Thanksgiving 2012

My niece, baby Zoe, just nappin' next to her cousin. They will be the best of friends!
Grandma Brinkerhoff made baby girl a blanket! All the granddaughters have butterfly blankets from her :)
Can you tell I love blankets?

This Thanksgiving was so wonderful! I was worried that I'd be spending Thanksgiving alone because of Eric's work schedule (and I wasn't about to travel without him, just IN CASE I went into labor) and then we needed to get the okay from the Dr. so that we could travel.... and everything worked out! We had Thanksgiving with the Brinkerhoff's and obviously I was enjoying myself too much to worry about pictures :) The food was amazing, the company was even better, and the pie.... oh the pie! Eric had been daydreaming about the pie for days leading up to Thanksgiving! The Brinkerhoff's don't mess around when it comes to their pie. There were 26 pies (plus extra pie crusts in case they needed to make more....) And only 25 people, total! It's safe to say that Eric ate at least 2 pies worth of slices in a day and a half, ha!
And my sweet in law's through a shower for baby girl!! She is so loved and spoiled :) We got some fun gifts and beautiful blankets! I'm just overwhelmed with gratitude! Now that Thanksgiving has ended... I'm just so excited to celebrate the most exciting Christmas of our lives with baby girl in my ARMS instead of my belly :)

my grandma made all of her grandkids blankets, too! we got to pick out the colors and style we wanted when we were around 10, but we didn't get them til we graduated high school! funny how your taste changes in that amount of time :)

One of the things I didn't like about 3rd trimester was my stomach shrinking to half its size - wasn't fair when it came to yummy food. :)
