Week 35: Seriously, now.

We had our first real snowfall last night. It was beautiful, an icing-sugar snow that Chris was able to just sweep off the driveway this morning.



I was picking up baking supplies in Trevor (and yes, of course I played with the handbrake, but there wasn't enough snow or ice yet... patience...), and admiring the Christmas lights, and of course, what should come on the radio but "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas".



Needless to say, I was a wreck by the time I got home.



Despite the sobs, the Domestic Goddess managed to bake a double batch of cherry-coconut macaroons, freeze 6 dozen of them, clean up, and help around the house a bit before I fell into bed. Well, before I hefted myself up into bed, anyway.



The renovations are almost done! The painter comes in today, so in another week, tops (fingers crossed!), maybe I can build a crib and dresser or something. It doesn't look like I'm very pregnant, does it?



Speaking of that, everybody into the pool! We've developed a nice little baby pool for the Huffalump, with scoring and a well-formatted spreadsheet and everything, so start emailing in your guesses on:

  • Date (my estimated due date is January 7th)
  • Time (to the closest hour)
  • Sex (50/50 chance!)
  • Length (in inches)
  • Weight (in lbs and oz)


The prize, so far, is bragging rights, but we're open to suggestions!

Pool submission:
- December 27th - judging by most recent picture, there's no way you can go longer without exploding ...
- 3 a.m. - just because babies like to appear at inconvenient times...
- Girl! - because, though they can be cute and lovable, they are also stubborn and pesky ... and it's payback time!
- 19 inches - a nice average amount. Hey, even you were 19 inches at birth!
- 7 pounds - I know, you were only 5 lbs 4 oz, but I wasn't as 'HUGE!' as you are!!!!!
;-) Mommmmmmm
p.s. Winner of the pool should be flown to your bedside within a week of the Big Event!
