How are you all doing?  Ready for Christmas?

I'm doing okay, myself.  I went to yoga today for the first time in months and it felt amazing, but I'm physically wiped now.  Just want to sit around and do nothing.  Thumper is doing well, bouncing around in my uterus and just generally being active.  The ultrasound showed a healthy baby.  :)  The only thing that's really crummy is that everyone but DH and the dog has a cold!  Monkey was home from school most of last week and today as well.  Everyone has a croupy cough.  All in all, it's just no fun.  But, Christmas is coming and we're all excited for that, especially the boys!  I'm mostly ready -- a few more things to pick up, and a few more things to wrap, but I'm feeling pretty organized and confident about it.  Looking forward to the big day!  We'll start our gingerbread house soon, too, which the boys will enjoy.  I printed a template for a really cute house, but I'm thinking of doing three little ones instead -- maybe four, so that DH and I have something to munch on, too.  Not that I need it.  I'm feeling a little down because I've put on thirty pounds already this pregnancy, which makes me about thirty pounds overweight even accounting for baby weight.  I really need to get more exercise and eat a little less, although what I do eat is fairly healthy.

I've planned a few play dates for the boys but they've been foiled because of the colds.  At least I planned them, which is a big step for me!

We put up our Christmas tree on Saturday and decorated it yesterday.  The house smells sooooo good. It's super crooked, though.  Turns out the trunk is all wiggly.  It's cute, anyway!

This site would not let me post for the longest time!!! I am glad that you and the baby are doing well. You have your hands full! My mom used to make gingerbread houses with my kids every year, they would make large house. We have the halls decked. My dd comes home from college on the 20th. Ds is busy trying to dig his himself out of an academic hole he has gotten in himself. Sigh, there Is a lot of reading and homework and studying as finals come soon after. ARG!! I expect him to at least make the regular honor roll. He has club hockey, scouts and jazz band as well.

I was wondering what had happened to you!  Glad to know everything is okay.  Are you enjoying your holly-days?  And your visit from DD?
