Not at all Laura! We will be so glad to have you join us again!!!
Aww I've been really surprised by our dogs. We gave them one day with the tree naked and they played with it and pulled stuff off, but ever since we decorated it, they just sniff it and leave it alone.
Awww, Rach, I'm sorry ! Christmas trees and toddlers are a tough combo!! Adam doesn't touch the tree because it's pokey but he hits it and throws things at it constantly. We don't have ornaments though, lol, ours were all broken years ago so now we just string the lights on and make decorations for it every year.
Maybe put breakables out of their reach and other stuff its ok to touch at the bottom?
Aww, I understand though, you really have to protect your sanity, the girls will still have a wonderful Christmas!
Afm, lol, I seriously wake up every morning and am so excited that I'm still pg ! I told dh the other day it's a little bit like pulling out of your driveway to go to the store and out of 20 consecutive trips you get in a car wreck 12x with only 8 successful attempts. If you perchance decide to go to the store again because out of the last 3 trips you still haven't been able to get what you went out for in the first place, every mile you make it still intact is so encouraging but you can't shake the fear that danger is right around the corner.
It's not a perfect analogy but you get the idea . Obviously, it's worth chancing a "car wreck"...but having to start out again after every time just gets harder and harder. I never know how far I'm going to make it. On the upside though...experience has taught me to enjoy the ride for however long it lasts. Eta...lol, and let's face it, my "car" is on its last leg...not a whole lot of mileage left !!
So anyway, I know most of us celebrate the weekly change over but most nights I come to APA at midnight just to refresh the page and watch my ticker add one more day that I get to be pg .
Yaay for 6wks+2 !!!

Sugar cookie dough is made and chilling in the fridge so I think the girls and I will be rolling it out and baking this afternoon. I haven't decided if we will decorate them now or wait until tomorrow/Tuesday. If they are decorated they will get eaten a lot faster and we need some for Santa and a couple dozen to take to my parents house on Christmas. Next up I think I am making some cinnamon streusel muffins for Christmas breakfast. I will probably tackle that this evening after I have Olivia down so that I don't have to deal with two kids wanting to help.
Oh no the stomach flu has come upon our house...
And our tree is pretty bare too, only lights.

I'm still in between months for due date. Today's ultrasound definitely puts me in... June 30th or July 1st! Lol so I'll be still hanging out in both rooms!
I swear I feel like I've gotten huge overnight! Maybe it's just the shirt.... IDK, but if I look like I feel like I look, my family just might figure it out at Christmas!!! Maybe it's all in my head
Anywho... Merry Christmas everyone!
Jessica (34) DH (39) This is a first for both of us
I am down to two pairs of jeans that work and the pair that is actually remotely comfortable I found a wear hole between the legs (darn these fat thighs rubbing together). They are pretty old so I guess they have done their duty. Good thing I think my sister is giving me a couple pairs of maternity jeans for Christmas. They are going straight out of the packing and onto my bum. So ready to rock the maternity jeans!
Sweaters are the worst, but hey I don't have to hide it from anyone anymore so I don't care!
I'm glad I'm too early to have to think about hiding my bump over Christmas . And I'm glad family doesn't know yet...not up to answering questions and fielding comments (being pg with a 5th+ baby seems to push some peoples' rude and stupid comment button) .
I've discovered that if I have a super busy day and don't focus on eating well and staying hydrated; the next day I'm nauseous and exhausted. The holidays are wonderful but my body is craving routine .
