Abby with her cousins during Thanksgiving Dinner.
We had a fun day today. There was a parade in Downtown Olympia. Abby's first parade! The first in line was MOTORCYCLES -- LOUD ONES. Abby was mesmerized with them. And she enjoyed the horses, bands, all kinds of people marching down the street. She even ate a candy cane for the first time. She absoluely loved it. She sat on daddy's shoulders.
Later tonight, I asked her what she liked about the parade and she said "Drums!" She was smiling ear to ear. It was really sweet seeing her all happy about today.
I made a fresh pumpkin pie today. A friend of mine at work gave me some pumpkin puree that she made herself. I told her I am used to making pumpkin pies out of canned pumpkin, and she jumped saying that once I try fresh pumpkin pie, I'd never go back to canned pumpkin again. She dared me... (sighs).... I have to admit, she's right!!! Now, I'll have to look all over for sugar pumpkins next fall.
My friend, who's pregnant, was due last Tuesday... Today's Sunday... I emailed her to see what's up, and she said nope, no baby yet. She's FIVE days overdue. Wow... I was going to visit her sometime this week with dinner, but since no baby yet, I'll have to wait.
I'm now 18 weeks along. The ultrasound will be in two weeks. I sure can't wait!!! I am glad it'll happen before Christmas, then people will know what to shop for. (winks) Seems 99% people still says it's a boy. I really don't care what it is, as long as it's very healthy.
Ok, signing off now. :-)
