Happy Thanksgiving 2011

Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving Day with the family! I know you Canadians celebrated yours over a month ago.  :)  I hope you had a great time as well.

Here are 10 things I am thankful for...

1. To God for graciously sparing me through another year.

2. The love and support of a wonderful husband.

3. The love and fellowship with both the Moerdyk and Bergsma families.

4. The health of a growing child inside me for the last 19 weeks.

5. The stability of a job I enjoy and one for my husband.

6. The ability to worship Christ without any persecution like in other countries.

7. A warm, cozy house to live in, especially as the weather gets colder.

8. The ability to purchase a new family vehicle this year.

9. The blessings of a church family environment.

10. To God for the gift of grace and forgiveness.


Baby Room Finds

Here are some Craig's List finds that I came across and wanted to share with you!  Isn't it always nice when you come across something that can work perfectly in your home and costs at least 4 times as much brand new?!?!  I always get excited when that happens.  Well, this is just a sneak peak at these two items.  You will have to wait in anticipation for the finished furnished room once I get everything I need for it.  For now, here is the crib and changing table. :)



It snowed here today and seeing that just made me start thinking more about Christmas and all that I have to do yet before hand! oh well. It still looked beautiful outside, though I wasn't quite sure if I am ready for the snow. :) Still nice to look at.

I was just looking at these websites in preparation for ordering Christmas cards and noticed theses specials that I wanted to pass along.
Snapfish has 100 prints for $1.00 or 300 prints for $3.00 till Sunday.
Codes: SPOOKY100 or SPOOKY300
They also have a buy get one free on their photo cards.

I don't know if you need that many prints, but like me, I know some of you design a regular print size 'card' and order prints instead of the more expensive photo cards.


16 weeks

Here is an update on how things are going so far with baby and me! Friday morning I had another doctor's appointment where we heard another strong heartbeat. Everything is looking and sounding good so far, according to the doctor, for which we are thankful for.

Here is a picture of what baby looks like now:
