9 days to go!!

Only 9 days left until we meet our bebes! We are so excited! And I will also be glad to be done being preggers πŸ™‚ I have my last NST and Ultrasound on Tuesday and our last appt with Dr. Smith on Thursday! He measured my belly this last week and was like “well, if there was only one kid in there, I’d be pretty worried at this point,…that would be one BIG kid!!!” I definitely feel like I’ve gotten bigger in the last week too.
And I don’t know how this happens, but I went for 9 whole months without getting sick…and now that I have 9 days left I wake up with a sore throat, plugged ears, runny nose and a horrible sinus headache. Oh well…I guess one small cold  isn’t much in the grand scheme of things. It just seems that it waited to come when I’m already feeling miserable/huge…now I feel sick/miserable/huge. Ok, I’m done complaining πŸ™‚
Nathan had me doing some crafting this past week…I get a little bored at home, I guess he thought this was a good way for me to be productive and lazy at the same time. =) I started decorating for fall,…because it is already feeling like fall and I won’t have time to do any decorating here in the next few weeks (imagine that!)
Here’s a few pictures of what I’ve been working on.

Wooden pumpkins from Craft Warehouse covered in “fallish” paper!

Stuck the paper on with decoupage and used an exacto-knife to cut off the edges. Then I used sand paper to  fine tune the edges and kind of rough them up.

Used brown ink to ink the edges….

 Viola! Done!! (I did add some swirly vine details on the orange one later, but I don’t have a picture)
Here’s some other fall decor around the house…

Ledge in the living room
Hutch in the dining room
Kitchen again

Anywhoo….that’s what’s up so far. I’ll be glad when Winco gets their gourds and mini pumpkins out to sell…I love those. And of course we will have to take the twins out to Job’s for their first pumpkin patch experience in October! πŸ™‚

Press on!
