Rex had a blast setting up the tree yesterday. We got one easy enough for the movers to handle when we are able to move into our new/old house. Greg played carols on the piano while Steph trimmed the tree and Rex ran around the room yelling, "Christmas tree, YES!" Rex also visited Santa, same one 3 years in a row... could he be the true Santa?
How in the world does one nest when the house you'll be living in when the expected baby arrives isn't done yet? It's driving me crazy! This is how I'm doing it: Making lots of lists of things I'd like to do to the house (one day), covering my dining room chairs and making a table cloth in sewing class, and roasting blue hubbard squash the size of my head to make pies and muffins (none of which I freeze for after the baby has arrived like I should be storing in a deep freeze that will be in said house). I eat the treats right away and think of more things to add to my list nesting wishes.
I've always meant to take a picture of Rex sleeping in his crib, he's so quiet and peaceful. This is one of the last times Rex slept in his crib as he has now decided to sleep in his "big-boy-bed." We are relieved he decided on his own to upgrade sleeping quarters and we won't be having to take his crib away when it's time for the new little one to have the crib. Also, pictures of Rex with his beloved baseball, "flying" in the kitchen and him drumming after church. Greg is proud to say, "He's a natural."
