Are you counting the days? I know I am!

Finally I have a moment to sit and blog! Life for the past week has been pretty busy. I'll go back through and give you a brief overview. Lets see...Friday we cleaned up and prepared for visitors who came late that evening. Saturday we visited and watched the men play pool and Sunday we said goodbye as they drove off for home. :( We did another quick clean up as we had another round of company coming. My Aunt, Uncle and Cousin came and installed some carpet in the basement here so our little tootsies wouldn't be cold when walking around. Carpet is really fascinating so I'll even show ya what it looks like :)





It's kinda tan and green really low profile commercial grade type stuff. Great for the basement! The kids have played down there a lot more in the last few days, makes a mom happy :)


Then starting on Monday a friend and I have been cooking up a storm trying to stock our freezers (she's pregnant too). So far we've made:



Lasagna, burritos, breakfast burritos, Stuffed shells, Spaghetti sauce, banana bread, blueberry muffins and instant oatmeal (blueberry, banana and apple cinnamon). There have been lots of cute moments amongst the busy-ness too...


Here's Abe taste testing the oatmeal...he definately approved!


Little hands helping hold shells as they are being filled...






Little buddies...yeah, they know they're cute!


Then there was yesterday, a day of contractions for me...all day every 10-15 minutes or so. Only stopping when I laid down to rest last night, UGH! I'm back to feeling 'normal' today so the plan is to cook more :P



On the agenda today is: More muffins (peach, berry?), turkey soup, King Turkey Ranch casserole, BBQ shredded turkey (for sandwiches) and make another large batch of Laundry soap.



We'll see how it goes.

I'm ashamed of myself!

I'm not pregnant and you are doing more than I ever do, and you're due any day!!!

I think you lit a fire under me, though.

I need to get of my tushie and quit being lazy and get 'er done!

Thanks for the reminder!

Well, Friday IS tomorrow, so you can keep on having those contractions....it'll work out so nicely for me.

and the carpet it way cooler than I imagined it. I even sortof like the half/half thing you have going on. It's artsy.

You are a very industrious pregnant person- put me to shame and I have 2 less children and am not even expecting! Hope all goes well with your delivery.

You are SO nesting. I can't wait for the new baby post. Hope you're having it RIGHT NOW!

Wow, look at all your MegaCooking!!
Good for you, I know you'll appreciate all those meals in the freezer.
I'm going to the next post and take a guess, my family does this for every pregnancy too. Too funny!

It's about time for me to start freezing things. I'm due the 18th. But just thinking about it and I'm tired!! I don't know how you do it with all those kids!
I have contractions every night. Very frustrating since I don't expect ever go into labor. I only went into labor with my first one, the other three were induced. :-(
Nice to meet you.
