We had Thanksgiving dinner with the Jacobs family this year. I love that our family is so big now that we have to reserve the gym at a church just to fit us all in. It was so nice to see everyone and enjoy such an amazing meal together, especially since we won't see much of our family for Christmas this year. I love that I'm so close with my aunts, uncles, and cousins, and I love this time of year when we can all get together and catch up on what's been going on with everyone. I really appreciate the work everyone puts into making Thanksgiving so special, especially my grandma. She works so hard to make sure that everyone has what they need and that each part of the meal is delicious.
This is my Uncle Buba and his amazing 'stache of wonders. Pretty impressive, eh?
Love these two. They're so dang cute together.
Taylor had a great Thanksgiving this year, mostly because he got to sit at the kids table instead of a high chair this year. He loves my younger cousins (which are really more like his cousins) and thought it was so much fun to eat with them instead of the boring grown-ups. While we all cleaned up afterward the kids had so much fun running around and chasing each other. (And no, he's not chewing on his hand. He's got a bunch of corn in his fist that he's attempting to get in his mouth. I'm sure most of it ended up on the floor.)
After dinner we met over at my grandparent's house for pie and were able to visit some more. It was really exciting when everyone wished us luck this next week as they were leaving. It's so crazy to think that in less than a week I'll be in the hospital having a baby!
Here is my last belly shot. I feel enormous and uncomfortable and awkward, but so happy that we're in the final countdown now.
I feel great most mornings, but by the end of the day I'm usually rubbing my ribs and complaining about how huge my ankles are and how petrified I am of the upcoming c-section. I'm so grateful for my loving husband who holds me and rubs my back and makes me feel better. I'm so happy to be having another son with him, and I look forward to having his calming influence by my side when we head off to the hospital.
For now I'm trying to enjoy every second of our last weekend as a family of three. Six days to go!
