Merry Christmas to everyone, I got to talk to my husband today. Well I IM'd him yesterday and we got to skype last night at like 1130pm and then he got back on at 900am our time and watched us open a few gifts. He only had 30 mins but it was good to see him. He got a package from his parents today which he was excited about it was two new movie and a book. Which he watched I think both the movies today because he had the day off.  He also got my package last Saturday, and a package from the VFW here in New Plymouth that had a bunch of cool stuff in it. He loves getting packages and letters. I write him a ton of emails but i should be better at sending him some snail mail stuff to just so he can get some things in person. 

My Christmas was good, I got a rice cooker (which also steams veggies and will also do fondue). I got three movies, letters to juliet, when in rome, and santa clause 3. And I got a new hair straightener, it is pink, silver and white. And my final gift was a book I asked for on CD which I can use in my new car now. Yes you read that right I bought a new car, mine is on it's last leg the check engine light came on and it needs several new things, which would cost all to much to fix. So I spoke with Casey and we decided to buy a new car now (new to us not a NEW car) instead of waiting til he gets home. So I went looking and then took my dad with me and I bought a 2007 toyota matrix. It is bright red and only has 38,000 miles on it. I have driven it two days and love it already. I can't wait to bring our little girl home in it. Oh and for Casey to see it, I sent him a picture but I would like for him to drive it and give it the final okay. 
isn't it cute, I love it!!

I am getting more and more nervous about the baby coming, it is getting close there is only 7 weeks left til she is due to be here. I just hope that she stays in there til Casey comes. I have a bunch to do before she gets here, my mom and I are going to start on the nursery this week. We are painting it a light grey color, and I have a bunch of stuff to finish (i.e. curtains, a few blankets, a nursing cover, and a few other things.) I am excited though I think it will turn out really cute. :)
These are some projects I have been working on. 
This is a baby blanket that I am making for a lady at work she is expecting a grandbaby. When it is finished, it will have a cute light yellow back, and yellow trim on the front. I think it will turn out cute!

This is a John Deere blanket it that I am making for Adelyn I have another one that is pink and the John Deere green color. I will post pictures later. :)

Oh I got the best gift from Casey a few days ago, the military has a program that lets service men and woman video tape them reading a book and then they send the book and the DVD home and I got one on Christmas Eve. It made me cry, it was so sweet. I love it, Casey says that he will get to do several more and this way Adelyn will know what her daddy looks and sounds like. It is a special thing that the military is doing for families something that brings him a little closer, even though he is so far away from home.
 This is the book he sent, I don't know if you can read it but it says "to my darling baby, from your loving soldier daddy, Love you!" How cute is that!

Well I have a Dr.'s appointment on Tuesday, and then I have them every two weeks until she arrives. I love my dr. and trust him totally. He said when I am a month out, he will let me know if I can have the baby naturally or if I will have to have a C-section. We will see, I really don't care as long as she comes and is healthy and safe. I think that is about it right now, I will try and take some pictures as we make progress on the nursery. :) Love to all!
