Our November

Most of this month has been spent inside because when I look out the window all I see is cold! I miss the fall weather. But alas, here we are anyway. At least I got to put up the Christmas tree, right? Here's what we've been up to lately-
Cason has taken an interest in the mail. He helps me open envelopes, and go through all the ads. Then he takes the ones he's interested in. This one here is from Disney with all their movies in it-And Family Fun, who wouldn't love going through that one-Every Thursday morning is spent here, watch the garbage truck go down our street-One of the few times Cason was able to get me outside. He grabbed his snow shovel and started relocating our extra pile of sand. I guess that's what you have to do when there's no snow-Cason loves to lay down and watch tv these days. And this tiger, a gift given to him for his birthday, is always with him. In his arms or as his pillow, he loves it! This Friday I will be at 23 weeks and there is no longer hiding the bump. It's hard to tell in this top but I am definitely pregnant and no longer have people staring at my belly wondering what's going on. Now they look at me and say, 'when are you due?' It's been a wonderful change- Cason is getting so grown up. I can no longer do anything on my own. He is always right behind me ready to help, especially if it includes something to do with cheese-Day after Thanksgiving we put up our tree and got it half way covered in lights before we ran out. After two trips to the store we finally got the whole thing covered (I guess that's what happens when you from a 5 foot tree to a 7.5 foot tree)- Cason helped us decorate and let me tell you, our tree is covered!! He wouldn't let any small space go without something. I love it! We finally have a real tree (and by that I mean a big one)! It's huge, it's bright, and it's got our family written all over it- We had a fabulous Thanksgiving spent with both sides of our family. This year we feel incredibly blessed being in a home, have a baby on the way, all of us strong and healthy, and Travis with a job that provides us with so much! We know these are gifts from our Savior and we could not be more grateful! We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and if not already, will have their trees up soon! Christmas is just around the corner and we cannot wait!
