the day either since my sister is a nurse and works eves and most holidays weve always picked another day she had off. Since we’ve had the boys we dont travel for christmas either- we do christmas here for them so they can have thier tree and gifts and then we leave the next day to go visit relatives and have family get togethers. Love ya both!( all three:) cant leave Jerry out!)

    hi jenn!don’t worry, i’m told that i look small all the time too
    hi jenn!
    don’t worry, i’m told that i look small all the time too! it actually kinda hurts my feelings. i feel like i’m not a ‘normal’ size for where i should be at my month. some people just don’t realize that baby size doesn’t have anything to do with belly size 🙂 also first pregnancies often are accompanied by small tummied-mommies :o) i can put on a sweater and disquise my belly lol.
    i am sooo jealous of jerry! i wish i had the web programming knowledge that he does. i’d love to be able to create my own tag board and make custom smilies. i have no idea how to even make a php or asp page. i want to make my site better!
    we’re going to take that newborn care class too. the one at my hospital is $80 per couple! i guess it’s all worth it though 🙂
    anyways take care. talk to you soon!

    My goodness, you’re one busy mama! My sister-in-law’s shower is this Saturday, too 🙂 How fun!

    Des (my s.i.l.) was here on Sunday for Boo’s party and she said she’s starting to feel little hiccups and bumps & kicks. What a fun stage of pregnancy this is! You’re in the final stretch, Jenn, won’t be long until January and Jeremiah are here!

    the etiquette fairy is someone who posts on the BRATS! rant page
    the etiquette fairy is someone who posts on the BRATS! rant page, a place childfree people talk about how horrible kids and their parents are, some of the posts are horrible, I’m sorry someone is giving you a hard time about something that doesn’t really matter. It doesn’t affect her if you have one shower or four. (oh, the brats! site is http://www.fred.net/turtle/kids/kidrants if you want to go look, just know some people say some nasty stuff there. worst i saw was a person who gave out chocolate covered peanuts on halloween in hopes a kid with allergies would eat one and die.)
