24 Weeks & Chrismas Tree Hunting


Yup, 24 weeks already! Baby is only a bit more than a pound, most babies are around 7-8 pounds... where am I gonna put it all?? Some days I already feel like I'm gonna pop! I feel him kick frequently now... and I'm still feeling like my normal self. (This photo is definitely adding 10 lbs) :-)

This past weekend we drove up north a few miles to Fly Away Farms and cut down our Christmas Tree. My mom picked one out too, isn't she cute? She was so excited to find a 4ft tall tree for her place. Justin made her cut it down on her own, but she did it! This little tree even fit in her trunk~
(Thanks Amanda!)

We, being the Dave Ramsey followers that we are, chose a tree from the "discount" field where all the trees were $20, a bit wonky, very tall, and bare on the bottom. This poor tree we cut off about 3ft up, and when we got home cut another foot off the bottom.

And here she is! All decorated and brightly shining. NOW I'm ready for Christmas! Well, almost... still have a bit of Christmas shopping to finish, then I'll be ready! Oh, and a quilt to finish! Will be working on that tonight, actually!

Photos of my finished Wonky Orange baby quilt will be posted tomorrow! Wheeeeeeeeeee!!!!

We do that too! But we go to teh forest as there are no tree farms in our neck of the woods. The trees are ... creative.

Yeah, you're not quite there yet! Just a little while longer and you will feel ready to pop. You look great and so does your tree. :)

Your tree looks great -- it's wonderful that you cut down your own. And (speaking as a mom of three), you're going to get a lot bigger -- be prepared.

You have the cutest belly! You'll feel like you can't possibly get any bigger, but you do! 16 more weeks to grow! :-)

I love these photos of you each week - you have the cutest baby bump! ;) I hope you are taking pics of your shirt raised up (for your eyes only) too! :) as those are some of my favorites that I took myself. Only I didn't do it ever week.. wish now I had.

Love your Dave Ramsey style tree - it looks great!

and thanks for the tip on Gutermann tread for binding... I'll give it a try!

Love from Texas! ~bonnie

Haha, did your dog get bored of looking at your belly? Now it's a Christmas tree (a very nice one, I may add). Glad everything's going smoothly with the belly-growing activity!

Cheers,
Christine

Wow, you've got so much bigger since your last photo!

Your tree is really pretty and it's so cool that you got to cut it down yourself. We got ours from the garden centre but I'm sure hubby would LOVE to go out and chop one down instead!

Christina said...

You're gonna get a lot bigger yet! :) That's how it is with boys - all out front (for the most part). I was the same way, wondering where I was going to put all that baby. As for kicking, in another few weeks its going to be so different. :)
