Thursday Three: Christmas Edition

Remember when I actually used to do a Friday Five? Yeah that was fun. Here's a little Christmas edition on a Thursday. With only 3 random points. So it's not really the same thing at all.
(Aren't these hats weird and a little creepy? It's a cow's head for crying out loud!)

1. Matt is done with school tomorrow! You know, assuming the world doesn't end. Since I'm pretty confident that it won't, we're looking forward to two whole weeks of fun and traveling and family and friends. And food. Lots of food. Because let's face it, I have no self-control when it comes to tamales and dips and hash brown casserole and baked french toast and orange julius and cookies. None.

2. I'm purposely staying away from Pinterest this Christmas because I do not need another reminder that we're not doing something memorable every day of the month or doing a special daily advent reading or making fun treats to deliver to our neighbors (sorry guys, you will get a Christmas card though!). It's enough to make me feel like a big fat failure! We did attempt to go look at Christmas lights this week. Unfortunately, Avery fell asleep 10 minutes into our surprise PJ car ride. But really, I'm kinda liking this low key thing. Takes the pressure off. We're pretty much done shopping for this year, too. We're trying the 4 gift thing (that I found, ironically, via Pinterest last year) for each kid and each other: something you want, need, wear, and read. And while it's more expensive than last year's handmade Christmas, it's MUCH less time consuming. And really, most of what the kids will even remember is the time we spent together and hopefully how significant Jesus' birth is to the amazing story of salvation (thank you, Jesus Storybook Bible!).

3. And next Christmas we will have THREE kids!! Our little caboose is due August 7, 2013 and while it's pretty early to be making such an announcement (I'm only 7 weeks along), everything looked good at my appointment today and once Avery finds out tonight there will be no holding that big mouth back. :)

So there you have it. Good things come in threes. :) MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

You just snuck that last point in there like it wasn't a big ol' huge deal!


I'm excited to welcome you to the Girls from OCS Class of 2001 Who Are Having Babies in 2013 Club! We're growing in number by the day, it seems. :)

Congratulations Fisk5!!!

And yes, those hats are a bit creepy...I had to look close to see that they were actually cows!

"Jesus, the Storybook Bible" that the one by Sally Lloyd-Jones?

Congrats, Heather! And, Sarah! And, I guess I'm in that club, too! Wish we could all party!

Congratulations, you deserve to be in 'low key' mode!
