Maternity Photos

My photos came! MY PHOTOS CAME! I had a really difficult time trying to narrow down the proofs because I wanted them all, but I figured I'd want more pictures of the baby (yes, we are having newborn pictures done as well) so we'll splurge then and buy all the proofs. Hard to believe we have about eight weeks left until we get to meet our little girl.

At a glance - May/June

It seems like it has been a busy month and I haven't been able to blog as much. I've also been sick this past week with an awful cough, but I'm feeling much better now, just a slight cough. Unfortunately, Matthew is now sick. I'm taking a page out of my friend Marlee's book and doing a recap of the past few weeks through some photos I have on my phone.
- I finished my first quilt!
- Angelina really wants to lick my ice cream bowl
- My anniversary gift from Matthew, a desk fan to help keep me cool at work. Something I really needed. We're still planning on doing a nice dinner out, maybe a luau, but with the busy month and now sickness it hasn't happened yet
- At 30 weeks, my baby bump is getting a little out of hand. It's making reading difficult since it covers part of the page and I don't really like resting my book on my belly
- We're participating in the Hawaii State Library summer reading challenge, this weeks prize was a lanyard and some dried fruit snacks
- Milkshake and hamburger date night with the hubby after a long day at the doctor getting vaccines and gestational diabetes testing
- Dixie likes to cuddle with the baby bump
- Started my second quit
- Had a maternity photo shoot. Can't wait to see how all the pictures turn out

Christmas in May?

Don't you hate it when you write a blog post up then forget to post it? Anyways, here what we did a few weeks ago.

Well it's not July (or December for that matter) but we decided to celebrate Christmas anyways! We planned on celebrating Christmas as a family after we moved since it didn't make sense for us to fly in December when we were moving in January. So after we finally got settled and now that Matthew's brother finished university and is now home as well and some coordinating of some busy schedules, we celebrated Christmas in May!
Matthew dug out his Christmas shirt.
Decorations and presents are required. Christmas music was also played.

Setting out dishes for our yummy dinner.
We had a delicious Christmas dinner. Janet did an amazing job at decorating. It really did feel like Christmas. 

I kind of love the idea of celebrating Christmas at a different time in the year now. New tradition anyone?
