Our first afternoon off the kids enjoyed some popcorn and an old favorite; Chicken Run.
-Jenny H. gave me Wal-Mart's version of Pro-Active and my face is already better after just 24 hours. Thank you Jenny! The bulk of the redness is gone, there are no new blemishes and the old ones are obviously healing.
-Today I plan to do some deep cleaning and a bunch of baking. Jess T. is heading over to lend a hand and I'm excited to see what we can accomplish today. I need to get my bread baked for Thursday's stuffing, I want to make some chocolate chip cookies, rolls, and whatever else I can think of.
-The boys think that vacation is too good to be true. Brennan asked me this morning if we would have to make up the days off we are enjoying. He seems pretty concerned :)
-Apparently as I've gotten older I've acquired a shellfish allergy. Over the last couple years if I get anywhere near shrimp when I'm pregnant I end up with horrific abdominal pain and vomiting. Typically once the baby is born I'm okay and can eat it again without issue. That's not the case anymore. I have eaten shrimp 2 or 3 times while not pregnant and even though I don't have the violent vomiting I have terrible abdominal pain that is on the verge of intolerable. We went out to dinner last night and I had shrimp and sure enough within a hour of eating it I was seriously regretting it. No more shrimp for me thank you very much.
-My family is coming on Thursday and Jared's family is celebrating on Dec. 5 so we get to spread out our thankfulness this year. I'm just really excited to spend time with family. We have so much to be thankful for.
