I was uploading pictures from my camera and found some from our Bible study’s RAISH. They were so wonderful to help rake our yard while I cooked up some fish from them. Here are a few of the helpers; I wasn’t able to get them all.

Jay was one of the three men who were brave enough in our birthing class to wear the sympathy belly. Here are a few pictures from my phone.

This past weekend we were able to travel to each of our parent’s house for Thanksgiving. It was one of the most relaxing trips we've taken I would have to say. Jay did a few unique things while we were up there too.
My dad and Jay made homemade rolls for Thanksgiving dinner. My mom and I were able to sit in the recliners with our feet up and enjoy the show.
It was entertaining to say the least and the rolls were amazing!
Next on the unique things done list was stuffing and smoking deer bologna. The process starts with mixing deer meat with hamburger and the right amount of seasoning. Then you put it into a casing and smoke it for about 8 hours. I got the tail end of the process.
Last but not least, knitting. Cara brings her friend Ky home for the holidays and we have a blast. This year Ky wanted to learn now to knit…. Which started a knitting party. Jay took part and we even learned that my dad knew how to knit at one point in time. He had knit a scarf that all of us kids used to wear when we went sledding.
While at home, we were able to see my older sister Nina, her husband Joel, and their son Wyatt. Since he is about one and half, it’s a little harder for them to travel so it is always a treat when we get to see them. Here’s a picture of the ‘little’ guy. He’s not so little anymore. He’s growing up so fast!

That was the first two days of Thanksgiving. The second two were spent with Jay’s parents. We were able to relax and watch some college football and cheer on both Ohio State and Wisconsin. Darlynn put together a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner.
We even got to watch a movie later that night as a family.
The next day I was able to get a few new items to decorate our home for the Christmas season from Darlynn. Here is the final product.
Before we headed south on Sunday, we tried out the new Buffalo Wild Wings in Owatonna and watched some of the Packer game.
Then the short, yet seems super long when you’re pregnant, trip started.
An update from home:
I took some time off work to get things a little more ready around the house. We have a few things left to purchase for our little girl’s room, but overall things are pretty set and ready for her. I’m working on cleaning up the rest of the house, because I know I will soon lack a lot of motivation to do any of the regular household chores.
I’m right on track according to the doctor and things are looking great. I forgot that I haven’t put up a picture for a long time. Here we are at 32 weeks!
