See You in 10 Days, Maybe Less and Maybe More

Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years are just around the corner and I can't help but think about how different these holidays are going to look for us now.  This time last year we had no idea that there would be a new little person celebrating these holidays with us this year.  We are so excited and so anxious at the same time.  

We know that he is "scheduled" to come in 10 days but it could be sooner or later.  All we really know is that we are on pins and needles waiting to meet our little man.  Greg talks every day about what all he is excited to teach and show Carson.  It is so fun.  Last night, we washed bottles and finished up little things in anticipation of meeting the little man.  Our hospital bags are packed and ready, his nursery is done and our hearts and minds are as ready as they can be.

Carson, we hope you know more than anything that you are loved.  You are loved by your parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and by so many other people.  Most importantly you are loved by the One who created you.  Your Dad and I can't wait to share with you about the One who created you.  He loves you more than we can ever imagine.   See you soon little man. 

My Wednesday Top Three

I don't know about you, but this dreary weather lately has put me in a major soup mood.  Luckily I have found the perfect soup that makes it all a little bit better.  You all know what I am about to say and that is that we should all thank The Pioneer Woman for her delicious recipe.  Check it out!
The whole soup starts with bacon, need I say more?  

I can officially begin listening to Christmas music without a lot of judgment.  There are still some people who give me the look of it is too soon and by some people I mean Greg.  However, I don't care.  Halloween is over and it is time for the wonderful sounds of Michael Buble, Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby and so on.

I have a confession, normally by now I am about 75% done with my Christmas shopping.  It pains me to say that I have not even started yet this year.  I do have a list of things I want to do but with the soon arrival of my Christmas present for this year it has been somewhat forgotten about.  Greg and I already bought ourselves a new camera to have for when Carson comes so we said for each other this year we could do one small gift for each other and stockings.  I have a feeling it will be simple all around this year and I am okay with that.  I do plan to try and find a few gifts at the Seminary Craft and Bake Sale this Saturday.  If you are in the area, check it out.

Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!
