A Weekend Spent Waiting

Well, I'm still pregnant. Sigh. While this is not the most pregnant I've been, I am so ready to have this baby! So to distract myself from the fact that I'm not busy having a baby, we packed a lot into our weekend.

Trent had his First Reconciliation on Friday evening at church! Leading up to Friday, he was really anxious about it and kept saying he wasn't going to do it. We told him he could write everything down, and that seemed to make him calm down, but when we got there Friday, he said he didn't need his paper, and it went great. When he finished, he said 'It was good. He was nice.' It was special for me because the priest he saw is the priest who was at my childhood church for YEARS and did a lot of my sacraments.

Waiting in line

 This just made me laugh Friday night. She is such a pack rat in bed.
She has a stuffed animal, her ceramic handprint, books, and her hand in a bowl of grapes.

Fort building with Daddy!

A little Home Alone 2 action - they think it is hysterical. I love hearing Trent laugh.

Saturday night, Brent's parents kept the kids so we could go out. We went to a local restaurant and then to get snow cones! Yes, in December. {grin}

Brent doesn't enjoy pictures documenting our lives!

Brent's mom sent pictures of Christmas cookie baking.
Her outfit SLAYS me.

This was our 3rd year to make Gingerbread houses, and I have bought the kits every year from our local grocery store. Well, this year I had to assemble the houses and let them dry for 4 hours - ugh. So I did that Saturday night.

Ready for the kiddos! {10:30 pm no less, ha}

Sunday morning I had contractions for about an hour and a half. I thought this HAD to be it given I was 40 weeks, 3 days. Well, joke was on me - who in the world is PAST DUE and has contractions that die out? THIS GIRL. Ugh. But I did do a load of laundry, pick up the kitchen and living room, and run the dishwasher. So upside?

When we got the kids back, they were so excited to decorate their houses.

My little hams

Finished houses - they are posing with 'mistletoe eyes'.
Love these 2!!!

So that is how we spent what is HOPEFULLY our last weekend as a family of 4.

I was loading bloglovin this morning and thought "I wonder if Allena is still pregnant" and then your post showed up, haha. Does your doc have a max date set or are they the "go as long as you like" kind?
