I talked the hub into getting us tickets to the candlelight tour at Biltmore and I decided to drag Isaac along since he has never been in the house. I love the Biltmore house so it was a treat going during the Christmas season and seeing the house decorated with the many Christmas trees.
Here is what happened.... On our way to bring Josh's parents a generator we got stuck in the snow! The road to his parent's house was a mess and when a car tried to pass, Josh pulled over to the right. Needless to say he pulled a little too far and we slid right into the ditch! Even with the great four wheel drive and traction control we were unable to get the ole four-runner out! We ended up throwing on our snow gear (which we had packed in the car) and started walking up the road to his parents house. He called to get his dad to bring the tractor to pull the car out. Their driveway is impassable so Josh, Chris and his dad made a sled to pull the generator up the hill on the tractor. When we got to the house the power was back on.... oh well! I had my exercise walking up the hill 7 months pregnant and Isaac had fun riding with Paw-paw on the tractor!
The weather channel predicted snow but I didn't believe it until I saw flakes start falling around 8 o'clock this morning! School was cancelled and Josh's office was closed so we had a fun day playing at home. It snowed all day! We went out to play with Kel and Leslie this afternoon.... Isaac had a blast sledding and throwing snow balls. Josh even got his snowboard out and was able to snowboard down the hill. I didn't partake in the festivites but I did watch the fun. I had to wear Josh's boarding pants b/c of course mine wouldn't fit! I don't have the offical number of inches because we haven't measured yet. Here are a few pics of the snowy fun!
I am 26 weeks and counting.. and getting closer to the last trimester!! We had an OB appt today and everything went well. I had to do the glucouse screening which was not very fun at all. I haven't heard the results but I am sure they will call if something showed up. We are in the middle of rotating through the 5 doctors in the practice so we will know all the OBs when it is time to deliver. My BP was 108/62 and I gained 4 more lbs. Today was the first day they did measurements and my belly measured exactly 26 weeks. When the doctor tried to listen to his heart beat he kicked the doppler!! He kicked it everytime she tried to listen... he is definitely a fiesty little bug.
Well... he may be nameless for a while because my lovely husband wants to wait until we see him to give him a name! Hopefully I can convince him to make a decision before this new babe graces us with his presence. My sister is pushing for a name so she can monogram his belongings!
We did a little Christmas shopping while we were near the mall and finished getting Isaac's presents. He only gets 3 presents from Mom and Dad. Our philosophy is, "If 3 presents were good enough for Jesus then they are good enough for anybody!" We have been doing this the last two years and it works well. There is just not any sense in spoiling a child so lavishly when he has all he needs and wants.
