Flashback Friday {on Saturday} Pregnancy Journal, Week 28



I'm tardy, I know. Flashback Saturday just doesn't have the same ring to it. But we've been so busy, and now I'm getting sick. I just didn't get around to posting this yesterday.

edited: Why, yes Julie, I do have a couple pics from our outing. The rest are on my laptop which is still "getting fixed".

Pleasantly plump ;)

Look how much they've grown in a year!

Week 28 ~ Brrrrrr!

The calendar may say that winter officially starts on the 21st, but here in Oregon it has already begun! With highs reaching barely into the teens the last few days, it has been quite chilly!

We woke up Sunday morning to a dusting of snow, but continued about our business. Our church Christmas program was scheduled for that evening, so we didn’t want to miss rehearsal during Sunday school. Once we got to the church, they had made the decision to postpone the program. Sierra and Makenna were disappointed as they were really looking forward to belting out the tunes they’d worked so hard to learn. Of course, most of the disappointment disappeared once we got home and they were able to play in the snow.

Luckily we couldn’t have picked a better day to visit the Pittock Mansion. There weren’t many people there which meant we could take as long as we pleased looking through each room. It was just beautiful. The girls had a great time getting dressed up for the outing ~ they wore their fancy shmancy Christmas dresses. As we were headed home Sierra decided that she wanted “one” (meaning, a mansion). Oh, how she makes me laugh!

On Friday I had my 28 week appointment with yet another midwife. I have really liked the last three I’ve seen, so I knew it was only a matter of time before I saw one I wasn’t thrilled with. It wasn’t a horrible appointment, but it felt very rushed, and the midwife was more than a little scatter-brained and disorganized. I was also scheduled for my glucose tolerance test that day. Let me just say, that super-delicious syrupy drink at 8am does not sit well on an empty stomach! The good news is that the follow-up ultrasound showed no cause for concern regarding premature labor. I’m still measuring about a week ahead, so I figure that is another sign that this little princess is growing strong and healthy every day. I can’t wait to meet her!

After my appointment I decided I had better take advantage of being in town, and get the rest of my Christmas shopping done. I’m rarely without the girls, so it was the perfect opportunity to pick up the remaining stocking stuffers, and a couple more gifts. I am happy to report that I am officially done with my Christmas shopping and almost all of the wrapping. And it’s a good thing, with this crazy weather we’ve been having!

I hope this last week before Christmas finds you all celebrating the many joys of the season. It is such a magical time of year, filled with so many memories. Enjoy yours!

Blessings,
Liz

Tell Sierra I want a mansion too! She is definitely a girl after my own heart. Do you have pictures from that little adventure?

Pittock Mansion sounds beautiful...How fun to get to walk through and look at all the different rooms. I was able to walk through a professional basketball players mansion once. So cool.
Love reading these when I know the outcome.
Happy Saturday.

Liz - you are such a great mom. Look at all of the fun activities you have been doing with your kids! I love your Countdown to Christmas idea. That is awesome. I have been being so bad keeping up with my personal blog and taking pictures of what we have been doing. I am going to be better this week!

Hey, I am having a linky party on Monday about homemade gifts and was wondering if you would link up? You are so creative ad have been doing so many wonderful things with your kids! You can link up an older post too. I think people would love to come over and see all of your great ideas!

Hope you are having a great weekend!

XOXO
Jen
