34 Weeks

That's right, 6 weeks left until my due date! Which is good because I can barely tie my own shoes, I have to wear Quentin's T-shirts under my scrubs tops because mine are all too small, even the bigger scrub tops I bought are getting quite snug, and my scrub pants are not going to hold out much longer. I have also said adios to my ankles and have instead met my cankles. Pregnancy is definitely not the most fun experience, but it will be worth it to hold my little baby boy pretty soon!
At our last appointment we had to get an ultrasound because I was measuring small. Everything looked perfect, thankfully! They said I am probably just measuring small because he is sitting really, really low. They estimated his weight to be 4 lbs 3 oz, which is just below average. He seems to be growing quickly though! Anyway, here's the bump now...

Merry Christmas!

Well I didn't take any pictures at all this year for Christmas except this one... ...but that doesn't mean we didn't have a fun Christmas! The weekend before we did the Bell family Christmas in Willard. It was a fun weekend including a yummy breakfast, pizza, presents, food and family. And shooting guns for the guys...and Cassie :)
Quentin and I were going to do our Christmas on Christmas Eve when I got off work, but we got a little anxious and opened presents the day before. I got a camcorder that I LOVE along with some accessories, some scentsy, and a new timer for our kitchen. Quentin got the video game he has been waiting for (Black Ops), a tool bag, socks, a new white shirt for church and a flashlight. So I would say we both did pretty well this year :)
I had to work Christmas this year, but I didn't go in until 2 so we did Christmas with my parents and Aliisa Christmas morning. We opened presents and ate a really good breakfast and then everyone took a nap. Later that afternoon Quentin and Dad went to see a movie, so I think it ended up being a pretty good Christmas even though I had to work. And that means I don't have to work the next two years for Christmas. Next year will be Brady's first Christmas :)

Quentin finally got the score he needs to apply for the ultrasound program! This was his last chance to get the score before the applications are due this year so we are both so relieved. I am so proud of how hard he has been working and it is wonderful to see that it has paid off. This doesn't guarantee him a spot in the program, but now he will at least have the chance to apply.

Hendrickson Family

Here are a few pictures from the Hendrickson family photo shoot over Thanksgiving. As you can tell, we had an excellent (and very patient) photographer.

30 Weeks

Well, only about two months left until Brady makes his arrival! Things are still going well. I passed my glucose test, but my hematocrit levels are low so I am taking iron supplements. Here's my growing belly...

Thanksgiving in Utah

We were so lucky this year to be able to go to Utah this year for Thanksgiving with both the Moore side and the Hendrickson side of the family! It is always so much fun to have my family get together because it doesn't happen often. I can't believe how big Patrick and Luke have gotten...they sure are cute!

We got there Wednesday night and then Thursday we had Thanksgiving at Grandma Moore's. The food was yummy of course and it was fun to see everyone. Someone brought a little puggle puppy and she was SOOOO cute! Grandma Moore had just had chemo, so she wasn't feeling the greatest, but still seemed to be doing pretty well. Here's a picture of me and Grandma... Friday we were crazy and got up at 2:30 to do the Black Friday sales. We got a luggage set for a really good deal at Kohl's but it was insane and the line was forever long there to check out so we left Quentin with our stuff and headed to Target. Target was also really crazy. I don't remember it ever being so crazy here for Black Friday. Then we went to breakfast at Denny's and went back to bed for a while. That afternoon we did the Hendrickson Thanksgiving which was more delicious food and then we went to get family pictures. I'm sure it was a lot of work for the photographer to get so many people, but she did a good job. After that we all gathered again for games, but I was so tired so I didn't end up staying very late.

Saturday some of us went to a craft show and I got a cute Christmas decoration. I'm a sucker when it comes to Christmas decorations! Then we went to see Grandma Moore again. After that just our little group of Moore family got together to exchange our Christmas gifts. It's definitely the most fun to watch Patrick since he gets excited just to open any present. We all got to enjoy Cafe Rio after that...Mmmmmm wish we had one here. Mom made us aprons and Megan made one for Mom and they turned out really cute!

Sunday we came home. It was fun to see everyone, but it's always nice to get back home and I definitely missed my bed. Hard to believe the next time all the Moore girls will be together will be for Brady's blessing!
